We wanted to use Tim Miller but he never returned my calls. I thought he was out of business but then heard he was doing work for others.

call Alan Byer at 352-205-7504. His price is right and service is as promised. Both aluminum and wood stairs have a railing. Wood stairs are cheaper.

We have Aluminum stairs from Tim The Tool man who did a nice job on the attic stairs and epoxy floor in the garage. We choose alum because it has a higher weight capacity. We also had Tim paint it since we are part timers and we didn't want paint stored in the garage. But to your question about the railing, the railing is not normally the problem when trying to put up bulkier items, it is the hinges that get in the way,so wood or aluminum most likely have the same issue.
When buying plastic tubs you need to buy the smaller ones so the hinges will not foul you up.

I second that. He also installed some attic flooring for me. Very happy with his work. And his price was reasonable.

I also used Bernie Coluccio for my attic stairs. He gave a good price and did a great job, and even painted the pull down and trim to match the ceiling as part of his service.

I would definitely recommend Bernie Coluccio for this job and any other handyman job you might have. Very reliable fellow, and a good neighbor.

Our friends were told that the ceiling drywall in the garage is a necessary part of fire protection. So they had the contractor screw the panel back onto the stairway cover, and adjust the springs for the extra weight. Has anyone else done that?

That's why the builder doesn't install them. Won't pass life safety inspection by fire dep't.
