Carpentry & Joinery Question
My staircase joint has become misalign due to internal movement - for which i don't know what.
Whatis the best way of rectify the situation wihtout having to replace the staircase...
It would be best to get a carpenter to look at it. You can usually repair and replace most parts on a stair case with out replacing the whole staircase.
