Hi, I'm Kurt. When I was younger, I broke the wooden railing on our staircase when I was sliding down it. My mom was so mad! I was grounded for weeks and had to rebuild it. Unfortunately for my mom, my construction skills don't exist. The staircase looked horrible. It did more damage than it was worth, and my mom had to pay for a contractor to come completely replace it.
I eventually had to learn enough handyman skills to deal with small and even major repairs like the railing. I'm nowhere near a contractor, but I started this site to share the small knowledge I have of repairs and the construction world.
