Question DetailsAsked on 5/28/2016

How much would it cost to build 2 story stairs with 3 landings

it would be 2 sets of stairs, basement one is 12' height with 2 landings, and 3 sets of 6 stairs, the first floor stairs would have 1 landing and 2 sets of stairs. There would be railings on the open areas.

You would have to get specific bids from your area - your picture would not open for me, but sounds pretty complex with all the landings.

A rough framed (like unfinished basement) staircase can run $40-70/step typically, normal laminate or carpet surfaced straight stairs commonly in the $70-125/step range, multi-landing or open-design steel framed commonly $100-150/step, and higher end with solid hardwood or stone treads can commonly run $200/step or more - VERY rough ballparks.

These assume of course normal supporting structure - if a cantilevered off the wall type or spiral or "floating" design (no supports under landings - only top and foot supported), can run well over $200/step and into the $400-500/step in exotic cases, or for very wide fancy staircases.

And of course if structure has to be cut out, like to put in the basement stairs, you cost can go up significantly depending on how much of a hassle reframing to support the floor loads is.

And of course if you get exotic or custom-materials for the railings and bannisters, that can get into the $100-200/LF range as well. More on those costs here -
