Designer/Sales representative SCOTT LYLE did an amazing job for me! He stuck with me over 2.5 years as I decided on (and postponed) launching the stair project. He never lost my contact info and was extremely prompt in getting new design drawings to me and informing me of my... options. Ultimately, I opted for a powder-coated Al grating stair. Please hold onto SCOTT, because he is a huge asset for Saulter!I had read some bad Yelp reviews lurking around on the web. This made me a bit paranoid, but so far none have materialized. The stair reached me intact and undamaged. It is half assembled now and looks great! The only hick-up was that I live on a small road -- too big for the delivery trucks. I used my F-150 truck to pick it up at the delivery hub without issue. So smaller delivery trucks would be my only suggestion on improvement. Overall, I would highly recommend Saulter to my friends.read more

Easy to install stairs. I like the open air look and the speed on what I put them up. It is easier with 3 people. It took us 4 hours to complete the job. The only issue i found on the galvanized coating is there are some sharp areas from the dipping, but not terrible, but I may... ask for them to send me a new rail. The rest I am very happy with. It is very sturdy. The customer service is great.read more

High Quality Materials. Amazing Engineering and Precision. Must have experience with tools prior installation. Costumer service is open to any question.

Kevin was very accommodating and helpful throughout the design process and making our order. Everything arrived in good condition and jsut as he said it would.
20:01 07 Jan 20
I received my stairs on time, and with delight, they were above and beyond my expectation and build with heavy steel and the construction was superb.I highly recommend this company for all your stair needs.

Our entire experience was fantastic using Salter spiral stair. From sales to customer service we were treated with respect and had answers in a timely manner.
12:12 16 Dec 19
Excellent customer service before, during and after the project was complete. Quality materials and hardware. Out-performed two local companies to win our business. We look forward to using this company again and again.
17:47 15 Dec 19
Overall, a positive experience, and excellent customer support during the design & purchase phases. BUT! The instructions for the installation of the balusters could not be followed. It took me about an hour of reading, re-reading, and trying according to the instructions, but I... had to revise them significantly in order to install them.read more
16:19 09 Dec 19
Good service and good product. Odd there was no cap for the centerpost, or any touch up paint included in the package. That said, as described and on time.
19:09 07 Dec 19
Easy order and payment process. Arrived today on in great shape. Installed very easily.
13:47 27 Nov 19
We had great help while we were designing the stairs. Received the materials in perfect condition, and the wood is absolutely beautiful. Will send you a picture of it when we install it.

I ordered a spiral staircase kit from Salter in July of this year. It was delivered ahead of the expected delivery date with all components in good order. I installed the staircase by myself although having additional help would have been useful during certain critical... steps.The quality of workmanship and materials exceeded my expectations. The parts fit together perfectly. The instructions were easy to follow. I am extremely pleased with the results.read more
17:19 02 Nov 19
Instructions were thorough and easy to understand. Screws, washers, etc. were clearly labeled. Only problems encountered were with one of the treads not being powder coated, and several of the aluminum pieces not being drilled correctly; they had to be reamed/cleaned out for... use. Otherwise, we are thrilled with the spiral stair and very glad that we have it.read more

Every part of doing business with you folks was positive. You have a good product and are communicative and organized. Our stairs are up!
12:01 11 Oct 19
The company was very helpful and provided the spiral stairs quickly.
17:20 07 Oct 19
I would highly recommend Salter. They were very helpful and worked with me every step of the way to insure I got the product I needed. There pricing was very competitive and everything is manufactured in the USA.

I was online shopping for a spiral staircase. Came across a few options, I liked the selection and options Salters had. The first salesman I encountered was Andrew. I felt we had a difference of opinion and I wasn't to impressed. I gave them a second chance and was put into... the well capable hands of salesman Brett. I was amazed at how he was able to design exactly what I was looking for in no time. His professionalism was outstanding. Due to his efforts I proceeded with my order. The finished product looks amazing. I will say there were several issues with the quality control department of missing parts and holes not pre-drilled as the directions indicated. I was able to get in touch with customer service and they were eager to make things right. Although I spent more then anticipated due to not receiving the correct pieces, a flaw on Salters end. The finished product was better then anticipated. Although it was frustrating that a company that’s sole purpose is to design spiral staircases. I was amazed at the lack of items that were overlooked by the quality control department. However these stairs were not a custom job, they went by very simplified dimensions, so I would most CERTAINLY, recommend Salters products, but I have to say if it were not for the outstanding job of their customer service team and Brett my salesman, my outlook would differ. However you cannot discount the finished product and how the end result enhances any home project in adding a spiral staircase. In closing, do not hesitate to order from Salters they build a quality product at a fair price. Hopefully you get to experience a salesman as Brett Amoroso who takes pride in his job and goes the extra mile. I thank him and the excellent customer service team as Colleen and Kahiem, who also made the experience pleasant.read more

We had a phenomenal experience with Dan at Salter Spiral. We seriously shopped about 20 pptions and businesses, but Dan was the 1st person who generated 3D models to meet our custom specs. He demoed via webinar the features that make the Salter stair superior to others in the... industry that only meet minimum standards. We needed over 13" floor-to-floor in an enclosed space. The custom stair they built us is fantastic. Having a custom engineered stair meant we did not need to measure each individual stair placement, saving hours and uncertainty. We are beyond pleased with the purchase, results, and all communication with multiple Salter team members.read more
17:20 17 Sep 19
Great product, great customer service and fast turnaround time. We would definitely do business with Salter Spiral Stair again!
15:15 29 Aug 19
Ordering process was very smooth with great assistance from the salesperson. They screenshared with me to show the 3D render and to verify all details. Well packaged, all parts arrived in excellent condition despite being trucked across the country. Good documentation on how to... install it.read more

This is my third stair purchase from Salter Spiral. This particular order was challenging but Salter, and Mike Taylor of Salter, were excellent. Multiple calls to discuss exact heights, reviewing pictures and double and triple checking all of the details happened without a hint... of impatience. I received the order at the project site and it was spot on. I appreciate Salter for their excellent customer service and top notch product. Highly recommend.read more
18:54 14 Aug 19
We've used Salter for multiple stair purchases over the last couple of years. Continued excellent customer service combined with a quality product. Highly recommended.

20:06 17 Jul 19
Experienced professionals. Know the answers to your questions. Staircase that was delivered was exactly what we were expecting.
00:34 13 Jul 19
Very good quality for the price. The directions made it easy to assemble in one day.
05:07 11 Jul 19
As a do it yourself homeowner, the rep for Salter stair was very patient and walked me through step by step in order to get me what I needed. At the end of the process I was most pleased with the end results.

Great company to work with!

Mitch was real helpful as far as getting me unloaded even though I was having trouble getting here and past Receiving hours Even though I only had 2 skids 7,000#'s but he still got me unloaded thanks
04:34 11 Apr 19
Product, order process, expertise, and pricing was all great. The only issue I had was with the shipping. That box had unbelievable damage to it, luckily the stairs are well made and was not damaged, and no pieces missing, but the pole was heavily damaged on the end, I don’t... want to deal with getting a replacement. I’m hoping to use a hammer to try and reshape it so it can fit into the base.read more

Everything was delivered on time and went together pretty easy, I have never done this before and figured it out in a day. The railing for my loft however did not come with instructions and I had to request them with added a day to my project. Otherwise it went pretty slick,... good customer service.read more
23:47 27 Mar 19
They were with every step of the way from design to shipment. Very easy to work with and kept the price reasonable. The product is amazing. A real show stopper and well constructed. Would recommend them highly. Thanks Natalie
17:38 25 Mar 19
Very happy with the product. After delivery I spread the parts out on the floor and could see it was going to be easy. You do need aleast two people but everything fits and you can go right by the directions. The design went well ( I go t what I asked for ). Delivery went well.... Driver helped with off load. Greg on the sales end of things made it a smooth transition. Staircase done in one day.read more
13:25 23 Mar 19
Everything fit well and the end product is great. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is that one of the set screw holes that lock the tread to the center post was not tapped. If you are assembling one of these check all the holes beforehand that way you can avoid disassembling... and reassembling just to tap a small hole. Overall the parts all fit together for a beautiful stair.read more
18:53 12 Mar 19
Very professionally done with outstanding quality. The only problem was the numbers on the individual parts to the staircase did not match the tags on each individual parts. Project came out very well.
17:15 06 Mar 19
Very happy with our staircase. The process was smooth from beginning to end and it was great to get updates from the company letting us know where our staircase was in the process.
16:18 06 Mar 19
It was a most satisfying experience to work with Kevin, Lindsay, and the whole Salter team to design, build, and deliver my spiral stairs. I was impressed with the initial design and quote process, the quick response to all of my questions both during and after delivery. The... stairs arrived a day earlier than promised, and were well packaged. The stairs are made of high quality materials the fit together perfectly. They are very sturdy, and the finished stair look great. I got two other quotes for comparable stairs. Salter was competitive on price, and superior on customer service. The only problem I had was one chipped oak tread and a set screw hole that wasn't tapped. Customer service send a replacement for the tread and paid for a tap to cut the threads for the set screw. I recommend Salter Spiral Stair without reservation.read more

The stairs arrived exactly as described, tracking was easy and the stairs were delivered as estimated
11:16 20 Feb 19
Its a beautiful staircase, very solid. However, the railings that go around the opening were made 5/16" to long. They didn't compensate for the steel plate they added. They need to remake the railings. I will let you know how this goes. So....2-10-19, they remade the railings... and got one of them wrong, had to send it back still in the shop, waiting......customer service has been great, but slow..read more

The quality of the hardware is fantastic and the Salter people are responsive and easy to work with. The installation instruction require a little intuitive thinking but are adequate for a practical thinking person.

Great Company! They are very professional and give you peace at mind on your purchase with a design layout to review and give you the look of what you are wanting to achieve before it ships.
15:58 14 Feb 19
Love my stairs! The reason I didn't give them 5 stars was because i had to call them back because they didn't send all the bolts I needed and on the plate it was the wrong size. But once they resent everything it was great.
00:21 29 Jan 19
The spiral stairwell kit I purchased was an amazing example of great engineering! It was flawless in quality, perfect in fit and extremely easy to install. I would recommend this company to anyone interested in purchasing a spiral staircase kit!!!!
12:29 11 Jan 19
Loved the complete process Very helpful in getting the right Details to make sure I was getting theRight product.Only issue was shopping expense that Was less expensive only after your competitorWas contacted for exact same product andFinally you matched their... expense.Have staff go to manager instead sooner in theProcess if this should happen.read more

Stairs arrived in good condition though box was beat up. Unpacking, I was immediately impressed with overall quality, fit and "heft" of the components. Was able to put platform and steps on the pole and raise in place by myself in about 2 hours. (Would recommend assistance if... not using some type of rope system to lift the assembly.) Overall very pleased with Salter Stairs!read more

Greg at Salter Spiral Stair was amazing to work with. He was able to get me a stock stair that fit all of my needs. The initial installation went well, and I cannot wait to start using the stair.

I just finished installation of the third set of spiral stairs that I have purchased from Salter Spiral Stairs. Each time I have used them has been a very positive experience. From the first contact to the follow up and any questions or concerns along the way, they provide... excellent customer service and the product quality, finishing, packaging and instructions are all first rate.I will definitely use them again, if the need arises, and I heartily recommend them for any spiral stair project you might be considering.read more

The stair went together easily and is sturdy. We love having the convenience of a spiral stair and it’s always a conversation piece!

15:19 21 Dec 18
A friend recommended Salter Spiral Stairs right from the first consolation its been very good would have give 5 stars but been a little mix up with my wood rail, iam sure it will get straightened out soon Dwight
02:45 20 Dec 18
DESIGN and PLANNING - 5 Stars. They were very attentive to requests and details. It took us from Aug 22 til Aug 31 to handle all the specifics of the design and renderings...which were awesome! PRODUCTION - 1 Star. We were told to hurry our signing of the final documents so we... could secure a spot in production that would put us on a ship date that was about 6 weeks from the time of order (ship by Oct 19). Our order didn't actually ship until Nov 21 and we received it on Dec 6. This created a big problem in our scheduling with the people that were helping us install. INSTALLATION - 4 Stars. Our staircase is solid Hickory, so it is very strong wood and the installation screws that were provided, broke several times as they were being tightened into the wood. We had to get creative to remove them, but ended up purchasing some screws from the local box store and we had no problem after that. All components and pieces were cut and sized exactly as per the plan and that made the installation work wonderfully! FINAL PRODUCT - 5 Stars!!! We love the new staircase and despite the long wait time, would order from Salter, again! Their product is worth the wait!!! I will try to remember to post a photo, soon, we are awaiting the final staining.read more

I am sorry it took me so long to post this review. The customer service we received at every interaction, from planning to completion to delivery was AWESOME. Even mistakes WE made were addressed quickly and effectively.(I misunderstood the delivery instructions & had to have... our stair RE delivered the next day. Salter took care of the problem quickly & effectively.). Don Underwood was a joy to work with & our beautiful stair looks great. Thank you Salter, you actually exceeded our expectations!read more

Everything went perfect. The representative, Andrew Fitzpatrick even contacted our GC to verify things and to coordinate delivery. I spoke to 3 different companies, and I'm glad I dealt with Salter Spiral Stairs. I wish I could post a photo.
13:41 01 Nov 18
The product is beautiful and a great looking addition to our decor.The problems with assembly were small but time consuming.I had to tap and drill holes for the Allen set screws in 2 places where the holes were not threaded or drilled through.Some of the hole had no threads... at all and those also had to be tapped.(6 total) The lack of timely response to pertinent questions was frustrating.Do not email questions .... call. Lack of communication when ordering an ancillary product was annoying and I would say that sales staff should have to follow an order from start to finish to see how frustrating it can be.( multiple requests for an arrival date went unanswered)I was seriously overcharged on the delivery fee and then they shipped it Fed-Ex anyway. (A rail was the product) The original stairway delivery was delayed and cost me money as I had to retain the installer until arrival.New Penn was not a good experience as they told me that I needed a forklift to get my product and the delivery was delayed a week until they could get a truck with a gate. Rude telephone guy at New Penn was not helpful at all. I recommend Salter as the product itself is great.read more

Shipping took a bit longer than promised. That happens. No big deal. The sales representative went into phantom mode once he had my payment. It's funny how they call you several times a day leading up to the moment they get their deposit. Decent product and good service... otherwise.read more

Great product price and delivered when and as promised
13:40 27 Sep 18
Great service. Responsive sales team, very good communication during planning, manufacturing and shipping. My only complaint is that Salter folks seem aware of all the code limitations with tread size, head clearance and staircase diameter, yet they sell them. We are having a... major issue with code and inspections on our new build. Have to remove the entire staircase. Which isn't entirely Salter's fault, however they could have advised us better as my Sales guy new it was a new build in the state of Michigan.read more
08:26 27 Sep 18
The stairs were built exactly to the specifications we planned on. They were a perfect fit. There were plenty of extra nuts, bolts etc. It was a little time consuming to install but they look great now. Price was a little more than other companies but the quality, fit and finish... was excellent. Yes I would highly recommend Salter Stairs.read more

18:27 27 Aug 18
The stair is great. Beautiful, functional, and strong. But, if your project is on a schedule, Salter might not be for you. While they make a great product, they will charge you promptly, but they take several months to deliver, with very little updates as to when you can expect... your stair. They need to work on their customer service and communications channels. Our project has been delayed close to 3 months due to Salter’s tardinessread more

The spiral staircase is of very high quality, the service was excellent and the price was very reasonable given the high quality of this staircase. It looks beautiful with our new deck.
13:52 03 Aug 18
We purchased the black powder coated aluminum spiral stairs. They are fantastic! One thing I think needs improvement is the way the handrail attaches to the balusters. The screws went in on an angle, which causes the head of the screw not to be flush. Other than that, I... would buy these again if needed and also recommend them!read more
04:30 01 Aug 18
Great company to work with! Quick reply on my intial inquiry, design process was first class. They manage the production process very well. Shipped ahead of schedule. The assembly instructions were very detailed. I actually installed by myself in about 6 hours (without paint)... with zero issues. Looks great!read more

22:54 15 Jul 18
Good quality product, helpful with question through customer service.
18:43 07 Jul 18
The planning and details of the stairs was incredible and everything pieced together perfectly on site. The only negative was the shipping of the unit, which was delayed a week by being misdirected by the shipping company. Otherwise we are extremely impressed by the product.
13:54 28 Jun 18
We found the buying process very easy. Our sales engineer called and we set up a remote computer session and he was able to engineer a staircase that fit both our budget and our taste. The fabrication was done on time, and probably early. We are somewhat local to their HQ,... so we saved some money by picking them up ourselves. When we were unpacked the boxes, everything was there. We again saved some money by getting the steel stairs and treating them with Rust-Oleum ourselves. East to do. I would have liked to have better instructions, as there wasn't really much to go on, but we figured it out over the course of a day. A YouTube channel would be ideal, as I had a hard time getting much detailed instructions . All in all, we got through and the stairs are great. I would recommend thetting the ones that are premade to set up automatically, rather than.having to measure and level each one. The comapny itself was responsive from the first chat I did online at theri website, all through the buying process, and post sale . I would highly recommend this company for a purchase.read more
11:26 24 Jun 18
John was easy to work with to help me get the look and finish that I wanted. The stairs came when they were supposed to and Salter let me know every step of the way what stage they were in. I’m very happy with the quality. They were installed and look amazing!!!

Ordered a Spiral stair and handrail from them. The product was excellent and fit perfectly. There customer service was second to none and any time I had a question they always answered the phone. Great company to do business with.
18:49 31 Oct 17
I have read the negative reviews and must provide a totally positive review. I have nothing but good experiences with Salter, and their staircase. I ordered my all steel, black staircase some years ago, about 2012. The parts arrived on time, but the central post was creased... (obviously from being rolled on a edge with heavy weight on top during shipping) and had a slight bend. I took a photo, contacted the company and we discussed replace, or use. Salter decided replacement was in order, and sent me another central post. A few weeks later, the staircase was complete.Move ahead to the summer of 2017, the staircase started getting noisy. I discovered some hardware (screws and such) had rattled out, and fallen away. I could not located the missing hardware. I contacted the company, and asked them to sell me a small collection of hardware. Instead, I received, without charge, a box filled with prepacked hardware sets.In my case, I communicated with Sal, who has always made every right. My experience: Great product, great customer service.read more

I can give a 4 for now as we haven't done the install yet due to tough permit reviewer but I was very impressed with Salter customer service who sent shop drawings right out to assist in this process. I am pretty sure I can come back to give a 5 noting how well packed and good... condition everything arrived. Can't wait to get completion on this!read more

How cool, I love my spiral stairs!. Salter Spiral Stair supported this project from beginning to end. They walked me through the design process with insight and experienced advice. This should have gone in like butter but the contractor didn't look at the directions and first... put the stair in backwards! The people at Salter were very understanding and extremely helpful working with me to make it right. I've had very many compliments on my new stairs! They are beautiful, safe and (if you follow the directions) easy peasy.read more
14:34 26 Apr 17
The company was very helpful during design, allowing me to customize elements of the stair including adding a wooden handrail to match the wood species of the stair treads. The representative assisted my contractor in a conference call to answer their installation questions. ... The stair was shipped as a kit of parts that was easy to install. Suggestions for improvements include: better cleaning of the metal before powder coating would eliminate imperfections in the finish that we solved with touch-up paint, delivery service did not allow us to inspect the stair before accepting delivery.read more

Easy to install, good quality. We needed a spiral stair for a home in the caribbean and wanted a kit. Send the measurements for the custom spiral to Salter. This spiral went from one upper deck to a higher deck, so did not start on the ground. The manufactured it the way we... wanted, shipped to caribbean and then we assembled. Had one small minor error that was easily fixed. Two handy people can assemble. Hardest part is expanding the hand rail without any kinks, but we managed to do it. Would buy from them again.read more

I created a photo studio in a commercial space that had a loft storage area that I wanted to use for both a secondary shooting space and a lounge. When I took over the space, the only way up to the loft was a vertical ladder of planks of playwood screwed to the wall. In planning... out the space, it became apparent that a spiral staircase was the most efficient use of space.Everyone I spoke with at Salter was helpful and worked with me on my budget and timing needs to get me exactly what I wanted. The staircase pieces arrived on time, and though the box had been a bit crushed in the shipping, the pieces inside weren't damaged, and there was no need for any replacements.The pieces were solidly built and quite heavy. Construction took much longer than anticipated (story of everyone's life in remodeling, right?), and the stairs were one of the last things to go in. So as construction was happening, I had to move all the pieces several times around the place to get them out of the way. Good workout.My only negative, really, is that the instructions could have been so much better. We did eventually figure things out, but it had not been apparent from the start that each center baluster (on my staircase, there were two center balusters for each tread) was going to have to be cut to length. On my stair, that meant cutting 16 steel bars to length. Though I had been told that a couple of reasonably competent people could do it in a day, I called in my contractors who had power saws to help out. And it was an enormous help...until one baluster was cut way too short.And then Salter came to the rescue. For what I thought was going to be a $100 mistake on our part, Salter generously sent us a replacement baluster free of charge. That was above and beyond and cemented Salter in my mind as a company I would absolutely recommend.Certain other parts of the assembly are challenging, to be sure -- uncoiling the aluminum handrail, especially in a cramped space (the reason we got a spiral in the first place) was nerve-racking to do the first time -- the thing sure doesn't seem like it will uncoil smoothly, but for the most part it did.Best of all, the staircase looks AMAZING. Everyone who sees it admires it, and it's now one of the shooting locations in the studio.I have heard that better instructions were being drafted after we received our staircase, so that's good. But overall it was a great experience, and the results are stunning.read more

Great support, great product. This was my first ever spiral staircase, and Salter's staff (thank you, Melissa) is trained and prepared to lead you through the process. They take your photos and dimensions, then present a graphic on your screen, allowing you to choose and see... just where the top landing is positioned and where the bottom tread is oriented within a detailed drawing of your own room. High quality steel, precise fabrication and clean finishes set them apart. My package came on time, with no missing pieces, and fit together precisely. My buddy was helping me, and by the end of the day he was ready to buy a Salter staircase for his deck at home.read more
