At the moment the brackets for the banister is screwed to a piece of wood and it looks stupid, so as we are having our landing plastered i was going to remove the banister and piece of board so they can plaster where the board was and then i could refit the banister. So my question is if i use the old banister but use new brackets how do i fix it to the wall from scratch.

Mark the screw positions for the brackets and use masonry plugs and screws. For a handrail I would use 2" screws.

I think i should have said handrail and not the banister. So how do i know what angle the handrail got to be.

Same angle as the stairs. Measure the height of the handrail above the steps at the moment then after the plastering is done, re fix to the wall at the same height. Simples icon_wink.gif icon_wink.gif icon_wink.gif
