Do a contractor search above D M Also if the attic stairs are those with the arms the hold the springs as the stairs open and close. And if the part in which those arms appears to be coming loose. I would suggest replacement of the stair case as that type of repair can not be performed. New stars are not very expensive and depending upon how often you access the attic, some of the better quality ones are like walking up a standard stair case instead of climbing a ladder.
Thanks for the answers, but I'm still hoping for more ideas.
DM do a contractor search at the top of the site page. A qualified handyman should be able to assist you with your needs.
