Stair Components & Systems

Build new or update.

residential and commercial staircases
















There are many pieces in a stair system to consider, and many beautiful options in stair components. Treads, risers, newels, balusters, handrails and their connecting pieces fit together to create staircases that are often a focal feature at the entrance of a home or business. It is a place to show style and add value to a property.

Stair systems can be built from wood in virtually any species. Adding materials like iron, stainless steel or cables offers even more design possibilities.

Stair Makeover

Having an existing staircase doesn"t mean you"re stuck with its current style. There are several things you can do to repair and restyle stairs for a more contemporary look.

  • Replace Balusters – Replace wood balusters with iron or stainless steel balusters. 
  • Replace Newels & Handrails – Replace older style newel posts and handrails with a more modern style.
  • Add False Tread Caps – If your stairs are fully carpeted, you can add false tread caps to the end of the treads for a carpet runner effect down the stairs.
  • Refinish Handrails, Balusters and Treads – Stain wood components a new color – or contrasting colors for the handrail and balusters – and retain the beauty of the wood grain.
  • Remove Carpet – Carpeted stairs are generally built with plywood or particle board underneath. Remove the carpet and add wood or tile treads. Have some fun with the risers and add contrasting wood, tile or paint.
