Stair Components & Systems

Stairs to Style

Build new or update.

There are many pieces in a stair system to consider, and many beautiful options in stair parts, and our experienced staff can help guide you through the process.

Treads, risers, newels, balusters, handrails and their connecting pieces fit together to create stairs that are often the focal feature at the entrance of a home. It is a place to show your style and add value to your home.

Starting from Scratch

You have nearly unlimited design options when building a new staircase. Bring in photos and/or basic measurements of your stair space to our Riverside Ave. location, and investigate the choices available for stair components.

Using in-stock or custom-made components, a stair system can be made from virtually any species of wood. You can also add other materials to the mix like iron or stainless steel balusters, or cable and bar railings and balusters. Treads may be made nearly any depth, and can be solid wood or carpet-covered. We can help you and your contractor sift through the options and provide assistance to make your stair project come to life.

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.
