All stair treads are made to order, each created meticulously by experienced woodworkers who take great pride in their work.
Why Hardwood Stair Treads?
Durable and Strong The use and wear on a set of steps inside a bustling home filled with chatter, laughter, and comings and goings can be, well, abundant. Upgrading your home's staircase with hardwood treads is a true investment: you will have something that will last, something that will hold up over years and years of constant use, something that will only continue to deepen in charm and beauty.
Warm and Inviting Classic is the new modern: home upgrade trends show a firm movement towards high-quality features that are built to last, made from natural materials, and designed to give a home a welcoming warmth along with a timeless feel. Premium hardwood stair treads fulfill this trend perfectly.
Whether you choose a pale, blond wood like Beech to lighten a room; a warm, cozy reddish wood like American or Brazilian Cherry; or the deep, rich, traditional of Mahogany wood, natural hardwoods add a glow to any home.
