Stairsteps specialize in converting an ageing staircase and stair railings, usually covered with carpet, into a hardwood masterpiece. As long as your intentions do not involve changing the actual direction of the staircase, removing an existing staircase and installing a brand new one is simply not necessary. Even if you have some squeaks, these can be rectified from the topside 99% of the time.
StairSteps manufactures any shape of step and installs any type of stair railing, that your heart desires. Many times we need to create a template of the step, manufacture it, stain and varnish it. Once we have the finished step, it is then ready to be installed accurately on top of your old steps. Of course your existing steps need to be prepared in order to accept the new treads, but that is all part of what we do. We are a turnkey solution. From beginning to end.
Your new wood stairs will be stained and varnished offsite in a controlled environment prior to installation. This way you and your family will have 24/7 access to your staircase. Another very important aspect of of our staining service, is that we take the headache out of stain matching. All of our matching is done in-house. This includes difficult multi-tone colouring. This is a very important topic because the alternative would be for you to take a colour sample to a paint store or the like. The problem with this is, a company needs to turn a profit, and if a match takes longer than an hour, then the cost of the stain along with the labour costs involved outweigh the compensation. Many times an accurate match can be achieved in a short period of time. But many times it takes longer, StairSteps takes as as much time as needed in order to create the colour that you desire. This is not just a $40 stain match to us. This is crucial part of the end product that we will stamp our name on. So it has to be right.
