Whether you want to improve the style of your entryway and staircase, want stairs that are easier to clean or want a durable, longer lasting solution than carpet – converting a staircase to wood is worth the investment.
Carpet is a popular choice for covering the stairs; however, it tends to trap dirt and debris and can look worn. Wooden treads can freshen up the decor of your living space and they are easier to clean and maintain.
Old carpet needs to be removed and it is common to find tack strips along both sides that can be pulled up. Glued carpet may leave residue that can be sanded off to allow a smooth surface.
The benefit of working with Built By You is we can create custom treads and risers in the material and stain or paint color of your choice. We can ensure there are no visible nail holes and the finish will be solid and strong to endure the additional wear on stairs.
All of the details are covered such as covering and sanding the staple holes, painting the trim close to the edges and installing new balusters and newel posts to update the design of the stairs.
The staircase is a focal point in the interior of your home and we guarantee a professional result that incorporates your style and updates to add value to your home.
The treads and risers of the stairs can be hardwood, tile, painted or even a carpeted runner. Replacing the balusters, newels and handrails to add iron, new stain or paint or unique shapes provide quality and timeless designs.
