If you are planning on furnishing your home with new hardwood floor, or have already done so, consider hardwood stair replacement. One of the most common endeavors in staircase remodeling is the installation of treads – particularly those manufactured out of wood that looks great with the rest of the decor. FloorBank provides quality wood stair treads, posts, hand railing, and spindle installation as we match the current color and décor stain.
The Right Stain
If you haven’t already done so, choose a stain that matches the wood flooring and overall design of your home.
Dark stains tend to make rooms appear smaller, while lighter stains make space seem larger. Light stains also look more informal and fade less over time. An important factor to consider is the light source. Every source of light gives off a different color. Fluorescent bulbs tend to be “whiter” and “cooler” than incandescent light bulbs. If the stairway is near a window, its color may also be affected by exterior light sources.
If you are unsure of what shade to choose, connect with one of our customer service representatives from FloorBank and they will gladly guide you to find the right stain.
Pre - Finished OR Finished
Is it better to have the wood finished at the factory before it’s even installed? The answer to this question generally is yes. Pre-finished is much easier to install and you can see the product to know exactly what you’re getting. It also allows for a completely custom solution for your stairs. The only downfall is that it is a longer, more complicated process. However, pre-finished wood comes in one piece, which minimizes the amount of dirt and liquid that enters the treat, resulting in fewer problems in the long run.
