It’s pretty standard for homes to have carpet installed on the stairs.
Hardwood treads and risers are a much more durable option. For many people, installing hardwoods can make their staircase a beautiful and dramatic focal point.
Our process for refinishing stairs is quite extensive and is designed to give you the best results. It is in accordance with the highest industry standards as DG Wood Floors has made a commitment not to skip any steps, regardless of the situation.
First, we remove the existing stair cover (if any) as well as the existing treads and risers. We do this because the stairs must be leveled, and there just isn’t a good way to do that without getting down to the actual stair stringers.
Secondly, we level the rise and run of the stairs by trimming or building up each stringer. It is very important that the stairs be level both vertically and horizontally.
Next, we install the treads.
Finally, the stairs are completed with the color and finish of your choice. Depending on the style, we may also trim the stairs with cove molding to give them a beautiful finished touch.
If you are concerned about traction on your hardwood stairs, we can install an anti-slip finish for extra safety.
