For a cohesive look, consider adding hardwood stairs to your space
What’s better than matching your stairs to your floors? Hardwood stairs can be sleek and modern or worn and rustic. They are suitable for many aesthetics and spruce up any space.
Functionality and aesthetic appeal are valuable parts of any space. By choosing these stairs, you get the best of both worlds. As an area with lots of foot traffic, you want your stairs to last. At Champion Floor Company in St Louis, we offer many variations of durable hardwood stairs.
Hardwood stairs make ascending much more exciting. From pine to oak, they come from several types of wood. Hardwood can be installed on any surface, including classic and spiral staircases.

The experts at Champion Floor Company in St. Louis make installing hardwood stairs quick and easy. Whether replacing carpet or starting the process from scratch, our contractors are here to help. We’ll break the process step-by-step. You won’t have to worry when a professional is installing your hardwood stairs.
Your contractor starts with measuring and trimming. The part you step on (tread), the back part of the step (riser), and the length and width of the stairs are measured and trimmed to size.
First, frame parts called stringers are added to each side and the middle of each step. Then the risers are hammered with two nails into each one. Finally, a pin set thumps the nails deep into the hardwood.
Next, the treads are laid flat and perpendicular to the riser. Your contractor will apply wood adhesive under and on the sides of the risers and clean off any excess glue.
Your contractor will add a balustrade, which are railings braced by wood or steel supports. They keep you safe and add aesthetic value.
Lastly, your contractor will sand and your hardwood stairs. The process has a specific order. Your contractor will work on the balustrades, then the treads, risers and stringers. Then the stairs are cleaned, stained and finished.
