Types of Stairs

Types of Stairs

Almost all custom floor coverings can be used on stairs. Most stairs are covered in carpet or are hardwood. There are many options for using runners and other unique products to create something special. Marmoleum is often used on a secondary set of stairs that accesses the basement or utility area.

The right choice of covering for your stairs will go a long way in creating the atmosphere you desire in your home. We have the experience in all types of installations to cater to your tastes.



Durability is especially important on stairs because of the high traffic they handle. Hardwood stairs will last forever as they can be refinished many times over their lifespan. Carpet is of particular concern and the right choice is crucial; often it is a good idea to buy extra carpet knowing that the stairs will need to be replaced before other areas. We have unique covering that can help protect stair treads and make them less slippery. Some people think wood is slippery and some people think carpet is slippery so we know everyone's individual experience plays a part in making these decision.



Generally hardwood or bamboo stairs cost $150 or more per step (that includes tread and riser) labor and materials. But they can cost more based on species of wood and if the stairs have open ends. Marmoleum steps are around $80 per step. Carpet will vary greatly depending on the carpet selection but generally carpet is much cheaper.


Care for Stairs

Care of stairs is the same as for other floor coverings. Carpet on stairs should be cleaned regularly, at least if not more than once a year.
