Custom Hardwood Stairs

Sudbury Local and Online Retailer of Wood Stair Treads:

These stairway treads are custom designed to fit your needs.. in the shape you require, the length you need and the type of wood you desire. They are designed to be glued down on top of a construction set of steps.

The picture on the left shows the plywood structure and the picture on the right shows the same set of stairs after the solid woods treads have been put in place. This two stage installation has some real financial and installation benefits so keep reading.

New Home Construction:

These treads are used to recover a set of construction stairs, with hardwood planks and end with a spectacular solid oak stairway. The focal point of your new home.

This is a two step approach. You build a working set of construction steps in the location and design that you’d like to end with. All of your trades people can use this to get from floor to floor in the construction phase without worrying about damaging any finished surfaces.

Then when all the dirty stuff has been done and painting has been completed you install on top of these construction stairs, a fine hardwood plank. Steps of this design are glued over top of the existing rough stair structure to create a solid hardwood finish, saving you thousands of dollars when compared to other construction methods. (see picture above)

This is a MUCH simpler construction method especially for any and all DIY ‘ers that don’t make stairs as part of their daily routine. The structural part can be assembled with traditional screw and glue techniques as NONE of this will show when you’re done .. that REALLY takes the pressure off!


Many of my clients have older homes that have stairs covered in vinyl tile or carpet. They are starting to look tired and outdated.

These recover stair treads can be used in the same way, to rejuvenate or reface these old indoor stair treads with hardwood planks in a wood to match your existing decorating without destroying the entire house and breaking the bank!

It is a method that the average woodworker can accomplish, with great success and limited experience. We walk you through the process and share all the tricks.

These wood stair treads can be used on their own or in a combination of hardwood stairs and carpet runner.

As a wood stair treads online retailer sometimes our customers are thousands of miles away so we just encourage you to make paper patterns for any unusually stair treads and send them through the mail. That way mistakes are avoided and we can clearly understand what you need. It takes a few more emails and time for snail mail to do its thing but it works and we’ve been doing it that way for over 6 years with great success

Some “Wood” Choices:

Choice is particular important today as we see a lot of exotic hardwood flooring on the market in woods like Brazilian Cherry, Santos Mahogany, and many others where I can’t even pronounce the name, let alone know all about them.

We also think it is important to get the right colour mix in our traditional North American wood species. So we try and create a stair tread consistent with the flooring that you are trying to match… colour variable with all the shades of wood naturally found in the species of choice, or colour consistent where that is the more appropriate appearance, in which case we hand select the wood before glue-up.
