Staircase Materials

Choosing the right timber can make all the difference, that is why we offer a variety of different materials to suit both your budget & your style. Below are just a few samples of the materials we can offer in their natural colours.


MDF is a great material for Treads and Risers if you are wanting to carpet your stairs in the most cost effective way.



Redwood is an ideal entry level timber. It is a softwood which commonly shows knots. It is the most cost effective timber and is almost always painted.


Hemlock is a high quality softwood that has much fewer imperfections. This makes it ideal for staining or painting with a superior finish.



Sapele is a dark hardwood which is offered as an alternative to Brazillian mahogany

(which is no longer available).


American White Oak

American White Oak is a hardwood with very few imperfections. It has an exceptional finish and is commonly combined with a glass balustrade for the ultimate contemporary look.


American Black Walnut

Walnut is a high-end dark hardwood. It is typically dark brown and often contains a light coloured sap.
