Refinishing involves sanding down the existing wood surface of the staircase, repairing any damage, and applying new finishes like stains or paints. This can help restore the staircase’s appearance and protect the wood from wear and tear.

Recapping starts with the removal of any old or outdated carpet covering the existing staircase treads with new materials. Choose from wood or vinyl treads, to give your stairs a fresh and updated look. This can also involve adding new risers to match the new treads.

Balusters are the vertical posts that provide support to the handrail. During a renovation, you might choose to replace old or damaged balusters with new ones made from wood, wrought iron, or other materials, giving your staircase an updated aesthetic.

As part of the refinishing, you have the option to upgrade your railing system. You can choose from a variety of styles and materials to match your desired look and ensure safety from modern glass railings, solid iron spindles, or classic wood spindles.

Transform your stairs by changing the stain. This involves sanding down the old stain, applying the new stain of your choice, and varnish. Additionally, if you have an unfinished staircase, we can match the new stain to your existing floors.
