The need for stair refinishing

Stairs are built to provide access to the upper floors of a building. This makes them a high-traffic part of the house eventually causing serious wear and tear. This prompts the need for repairs and refinishing. Stairways often catch the attention of anyone who visits your home and a shabby-looking stairway with torn or foot faded spots is not the most appealing feature in a well-kept home.

While stair refinishes in Milton have more to do with restoration than just fix the appearance of the stairs, this comes as an added benefit. If your stairs have fallen in disarray, the need for a professional refinish is eminent. This is why we first examine the condition of the stairs. In one of our more recent stair refinishing jobs, a homeowner in Mississauga said; “we would like to walk down the stairs instead of gliding down them, without even trying”.

Their stairs were covered in carpet that had seen better days and there were children in the house who had done their job of adding to the condition of these stairs and the spills on them. Once we had completed the initial examination, we began with discussing the possibilities of redoing the carpet, the client, however, decided to go for solid oak as the refinishing material of choice. It was challenging to redo the entire staircase as it needs faux stringers and a completely new handrail. The homeowner opted for Clamped glass railing again held by oak finish at the shoes and the upper layer.

Is stair refinishing limited to old homes?

In a sense; yes. Most stairs that need refinishing are in older homes across Kitchener, Milton, and Mississauga. This means that even if you are planning to move into a new home (one of the older homes on the market), you may need to look into stair refinishing.

For most old homes the bones of the stairs are relatively sturdy and with our experts giving you the go-ahead all you may need is a little sanding, the addition of new hand and base rails, or even new treads may be all your stairs need to look a part of the new décor.

Often homeowners (new) tend to add hardwood floors to the mix and this often prompts the need for a complete stair to refinish to match the two grains. However, our experts can help you retain the character of the house by refinishing the stairs accordingly.

One of our valued customers who recently moved back into her family home chose to keep the old pine stairs even though she opted for solid oak floors. The challenge was to remove the stain the pinewood had retained over the years. they had turned almost orange. When refinishing these stairs in Mississauga we began by refinishing the treads and then using stained trim, stair risers, balusters, and newel posts.

This completely transformed the stairs and even though they did not perfectly align with the wood grain of the floors, it certainly complemented the surroundings well.
