Wooden Overlay Stairs for Staircase Renovation

Transforming your staircase with wooden clad steps is a popular way to change its appearance without the need for a complete replacement.

Our oak-clad steps are carefully fitted onto your existing treads. The advantage of oak cladding is its versatility in terms of colour and finish.

We can customise the cladding in our workshop to match the rest of your interior.

Imagine your staircase harmoniously blending in with your wooden flooring, sharing the same stunning finish and colour.

Additionally, our oak steps are not only durable but also easy to maintain.

When installing the cladding, we ensure thorough cleaning and sanding of the original staircase. A primer is then applied to enhance the adhesion of the adhesive.

The wooden cladding is meticulously crafted to perfect size and securely attached to the existing steps.

The result? A rejuvenated staircase with a warm and natural charm.

Opting for an oak-clad staircase renovation is a relatively simple and affordable way to add value to your home.

Benefits of Oak Steps Compared to Other Materials

Elegant oak treads are a popular choice for many reasons. Firstly, oak wood is known for its durability and long lifespan. Unlike other materials, oak treads can withstand years of wear and tear without showing signs of damage. Additionally, oak treads are slip-resistant, making them safer to walk on, particularly for children and the elderly. Oak is also moisture-resistant, preventing warping or rotting, making it ideal for use in high humidity spaces such as basements or bathrooms. Experience the beauty and functionality of oak treads.

The Many Possibilities of Oak Stairs

One of the great things about oak stairs is the multitude of possibilities they offer. Oak is a hardwood that can be stained or painted to complement any interior style. Whether your home is modern, traditional, or somewhere in between, oak stairs can be customized to suit your taste. Oak stairs can also be combined with other materials such as metal or glass to create a unique and stunning look. If you’re looking for a classic, timeless appearance, natural oak stairs can be left untreated or finished with a clear varnish to bring out the natural beauty of the wood grain. However, if you prefer a more contemporary look, oak stairs can be painted or stained in a wide range of colours to match your decor. And if you’re feeling adventurous, you can even opt for a two-tone look by staining the steps in one colour and the risers in another.

Installation of Oak Stair Treads

At Fairwood in the workshop

Once you have chosen the colour and finish for the steps together with us, we can start finishing the steps. Fairwood does this in its workshop. The steps are stained and oiled or sprayed with varnish or paint. Then they are dried.

Installation at your home

You can do this installation yourself or have a known contractor do it.

You can also choose to have a Fairwood parquet installer install the steps for you.

First, the old steps are stripped of carpet and adhesive residues. It may be necessary to sand the old steps in certain areas.

Then, the stair spindles and the remaining structure of the staircase are inspected for any damages and repaired or replaced as needed.

The oak veneer steps need to be custom-made. The required size is measured tree by tree on the existing staircase.

There are panels in 2 sizes; 100cm long for straight steps and 140cm long for steps with a twist.

Two steps are cut from one panel. The cut veneer steps are then attached to the existing stair structure using glue and screws.

The edges are then neatly finished to ensure a seamless finish.

Colour and Finish of Stair Treads

Choose your own colour and finish for your staircase

At Fairwood, we collaborate closely with you to achieve the perfect color for your staircase by skillfully blending pigments.

We value your autonomy in selecting the color that aligns with your personal style and preferences.

After the blending process, we provide you with sample boards to conveniently evaluate in the comfort of your own home, ensuring optimal lighting conditions for accurate assessment.

This empowers you to make an informed decision and feel confident about your color choice for your staircase.
