There are many different components that go into building a staircase including handrails, risers, stringers, and treads. At Acadia Stairs, we combine all these different elements to create unique, customized interior and exterior staircases for residential, industrial and commercial spaces.

When planning your staircase, the treads you choose can easily make or break the design. Treads are typically the largest “surface” on a staircase and as a result, the style and material you use will heavily reflect the overall look of the staircase itself.

At Acadia Stairs, we work with a wide variety of materials in order to ensure that the style of your tread fits perfectly with the overall design of your custom staircase.

Wood Treads

More and more people are starting to incorporate wood flooring into their homes and offices, and of course, need a staircase to match. Wooden treads can blend seamlessly into your current design, creating a continuous, all-natural look that connects each level of the space. Wood treads are most often used in interior applications, but can be used for an exterior staircase that’s more traditional in style.

Steel & Stainless Steel Treads
