Balusters and Newel Posts

Your newel post and balusters are a focal point for your staircase. Like handrails it is important to create not only aesthetic balusters and handrails, but ones that are sturdy and safe. Balusters and Newel Posts are made using popular woods such as Oak, Poplar, and Maple but can also be made of metal. We take great care in installing your balusters and newel posts at the correct height and spacing to ensure they are safe, aesthetic, and meet local building codes.

Stair Treads

Solid wood stair treads and steps increase the beauty, sturdiness, and longevity of a staircase. We use hard wood steps and treads to replace carpeted or pine stairs, improving the look and feel of your staircase.


A good handrail complements your stairs so it is important you chose the right one. Handrails not only come in a variety of metals, and woods such as oak, maple, and poplar but also come in a dizzying array of styles and shapes. Wether you are looking for something modern or more traditional we can help you chose the right handrail for your job.
