NOTCHED STRINGER STAIR
The most widely used stair in the Northwest, the notched staircase utilizes three stringers that are cut out to accept treads and risers. Normally covered with carpet these stairs can also be built to accept other finish materials.
ROUTED STRINGER STAIR
The routed stringer differs from the previous stair by utilizing the visible skirt board as its structural support stringers. This stair only requires two stringers that are routed to take treads and risers, and these are wedged into place. The visible stringers are then painted or stained while the steps can be carpet grade or finished material.
Any staircase can be made more inviting with a flared, splayed or bullnosed leading step. We can provide any straight or curved design you can come up with.
Our staircases can tolerate the rigors of commercial applications and are an economical alternative to steel construction. Engineered wood such as LVL or LSL (shown below respectively) can be used in place of the Douglas Fir stringers we use standard.
