Hardwood stairs create a luxurious and stylish feel to your staircase. Whether you have a straight, spiral, curved or winding staircase, hardwood gives it that extra special look and adds to the overall effect of your home decor. It’s probably the reason hardwood never goes out of style.
If you are considering putting in hardwood stairs but you don’t have hardwood flooring, this could still be a great way to accentuate the staircase. On the other hand, if you already have hardwood flooring, your staircase too could blend in well with your room’s decor.
There are two main parts in stairs – treads and risers - that have to be fitted perfectly to make your staircase safe for use and looking good. The ‘tread’ is the place where you step and the ‘riser’ is the section facing your feet while climbing. Therefore, installing hardwood stairs takes a lot more skill and technique than floor installation. Unskilled work could reflect in the end product with uneven finishes and rough edges.

In condominiums or commercial properties where sub-floor consists of concrete, plywood is applied on top of the slab in order to allow for nailing of the floor. All glued down floors can be directly applied on top of the concrete. See diagrams below outlining different floor types, installation techniques as well as examples of transition and finishing trims commonly used.
