Most newer homes are fitted with softwood or MDF stairs, and the cost and mess involved in replacing them can be offputting.
Heritage oak stair cladding offers you a simple cost effective solution. By retaining your existing stairs, and bonding new oak treads and risers over the top, converting your staircase to solid oak becomes an easy weekend DIY job and better yet the cost is usually a fraction that of a new oak staircase.
This kit is designed for a straight staircase with 13 risers, a very common staircase, often seen in Victorian era homes. Some of these stairs may have 14 risers, in which case this kit, with an additional straight tread pack is the way to go.
To produce a great cost effective option, we use fingerjointed oak, produced in house, to make the tread sections. We can then pass on the costs to you as a great discount. Have a look at the images of the raw treads to see what they look like (note the set shots do not always show jointed oak)
The kit contains 13 straight tread packst. The kit will fit any stairs with treads up to 1000mm wide, 285mm deep individual treads (go) and up to 200mm individual height (rise)
13 x Straight Tread Packs
Stair cladding is made using a specially selected prime grade of French oak. Most pieces will be clear, with the occasional small knot which helps to emphasise the solid oak nature of the product
Special offer kits use fingerjointed oak which not only helps with stabilty but keeps costs low. We pass that saving onto you as a large discount over the solid oak treads.
The riser board is made from a A grade oak veneer bonded to an MDF 6mm base
Standard and Custom Sizes
Stair cladding is designed to fit stairs with straight treads up to 1000mm wide when measured between the strings.
Tread depths (know as the "go" of the tread) of up to 285mm can be accommodated
Step heights (know as the "rise" of the step) of up to 200mm can be accommodated
All of these dimensions are well above what is normal for UK stairs. A typical UK staircase will have a width of around 840mm between treads, a rise of around 180mm and a going of around 220mm.
Oak stair cladding is supplied unfinished to allow you to match into your existing decor. We can supply finishes from our flooring finishing range if desired.
Stair cladding kits are normally delivered on a pallet. The pallet carrier specifies the delivery as "kerbside" meaning they will unload from the truck only. You will need to be on hand to help move the goods indoors. Individual treads are easy to carry once the pallet is unpacked.
