Oak stair cladding in Hertfordshire

Oak stair cladding in Watford, Hertfordshire.

Recently Fine Oak Flooring have finished this oak stair cladding project in Watford, Hertfordshire.

Previously we supplied and installed engineered oak flooring from Chateau oak collection. Chateau oak flooring collection is prefinished oak flooring. Clients liked their new oak floor so much that they decided to install the same flooring on the Landing and clad the stairs with the same flooring.

For this project Fine Oak Flooring Ltd supplied Chateau oak Smoked finish flooring and oak stair nosing with bullnose end to match.

The stairs were tired and battered over the years of use and a few of the treads creaked.

Before we start the stair cladding we cut the original lip of the steps and fixed all the creaking with glue and few screws. Once we have done the preparation we began with stair cladding.

Oak stair cladding is gaining on popularity for past few years. The whole installation is relatively painless. Old staircase transformation takes only one or two days depending on the design of the stairs. Stairs can be used at all times, even through the installation process. This is a very convenient and cost effective method of updating your old tired stairs. It will enhance the Entrance Hall by creating a uniform look and a better visual flow between the Entrance Hall and the Landing.

By cladding the stairs with solid oak is also more economic than carpeting it over a long term.
