Timber Choices

A Timber To Suit Any Staircase

Please find below a sample of our timber options. Our complete range of staircase components and handrails are all available in the following timbers.

Pine Timber

Pine

Pine is the least expensive timber in the range. Pine is often used when painting your staircase. Pine staircase components will have knots, which will need to be treated before you begin painting.

Hemlock Timber

Hemlock

We describe Hemlock as, basically, pine without the knots. A little stronger than Pine, Hemlock is a creamy grey coloured timber which is ideal for painting, varnishing or polishing.

Mahogany Timber

Mahogany (Sapele)

Mahogany (Sapele) is a very strong and durable Hardwood, red/brown in colour, Mahogany (Sapele) is often used when a darker finish is required. Being very close grained, it is easy to obtain a very smooth finish when using Mahogany (Sapele).

Ash Timber

Ash

Ash is also very strong and durable timber. Ash is often used when a lighter finish is required. Ash is very light and has a very pronounced grain throughout. Ash is often seen as a slightly cheaper substitute to oak and often used in bars and restaurants.

Oak Timber

Oak

Oak (American white oak), is many people's favourite timber. A beautiful classic hardwood timber, Oak is also strong and durable. We have expanded our range to include Solid Engineered Oak Treads and Risers along with our stunning Engineered Oak Flooring.
