Stair Cladding - Classic look: for something a little more traditional, stairs cladded in classic fashion, that are wall mounted, are just the perfect choice. We call them classic because a special trim of wood named nosing is used to join the riser and the tread. This is the classic technique for stairs cladding. We appreciate this rounded style of the balustrades and banister and for them the perfect complementary design solution are the steps classical cladded. Keeping to a more traditional approach of construction and design, this is a very pleasant way to commence your ascent to the upper floor.
Have a look at these wonderful classic stairs we cladded. They brought an elegant atmosphere.

A brief description of the work involved: we have developed special techniques combined with time-honored ones to bring for you and exceptional modern stair cladding service. Bellow we provide a description of a comprehensive fitting service.

Staircase structure types and checking: as the name suggest the new wood will be cladded over the existing steps which can be mainly pine, mdf, concrete or metal. Always a proper assessment is done before starting the the wok after removing the existing covering (if it is the case).

Existing covering removal: cladding the stairs can be bone only by firmly attaching the new wood over the structural steps. For this reason we have to remove any existing covering. Most encountered are carpet and old glued wood. We will choose the best suitable removal method to minimize the damages.
 
Steps checking and preparation: a very important stage especially for wooden structure staircases. Now is the best moment to deal with any hidden problems like unstable steps, cracked treads or squeaks. Also the elements which will make the final result less appealing will be removed such as nosing or beading.
Concrete stairs need to be checked for cracked areas. If they are epoxy mortar will be used to repair them.

Fitting the hardwood over the steps: now everything is ready to start cladding the stairs. It is good to know that it is a laborious process which requires time and patience. Each step is individually cladded according to its specific measurements. Yes, each step is different from the other ones in terms of 1-2 mm. When cladding stairs this is the difference between craftsmanship and handywork.
At a first glance it might look a straightforward job to fit wooden floor on stairs yet due to so many visible edges, vertical and horizontal angles, inclinations, parallelisms we have to measure and calculate precisely each cut.
Cladded stairs have to be beautiful as well as strong. The best looking ones are cladded with wooden boards which cover the entire tread and riser but many times the width of the board is narrower than the step. For this, with our high end equipment we have developed a special technique to seamlessly join two boards. The end result is so spectacular that no one will know that actually 2 boards were used to create a wide one. The main advantage for this approach: it allows to successfully use the same floor boards for classic stair cladding as well.

As a few notes Stairs Cladding, in general: our state of the art cutting equipment will be connected to dust extractors. Despite all these a measure of chips and sawdust will result as they are blown away by the circular saw blades especially.
Also it is noisy. This is due once again to the circular saw blades when cutting, and not only.
It is best to be cautious, so according to the site conditions, wood type and source, the acclimatisation may be required which means to leave the wood inside the fitting area for about 2 days (engineered) or 7 days (solid). We recommend trustworthy suppliers which will deliver your wood with the moisture content according to agreed standards.
We hope that now you have a more in-depth information about how to opt for Stair Cladding - classic look.

It was an absolute pleasure working with Alin and his team. The quality of work and the professionalism with which it was carried out was second to none. The quote received was not the cheapest however we decided to go with Fin Wood as a result of the first meeting we had with Alin. At no point during the conversation did he mention the cost of the project instead he was purely focused on what we needed and how he can help us achieve it. We were amazed at how neat and tidy everything was while the work was carried out. We are extremely happy with the end result.

Alin and his team were excellent. They turned up on time, cleaned up afterwards, kept me aware of progress throughout the project and laid the best looking floor I've ever had! All in all, I am incredibly pleased with their work and would highly recommend them to anyone wanting a quality wood floor. They are real craftsmen and bring passion to their work.

Alin is the type of tradesman that makes this website worthwhile. He gave us confidence from his initial visit and he followed that up with excellent work. Before he started his estimate was detailed and clear, and he was always ready to help with queries, no matter how simple. He arrived on time, worked hard, tidied up every night, finished on time, was friendly and gave plenty of good advice for the future. Unprompted, he also made a superb side table from wood that was leftover. I have no hesitation in recommending Fin Wood.

From the first meeting with Alin through to the complete job, I was very impressed with Fin Wood. Alin spent time talking me through different options that would work best for my situation (I live on the first floor and have a very sensitive neighbour downstairs), provided professional and timely quote, was flexible on timing and the final job and even clean up was great. I can't recommend them highly enough and I absolutely love my floors!

Alin "rescued" our stairs after a botched job by someone (recommended by the shop that sold us the wood) that had left us stressed and on tenterhooks. Alin was more expensive than others we received quotes from, but we decided it was worth it, in order to have something beautiful that will stand the test of time. Alin is a very professional, courteous and affable person, and we would certainly recommend him to our friends and family.

Alin did a great job with the flooring, including placing solid wood on the stairs, which many fitter would not do. He was quick, clean and professional all the way through: he gave me a quote and a timescale and stuck to them. The service was worth the expense.

Although at the end the job was a little rushed due to another job starting, apart from this a flawless job which I was extremely happy with. Alin was very reliable. I left my keys with him for the week which was fine. He was very trust worthy and generally a very pleasant person to be around. I can highly recommend him as he has a true passion for his work!

Alin fitted our solid wood floor last week. His work was to a very high standard and we are so pleased with the finish. There were some tricky parts for him to do such as cutting around pipes and stairs, but he did a fantastic job.
