We source the highest quality material. Stringers, treads, and risers are handcrafted to specification. Custom balusters and newel posts are crafted and test fit. For curved stairways, we construct a custom apparatus that allows us to create custom laminated stringers (the "walls" of your stairway) and rails. The entire stairway is test-assembled in our facility and then disassembled into components that are road-friendly and will fit the openings of your structure. This approach ensures a smooth final installation and allows us to install quickly, minimizing downtime on your construction project.

Mielke Stair Company installs the stairs we fabricate. Ideally, we are on-site when framing begins (for curved stairways) or when mechanicals go in (for standard stairways).

"Dear Mike, I just wanted to write and tell you our stairs are working out very well. We have had tons of compliments. I realize our staircase was not one of your bigger projects, but everything is nice. The railings and treads really look great after we finished them. Everything was installed on time, and you were very pleasant to work with. Thanks a lot!"
