Stripping and Sanding Stairs

Stairs Sanding, Stripping & Refinishing

​Hardwood stairs, when properly treated and given a touch of TLC, can become a show-stopping feature of any home. Whether curved or vertical, painted or carpeted, your stairs can become beautiful again the way they were meant to be. As well as wonderfully aesthetically pleasing, a beautifully renovated wooden staircase is also hard wearing, practical and very easy to maintain.

Restore Your Staircase With Stairs Sanding

​When you want to bring your staircase back to its natural best then it stands to reason that you should trust only an expert floor sanding company. At the Floor Sanding Co we have many years experience in the renovation and restoration of all types of natural wood staircases. From single unit stairways in homes and small offices to larger flights in hotels and older style properties, we guarantee to bring your staircase as close to new again as is possible.

Strip, sand and define

​By their very design, staircases offer limited space to work in, so all stripping and sanding work is carried out the old-fashioned way – by hand. Although this may seem a daunting and lengthy task for the amateur, for the true professional it is just another challenge – and at The Floor Sanding Co we do love a challenge!

​We start off by stripping the old veneer and sanding the boards using a palm or a triangular sander to get into those hard to reach corners. As the stairs are stripped down their original shape and beauty becomes more defined and you can begin to see how they looked when first built, and what potential they have.

Stairway to heaven

​Once the stairs have been taken back to natural wood we will repair any loose, creaking or snagged boards and fill in any gaps which have appeared over the years to ensure your staircase is safe. (After all, nobody likes a creaky staircase – except in the movies!)

​At this stage you will really see your tired old staircase clean lined and redefined. Once we have a good ‘blank canvas’ to work with, there are plenty of finishing options to bring an elegant and timeless look to your stairs.

Your choice

​Our wood floor specialist will be happy to discuss finishing options and offer tailor-made guidance and recommendations so that you get the best from your stairway. If you like a stair carpet you can opt for wooden risers and treads with a carpet running along the middle of the stairs. Alternatively, the treads and risers can be treated with the same colour top coat for a uniform appearance across the bare wood. Or if you would like something a little different, go for painted risers and varnished treads – this effect is extremely effective and is always a talking point.
