Hardwood flooring in Jackson, MI from Christoff and Sons Floorcovering

Is hardwood flooring a good choice for a staircase?

Because hardwood floors bring a high-end look to any home space and because the planks can be refinished rather than replaced when worn, hardwood is a good material for a staircase. Also, long-lasting hardwood floors and stairs are prized by most home buyers, so the upgrade adds value to your home.

Christoff and Sons Floorcovering in Jackson, MI, offers a great selection of wood flooring, including popular species like hickory and oak.

Solid hardwood

Oak is the most popular wood species, and you can't go wrong in choosing this type of wood for your staircase. Red oak and white oak are available in a wide variety of light and dark hues, so you can easily find one to match your decor if you decide not to use a stain.

Maple hardwood floors feature a delicate, consistent grain with a uniform appearance, while hickory provides a rustic aesthetic.

Engineered wood

Engineered wood, which can be used on new and existing staircases, offers the same look as solid hardwood flooring. These manufactured planks have a surface layer of hardwood, which can usually be refinished once, and a base layer made of plywood.

Because of their makeup, these glue-down planks tolerate moisture and, like solid wood, offer an easy-to-clean surface.


If you?re concerned about slips and falls, slip-resistant hardwood flooring stair treads are added to increase traction on each step, or you can opt for a carpet runner that flows down the middle of the stairs.

A low-pile nylon carpet works well since nylon is a resilient fiber that bounces back after compression. Underlayment is placed beneath carpeting which cushions footsteps.
