Estate Millwork makes solid custom stair treads that can be configured for new construction in any thickness (typically 1"), or as replacement stair treads (typically 5/8"). Our treads can be ordered with square or bullnose profiling, or any custom profile as well. Treads can be ordered with or with out nosing, and the nosing options include left hand, right hand or both. Custom and odd sizes are no problem, and you can use our online quotation tool to price and order, or for move custom options, please send us your drawings or call to discuss.
Each stair tread we manufacture begins with FAS grade hardwood lumber, much of which we kiln dry in our proprietary kilns. The rough lumber is machined to the desired dimensions in our finish mill and then is carefully fashioned into premium quality treads which can optionally have nosings or profiling done. We grain match and reverse the grain of each board component in the stair, but we can also manufacture monolithic stair treads in thicknesses up to 4" and beyond. Our stock hardwood selection includes Red Oak, White Oak, Poplar, Mahgoany, Walnut -- over 15 species, but we can manufacture in any species you desire.
Our plant uses only locally sourced domestic hardwoods and premium plantation imports. We do 100% of the processing in the USA, proudly. Much of our wood working equipment is American made and all of our machining, assembling and finishing is done in our state of the art facility in Western Pennsylvania. The skilled craftsmen who create our products, some in the third generation, take pride in each unit we assemble and enjoy the proud heritage that Appalachian hardwoods and Appalachian craftsmen can imbue to our timeless custom stair treads, risers and parts.
Walnut Hardwood Lumber is a premium domestic hardwood valued for its rich color and excellent finishing qualities. Walnut has a slightly open grain varying from wavy to irregular with an even and uniform medium to coarse texture. Walnut is a unique domestic species, because there are no other North American species of wood with the same distinct chocolate brown colored heartwood. The wood's rich tones make for excellent doors and paneling, and as a furniture wood, it is hard to beat.
Walnut gained popularity back when colonists started importing the lumber to Europe for furniture and interior woorwork, because it was so plentiful then it was easier and cheaper to obtain than Mahogany.
Today, Walnut is still highly prized for furniture and interior woodwork, but it is growing in popularity is starting to match that of Cherry. A significant development in the Walnut lumber use is in the marine industry, boat builders are now using the dark color on yacht interiors as a contrast to the lighter tones of Teak. At heart Walnut wood is a statement of luxury and is used in many applications to that effect.
Freshly milled Walnut can exhibit many different color hues, from deep browns and purples to light creams. Steaming Walnut will even out some of those color variations and creates a much more uniform and mellow chocolate color, over time and with oxidation and exposure to the sun Walnut will lighten in color and blends well with most other species.
At Estate Millwork we air dry much of our lumber, and after air drying we finish drying in low wattage dehumidification kilns.
Every piece of wood we purchase is used to the fullest on products, at Estate Millwork we have a very high yield ratio of 94 percent due to the use of automated saws and optimizing software. The remainimg 6 percent which is mostly sawdust and chips are either burned to heat our plant or send to local cattle farmers for bedding and composting.
Nothing is wasted. Some of Appalachian lumber we use comes from Amish farmers in our county who harvest with horses instead of mechanized equipment, and do our rough sawing on 1920s sawmills that are also extremely low input compared to larger commercial sawmills of today. All of our imported lumber is plantation grown, and not harvested from natural forests.
