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.
White Oak is an outstanding domestic hardwood that is widely available and therefore quite affordable. It is a rather strong wood that displays a very straight and consistent grain making it quite versatile and easy to match when making wider panels, for building furniture and cabinets. The characteristic that has made White Oak wood famous is the presence of striking medullary rays that appear when the wood is quartersawn. In the early 1900s, White Oak was the standard species for the arts and crafts movement in furniture building, today it retains its popularity as a furniture wood, but its uses have expanded to include many more applications.
Its unique cellular structure makes the wood highly water resistant, and as a result it is used in great quantities for exterior applications ranging from trim and general construction to furniture and garden structures. White Oak is the perfect species for many applications, and the only drawback is the wood’s relatively unremarkable appearance which is easily overcome during the finishing process.
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.
