refacing of stairs and railings

Mesh and his crew were a pleasure to work with. Always on time. Calling days ahead to let us know the schedule for the upcoming week. Very accommodating when schedules didn't coincide. We have a big dog so we were scheduling people to be at the house when the crew was there. The crew worked very diligently for long hours. They were not taking long breaks and disappearing like some other trades people we have had work at the house in the past. We would definitely recommend Ideal Stairs for any stair work you may need

Staircase renovation

The team at Ideal Stairs were fantastic to work with. We had them completely replace our staircase. They were flexible and thorough, cleaning up nicely after each day and matching the flooring we had. Communication was great and the work was completed in a good time frame. Would definitely work with them again in the future!

What can I say. Look at the pictures!
Mesh and his team completed these stairs in less than 3days. His team was super diligent, and tidy. Everything was cleaned up after each visit
My stairs are gorgeous. Im so happy I finally upgraded my old stairs. Worth every penny.
Thank you Ideal Stairs!

Staircase Renovation

Mesh, Rajan and the team at Ideal Stairs refinished two flights of stairs in our home this past spring. This included custom oak treads stained to match our hardwood floors, new risers, stringers, spindles, a planters ledge and restained our existing banister.

We had high expectations and they delivered. They exemplify "measure twice cut once". Their work is amazing.

I would definitely recommend Ideal Stairs to anyone planning to do any renovations to their stairs.

Installation of basement stairs and banister

Ideal Stairs did an amazing job. I had a carpeted staircase with no banister. Now I have beautiful wooden stairs with a matching banister. Kudos to Mesh, Rajan and the team, I couldn't be happier and would highly recommend them.

Installed railing on flight of stairs

Ideal Stairs installed a railing on an existing flight of stairs. They stained the railing to try to match the stain on an existing railing. The stain match is very close. They selected the new railing to match the design/style of the existing railing (which was installed 7 years ago) and achieved a good match. The work was done in a few hours and the job site was left clean. Time from requesting quote to finishing job was just over 1.5 weeks.

Excellent Stair Recapping

Ideal Stairs did a great job recapping our staircases, which were in pretty rough shape. They were able to reinforce the stairs from the top to limit damage to the walls and ceilings. They were also able to refurbish the original trims and maintain the traditional stair look and feel that we wanted trying to preserve. They were able to get the job started a week early and finished in the exact number of days that they had told me upfront. Having had some pretty tough experiences with contractors over the past few years, Ideal Stairs was really a great company to have around and I would definitely recommend them for your project!

revamp my spiral staircase and upper landing with hardwood floor

I have never ever dealt with such an exceptional company as this before. All the employees were highly skilled to give me the finished product that I had envisioned. From start to finish I was amazed at the care to detail and their professionalism in dealing with their customers. Very courteous and excellent communication with the owners and an overall happy business relationship with all!!

PRODUCTS
[.::STAIRCASES::.] Our core business is fine woodworking. We custom manufacture all elements related to the staircase industry. We make posts, treads (steps), balustrades (spindles or pickets), handrails as well as entire staircases made only from red oak. Combining the custom manufacturing facility along with skilled installation crews allow us to renovate your staircase in approximately 3-5 days. Visit our website www.idealstairs.ca to view our Testimonials, and listen to very satisfied clients who have generously allowed us to record their successful renovation in their own words. [.::FLOORING - HARDWOOD AND LAMINATE::.] Staircase renovation is not our only product. We believe we are the only staircase manufacturer that will renovate your staircase AND install hardwood flooring. We want to minimize the time and disruption in your home by coordinating these two products. We are dealers for many brands of hardwood and laminate flooring but our proudest boast is we have hardwood flooring that is 25% and 100% Canadian content. We offer custom colours on your hardwood flooring (over 750 square feet) for Red Oak and Maple. We value our premium service by supplying and ensuring the colour you choose for your flooring is also used on the renovated staircase. [.::SANDING AND STAINING::.] If you already have a solid oak staircase but you want it changed to a different colour, we also provide sanding and re-staining services. We can transform your builder staircase into a dream staircase easily within your budget. While you are considering changing the colour of your staircase, this is an excellent time to change the appearance. Since we will be taking off the handrail, pickets and posts to sand and stain your steps, take the opportunity to install another post style, such as square, remodel your existing pickets and changing the look from old to new. For the record
