Are Stairs More Expensive to Install with Engineered Wood?
Beautiful Wood Stairs
Which stairs are more affordable to install: engineered or regular wood stairs?
Asked by Mark T. in Buffalo Grove, Illinois
Wood stairs made out of engineered wood flooring are more expensive to install for the following reasons:
- You need to buy a prefinished engineered bullnose, for every stair step. Stairnose prices are usully 3-4 times the price of the wood floor used to cover the rest of the stair
- You will need to use single floor boards to cover the entire step and the raiser. This task is very time consuming, therefore more expensive than installing regular stair treads
- More so, the look of a stairway covered with floor boards is less aesthetically appealing that a stairway covered with stair treads
