Timber clad concrete or MDF staircases are becoming increasingly more popular as more double storey houses and units are built or carpets are replaced as part of a home renovation. Perth Timber Floors has a range of stair options and can advise which will best suit your home.
When constructed, the same batch of floorboards is used for your timber stairs to ensure a perfect match. Real timber veneers are popular and most often used for the step riser to achieve a smooth evenly matched finish. This combined with a solid plywood base for concrete steps and various and stair nosing profiles means your staircase will be a feature of your home.
Come in to see and become familiar with bull-nose or pencil round nosing profiles, riser, stringer, voids and fascia which are all parts of the staircase construction. These are handy building terms to know and understand to discuss with your builder so we can help you to achieve the look you are after.
Will the balustrade be installed or not? Once the balustrade is installed your options are limited. Please talk to us during the construction phase to avoid costly changes and unnecessary cover trims. Often metal balustrade post fixings are installed with slide down cover plates for a neat finish.
Just a reminder “curves cost” curved bottom steps or features will cost more as they must be custom made from templates.

Beading and Skirting Boards
All timber floors must have an adequate expansion gap when installed as specified by the Building Codes. This is to allow space for the timber to expand and contract with seasonal changes.
At Perth Timber Floors we often jokingly refer to the engineered systems as the cake mix of the timber floor world. This is because like cake mix the messy, dusty, sometimes smelly process of sanding and polishing has been done in the factory, ready to deliver to site and install.
Plank on Ply
This method is most often used to build height to match marble and granite entry tiles or to patch and repair a variety of subfloor surfaces during renovations. 12mm plywood sheets are adhered and nailed or anchored to the concrete or other subfloors.
Repairs, Renovations and Remodeling
Remodeling your kitchen is the best way to update your home. In most cases, this means changing the cabinet layout or footprint, which ultimately means changing your entire floor.
