Stairs Build Cost


Hi, I am wondering what would a ball park figure be for a pair of stairs built out of oak? There will be 14 steps. Thanks to all.

Hi,

I have some questions:

Is this a straight run?
also, you mentioned .. 'pair of stairs'...what do you mean? 2 flights? a landing?

Does that include a railing, ballusters? If so, what style?

Thanks-

Thanks Alantic West, you are always there for the rescue. I meant stairs, straight run, from first floor to 2nd floor bedrooms. No balausters or railings, I can handle that. The stringers cut out, risers and steps all in Oak? Also what's the name for the moulding trim that wood go around the stairs on the upper floor, right around the landing openning, so that the wood floor could be butted to? Thanks again.

as info I just built a really simple set of stairs from my basement to my first level and the cost of materials was about $250. So if you are going with nicer treads etc than what I used Im sure it would be more. I can't really help you on labor because we did it ourselves. We had all the wood cut and the stairs built in 2-3hrs

Hard to say on this one....Do you want it installed, stained and varnished after installation, etc..?

Simple installation may be about $800.00 ? More if there are additional details involved...

but, honestly, it is basically impossible to give any kind of a price 'online' that is close to accurate, as all projects need to be viewed onsite, in order to get a proper idea of how much is really involved.

Thanks Alantic West, I got a quote on $1,400.00. Basicly $100.00 a riser, and that's not stained or finished. Just all oak, and it seems alot to me.

Sorry to say:
Actually Handy, the first conversation that I had with a fellow GC about your question....the discussion started at $100.00 a tread/riser...

Sorry, ...

...But it realistically falls under the region of 'finish carpentry'....and finished carpentry (and the materials involved/used in it) does not come cheap....
