Stairs Build Cost


Additionally, you are talking about the costs of the oak and the refinishing process (staining, sanding, varnishing -costs) that goes with the woodwork...

Alantic, the quote I got was just for the stairs, so there is no sanding because there is no staining, or varnishing, thats extra. Thanks so much

Stairs Build Cost


Having built one set of oak stairs myself I was thinking in the neighborhood of $1600 before I saw the $1400 quote, so I dont think that's far off. If you get a real cheap quote for a job like that than that's the quality of work you'll get... cheap. crooked, gappy, queaky stairs. My house has three balconies, one curved plus the stairs... I got a quote for over $8k material and labor and I did it for less than $2k material but it was a LOOOONG weekend...like 40 hours work in three days not including all of the staining and poly that my wife did.
