High Quality Wood Stair Parts

Your home’s stairway is its centerpiece. It commands attention. It sets the aesthetic tone for your house and reveals its character.

Whether remodeling your current home or contemplating the staircase for a new build, you want to choose the materials that create a distinctive ambiance. You have many choices amongst the different parts of your staircase. On this page, we explore the components of staircases and the custom parts available from Voiss Wood Products.

Custom Wood Stair Parts

Staircases contain several custom wood components, including the following:

  • Stair Treads (Standard, Floating, Winder)
  • Stair Risers
  • Landing Treads
  • Stringers
  • Handrails
  • Newel Posts
  • Balusters

Stair Treads

Of all the parts, treads are the most recognizable. They are the flat wooden pieces on which your feet land. Standard treads are rectangular. When stairways have curves, winder treads are used. Floating treads are supported by posts, so no riser connects one tread to another.

Stair Risers

The risers are the flat pieces of wood that connect the ends of the treads, literally “rising” the staircase.


Stringers are the wooden pieces placed on the exterior of the staircase. They keep the treads and risers in place.


Handrails provide safety, stability for the staircase, and aesthetic appeal.


Newel Posts

These are the thick and wide vertical posts that support the handrail at the bottom and top of the staircase.


Balusters are the smaller vertical posts that support the handrail and are located between the newel posts.

When designing a custom staircase, you can choose between different materials and styles for each component. For example, you may choose dark oak treads and risers, a handrail with balusters, and newel posts that provide a traditional aesthetic. Regardless of your stylistic preferences, Voiss Wood Products can produce the custom stair parts that achieve your vision.
