One of our most popular species of wood is red oak. The popularity of red oak is due to its common usage in the stained flooring industry. The overall cost of a red oak stair installation is based on if you decided to use treads that are unfinished or prefinished.
Unfinished Red Oak
A typical install of unfinished red oak consisting of 12 treads and 13 risers ranges from $500-$800. This price range is also based on what type of riser is used. If our primed white risers are used the cost is generally in the lower range of the price spectrum. If unfinished red oak risers are used the cost would be closer to the $800 range. The size of the treads and risers is also a determining factor in overall cost. 36" treads and risers will be closer to $500 and as the lengths increase so will the price. Some installations may require landing treads and landing panels which can push the cost of the overall order to $1,000. Our unfinished red oak treads are shipped ready for the application of stain and finish. Ordering unfinished treads will decrease the overall cost of your order but there is a lot of time and work required in staining and finishing treads.
