At the Fruend residence here in Houston we did a full stair remodel. The laminate treads, wood balusters, and paint grade posts were removed. In their place we installed oak treads, painted risers, and replaced the painted caps for oak caps. The Newels were replaced with oak posts as well, and we installed our PC1309/4, PC18/1, and PC18/2 wrought iron balusters. The end result is a staircase transformation from dull to striking.
