When it comes to picking the best finish for stair treads, there are three important factors that come into play—cost, durability, and aesthetic.
People often ask about common choices like vinyl, adhesive, hardwood, plastic, and rubber. That’s because they can be cheaper or provide a certain desired look.
However, materials like hardwood can decay and rot over time. Using adhesive can leave you with a sticky mess in the event you have to redo the project. Other materials like plastic, vinyl, and rubber tend to have shorter lifespans than their counterparts.
Additionally, other materials may begin to peel away and become ineffective at providing traction to reduce slips, falls, and other accidents. That’s why it’s very important to choose the best finish for stair treads. The wrong choice, while cheaper, could land you in serious trouble.
At Amstep Products, we recommend that you use aluminum stair treads. Not only do they provide a sleek, professional look, they can last an entire lifetime. The most common places you’ll find aluminum stair treads are busy places with plenty of pedestrian traffic.
Our non-slip stair treads are made with an aircraft-grade aluminum base with a mixture of epoxy and abrasive materials, which keeps them resistant to the elements. Our products save you money and headache from choosing a less reliable material for building stair treads.
