iStairs Sacramento stair builders has been producing and building customized staircases over the years. We have worked on different wood materials on different customized stairs; we use wood material such as poplar, alder, cherry, specialty, paint grade, oak, and maple. While most of our clients are into oak and maple wood, beech has been gaining popularity in the stairs industry here in Sacramento.
Beech is a heavy and strong hardwood that is similar to maple’s appearance. Generally found in the northeastern part of the US and also in Canada. Because of the abundance of beech, it is relatively inexpensive compared to maple. Stair builders in Sacramento recommend beech very well because it can be easily managed through a machine and the ease of workability is impeccable. Beech has reddish brown heartwood and light sapwood. Oftentimes, beech is used in a variety of bent and turned parts and frames. Its colors can range from pale yellow to reddish-white — if steam-treated, it can turn into a red-brown shade. Beech is considered to be great staircase material due to its even, fine-pored structure, making it presentable alongside its flawlessness because beech wood does not have any noticeable markings.
Beech, although its workability is remarkable, is also commended for its high shock resistance and high abrasion resistance. Thus, it proves as a great alternative for more affordable custom stairs in Sacramento. Because of its varying tinge, it can be used as a substitute to known domestic hardwoods like maple and birch — per recommendation of stair builders in the Sacramento area.
Our Sacramento clients request for custom stairs with beech as a material, whether for indoor staircases or outdoor stair parts. You will surely love the natural elegant look of beech as it ages; it is the reason why a well-maintained beech furniture has been handed down from generation to generation. This exquisite yet enduring hardwood can be part of your home for generations to come —simply ask your friendly Sacramento stair builder, iStairs Inc., and we’ll build you a staircase that can withstand the test of time.
