People who have decided to engage in the manufacture and installation of wooden stairs are often wondering – which breed is best suited.
Quite often, when choosing different species of trees, the price becomes the main factor. This fact is not surprising, since the price for an oak staircase will be much higher than for a stairs from spruce. Now, spruce and beech are considered the cheapest breeds of trees.
If there are monetary opportunities, you can make a choice from another list of tree breeds. Here, reliability, strength, appearance (structure and color of the tree) or exposure to various breeds by the action of external factors (moisture resistance, oxidation, etc.).
The highest popularity among tree species used for the manufacture of stairs is:
Spruce. The small cost makes this breed very popular. It is often used not only in construction, but also in the manufacture of individual elements of decor for the home. This material is poorly affected by rot and moisture. The texture has a light, homogeneous.
Beech. Has a light color, a shade of wood can be gray or red-yellow. However, the tree of the tree is very sensitive to high humidity. Has an average wood strength. Therefore, the price is relatively lower.
Oak. Has light, yellowish wood. Gradually, it darkens. But the type of product does not deteriorate from this, but rather begins to look much better than when making stairs to order. Such a staircase will last a long time, since oak is characterized by high strength and resistance to external factors. The only minus of such a staircase will be a fairly high price.
Ash. This tree breed has wood much lighter than that of oak, with a well -distinguished pattern on the cut. The ash is practically not exposed to negative external factors, while it is considered much more plastic and stronger than oak.
Larch. This breed is characterized by high strength and durability. Its wood has a golden yellow and dark yellow color with light brown veins. In addition to everything, it is well opposed to humidity, it is little subject to rot, but it has a very high price.
Maple. It is complicated in processing, although it is characterized by high strength and resistance to external factors. Maple is characterized by a light shade of wood. Stairs from it are expensive, but will last a long time.
