About Oak Stair Nosing
To protect and accent your hardwood stairs, use an oak stair nosing. Stair nosings are flat with a rounded edge. Place the nosing on top of hardwood stairs, with the rounded end covering the edge of the stair. They protect the hardwood surface on stairs while giving them a decorative appearance. Stair nosing is available in a variety of materials, such as maple and cedar, but oak generally lasts the longest and is available finished or unfinished. Finished oak stair nosing comes in an assortment of stains; however, some prefer to purchase unfinished oak stair nosings and stain independently to ensure it matches the wood. These nosings are ideal for stairs that see a lot of traffic as the round edge of the nosing safeguards wear and tear of the stairs. Improve the lifespan, as well as the appearance of your hardwood stairs by installing oak stair nosing.
