Creating a staircase just the way you want it is easier than ever with Coffman Stair Parts
Whatever your personal style or type of home, you’ll enjoy turning the stairway that you imagine into a beautiful creation. The step-by-step process below will help guide you to a perfectly crafted staircase.

1. Choose an Over-the-Post or Post-to-Post System Over-the-Post
stairways incorporate a continuous handrail that is set atop the newels and balusters for the length of the stair run and allow for the use of a variety of decorative fittings. Post-to-Post stairways feature a handrail that connects into an upper square block on the newel.

2. Select Your Wood Species
Give your staircase a personal touch with beautiful wood. Consider selecting from our standard species that include Red Oak, White Oak, Poplar, Hard Maple, and Beech. Add a higher degree of distinction with virtually any custom wood species. Coffman will craft virtually any style of stair in the exotic specie of your choice.

3. Select Your Baluster Style
All wood balusters are either pin top or square top. Pin top balusters have turned, round tops that are inserted into holes drilled into an unplowed handrail (as well as Iron Balusters). Square top balusters have a turned portion, leaving a square upper and lower portion. Square top balusters require a plowed handrail and fillet.

4. Choose Your Collection

Our extensive Collections are created to fit your style and your home’s interior setting. Their design possibilities are almost limitless. Find the look that works best for you. Choose the profile you like and combine it with your preference of Newel design.

5. Select Your Handrail
Most handrails are available either plowed or unplowed, as shown in the pictures, and are designed to correspond to your selection of baluster type.

6. Add Detail with Design Options
Enhance your staircase with a wealth of decorative design accessories. Coffman offers an appealing array of starting steps, rosettes and tread brackets provides finishing touches to create a richly decorated stairway that you and your family will cherish.
