The staircase for your home should be chosen very carefully and meticulously. It often becomes the centre piece of the house, and it is something that will stay as long as the house stays. Your staircase will also be subject to a lot of foot traffic, so you have to know which material will be suitable for your home. Here we will discuss about wooden and concrete staircases, so that it may get easy for you to choose between the two:
Timber provides a lighter-weight staircase than concrete does and this is important when you require a tall staircase or winding staircase inside your home. Concrete will place too much strain on your floor and also require additional supports for use in an inside staircase. Wood, on the other hand, will create a staircase that will not place undue stress on your floor.
The wood grain adds a special ambiance to the house with its unique pattern running through each piece of the staircase. Grain varies drastically between the types of timber just select the species of wood that appeals to your preferences the best. Of course, you always should select a durable timber, such as oak for only one suggestion.
Concrete is preferable in certain outdoor situations since it will stand up to rain, sun and other weather conditions. Outdoor staircases are typically not as tall as the indoor ones are too, which also makes concrete a viable option. At times, a porch is of concrete instead of timber and the concrete stairs complement the porch better under this circumstance.
Consider the benefits, size, height and location of your particular style of timber staircases to learn if indeed timber is the best material for it. We are confident that for your home, you will most likely prefer timber to the concrete for your staircase.
