Stair System Specialists exclusively designs, installs, and finishes custom stair works in all arenas. Whether you are looking for high end new construction, 100 + year old historical rejuvenation, industrial commercial applications, or a simple code compliant guard rail to keep the kids safe.


We create unique one-of-a-kind designs using multiple wood species, wrought iron, stainless steel, and painted part combinations to personalize each project and are dedicated to timely installation and quality craftsmanship. From a simple guard rail to an elaborate curved stair, we treat each project as a work of art with your home as the gallery.


For new construction we enjoy working with your architect or can provide design assistance as needed. Because of the recent boom in the "wrought iron" look, we have created a competent, reliable task force for baluster replacement that boasts timely installation working around your busy schedule.


Though we use many old traditional woodworking techniques along with iron and metal fabrication we are able to implement the most challenging of designs. Our experience with many species of wood keeps us alert to the idiosyncrasies they present. Our knowledge and craftsmanship turns these specialty woods and metals into works of art.

Elizabeth Borchard, Client

After a long search. we finally connected with Matt, who is an expert in handling unique staircase design. Being that our staircase is curved, we were really in need of someone who is outstanding in this line of work. Ever since our first contact with Matt, he made it clear that he was willing and able to do just about anything necessary to fulfill our needs.

Throughout the project he was pleasant, very easy to reach, clear on timelines, and always showed up when promised. I was concerned about the mess that a renovaded staircase would cause to the rest of my home, but to my surprise, Matt completed the project with little to not mess as all. This was a huge blessing, especially near the holidays. We are incredibly pleased with his skills and craftsmanship, we would highly recommend!
