Timber types


The success of your wooden staircase project relies on the selection of the perfect timber. Whilst a number of different species are suitable for use in such projects, from jarrah and karri to pine and Tasmanian oak, they won’t all complement the design or your home. We can help you to select the right kind of species for your timber stairs.

At Gowling Stairs, we believe that timber is the most preferable choice for staircase projects. Not only is this material aesthetically pleasing, it is incredibly versatile – it can also be used in the construction of balustrades, handrails and posts. Wooden stairs are the perfect addition to any home, whether built in a traditional or contemporary style.
