    These staircases can be manufactured in solid hardwood as well.
    The core would be wooden and we would work together with your stone supplier to make the marble treads & risers after intallation of the stairs.

    Wouldn't the weight of the marble cause the staircase to collapse if it were made of wood?

    Attached you can find a picture of one of our staircases that is marble clad.

    By laminating the wooden stringers in a special way, the stairs can hold the weight of the marble. (calculated by structural engineer)
