Hardwood stairs in a condo

Living in a two story condo in the entertainment district makes it challenging to find contractors willing to do work for you unless it’s a full condo renovation. Mesh and Rajan had no issues with the job and were very prompt in responding to my request for a quote. I had been in contact with other contractors previously, none who were as prompt as Mesh and Rajan.

The work from start to finish was completed in 3 days. They kept me updated the whole way through and I am very happy with the result. The stain they matched looks bang on, I don’t think it could have been better. I would certainly recommend them to my friends.

Installed new stairs and refinished floors

Ideal stairs, removed old stair carpet and stairs and completely updated the staircase to the loft and the basement. This included new landings at top and bottom. The floors were refinished by buffing and varnishing and installing new nosing around the baseboard.
All was completed on schedule and to the originally quoted price.
Any minor issues we found were attended to promptly.
We found the employees friendly and willing.

Stair Railing

I had a very dated and painted iron railing with a vinyl wrapped handrail that needed to be removed and replaced. Also, needed a handrail on the 2nd flight of stairs. They got back to me quickly on my email request and provided a quote based on pictures I provided. We visited the showroom and selected finish and product styles within 30 minutes.

They showed up on-time. Workers we very efficient and laid mats on the floor to ensure everything was kept clean. Quickly removed old handrail and went about making and installing the new railing. Measuring, cutting, sanding and staining was done on-site to perfection. They were also able to place the newel post in the hardwood floor for a very clean professional look. The finished product looks great and very safe and secure. Work was completed within the day and clean-up was great. Job well done! Would call again for additional similar work and would recommend to a friend. Included is 1 before and 3 after pictures.

Stair and Hallway Carpet Removal with Hardwood replacement

I was confident with Mesh from the onset of discussions about our reno design ideas. The project was a complete replacement of the stairway, treads, risers, stringers, spindles and hallway flooring to match existing hardwood. All members of this firm were professional, accommodating and extremely well organized. Everyday the site was left spotless. The final Result was perfect, superior workmanship delivered on time , and on budget.

Quality work, timely completion

We wanted to refinish our oak stairs, change the pickets and remove carpet and restore wood floors in 2 rooms. Unlike other quotes Mesh and Raman supplied complete quotes including moving furniture from one room to another. No surprises. The team worked in a timely manner, completing the work on the date decided on. They worked cleanly and tidied up each day.we are thrilled with the results.

Great service

Mesh was prompt in sending me a quote and answered all questions in detail. Once the work started, he & Rajan were very good at following up any concerns we had and addressed them immediately. The stain was a great match to the hardwood floor we installed and the stairs look beautiful.
Thank you.

Flooring & Stairs

From start to finish, we were very pleased with Ideal Stairs and their staff. They worked with us to develop a scope and price that we were happy with, and were great at answering all of our questions as we went through the process. The installation was very clean and efficient, and they workmanship outstanding. We also had them install baseboard and door casings throughout our main floor and upstairs hallway. Overall, we're extremely pleased with the final product, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ideal Stairs.

New staircase railings

I found the Ideal Stairs company online and I was a little apprehensive because I don't normally use a company without a personal recommendation. However, I am happy to say that it was a great experience. The salesman, Rajan, was very knowledgeable, patient, and efficient. The two installers who came to my house were also extremely professional, tidy, and completed the work in a very short period of time. They were willing at any point during the installation to make alterations if I requested them. There were no surprises or issues, and the standard of their work was excellent. I would not hesitate to recommend Ideal Stairs and their representatives to anyone contemplating this kind of work.
