Find the Perfect Stair Treads by Material

Before you purchase new stair treads, it's important that you find a material that's appropriate for your home or business's unique demands. Dean Stair Treads offers a wide variety of American-made carpet stair treads constructed with the finest-quality materials, including nylon, polyester, polypropylene, polypropylene-acrylic, seagrass, sisal and wool. The material you choose will determine the softness, comfort, durability and appearance of your stair treads, so it's important to read up on different stair tread material types before making a decision.

Which Material is Right for My Home?

Choosing a stair tread material comes down to your personal preferences and performance needs. For example, if you prefer an all-natural look and feel, you'll appreciate our sisal and seagrass stair treads which provide an earthy, rustic appearance. These natural fiber stair tread options do have a rougher texture than other materials, but tend to be much more affordable. On the other hand, if you want superior softness and a plush feel, you may prefer nylon, polyester or wool stair treads in your home or business. If you're leaning towards wool, consider that we offer both top-of-the-line New Zealand wool stair treads and more affordable wool blend options.

We also carry polypropylene and polypropylene-acrylic stair treads, which provide excellent durability and come in a broad selection of vivid colors and printed patterns to match your unique home décor scheme and personal preferences. Choose UV-stabilized polypropylene stair treads for outdoor use. For more in-depth information on the types of stair tread materials, visit our handy material guide.
