Aluminum Stairs

Aluminum stairs are a common and upscale form of exterior stair material. The stairs are normally built in a stringer style and utilise a range of treads. Aluminum stairs are resistant to harsh weather and often last for more than 3 decades.

Aluminum stairs are elegant, efficiently installed, durable and personalised. These stairs are ideal for a vinyl or wooden decking system. Aluminum stairs help provide safe and attractive access to your upper-level deck space.

Don’t risk your safety or waste your time with DIY aluminum stair projects. Trust your aluminum stair project design and installation needs to Mountain View Sun Decks. Our team has years of experience to make sure your deck receives the highest levels of products and service.

Aluminum Staircase Treads

There are a number of stair coverings or finishes that can be applied to increase the aesthetics and grip of your aluminum stairs.

  • Aluminum Perforated Treads – Perforated treads are patterns that either rise from the stairs or are built into the stairs. These patterns add a custom finish and make the stairs less slippery.
  • PVC Treads – PVC treads can beautifully mimic a wood grain while offering an increased grip with the durability of an aluminum stair.
  • Vinyl Treads – Vinyl is a waterproof compound that can be designed to look like wood, stone or other materials and is laid over your stairs.

Durability Of Aluminum

Aluminum is a very durable material. Aluminum can last for upwards of 30 years without corroding or showing any signs of harmful oxidisation, like a steel stair. Aluminum stairs can withstand the warmest and coldest temperatures without bending or warping at all. The moisture that Albertan springs and winters provide can rot wood stairs but do not damage to high-grade aluminum stairs. Aluminum is also lightweight, and 100% recyclable.

Aluminum Stringer Stairs

A stair stringer is a board that runs under the staircase that holds its structure and angle. Closed stringers stairs often use two stringer boards on either end of the stairs. Open stringer stairs can use one board. Open stringer stairs have no backing and are often referred to as “floating” stairs. Aluminum stringer stairs can be made with any colour of material and can utilise any stair tread. Stringer stairs are elegant and modern.

Aluminum Picket Railings

Your aluminum deck stairs will often require a custom aluminum picket railing to ensure their safety and peak aesthetics. Aluminum picket railings are very customisable and durable. The pickets range between 32 and 42 in height inches and can be made with a number of custom baluster designs, spacing’s and tops. Spiral balusters, coupled spacing designs, speared tops and more can be installed to provide a luxurious feel to your aluminum picket stair railing.

  • Hi Steven, Happy Friday!!!! Just wanted to say hi and that I love my deck. The guys finished up Wednesday evening. I haven't had time to really enjoy my deck yet but hopefully this weekend I will. Thanks again for all your patience and help with getting this completed and to what I was looking for. I have all of July and August to enjoy my deck now and hopefully September. Have a wonderful weekend. April

  • Rebuilt the deck at the back of the house;because of cost we kept the same footprint as the previous deck;workmanship was excellent, the deck flooring is exceptional, almost like the extension of the inside flooring, loved the enclosed stairwell and the changes to the railing; very clean exit after job was complete, no delays in getting the work done;very pleased; in hindsight we should have spent the extra money for a tiered deck that we had in mind.

  • Our experience with the company and its employees, for the most part, has been excellent. The deck was enlarged and updated with dura deck vinyl covering, aluminium powder coated rails and lightly tinted glass over ten years ago, and it still looks great. Additional upgraded railings, opaque glass and a gate were later added. From the initial meeting with the sales representative to the completion of the project, the costs were on budget and on time. The quality of workmanship performed and professionalism of their employees can be considered first rate. The best part of having a Mountain View Sun Deck is not having to do any maintenance, just sit back and enjoy.

  • We had our old deck replaced. Complete removal and new installation. The work was performed during the winter and completed on time and budget to our complete satisfaction.

  • They came and put down my deck in record time. Looks beautiful. It was a difficult job because of a previous contractor had failed. They turned things around and left us very happy.

  • I hired Ewald and his team to replace a old wrought iron circular staircase off my desk with a traditional set of stairs in all aluminum. They were excellent to work with and I'd do business with them again anytime. Very professional, humble, creative, extremely detail orientated and excellent customer service from everyone. Price was fair and nothing negative to suggest about the product or service. Highly recommended!

  • Great staff, great owner, great service....could not be happier with my custom deck they built for me in 2015 and the issues they caught and fixed during the build. A great company and team....I would highly recommend. No corners cut....just quality product and service. Rod C.

  • Mountain View Sundecks installed an exterior staircase from out upper deck to the ground on our house. We were very pleased with this install. They were very responsive, met our schedule and came in at the price they quoted. I highly recommend them.
