What are the Differences in Railing Infill Options?

We have three modern railing infill options for our floating stairs: rod railing, glass railing, and cable railing. The table below will show you railing options with relative pricing. If the pricing shows a single dollar sign ($) that means it’s an inexpensive option while two dollar signs ($$) means it’s more expensive but not as expensive as three dollar signs ($$$). Four dollar signs ($$$$) indicate our highest end finishes.

Thick Stair Tread Pricing

Thick treads are the feature piece of your stairway. We always recommend leaving your wood stair treads exposed, rather than covering them with carpet, to let the natural beauty shine through. We recommend 6 different wood species for use as treads on Viewrail FLIGHT. Each of these wood species have been tested for use on our FLIGHT system and will give you high-end performance. If you’d like to read more about the differences and benefits of these wood species, see the Which Wood Species Works Best on FLIGHT page.

Pricing is All About Your Choices

We have seen homes use Viewrail FLIGHT that are all the way from $200,000 to $20,000,000. It’s all about what space you need to fill and the finishes that you select. If you are hoping to cut some costs and save money, you’ll want to try and utilize a straight stringer and finish options that are only one dollar sign ($). This will let you get your FLIGHT close to the starting price. Or you may be building your dream home and only want the highest end finishes. In that case, walnut stair treads with a glass railing system may be the right choice.
