A ‘super’ option for your stairs
Remodeling floors and staircases can sometimes be intimidating for even the handiest DIY homeowners.
But H & C Flooring and Stone is now offering the Super Stairnose — a product that can help make those projects a whole lot easier.
“If you have a staircase that doesn’t have a wall on the left or right side, or either side, you can use these stair panels for easy installation,” says H & C Flooring co-owner Wen Cao. “Normally, people have to make their own edges for open staircases and stain them afterward, but we made the edges for them.”
Available in shades to match every vinyl flooring option the store carries, the Super Stairnose tread panels are manufactured with side noses already attached.
“Each panel is highly textured on the surface, so they’ve got plenty of grip and are slip-resistant,” Cao adds.
The hardened vinyl wear layer on the panels provides excellent resistance to scuff marks and stains.
The tread panels are also available in a style made for staircases that have walls on both sides.
“They don’t have a nose on either edge, but only in front,” says Cao. “Both styles can be applied in minutes with curing glue.”
With two dozen flooring colors and shades, some available for as little as $1.79 per square foot, H & C Flooring and Stone has a bright, well-designed showroom with more than 1,000 square feet of flooring displays, making it easy to imagine how a style might look in your own home. Unlike the flooring models at most big-box stores, each display board at H & C is about 2-by-7-feet long.
“Because we have a bigger display area, you can really see the whole effect,” says Cao.
The company also carries all of the molding accessories you’ll need for the installation of your new floor.
“We have matching baseboards, reducers, thresholds, end caps, stair noses and 90-degree corner molding as well,” Cao reports. “All of our material is in stock, so you don’t have to worry about making construction runs halfway through the job. We have everything you need to get it done.”
Located at Kokea Center on Dillingham Boulevard, the company also sells two elegant styles of flagstone, great for lanais, decks and swimming pools.
“Additionally, we just got a new shipment of shower doors, so we have plenty in stock,” Cao says. “We offer five different styles of sliding shower doors, in two different types of frames — chrome stainless steel and chrome aluminum — and all of them have 3/8-inch tempered glass.”
Shower doors at H & C start as low as $350 per set.
