A century ago craftsmanship was highly valued. Master woodworkers built staircases that were the centerpiece of the home and used time honored joinery techniques and craftsmanship to hand shape the wood and connect the various parts into assemblies. Lake Shore Stair Company continues to use and expand upon these techniques by incorporating state-of-the-art parametric computer modeling and precision CNC manufacturing. We create staircases with a level of precision and detail found only in the finest furniture.
Since 1932, Lake Shore Stair Company has been family owned and delivered thousands of quality stair, rail and custom woodwork projects. From design consultation through the manufacturing process and expert installation, every project, small or large, is performed with exacting detail. We are celebrating our fourth generation as a family owned company, dedicated to innovative designs that carry a classic legacy.
Our original shop in Libertyville has been recently remodeled and transformed into our design showroom. Our Ingleside location houses our corporate offices and our 20,000 square foot state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities.
"I highly recommend Lake Shore Stair Company. We hired Lake Shore Stair Co. to replace our balustrade and paint our stairs. They were wonderful to work with from the beginning. Communication and turnaround time were excellent. We are thrilled with the transformation the change has made in our house. They do beautiful work!"
