A Contractor That Specializes in Staircases

Kurt Olmstead & Company is composed of detail-oriented craftsman who are experts at building and remodeling staircases. We can handle any project regardless of size or difficulty. In fact, we have worked on stairs for more than three decades.

About Kurt Olmstead

Kurt started as a cabinet maker but saw the lack of craftsmanship and design when it came to remodeling custom stairs. This motivated him to start Kurt Olmstead & Co. Kurt and his wife Jennifer have raised two daughters in the last 30 years in Orange County. He and his crew have been together since the start.

Finishing Touches

You can depend on us to provide you with a quality finish. Most stair contractors leave your projects unfinished. We however maintain a shop where as much as the finishing can be done before the installation of your stair case. 

Why Choose Us

We focus on what our customers want with specialty stairs and all additional detail wanted. We have also been in business for a long time, which means we have the experience necessary to build your dream staircase.

We are always on time as our reviews will tell you. We are dedicated, conscientious, and true to our word. We are pleased to say that we have never had a dissatisfied client.

"Thank-you for the beautiful job you did rebuilding our staircase. It completely changes the look of our house; the staircase has gone from an out of date eyesore to a beautiful focal point. The job itself was painless. You said it would take three days and it did. You were "on time" and left the house and yard clean at the end of each work day. Both the quality of your work and the ideas you brought to the project were a testament to your years of experience and impressive skills. Thank-you!"

"Very professional company and quality work. Love my stairway and everyone who walks in the house does too. I have referred Kurt to several people and everyone is completely happy. His workers are clean and coconscious. Left the job site clean each day. Safety was never an issue while they were doing the work. Kurt's design ideas were excellent, they were on time daily and on schedule as promised. Very Happy Customer!!!"

“Built and installed a new wood floor staircase and new railing

From the first visit at our house all the way to the finishing touches of this project, Kurt and his team did a wonderful job. Kurt is very professional, knowledgeable and his pricing is transparent and reasonable. The quality of the workmanship is outstanding. Kurt, who owns this company does a lot of the work himself, which makes a big difference. He is an expert in what he does and once he and his team starts working you can see that they love what they do. They are very passionate and want to make things right for their customers.”

“We renovated our stairway in our 2 story house. Kurt helped us by removing the existing carpet and rail system and installing detailed skirts to both sides of stairway and under upstairs landing rails, as well as installing tread end caps and risers to open ends of stairway. He also installed a new handrail, box newels and balusters - all up to current code. He finished off all steps to make them carpet ready.

It went better than could ever be expected. When we initially met with Kurt, we could tell he was an absolute expert in this area. We really wanted to get it done as soon as possible, but he was totally booked up. However, when one of his customers dropped out at the last minute, he thought of us and contacted us to see if we could slide into the opening. The timing was fantastic and we really appreciated his attention to the details of our timing needs. Our second meeting with Kurt was so that we could pick out the exact details of the handrail, box newels and balusters to be installed. He had loads of examples for us to look through and he was very knowledgable about what changes needed to be made to meet current code. Once installation began, Kurt and his team were onsite every day and were great to work with - they even were kind to our dog, nicknaming her their "shop dog" as she liked to hang around them as they worked. They worked quickly, efficiently and always cleaned up at night to ensure the safety of our children during a home remodel (ie. replaced the railings they took down each night so that the stairway would be safe for my girls.)”
