About Us

Since our inception in 1986, R&A Stairs has established itself as one of the premier custom stair and railing manufacturers in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA).  With so many years of experience, we have the knowledge and expertise to ensure that each project reflects all the exacting design specifications required by each client.

Whether your dream stairs and railing are traditional, transitional, modern, or contemporary… or even something in between, R&A Stairs has the proficiency and know-how to realize your dreams.

Specializing in high-end custom homes, R&A Stairs works collaboratively with professionals including home builders, architects and designers. We also work closely with private homeowners who prefer to “do it themselves.”

Our end products have even been shipped and installed internationally to locations in the United States, China and the Islands of Bermuda.

Every company has “that something” which sets it apart from its competitors. For R&A Stairs, “that something” is our ability to connect with our clients.  Whether our clients are seasoned professionals in the construction industry or they are home-owners who are building their dream homes for the first time, at R&A Stairs we take the time to listen as they express their vision and we educate in keeping with industry norms and safety regulations. Together with the client, we focus on every detail.

The end result: R&A Stairs far exceeds expectations, time and time again.

At R&A Stairs, we pay the utmost attention to detail from the first site consultation through the design and layout stages to the final design approval, production, installation and walk-through. We explore every possible option, keeping all aspects of the project in mind—budget, design details, timing and preferences.

Rick Albrecht

Owner Rick Albrecht has been honing his craft in the stair and railing industry, since the early 1980s. He prides himself on his ability to spot problems on the blueprint— long before construction begins. He is particularly focused on educating his clients so he works closely with all clients—whether they are building privately for the first time or they are seasoned professionals who are well-known to the custom-home industry. From the very first site visit and the site-layout meeting through design and installation, Rick makes himself available to each client.   This means you will receive all the attention you need, when you need it, on your schedule.  We are committed to ensuring that your product turns out exactly as you envision it. R&A Stairs will give you what you expect… and more.
