Established in 2006.

Top Tread Stairways is owned and operated by Clyde Martin. Clyde founded Top Tread Stairways knowing there was a better way to build stairs.

With roots in eastern Pennsylvania, having installed hundreds of pre-built stairways and railings, Clyde headed west and was the co-founder and general manager of a successful residential construction company in California for 7 years.

After building 85 custom homes in southern California, Clyde stepped out of his construction office to pursue his innovative concept and dream of providing builders in California with pre-built wood stairways and railings.

Clyde has since sold his construction business to completely focus on PRE-BUILT Stairs and railings.
