Southern California's Stair Builder Experts

Tom brings with him 18 years of experience in designing, building, and finishing residential and commercial stairs. His passion is woodworking and he has some of the highest standards in the industry, fine details that most ignore are areas where Straight Up Stairs shine. Tom spent his first 4 years of learning the trade in Utah under some of the best and most well-known carpenters in the country. He has never met a staircase design he couldn't make a reality for his clients. Before starting Straight Up Stairs, Tom worked for some of his competitors, learning from each of their mistakes. He knows what clients care most about, and makes their satisfaction his top priority.

We've built a huge word of mouth ecosystem working with some of the top builders in Southern California and a dominant social media presence you can trust our teams got you covered.

Straight Up Stairs About Us

Straight Up Stairs is a family owned and operated business. 80% of the projects are installed by the owner along side his master craftsmen. Originally from the UK, owner Tom Lawson knew his early interest in working with his hands, particularly with wood, would allow him to one day express his artistic side through woodworking.

Since beginning his craft in St. George, Utah in 2005, he has diligently sought every opportunity to perfect his abilities. With a goal of transforming clients' homes with artistic staircases, Tom has found himself on a fulfilling path to becoming one of the top stair builders in the United States. Humbled by both the challenges and the triumphs of the job, Tom carries that same passion he started with each and every day, demonstrating with one stair at a time that he and his company Straight Up Stairs are here to change the stair game forever.

Our company takes utmost pride in Quality, Integrity and Craftsmanship. No job is left without our clients being 100% satisfied.

You deal with Tom Lawson the owner directly

We take extreme pride in our communication with the client throughout every step of the process. Each component of the design is gone over in great detail before starting the job to ensure there are no surprises. We operate with full transparency from start to finish so our clients can feel secure in knowing exactly what is going on in their home. Every aspect of our work is custom tailored to our clients' requests, from hand picking each material to customizing each piece to fit every client's home individually. Our owner, Tom is at each phase of every project to ensure the client's satisfaction before moving forward to the next step. Each staircase is continuously inspected to be sure it meets his standard of excellence.
