Custom Adjustable Access for Erosion-Prone Beachfront

As many cottagers on the north shore of Nova Scotia have experienced, traditional fixed beach stairs require yearly repair and sometimes total replacement due to winter storms and bank erosion.

The unique design of Coastal Stairs allows for multiple interconnecting 10 foot sections to form whatever length is needed to fit your bank height.

Our component design makes it possible for your stairs to be adjusted to fit erosion changes in the slope of your bank, season after season.

The inter-connecting step sections are self-leveling once they are joined together, regardless of the distance or terrain.

We currently have clients with stair systems ranging from 30-70 feet.

The same set of stairs in the same location through 8 years of bank erosion.

4-wheeler access to site is required for installation and haul-out.

Final assembly at client location. We also offer seasonal haul-out services.

All stairs are made from hand-milled NB white cedar lumber.

Salt-resistant aluminum tread supports and galvanized hardware.

How long does it take to get a set of beach stairs?

We require 30 days to order materials and construct the stair sections.

Contact us for a site visit so we can get started on your custom stairs.

What materials do you use?

We use high quality NB white cedar, Teflon stringer ends, aluminum tread supports and handrail up-rights with galvanized hardware. All materials have been selected to be salt, water and weather resistant.

Can we leave the stairs on the bank year-round?

For longevity of your investment, we recommend that you remove and store the stairs at the end of each season. Coastal Stair Solutions offers annual haul-out and re-instal services for your beach stairs.
