"Stair stepping" means laying the floor with a consistent pattern over a long run. For example, if you have 6 rows of flooring, all with a 10 inch overlap for each row, it gives the look of stairs. Usually, the proper way to install is to have a random pattern with wood, meaning that the boxes are shuffled and the wood is laid so that you can't see any discernible pattern. If you want a pattern in your wood flooring make sure you talk to us about it when we come out to measure. It is a lot of extra labor that can result in higher labor charges and more material needed.
