  • Pre-primed White Retro Riser- 36 in


Pre-primed white risers are a beautiful and economical addition to any staircase. They are especially popular in homes with other white trim and molding. White risers are also a great way to lighten a dark staircase or provide definition between steps.
When ordering risers, you'll typically order the same length as the tread. These retro risers are designed to reface an existing riser while being thin enough not to offset your new retro treads past any existing skirtboard.
Our white risers are shipped with the primer coat already applied and can be painted with your favorite brand of white paint to match the other trim in your home. Standard riser dimensions are 1/4" thick by 7-1/4" tall by 36" long.
These risers are designed to be used with our Retro stair treads as part of the complete staircase remodeling system.

    • How do you prevent the first step being higher and the last step being shorter..
    • We typically find our customers are installing 3/4" flooring with our products and if 3/4" flooring is installed upstairs and downstairs, the 3/4" thickness of the retro treads actually keeps the first and last step the exact same height as originally designed.

      Additionally, it is our experience that the first and last steps of most existing staircases are different heights than the rest of the steps in a staircase due to the way they were initially installed. However, the natural tendency to look before walking up or downstairs typically prevents any height difference from being an issue so long as the rest of the steps in a staircase are the same height.

  • From Cliff Mcclelland at 4/4/14 10:10 AM
    • Is it okay to use the retro risers together with the traditional 1" stair tread if I am just attaching the riser to the existing riser?
    • You can use Retro Risers with Traditional Treads. You may need the Cove Moulding with this method since you may see the seam between the riser and the tread. Below is a link to our cove moulding.

    • Can the retro risers be cut? My stair riser is only 5 7/8" high.

    • The retro riser can be cut the the desired height on site with a table saw, which is very common.

  • From Anthony at 10/24/12 11:34 PM
    • if i intend to go with cherry treads and the white riser look, is it necessary to purchase the white riser or can i simply paint the wood that is there? Is there a benefit one way or the other and does it change the installation?
    • It is not necessary but is recommended. Most sub treads and risers and construction grade material. They have a lot of grain and character in most cases. Our Primed White Risers are smooth and have no wood grain showing. All they need is a fresh coat of paint. It makes the staircase look cleaner and more complete. It will not change installation, except one more step added to the process. See the installation video below.

    • Do the white primed risers necessarily have to be painted white. You keep emphasizing that. I would like a beige and what type of paint would I use, a regular interior paint?
    • No they do not have to be painted white necessarily they are primed white so you are able to paint over them with whatever color you choose. As for kinds of paint to use we recommend using oil based paint rather than a latex. Latex paint never fully dries and can cause creaks or a creaking sound over time. Oil base paints dry completely and prevent this issue from occurring.

    • Are these solid wood or a plywood?
    • The 1/4" primed white retro risers are a high grade Birch-veneered plywood. All of other wood species / colors and all our 3/4" risers are solid wood.

  • From Gloria at 11/8/10 8:57 PM
    • Do you have stair raisers that do not need painting and size 36" by 6".
    • The only risers that need painting are the pre-primed white risers. All other risers that are prefinished or "natural" do not need painting. We do not carry white risers that are already painted with a glossy white.

  • From patti at 11/5/10 9:10 PM
    • I am covering the treads with plank wood but I like the raisers to be white; can I use the risers you sell?
    • You can use the risers that we sell, they are already primed and just need a fresh coat of white paint.

  • From Cheryl at 9/6/10 8:20 PM
    • Can I paint the risers, add stencils or add decorative tiles?

      Thank you
    • Of course! That is actually a great idea. These risers are already primed, and ready to be painted or decorated.

  • From Asia at 5/10/10 10:07 PM
    • Is it possible to request that notches are cut into the treads before they ship? I live in an order house with cast iron rails. The bottom tread will require custom cutting. Is it possible to precut the notches prior to shipping, if I provide the dimensions?

    • Unfortunately, we can not custom cut any notches or angles before the product ships. Cuts such as these are best cut in the field to ensure the best fit for each product. Having a solid riser allows you to make any minor adjustments to the product during installation. We find that a jig saw is the best tool for cutting special notches and cutouts.
