Red Oak Unfinished Retro Stair Tread Closed 11.5 in wide x 36 in long - shipped sanded and ready for you to apply stain and polyurethane.
Unlike 1" thick traditional treads retro treads are 3/4quot; thick and are designed to reface a stair rather than replace the entire stair. Using retro treads and retro risers will allow you to simply install over the top of your existing staircase. Solid retro stair treads are 3/4" thick with a full 1" bullnose and 11 1/2" deep. The "closed" style means that this tread has no mitered returns. Sometimes this is also referred to as a box tread.
Our solid stair treads are guaranteed to never separate between the wood staves offering a lifetime of usage.
In order to install retro treads on your stair case simply cut away the existing bullnose from each stair leaving a flush surface to work with. Our retro treads have a 1" bullnose along the front edge which is meant to hang over the existing step. Retro risers are designed to fit under the retro tread's bullnose to ensure a polished and finished look. For more information on the installation process check out our installation video for a step by step guide to installing retro treads and retro risers.

You can use the left side of the screen to sort out Length, profile, or species or tread you are looking for.
You will install the mitered treads the same way you install the closed treads. You will need the throat measurement before you order. The throat measurement is the area were the riser fits in between the returned ends. In order to install the balusters you will need to drill a hole in the newly installed treads.
Most customers simply fill the space with wood filler and paint the skirtboard but if you are installing a veneer over the existing skirt, the new veneer will cover any exposed holes or gaps.
