Retro Stair Treads
Retro stair treads are solid stair treads with a slightly different shape and a reduced thickness specifically made to replace a carpeted stair with a new hardwood step of a particular specie or color. Retro replacement stair treads are essentially "caps" that reface as opposed to replace the steps in a stairwell and are available as a box tread, left return, right return and double return stair tread. Retro stair treads are the perfect product for do-it-yourself'ers...
Since retro style stair treads are designed to be installed over an existing step they can be installed over an existing stair without having to remove the existing stair.
The difference between our retro treads and our traditional 1" stair treads is the method of installation.
Our retro treads are not intended to be a stand-alone installation and are intended to be installed over an existing stair tread while our traditional 1" stair treads are designed to be used in new installations or in applications where the existing step tread will be removed and replaced with the new step tread.
