Closed (Box) Traditional Treads
A box stair tread is a tread with a wall on both sides of the staircase and thus has no mitered returns. This is by far, the most common style stair tread and the traditional style means that the existing "sub-tread" will have to be removed before installing new stair treads.

The tradtional stair tread style means that these treads are meant to replace your existing stair treads before installing new ones. This will require the removal of the existing stair tread.
Prefinished Traditional stair treads offer you the ability to install beautiful solid hardwood on each of your steps without the traditional mess and expense associated with site-finished stair treads. Remove existing stair tread then trim each tread to fit and you're ready to install; and because our traditional treads come prefinished, no messy stain or polyurethane is needed.
We also offer our traditional stair treads unfinished - meaning that there is no stain or finish on the stair treads. The unfinished treads are sanded and ready for you to apply your own stain and polyurethane
Solid traditional stair treads are 1" thick 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 and are available in many different species.
