Unlike 1" thick traditional treads retro treads are 3/4" 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" thick 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.
We use solid wood in our products for durability, no thin veneers like some of the other products you may have seen! Our solid stair treads are guaranteed to never separate between the wood staves and are the right way to install hardwood on your steps.

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.
