Quick Overview

Please order a sample pack for color selection before ordering builder grade products as all sales are final on these products - no returns, refunds, or exchanges

Builder grade retro-fit stair treads are an economical option to reface your staircase with real wood. Builder grade treads will have more character in the wood, including small knots and discoloration from mineral in the wood. There will also be more staves (up to 8) in these treads when compared to our standard Oak retros.

Red Oak Retro Stair Tread 36" - 42" wide for overlaying an existing staircase with a wall on both sides (closed staircase).

Our Retro Treads are 11 1/2" wide and 3/4" thick behind the bullnose and are specifically designed to be installed over an existing staircase. Use unfinished Red Oak retro treads to apply your own stain and polyurethane on site after some minor prep-work, or order prefinished treads in one of our stock stain colors with our standard sheen UV finish or our new Low Sheen UV finish.

Details

Please order a sample pack for color selection before ordering builder grade products as all sales are final on these products - because builder grade products are a less expensive alternative to select grade products, no returns, refunds, or exchanges are accepted on any builder grade item. We encourage you to order a few extra pieces to allow for selection during install.

Red Oak Builder Grade Retro Stair Tread Closed - 3/4" thick x 11.5 in wide - Use unfinished Red Oak retro treads to apply your own stain and polyurethane on site after some minor prep-work or order finished retro treads in one of our standard stain colors (be sure to order your sample pack first to select a color).

Unlike 1" thick traditional treads which are used when building a new staircase, retro treads are 3/4" thick and are designed to reface a stair rather than replace the entire stair. See the installation video for more detailed information. 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 (see types of staircases). 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 and can be sanded and refinished if ever necessary.

To install retro treads on your staircase simply cut away the existing bullnose from each stair leaving a flush surface to overlay the tread. Our retro treads have a 1" bullnose along the front edge which will hang over the existing step by 1/4". Retro risers fit behind the retro tread's bullnose to cover the existing riser and complete you installation. 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.

Sheen Level

We are now offering two sheen levels on our UV-finished stair treads:

  • Standard UV (Semi-gloss)
  • Low-Sheen (Matte / Flat)
C28 Low Sheen Example

Choose the sheen level that best blends with your decor and design preferences. The standard sheen level blends with many popular wood flooring choices. The low sheen option is popular for coordinating with many ceramic or LVP flooring options.

Please note: There are some minor color differences between products finished with the two different sheens. The standard sheen shows a more vibrant and true stain color while the flattening agents in the low sheen add a white or "milky" hue to the finished product.

Stain Colors

Retro treads are available in a number of different stain colors to coordinate with your flooring and decor selections. Be sure to order a sample pack to make a color selection based on the real wood stain colors as different devices will adjust colors and may appear inaccurately on digital screens.

Product Questions

If I order unfinished treads which I'll stain myself, would sheen level make any difference? I would be finishing over the sheen, correct?
