Unfinished products are considered commodities and will require some degree of additional minor prep-work before they can be considered complete, or "finished". Some degree of sanding / puttying is to be expected before finishing. Alternatively, consider ordering prefinished products.

Red Oak Unfinished Retro Stair Tread Closed 11.5 in wide x 42 in long. Use unfinished treads to apply your own stain and polyurethane on site - some degree of sanding and minor prep-work should be expected..

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.

Product Questions

Sort by ASC
What is the difference between the Red Oak and the White Oak? Is it just the color and wood grain or is one a better quality wood than the other? Also, what would be the expected turn time once an order is place? I have 12 stairs that I would need to order the retro treads for, should I order an extra 1 or 2 for spoilage?
Is this ready for stain or do I have to do something to it? Also, is this solid wood or is there some kind of different core?

Are these retro stair treads only available online?
