Our Knotty Alder prefinished wood stair treads feature a color range of a light brown heartwood with reddish or peach tones, to a light sapwood. Knotty Alder is similar in character to Pine, and may have both small and large solid, open knots that vary in size, shape, and color. Knotty Alder often has small and large split knots and open knots that may go completely through the wood.
Hand scraped wood stair treads, also know as distressed wood stair treads, have a rustic look that is hard to match. Our skilled craftsmen scrape each tread by hand. Hand
scraped wood stair treads offer an old world look that will add beauty and value to any home.
We offer two nose choices: square edged and full bullnose. Please select your choice below. Square edged is the more popular choice for hand scraped wood stair treads. Square edged hand scraped stair treads will be scraped on the face, the top and bottom edge of the nose, and a little on the nose itself. If a return is ordered, the return will be scraped in a similar way. For hand scraped stair treads with a full bullnose, only the face will be scraped.
Replacement stair treads, also know as retro fit stair treads, are designed to fit over your existing stair case, usually replacing carpet. Our replacement Knotty Alder wood stair treads are 3/4" thick, with a 1" thick bullnose. The bullnose is made by gluing a thin board to the bottom front of the 3/4" thick tread and then rounding the front of the entire 1" section. The bullnose is 1" thick and 1-1/4" deep. The wood tread is constructed by edge gluing boards together side by side.
All of our replacement wood stair treads are made from top quality hardwoods. Our wood stair treads are not engineered and do not have a veneer. Only FAS and Select grade lumber are used. Your prefinished Knotty Alder wood stair tread will be manufactured slowly and carefully. The result is a premium quality hardwood stair tread, adding beauty to any home. For prefinished wood stair treads, a special catalyzer is added to a commercial grade, 45 sheen conversion varnish. Three coats are applied to each tread. This finish is hard and durable!
For prestained wood stair treads, a stain is applied, then three coats of varnish. If you choose to have your wood stair tread prestained, we will email you after the order is placed to find out which color you have chosen. You can select from any Woodwright color and choices are shown here.
If the stair tread will be visible on the side, order a return. A return is a separate piece attached to the side of the tread. Returns should be ordered from the perspective of walking up the stairs.
The ordered dimensions always reflect the overall dimensions, including the bullnose and any returns.
Note: A return does not affect the overall length of the tread. Our returns are 1-1/4" wide. If you are measuring throat size, add 1-1/4" for each side that has a return.
The treads listed below are 3/4" thick with a 1" bullnose.
These hand scraped treads will ship slightly over length. The only exception is double return treads which ship at exact length.
