Replacement Stair Treads

Are you tired of your ordinary, carpeted staircase? Would you like the look of real wood stairs without the cost and mess of having to re-build your entire staircase? If so, then you need to consider adding replacement stair treads to your home.

What are replacement stair treads?

Replacement stair treads, also called retro stair treads, are made of real hardwood and are designed to fit right over your existing treads. That means if your staircase is currently carpeted with plywood underneath, all we have to do to give you an elegant, real hardwood staircase is to pull up the carpet and fit the new, wood treads over the existing plywood. We don't have to tear down and re-build your entire staircase. In most cases, your staircase can be transformed from tired to terrific in just one day. Each tread has a bullnose that is 1" thick and 1-1/4" deep. The remaining body is 3/4" thick. These replacement treads are available in almost any width and length.

Benefits of replacement stair treads

In addition to the ease of construction, replacement stair treads offer a number of benefits. Among these are...

One of the chief benefits of adding replacement stair treads to your home is the warmth and beauty they add to your room. In most homes, your staircase is one of the first things guests see of your home. A real wood staircase makes an inviting and positive first impression.

Hardwood adapts to virtually any architectural style or design motif. You can choose from a variety of hardwood species, from dark, rich cherry to honey-colored maple to rustic pine.

Replacement stair treads offer the durability of real wood. Unlike carpet which can wear and stain, hardwood will last for decades.

Just like a hardwood floor, each staircase fitted with replacement stair treads is unique. That's because no two pieces of wood are exactly alike. Each stair tread is hand-crafted, so you can be sure that the workmanship is first rate.

Easy maintenance
In addition to being beautiful and long-lasting, hardwood stair treads are easy to take care of. All you have to do to keep them looking their best is sweep them regularly and clean them with a damp mop. Stains wipe up easily and most species of hardwood resist wear from traffic (unlike carpet.)

Added value
Updating your tired, carpeting staircase to a hardwood staircase with replacement stair treads will make your home more attractive to buyers when it comes time to put your home on the market. In a sea of similar homes, your beautiful staircase could be that one thing that buyers really notice.
