    This Tread Cap Product Explained:
    This unique product the full replacement stair tread allows the DIY'er to accomplish that look he/she longs for without doing a total staircase tear out. This is a great solution for those beat up basement stairs or for any stairs that you wish to re-tread, without doing a full tear out. A full replacement stair tread is designed to go over an existing tread ( actually it's a 'Solid Cap Tread' ) thus this product is the perfect solution for renovation jobs.

    As Featured In "New Homes & Renovations Consumer Publication":

    Replacement Stair Tread Manufacturing Spec's:
    The body of our False tread caps is a full 3/4 inches thick ( not the thin 1/2 inch replacement treads that are being sold on the market ) while the nose is a full 1-1/16 inch thick. The full 3/4 inch body of our full replacement stair tread makes for a more solid and life long lasting stair tread, which will with stand the stress of everyday use. Our False Tread Caps are made from 4-7 pieces of solid hardwood lumber, edge glued together, with a full one piece solid nose that is approx. 2-1/4 inches wide ( so it will never / ever come loose or unattached over time ). Our false tread caps are manufactured to meet and exceed industry standards and stand the test of time ( they are not veneer top or not press wood core or not one piece ).

    Replacement Stair Tread Standard Sizing Spec's:
    - Total Width = 10-1/4"
    - Total Length = 36" - 72"
    - Bull Nose = 1-1/16" H x 1-1/4" W
    - Plowed Area = 3/4" H x 9" W
    - Sizing Note: We can make our replacement treads to almost any size you may need ( so, if you find that your run is more than 9" or you need them 96" long, this is no problem for us ).

    Busting The Stair Tread Myth:
    Many consumers are under false assumptions that a stair tread made from 4-7 pieces of hardwood lumber is not as good as a stair tread made of one solid piece of lumber... this is very, very far from the truth. A stair tread made from only 1-2 pcs. of hardwood lumber has very little strength and/or structural integrity against cupping or warping and fails to meet industry standards. Thus, we will not stock one piece stair treads and we don't manufacture them!

    Installing Full Reto / Replacement Stair False Tread Caps:
    Each stair tread will have to be trimmed to fit the stair tread it is capping... so all the full replacement treads may end up to be a bit different in size when installed ( like fitting a counter top to a wall, no two walls in your house are 100% true and neither is your staircase ). We recommend PL Premium Glue, this is the best wood construction glue on the market for securing stair treads. PL Premium Glue comes in a caulking tube, so it is easy to dispense ( PL Premium can be found at any hardware store, it is in a black and gold caulking tube ). Typically most do it yourselfers will put down an ample amount of PL Premium Glue on each stringer and then 3 ea. 2 inch face nails in the back of the tread, towards the riser. Then simply apply pressure to the tread face and continue on!

    Beware Of Full False Tread Cap Fakes:
    With any high volume product in any market place, you must beware of poor quality fakes! Please note: some companies sell flat stock lumber with a bull nose glued on the very front edge, which easy gets torn / ripped off as it is the pressure point of where your foot meets the tread front. Even worse 'Big Box Stores' like: Home Depotİ, Home Hardwareİ, Lowesİ, Kent Building Suppliesİ and Ronaİ are selling veneer False tread caps with a press wood or a styrofoam core ( this is not a quality full tread cap and only offers the consumer a cheap, short lasting solution ). Our replacement false treads are made to meet and exceed stair parts industry standards, made to your fitting size needs, and made to last!

    We Manufacture To Fit Your Needs:
    Do you need full False tread caps that are extra long; extra wide or made from an exotic hardwood ( like american cherry, jatoba or white oak )? If so, it is no problem at all for us! We can manufacture to meet your specifications.

    Face Appearance Note - We Make Stair Treads To Meet Your Job Site Needs:
    "Select & Better Clear": a uniform color match face... with little color changes.
    "Select & Better Natural": more color variations and color character in the treads face.
    The grade of stair treads that you prefer to buy is usually based on which matches your flooring best ( natural grade is the #1 seller ).
