The Hardwood Lumber Company manufactures high quality wood winder treads at affordable prices. You will be very happy with the quality of our winder treads. Our winder treads are milled with new state of the art equipment. We can make the stair treads with a left or right hand return. Winder treads are stair treads that are intended to be used to round corners that standard stair treads could not. This means that all winder treads will be triangular in shape, instead of rectangular like standard stair treads. Winder treads are designed to make angled turns in staircases far more comfortable and natural. Some would prefer a landing at an angled turn in a staircase, but this stunts the continuity of the staircase and can feel out of place. Rather than using a landing at angled turns, winder treads can give a far nicer looking appearance that doesn’t feel so stunted. Winder treads are typically bought in sets of 2 to 3, as any more than this on a single corner can make the steps feel too small.
Our winder treads are available in standard sizes or can be custom made to your specifications. Winder treads are also available in almost any other hardwood species. Custom wood winder tread options include standard or retrofit stair treads in any custom sizes you might need. We offer various texture options on all our wood winder treads including hand scraped, hand planed, wire brushed, saw cut, wormholes, chiseled edges and distressed. All our wood stair parts including winder treads can be ordered unfinished or prefinished with a tread coat, a very durable two-component, commercial grade conversion varnish specifically made for high traffic areas. We can also stain your wood winder treads with a standard stain color or apply a custom stain of your choice. We also provide a stain match service.
Standard winder treads are a full 1" thick. Retrofit stair treads also known as retreads are made to fit over your existing stairs. Our retrofit winder treads have a 1" thick bullnose with a 1-1/4" overhang. The body is 3/4" thick.
Returns are 1-1/4" wide and extend 1-1/2" past the back side of the tread. Left or right return is determined by standing at the bottom of the stairs looking up, though this differs slightly with winder treads due to their unique purpose. The listed sizes account for only the throat if no return has been selected and both the throat and return if a return has been selected. For example, a right return 36" tread will have a 34-3/4" throat size.
All wood stair parts are custom made to order. Our Winder Treads are sanded and maintained perfectly on top, while the bottom is left in a potentially rough state, untouched, because when installed it will never be visible. Wood winder treads ship in four to six weeks.
