Hard Maple Stair Tread Product Details
These gorgeous maple stair treads will create a statement in your home. All wood stair parts are custom made to order. Our stair 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.
Our standard stair treads and risers are made with a two to three piece glue up. Because each piece of wood has its own unique character, grain and color will vary from the sample images shown.

Customize Your Maple Stair Treads
Choose your needed depth and length, and specify other details for your order.
Standard or Retrofit
These treads can be used for a new staircase (standard), or retrofitted over existing stairs. They are made to order in whatever sizing you need.
Standard stair treads are a full 1" thick. Retrofit stair treads, also known as Retreads, are 3/4" thick with an overhang on the front edge, measuring 1" x 1-1/4". The depth selected when placing an order will be the overall depth, including the overhang.
Select your needed depth. Please account for the return when selecting depth. Returns are 1 ¼” wide and extend 1 ½” past the back side of the tread.
Stair treads and risers over 48" long may be slightly oversize with uneven ends. All sizes are overall, including the return(s). For example, a single return 36" tread will have a 34-3/4" throat size, a double return 48" tread will have a 45-1/2" throat size.
Nosing refers to the front part of the tread that hangs over the step. You can customize the shape of the nosing with a bullnose, squared edge, or eased edge.
Returns are needed for staircases with banisters. A left-side banister requires a left return, and a right-side banister takes a right return. In this case, left and right are determined while standing at the bottom of the staircase and looking up. If you have a banister on both sides, you will need a double return.
Choose a Finish
Choose from a variety of finish options. We can also stain or paint your stair treads. Our stain match services will match up the color of the stain to existing wood in your house.
Select a Texture
To add more character to your stair treads, choose a unique texture. We offer various texture options on all our wood stair treads including, hand-scraped, wire brushed, sawcut, and distressed.
If you wish for your stair tread to be sanded smooth and have no texture, be sure to select NONE in the Texture Options.
Wire Brushed Texture works best on wood with an open grain, such as White Oak, Red Oak, and Ash. On other tighter grain wood species, the Wire Brushed Texture will not have the same effect and will not be as visible.
All wood stair parts are custom made to order. Shipping may vary depending on your customization options. Please provide for a standard lead of 2-5 weeks for processing, milling, and shipping of stair tread orders.
