Our Wood Landing Treads are milled with new, state-of-the-art equipment. Quarter Sawn Red Oak Landing Treads are available in standard sizes or can be custom made to your specifications. Wood Landing Treads and Risers are also available in almost any other hardwood species. We offer various texture options on all our Wood Landing Treads, including hand-scraped, wire brushed, sawcut, and distressed. All our Wood Stair Parts, including Wood Landing Treads, can be ordered unfinished or prefinished with a Tread Coat. Our Tread Coat is a very durable two-component, commercial grade conversion varnish, specifically made for high traffic areas. We can also stain your Wood Landing Treads with a standard stain color or apply a custom stain of your choice. We also provide a stain match service. Choose from our standard sizes or contact us for a custom Wood Landing Tread quote.
All Landing Treads are custom made to order. All orders revised or cancelled after going into production (within 24 hours after order is received) will have a restocking fee of up to 50%.
We offer Quarter Sawn Red Oak Landing Treads with a depth of 3-1/2" or 5-1/2", and a length up to 114". All Landing Treads have an overhang measuring 1-1/4" deep, 1" thick, and with a standard body thickness of 3/4". (Other thickness sizes: 1/2", 9/16", or 5/8" include a set-up fee.) The standard 3/4" thick landing tread is the only size with a groove to fit standard 3/4" hardwood flooring.
Depth sizes are overall, including the depth of the overhang.
Our Landing 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.
Because each piece of wood has its own unique character, grain and color will vary from the sample images shown.
If you prefer to have your landing tread 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.
Quarter Sawn Red Oak Landing Treads ship within 3 to 4 weeks.

Quarter Sawn Red Oak
Quarter sawn red oak displays dramatic medullar figure called flake or fleck. The sapwood of red oak is white to light brown and the heartwood is a pinkish reddish brown. Red oak is similar in general appearance to white oak, but with a slightly less pronounced figure due to the smaller rays. Red oak is mostly straight-grained, with a coarse texture. Quarter sawn red oak can be stained with a wide range of finish tones and has great wear-resistance. We use only the higher quality grades of quarter sawn red oak lumber for our products.
