Returned Edges

Traditionally styled stairways sometimes require mitered edges, but they are not commonly used on floating stair systems. If one or both sides of your stair tread will not touch a wall, the tread is fitted with smooth bullnose trim to create a Returned Edge. This covers end grain, while also adding decorative flair.

To determine what kind of returned edge is required, stand at the bottom of the stairway and look up. If the right side is exposed, then you need a Right Returned Edge. If the left side is exposed, then you need a Left Returned Edge. If both sides are exposed, then you need a Double Returned Edge.

Double Returned stair treads require a special measurement called the “throat cut”, which you will provide when you place your order. Measure the length between the inside of the Left and Right Returned Edges to find the throat cut.

NOTE: If both sides of the stair treads fit against a wall, you do not need returned edges.

Clear Finish & Stain Information

StairSupplies™ offers several premium stain and finish options for our products, depending on the product’s use. For Thick Hand Scraped Stair Treads, we offer both clear finishes and stains. Select a clear finish if you want to draw out the natural beauty and colors of the wood. If you prefer deeper, richer tones, our custom-mixed stains are the ideal choice for your Thick Stair Treads.

All tread materials and products that are used underfoot are finished with a Conversion Varnish. Strong and resilient, this varnish is standard in the hardwood flooring industry. Our team of experts apply this specialty product onto each stair tread using a spray applicator for even, flawless coverage to protect your treads against heavy wear and tear.

Wood Grain & Color Variation

At StairSuppliesTM we believe that natural wood colors and visual textures add character to our products. With that in mind, we strive to match the grain and color of all of our wood products as closely as possible. However, due to the natural variation of wood products, there may be instances in which a perfect grain and color match is not possible. By ordering from StairSuppliesTM, you acknowledge that you are receiving a uniquely crafted product and there may be some variation in the grain and color of your wood products.
