- Replacement Tread
- Hand Scraped Texture
- Bullnose Trim
- Rounded Underside Nosing Connection for Increased Strength
- 1/2″ Thick Body with 1″ Thick Front Nosing
- Multiple Sizing Options
- Tread Depth of 11 1/4″ – Includes 1 1/4″ Deep Nosing
Replacement treads are crafted with a thinner ½” body and thicker 1” Front Nosing. This design gives the appearance of a thicker tread, while maintaining the appropriate tread thickness for compliance, safety, and ease of use.
Any side of the 8073 Hand Scraped Replacement Stair Treads that will not touch a wall is fitted with smooth bullnose trim. Returned Edges cover end grain, while also adding decorative flair. There are three configurations of returned edges available to cover the exposed edges of 8073 Hand Scraped Replacement Stair Treads: Left, Right, and Double. NOTE: If both sides of the stair treads fit against a wall, you do not need returned edges.
To determine if a Left or Right 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.
Double Return stair treads are needed when both edges of the tread are exposed. This style of tread requires a special measurement called the “throat cut”, which you will need to provide when you place your order. To find the throat cut of your Double Return tread, measure the length between the inside of the Left and Right Returned Edges.
With the exception of Double Returns, all Left, Right, and No Return Replacement Treads are sent to you with up to an extra 1” of material on the end with no return. This additional allowance may be trimmed on-site to match the exact curve of your unique wall, ensuring a snug fit.
Replacement Treads are designed to slide on top of existing stair treads. A consistent rise from step to step is important for safety and most codes require treads stay within a ⅜” zone of uniformity. StairSupplies™ replacement treads, when installed correctly, comply with most code requirements. Be sure to check your local code specifications before purchasing Replacement Treads.
Need something different? No problem! At StairSupplies™ we create custom stair tread lengths, depths, and widths every day. Use our Custom Replacement Stair Tread Designer to order the stair treads that will fit your home perfectly.

Are these treads made from one piece of wood or several strips glued together.
These treads are manufactured by edge gluing between 3-5 pieces of wood together, and then another piece is glued to the front to create the 1″ thick bullnose. Each of the pieces of wood is solid wood in whatever species of lumber you select.
Please let us know if you have any other questions.
My existing treads are 9″ with 14 steps, and I would love to replace them with the 11.5 size. Is this a possible solution with the 8073 style? Thank you.
Thanks for the question Brenda.
