Key Features

  • Replacement Tread
  • Craftsman Edging
  • Rounded Underside Nosing Connection for Increased Strength
  • Stain-grade
  • 1/2″ Thick Body with 1″ Thick Front Nosing
  • Multiple Sizing Options
  • Tread Depth of 11 1/4″ – Includes 1 1/4″ Deep Nosing

Front 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.

Returned Edges

Any side of the 8074 Craftsman Replacement Stair Treads that will not touch a wall is fitted with craftsman-style 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 8074 Craftsman 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.

Code Compliance

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.

Clear Finish & Stain Information

StairSupplies™ offers several premium stain and finish options for our products, depending on the product’s use. For Replacement Wood 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 Replacement Wood 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 replacement treads against heavy wear and tear.

Wood Grain & Color Variation

At StairSupplies™ 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 StairSupplies™, 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.

Product Q&A

do you look at the tread facing to the top of the stairway to decide if it is a right or left return, or is it looking from the top of the stairs down? Are your prices Canadian or US dollars?

Stair Supplies

Hi Kim,
You need to stand at the bottom of the stairs and look up in order to determine left and right hand returns. All prices are in US dollars.
Please let us know if you have other questions.

What is the difference between the 8074 Crafsman and the 8073 regular tread?

Stair Supplies
7 years 20 days ago

Thank you for your question, Panos. The primary difference between the 8073 standard tread and 8074 Craftsman tread is the nose of the tread. The standard tread has a bullnose (rounded) nose, while the Craftsman series tread is a squared nose.

Hi is the 8074 Craftsman Replacement Stair Tread front nosing edge a Square edge or 1/4″ or 1/8″ roundover edge? I like the webpage sample picture style but looks like it may have a slight roundover edge to it? Since I will be ordering a combination of the precut 8074 and several custom sizes, I wanted to make sure I get the correct nosing matched. Thanks.

Thanks for the question TN.

Our 8074 Craftsman Replacement Stair Tread has an 1/8″ roundover edge.

Are the replacement stair treads solid oak material or oak veneered plywood? I also have a 37” width with no returns, do I need to custom order a wider tread or will the 1” oversized cover my installation?

4 years 3 months ago

Thanks for the question Dave.

Our treads are all solid wood. We don’t use any plywood. It’s possible that the tread could be edge glued, but they would be solid wood pieces. I would recommend giving us a call at (866) 226 6536 to make sure we get you the exact tread that you need.
