Traditionally framed staircases make up a large portion of remodel projects, but this should not prevent the customer from obtaining the modern look they want. By using replacement treads with a thick nosing drop down we can give the appearance of a modern thick tread on an otherwise traditionally framed stair. These are simple to install and pair well with any post to post railing system.
Note, wood products may have varying amounts of staves due to the varying thicknesses of lumber that comes in each bunk and the width of the product.
- Replacement Tread
- Craftsman Edging
- Miter-locked nosing connection for strong connection
- 3/4″ Thick Body with Thick Front Nosing

- Tread Depth of 11 1/4″ – Includes 10″ body depth + 1 1/4″ nosing depth
Replacement treads are crafted with a thinner 3/4” body and a deeper 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 thick nosing 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 Thick Nosing 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.
