Not just easier, but more affordable, since Young Manufacturing’s newest innovation- Young RetroTread -delivers a solid hardwood upgrade of the stairs without having to rebuild.

Youung RetroTread is made in the USA by the same family of craftsmen who have been helping to build America since 1858.

Features and Benefits of Young RetroTread:

  1. Solid Hardwood Tread Cap
    Competitive products are generally made of plywood covered with a face of thin veneer and are not up to Young’s standards of excellence and craftsmanship. Super strength and stability are hallmarks of Young Manufacturing’s high-quality construction. Plus, it can be refinished just like traditional solid hardwood treads.
  2. Minimal Impact on Rise
    Remodeled hardwood system mimics original stair gemoetry.
  3. Superior Engineered Construction of Tread Cap and Nosing
    Tongue and groove construction increases the adhesive area by 40% greatly enhancing the adhesive bond; this along with solid hardwood construction provides maximum strength at the juncture between the tread cap and tread nosing.
  4. Extra-Long Cove Covers Imperfections
    1-1/4 inch reach discretely integrated under the nose hides imperfections in the original stair.
Features and Benefits of Young RetroTread Reversible Return Nosing:

  1. Reversible Nosing Design: Only from Young Manufacturing
    Nosing is reversible, so it can make a right-hand or left-hand return.
  2. Solid Hardwood Construction
    Provides for stronger, more stable performance with superior finishing properties.
  3. Increased Length Covers Original Imperfections
    Extra-long Return Nosing allows for asjustment of the projection on the skirtboard to hide blemishes present in the original design.
