  • Solid hardwood staircase tread cap
    While many products are made from inferior plywood and covered, our tread caps are made of the finest hardwoods and can even be refinished just like traditional solid hardwood treads! Also, our tongue and groove construction increases the adhesive area by 40% allowing for a much stronger juncture between the tread cap and tread nosing.
  • Minimal impact on rise
    Our remodeled hardwood staircase system mimics original stair geometry to allow for a safe and beautiful staircase.
  • Extra-long cove
    By extending our cove reach beyond the industry standard (To 1 ¼ inch), this stair renovation product allows better coverage of any unsightly imperfections or blemishes of the original stair.
  • Reversible Nosing Design
    By manufacturing the staircase nosing we allow ourselves the freedom to make a right-hand or left-hand return. This not only cuts down on waste but it also helps to speed up the stair renovation build time making things easier for the homeowner during the stair renovation process.
  • Available Stain
    This affordable and efficient stair renovation hardwood tread product can be custom pre-stained by us. This way, every staircase or stair cap system we install comes ready-to-use without the mess or worry of stains and fumes inside the home. Call today to find out our wide selection of hardwood stain options.
