Treads

Treads are the horizontal piece composing your stairs that you step on to go up or down. It is made with a full plank of wood, typically with a rounded edge on the front for a more finished look. Open staircases often use a tread with a “return,” which refers to another rounded edge on the other side. If you are installing hardwood stairs as a unique project, make sure you choose a durable wood variety for your treads that can handle the traffic of residents going up and down several times a day.

Risers

Risers are the vertical pieces in between stair treads. Many staircase designs these days include a different color, finish, or wood variety altogether for the risers to create a two-tone look that pops. Risers don’t experience the same wear and tear as your stair treads, so you have the option to use a softer, alternative wood for your risers or paint them without major concerns for scuffing or damage.

Trust the Professionals

Installing hardwood stair treads and risers is a complex project that should be left to the professionals. Every part must be fully glued to the stair structure to ensure your hardwood stairs are safe and secure. Customization and installation of your treads and risers also requires a variety of power tools. At Good Ol’ Boy Hardwood Floors, our team of experienced, licensed contractors will handle every step and complete your project in a timely manner.
