Remodel your ugly carpeted stairs to beautiful hardwood with the RetroTread®. Simply tear away your old carpet and install the RetroTread®.
Product Performance Benefits
- Extra long cove (1 1/4") is integrated under the nose to discreetly cover the joint between the old tread and riser. It also provides greater flexibility in covering imperfections.
- Gives the stair system a pleasing traditional appearance of fine craftsmanship.
A Commitment to Sustainability
RetroTread® is made of solid hardwood, unlike competitive products that are made of plywood with a thin veneer face. Our RetroTread® allows the same performance as solid hardwood products for strength, stability, and superior finishing.
Thanks to strategic engineering, our solid tread is thick enough to allow resanding and refinishing so it has the same longevity as a standard solid hardwood tread. However, it is also thin enough for minimal impact on overall rise and run of the stair system.
Maximum Strength Between Tread and Nosing
The RetroTread® is engineered to prevent the tread nosing from breaking away from the tread. Two factors contribute to this desirable result. Both the tread and nosing are solid components to permit the strongest juncture. The time-proven mechanics of tongue-and-groove construction increase the adhesive area by 40 percent, which greatly strengthens the adhesive bond.
Treads are solid hardwood construction, edge-glued, kiln dried, tread staves are hand matched for color, surfaced three sides, nosed one edge and sanded on face.
