If you are like me, building stairs is a tedious and sometimes stressful job. Well, with the RetroTread® that is history. I was not looking forward to re-treading a basement staircase in my newly constructed home and had been delaying it. When I found the RetroTread® at the local Lowes (right next to the dreaded standard stair treads), I immediately took one home to get a feel for how it works. I used the oak tread with a cherry stain to match the floors. Two tubes of adhesive and 12 treads later, I was done. The wood took the stain perfectly.
