At Tongue and Groove, we believe your staircase shouldn't just be functional; it should be a focal point that elevates the entire aesthetic of your home. That's why we offer a stunning selection of thick floating stair treads, crafted from the finest kiln-dried hardwoods and available in a staggering array of thicknesses and species.

Beyond the Basic: The Advantage of Thick Stair Treads

While standard floating treads typically measure around 1.5 inches thick, our collection boasts treads ranging from 1.5 inches all the way up to a truly substantial 4 inches. This increased thickness offers a multitude of benefits:

  • Visual Impact: Thick treads create a dramatic presence, drawing the eye and imbuing your staircase with a sense of solidity and grandeur. They are a perfect choice for making a bold statement in contemporary or modern spaces.
  • Enhanced Durability: Greater thickness translates to increased strength and resilience. Thick treads can better withstand everyday wear and tear, making them ideal for high-traffic areas.
  • Luxury Underfoot: The substantial feel of a thick tread provides a luxurious walking experience, adding a touch of sophistication to your stairway.

Unmatched Selection for the Discerning Homeowner

We understand that your taste is unique, which is why we offer over 20 different wood species to suit your design vision. From the warm tones of Red Oak and Hickory to the sleek elegance of Walnut and Brazilian Teak, you're sure to find the perfect material to complement your existing décor.

A Commitment to Quality and Craftsmanship

All our thick floating stair treads are proudly Made in America using premium-quality, kiln-dried hardwoods. This meticulous drying process ensures that your treads will remain stable for years to come, resisting warping and cupping that can plague lesser-quality materials.

It's important to note that our thick treads are constructed using a time-tested method known as glue-up. This involves meticulously edge-gluing multiple planks of solid wood together to achieve the desired thickness. While this might seem like a more complex approach, it's crucial for maximizing the stability of the treads. Imagine a single, massive piece of lumber – it's far more susceptible to warping due to environmental changes. Glue-up construction safeguards against this, ensuring you receive a product built to endure.
