Retro Stair Treads

Retro Treads are sometimes called remodel treads, cap treads, retro-fit treads, or rabbited treads. The unique design of these treads results in an easier installation. If your staircase already has treads installed (usually 2 x 12 pine) then you will not need to remove those in order to install these retro treads, however be sure to check local building codes before commencing work. This style of tread is more DIY friendly than traditional 1" thick stair treads. These retro treads have a 5/8" thick body, and a designer front edge that not only looks beautiful, but facilitates easy installation without having to rebuild your entire staircase. These are a fantastic choice if you're replacing carpet on your stairs.
