Full False or Full False Modern stair treads are designed to fit over existing treads or roughed in treads such as one would find when removing carpet from stairs.
Tread Type: Standard | Full False ( Tread Caps ) | Full False Modern | Custom Thick Treads
Q5: How many treads in total and what wood species do you require?
If "Other" wood species please note the wood species you are requesting in the "Comment Section" at the bottom of the form. Please know generally speaking speciality wood requests can take up to (5) business days to price, our mill shop may have to find a supply and source the raw wood species requested depending on current on hand stock. Lead times for all specialty wood orders are generally 3-5 weeks in production.
Tread Width ( Standard Treads Only ): 10-1/2 in. wide treads will accommodate a ( run ) size of 9-1/4 in. or less, 11-1/4 in. wide treads will accommodate a run size of up to 10 in. as typically required for all new home construction builds
Please Note: The tread width for Full False or Full False Modern Treads is determined by the plow size, this plus ( 1-1/4 in. ) being the nosing width equals the overall width/depth size for full false treads.

Q6: What size treads do you require?
If multiple sizes or custom thick treads select that option and enter details below.
Unless custom thick treads, our treads are sold in standard sizes of 36 in., 42 in., 48 in., 54 in., 60 in., & 72 in., please select the closest size offered that equals to or exceeds your requirements - all treads can be simply cut to size on site.
Custom Thick Treads
Enter your details below for multiple sizes ( ie; 12 Treads x 36 in. + 4 Treads x 42 in. )
Include Length/Width/Thickness for Custom Sized Treads ( ie; 12 Treads - 36 in. x 12 in. x 4 in. )
If the custom treads are for an open styled staircase where all faces and ends will be visible, please note your requirements ( ie; Good All Faces & Ends or Good Top, Front & Bottom Face Only )
Q7: If selecting ( Full False / Full False Modern ) treads we require the following measurements.
The existing "riser to riser" width or the ( Run ) as it is referred to, this is then transferred to the ( Plowed ) out area on your full false treads ( please see reference photos below). Do not include any overhang or bull nose widths in your ( Run ) measurement. We recommend measuring a number of your existing treads to ensure tread measurements have consistency throughout.
Our treads have a standard 9" plowed area, though these can easily be cut to size on site for smaller plow requirements or we can can make them wider depending on our customer's requirements. Once you exceed a 9-1/2" plowed area you are looking at additional costs per tread.
As not many staircases are 100% square, we recommend allowing at minimum an additional ( 1/8 in. - 1/4 in. ) to your plow size in the event you find yourself dealing with slight side to side fitting adjustments.
Note: To install full false treads it is required that you cut back the existing bull nose ( front edge overhang ) so that the existing treads are square or flush with the existing risers.
Enter your ( plow/run sizes / ie; 12 x 48 in. Plow = 9 in. + 3 x 42 in. Plow = 9-1/2 in. )
Q8: Are your treads all enclosed between walls or skirt board or are there some open ended stair treads?
All Enclosed Some Open Ended !Not applicable for Custom Thick Treads
Reference the open end's side ( LH or RH ) by looking up your stairs.
For all open ended treads we require the inside frame fitting size measurement, the overall length of your treads not including the open hand side's overhang measurement. We recommend measuring a number of your existing treads to ensure tread measurements have consistency throughout, review the left handed miter and double ended mitered tread photos below for reference.
If "open ended treads" please note the open end's orientation ( LH/RH or Double Ended ) & frame fitting sizes in the "Open Ended Treads Specifications" box directly below the sample images.
-Or If Double Ended Open Treads- ( Do not include the left hand side or right hand side overhang in your measurements. )
Open Ended Tread Specifications
( ie; 3 x 48 in. - LH Mitered Ends - Inside Frame Measurement Size = 46.25 in. )

Q9: Will you be wanting new risers or the recommended stair trim included with your quote? Ogee Cove Moulding is a finishing trim used to go under the treads front side where the riser meets the bottom of the stair treads underside, to hide the little 1/8 in. and 1/16 in. gaps that may be there after the install. We definitely suggest getting the trim especially if we are doing the finish to ensure match consistency.
Typically you require ( 1 ) more riser than you do stair treads per straight run of stairs. For example if you have a continuous run of ( 12 ) treads you'll require ( 13 ) risers, if the stairs are split ( with a landing area etc.; ) then you'd need ( 14 ) or more risers. Our risers are sold in 4 ft. or 8 ft. lengths only with the 4 ft. option being the least expensive to ship.
If required, can you let us know the number of risers you require?
Riser Count: Include Trim? Yes No
Q10: Can you confirm if " Natural " or " Clear " is the grain face profile you prefer. Oak is shown in the sample and shows the typical face grain differences. On standard treads there is an up cost of $5.00 per tread for the "Clear" profile. There is no up cost for the clear profile on our full false treads, simply customer preference.
!!Not applicable for Custom Thick Treads - !!All Maple Treads Are Clear Grade Profile Only
"Select & Better Clear": a uniform color match face... with little color changes.
"Select & Better Natural": more color variations and color character in the treads face.
Q11: Do you require finishing on your treads ( clear coat or stain )?
Clear Coat Only Stain w/Clear Coat Unfinished
MinWax Stains: The available Minwax stains can be viewed below or we can custom stain match to a physical piece of flooring. Please note, we would need an actual piece of the existing flooring to be color matched sent to us as we can not stain match to a photo.
If stain finish is required:
Enter Stain Colour -or- Select for stain match
We require a physical 8 in. minimum sample of the material to be stained matched sent to us. We can not stain match to a photo or flooring color code.
Please enter any brief details not covered above. ( ie; Requiring 3 pc. pie shaped winder sets )
In the stair business a “quick quote” is not always possible due to all the variables that must be accounted for. It is possible, dependent on your answers, that we may still require some additional information to ensure you receive and are properly quoted on the correct sized materials for your staircase project.
We look forward to hearing from you and serving your needs!
