Most newer homes are fitted with softwood or MDF stairs, and the cost and mess involved in replacing them can be offputting. Therefore, Heritage Oak Stair Cladding offers you a simple cost-effective solution. By retaining your existing stairs, and bonding new oak treads and risers over the top, converting your staircase to solid oak becomes an easy weekend DIY job and better yet the cost is usually a fraction that of a new oak staircase. Our most common product (as part of this range) would be our Straight Tread Pack.
We design this straight tread pack to clad a single straight step. The pack will clad any straight step up to 1000mm wide, 285mm deep and up to 200mm high.
2 Piece Tread, 14mm solid oak with Tongue & Groove Jointing
Oak Riser Moulding
Oak Veneered Riser Board
You will need one of these tread packs per straight step you have on your staircase. If you have 12 or 13 steps, our handy kit may be a better alternative! The pieces will just need to be cut to suit your specific measurements once received. The treads and mouldings are all solid oak, so trimming these will not be a problem!
Stair cladding is made using a specially selected prime grade of French oak. Most pieces will be clear, with the occasional small knot which helps to emphasise the solid oak nature of the product
The riser board is made from a A grade oak veneer bonded to an MDF 6mm base. Our mouldings are finger jointed to achieve stable 1m lengths.
Standard and Custom Sizes
Stair cladding is designed to fit stairs with straight treads up to 1000mm wide when measured between the strings.
Tread depths (know as the "go" of the tread) of up to 285mm can be accommodated
Step heights (know as the "rise" of the step) of up to 200mm can be accommodated
All of these dimensions are well above what is normal for UK stairs. A typical UK staircase will have a width of around 840mm between treads, a rise of around 180mm and a going of around 220mm.
Oak stair cladding is supplied unfinished to allow you to match into your existing decor. We can supply finishes from our flooring finishing range if desired.
If bought in isolation, this tread would ship with a parcel courier. If purchased as part of a full staircase order then this will normally be shipped on a pallet.
The pallet carrier specifies the delivery as "kerbside" meaning they will unload from the truck only. You will need to be on hand to help move the goods indoors. Individual treads are easy to carry once the pallet is unpacked.
