Most newer homes are fitted with softwood or MDF stairs, and the cost and mess involved in replacing them can be offputting.
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.
This pack is designed to clad a single winder step. Most winders come in sets of 3 and you will need 3 winder packs to clad a full set. The pack will clad any winder step up to 1200mm wide, 570mm deep and up to 200mm high. The tread is designed to be trimmed to suit any of the three winder shapes seen in a typical set of 3 winders.
4 piece tread, 14mm solid oak with T&G jointing. Two longer sections for the front, and two shorter for the rear of the tread.
Oak riser moulding
Oak veneered riser board
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
Standard and Custom Sizes
Stair cladding is designed to fit stairs with straight treads up to 1000mm wide when measured between the strings. Winder tread packs are wider as the winder treads run at angle and are therefore wider. The pack will clad winder steps up to 1200mm wide.
Tread depths (know as the "go" of the tread) of up to 570mm can be accommodated. Often even deeper treads can be clad, as the rear most board is often cut to a very short length and the offcut can be added to the rear. In the unlikely event you had an even deeper winder step, then the separately available extension board can be used to add 142mm.
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.
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.
