What is a stair tread?

A stair tread is quite simply the part of the stairs you tread on! it tends to be a wide board becuase it has to be deep enough to take a large shoe size and allow you to step on safely. Wide oak boards are difficult to find and can curl a bit when they are thin so for stability these can be made from a few pieces joined together.

What is a roundover?

A roundover is the term used to describe a machined curve to the top and bottom edges along one side of a board which give it a rounded finish. This takes off the sharpe edge and makes a neat soft edge to where your feet may come in to contact.

Why is European Oak good for stairs?

Oak has been used for centuries as stair treads and many of the oak stair treads used on listed buildings have not needed to be renewed.
