Customer Questions & Answers

Are these made from 2x10s?

The smaller ones they stock in the store with 3,4, or 5 steps are made from 2x10s.
Asked by: uruiamme
These are southern yellow pine so they can take more load. The minimum width is 3 1/2" so it is the same as a 2x4. The following calculator should allow you to figure out the maximum span for 2x4 southern pine (southern yellow pine).

Aren't stringers made anymore measuring 7" risers & 11" treads?

When I used to make my own,this was always the formula but when i buy pre-made they are too small.
Asked by: John
I just finished a deck and I looked into pre cut stringers but I cut my own because I do feel the precuts are too short on tread widths.riser heights can vary a little between 6to8" but I never go less than 11" on the treads unless I have no choice like cellar stairs or other stairs with head room issues any pro should tell you the same

Would this look OK indoors if it was painted?

Is the wood smooth enough so it doesn't like like outdoor lumber or could it be sanded to a smooth finish?
Asked by: Bren
These are pressure treated. I would not try to paint them nor use them indoors.

Stairs are basic pine treated lumbar and are easy to assemble but BEWARE that these are not square! The tread angles are off and when building several sets of stairs for my deck I found that cuts for the stair tread vary up to 1/4" each. Check these by stacking them together before purchasing to ensure they all match? The angle end angles can easily be adjusted by trimming for square.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from They're stringers For what I am using them for. They will work perfect.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from These stringers don't meet code. Be absolutely sure to check local building codes before buying any stingers from HD. These stringers are made from 2X10s resulting in not enough wood between the back of the stringer and the tread/riser joint. They need to be made from 2X12's. I have to completely rebuild my stairs to pass inspection now. A huge loss of time and money as HD won't give the dimension of this most critical area. See attached photo. HD's stringers are about 4 1/2" in this area.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I really wanted a challenge putting my deck stairs on Executive Summary: Not quality, frustrating, but will do if you're up for a challenge to mending wood and doing some math. The pieces arrived in two generally beat up boxes (delivery folks weren't pleased to drop it off). I ordered 4, one of which was not like the others but could generally work around it. A couple of treads were 1/2" deeper than others but generally usable. A couple of them looked like they ran unevenly through a table saw. About 1/16" was cut into a side. Again, not a deal breaker but certainly not quality. There was an uneven edge to the bottom of the stringer. Again, nothing that can't be worked around if you're up to the challenge. I then tried to attach the hangers to them and wound up splitting the wood straight through knocking a riser off. That's because the grains are parallel to the treads which, oddly enough, is where the nails drive into. So, a little pre-drilling before nailing on others and some mending tiles on the knocked off bits, and it's solid again. So, if you're wondering why I didn't return them. Boxes were too beat up to re-use, I don't have a car to transport, and, before this experience I imagined this is always how it goes. Now I've learned better: When in doubt, return it. Thanks for the learning experience.

Shipped to store LOOSE in box 5X too big, stingers flopped around in transit like dice in a huge cup. They were not even secured to each other. Edges rounded but nothing broken. Cuts are not square, rise cants back toward tread 2-3 degrees. (see photo of square on tread) One of the two looks like is was off fall from another order as it has a power plane line in it. Long story short, I bought these as a 'time saver', the project is functional not pretty and these will work ok, but I'm never doing this again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a great buy Like a lot of projects I do I bought 6 stringers knowing that I would only need 3 or 4. I was lucky I did because two of the stringers were cracked so bad to be unusable, In fact the end step plates fell off when I uncrated them. After that I was able to use four with some glue and screws to make them stronger only to find that they were very poorly made. The cuts for the steps were very uneven. When mounted the first two steps would be level the the next three or so were a half bubble or more out of level. This not the way I build, nor a product of such low quality that a home center should carry. Some of the treads were as they should be others were terrible. Never again!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not straight When I ordered the stringers, and they arrived, they weren't level or straight. The height and pitch didn't match what I needed for my deck, but I made do with what I purchased.
