Answer: 
Stairs stringers should be installed on 16" centers, meaning a 48" wide set of stairs will have a total of 4 stringers. Most decks are designed on a 50 lb / sq ft load assessment, stair stringers correctly installed on 16" centers will exceed this rating easily.
However...make sure any stair stringers you purchase have at least 5" of back area depth...the area where the tread and the riser meet at 90

However...make sure any stair stringers you purchase have at least 5" of back area depth...the area where the tread and the riser meet at 90 degrees...the thickness of the remaining material back to the edge of the lumber must be 5" or more...easiest way to tell is to buy stringers made out of 2x12 base material...be very wary of any stringers made out of 2x8...even some 2x10 cores fail this...
Always check with local building code enforcement officials...they will give you the best advice...before you spend your hard earned money... Read Less

If the riser height is 6 3/4 inches we have a total rise of 54 inches..( 8 x 6 3/4) Depending on the attachment method, the landing could be either at 54 " or 60 3/4 inches if the stringer is hung below the platform edge beam. I am concerned that HD still sells these stringers as the

Always check with local code inspector before purchasing stairs stringers to ensure the ones you purchase will meet local codes. Read Less

Answer: 
Hi John,
I doubt any store has a ready made stringer to suit your needs...75.5 x 81 equates to nearly a 45 degree incline...
I would suggest using one of the online stair calculators, one gives me a result of 10 treads, each of 2 of 5/4x6, treads, so using 2 x 10 lumber, create a stringer pattern matching the following :
(Based on 10 rises of 7-5/8")
Total Run (projection): 7' 6"

Hi John,

I would suggest using one of the online stair calculators, one gives me a result of 10 treads, each of 2 of 5/4x6, treads, so using 2 x 10 lumber, create a stringer pattern matching the following :
(Based on 10 rises of 7-5/8")
Total Run (projection): 7' 6"
Total Rise: 6' 4"
Step Run: 10"
Step Rise: 7-5/8"
Bottom Step Rise: 6-5/8"
Angle: 37.23°
Stringer Length: 9' 5-1/16"
If you don't have the necessary experience to create a stringer from scratch, perhaps you could purchase one of the 8 step and use it as a template to create a 10 step unit...just make sure the back space area remains above 5" thru the section...use 2 x 10 or 2 x 12 lumber ...don't use 2 x 8 lumber, as it will not yield the required 5" backspace needed for code.
If you don't have room for that run length, you may need to add a transition platform, which should be a minimum of 36" x 36" in size...
Hope this helps... Read Less

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 51 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy and quick I bought two stringers to repair an old garage 2 step staircase. The stringers are solid and look great, as well. Both stringers measured exact which made the job easier. November 11, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 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. April 3, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ok shape...damaged got it shipped and was damaged will be returning one stringer March 3, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Looked flimsy The stringers looked fragile so I searched reviews and found after the fact (I had already stained the stringers) that reviewers were saying they were most likely not to code as they are made out of 10" boards, not 12". So, to be on the safe side, I ended up not using them. August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The product and time of delivery were excellent. The stringer were of high quality, easy to install and look good. August 10, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. October 1, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Poor Quality The stairs are not cut consistently. The 10" cut on the stairs measured anywhere between 9.75" and 10.5". They also arrived very wet, had to let dry out for several days before they were paintable. Make your own, they will be better. June 25, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by awful product These stringers were awful. The stairs were all jagged, looks like the saw blade may have even broke off a couple of times. The cuts on these stairs was awful. Somebody need to learn how to use a saw and HD really needs to make a template for these. June 23, 2016
