Rated 5 out of 5Â by RonV Why spend more, these treds are great quality.
Since you have to sand and stain them anyway, why would anybody pay twice as much for "1st quality". These treds are very very nice, after proper prep ther is no way you could have a better outcome. The one thing I will say is get a couple more than you need, I needed 12 and bought 14 just to have more grain patterns to choose from (and I'm glad I did), I returned the 2 that I did not choose at my local store. I pulled my old treds off, painted my risers and installed my new stained and finished treds and my finished project is way nicer than I imagined, what a great bang for your buck upgrade.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by packrat001 Great value!! Much better than ALL competitors!
I read the reviews and checked prices at other stores and websites (including Lowes). This was the best deal of all. I ordered 15 treads to make certain I had enough without defects to use (based upon the other reviews that indicated some treads were not usable on EITHER side). There were a couple that could be used either side, but the remainder had significant flaws on one side - that could not be corrected by sanding. However...the "good" sides, with little sanding, came out perfect! I could use ALL the treads delivered. These are classed as "builder grade", but I'd say, if you only need one side (as in most applications), buy this product and save a LOT of $$$$. I applied construction adhesive to bond the treads to the rough-cut treads I found under my existing carpet. (I was replacing a carpeted stairway with red oak.) Using a rubber mallet, I seated the treads and they have bonded permanently to the stair framework.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Richard Good quality, great value, timely arrival
Of the ten treads I received, only one had very minor worm holes (1mm size and only a few, not a problem). A quick, light sanding with 100 grit, followed by three coats of urethane (sanding with 220 grit in between) created "perfect" oak stair treads.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Denise The product looks gorgeous!
We wanted to redo our basement stairs and my husband and I were looking for stainable treads in oak. We found these on line for a cheaper price than in the stores. I was able to stain and varnish them and they turned out beautiful. We did have to cut them down a bit but there were no other issues. The treads are solid and sturdy and well worth the price. We are very satisfied with the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 Very good quality
These treads fit the bill for my job, and look very good in place with the oak stain and polyurethane finish.
