Questions & Answers

Are they polished and sanded? How would you discribe the surface for both sides?

Asked by Chloe November 23, 2020
1
Answer

Hi Chloe, each side technically unfinished. The oak side is a veneer that should not need any sanding. Wiping with a slightly damp cloth, or tack cloth, before applying stain is all that is recommended. The primed side is exactly that: a high quality primed finish, suitable for painting. That said, many customers have left the primed side as-is. The finish is that good. If you have additional questions, we'll respond as quickly as we can. Thank you.

Hi Momo, thanks for the question. If you have 24 treads, and you want to replace them, then purchasing 24 treads is what you'll need to do. They come in lengths of 48 inches, so you may have to cut them down to fit your particular staircase. In some areas, we do offer a 36 inch wide tread, so you may find them in your local store. The three square areas on your staircase are called landings. In some cases, landings are covered with flooring material such as carpet, or hardwood flooring. These are found in the flooring department, and there are a wide variety of materials available. Finally, stair projects can be challenging, even for the heartiest of DIY'ers. We recommend consulting with a professional contractor so they can evaluate the scope of the project. If you have additional questions, we'll reply as quickly as we can. Thank you!

What product would I use on the midway up landing? I will be using this product, red oak for the tread and riser.

Asked by Rob April 14, 2020

Answer

Hi Rob, if I understand your question correctly, you're asking what to use for flooring/surface material on the landing. Is that right? Typically, this is done with standard 3/4 in. hardwood flooring, carpet, or similar flooring material. If you're using all red oak, then using red oak flooring would be the best alternative. I hope that answers your question, but if not, post additional questions here, and we’ll reply as quickly as we can. Or, you may call our Customer Service Line at 678-455-5188 (M-F, 8-4 ET) where we can assist you with most any question you have. Thank you!

Hi George, there is a link to installation instructions on the product page of these risers (In the 'Product Overview' section) that should detail how best to install risers on your staircase. After reading, if you have additional questions, we’ll reply as quickly as we can. Or, you may call our Customer Service Line at 678-455-5188 (M-F, 8-4 ET) where we can assist you with most any question you have. Thank you!

What paint finish do you recommend to use? My molding it satin white.

Asked by Mel March 31, 2020

Answer

Hi Mel, it's best for the folks in Paint to assist you with that question. Professional finishers use both acrylic and oil-based paints, so it's up to you which you prefer. Since it's a riser you'd be using, oil-based may wear better, and be easier to clean.

Asked by Barbara January 6, 2020

Answers

Hi Barbara, adding a riser over an existing riser actually lengths the "run" of your tread by 3/4 in. It doesn't sound like much, but that may be enough to exceed most building codes. We sell a product called the "Reversa Riser" (SKU# 1002219309), that is paintable on one side, and stainable red oak on the other side. It's only 5/16 in. thick, so it may be perfect for your application. If you have additional questions, we'll be happy to assist. Or, you may call our Customer Service Line at 678-455-5188 (M-F, 8-4 ET) where we can assist you with most any question you have. Thank you!

Can this bend on a curved riser

Asked by Alex September 26, 2019

Answers

Yes, you need to make cuts on the back about every 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch (not going all the way through the material) The piece of wood becomes almost like a piece of chain

Are these recommended for new construction? 5/16 seems a bit thin.

Yes, white primer. I would use 1 riser for each stair so you do not have any seems

Is the 5/16 inch riser solid red oak or an oak veneer? If it is a veneer, how thick is it?

Veneer, maybe 1/16 I would not sand it, but it will hold up to use

I used the white primed side and was planning on installing and leaving the white exposed. This scuffed and got dirty extremely easy. After wiping with a damp towel ONCE, I wiped through the layer of primer and am now down to the base board in various spots. It looks very bad. I now have to sand each down and paint individually. Buy plywood instead and cut/paint yourself. You'll save a ton of time and money. Very poor quality. Didn't last more than a day after install. Picture - Top two stairs are scuffed. Third was wiped, and the towel went right through the layer of primer.

Just meh. The wood side doesn't stain an nicely as the treads and the white side chips when you cut it. We ended up using the white side and it looks ok but I wish I had chosen something higher quality. The one good thing is that they do flex a bit which makes installation simpler.

Hi jm, we're sorry that you found this product to be less-than what you expected. This product does cut cleanly with a fine-tooth, finish saw blade (at least it did in our tests, and subsequent projects using this product). We do hope your project was a success, despite the performance of this riser. Thank you. SureWood-LNL

I loved that these came ready to cut and paint or stain. We chose to paint them and they turned out beautiful.

These were just what I needed. Something simple and high quality to ease the burden of our stairs project. Since these were already primed we only used one coat of paint and one coat of polyurethane before install, which saved us time. They were also sized well enough that we only had to trim each riser, rather than the alternative which is buying sheets and cutting down each to size. This made our project far more streamlined and easier to manage. We glued these risers to the backs of our existing steps (after removing carpet) using construction adhesive. They are holding up well.

I purchased six of these. My intention was to stain the oak finished side. As I applied stain, various flaws began to appear. There were thin lines and patches where the stain would not absorb into the material. I tried a little sanding, but the oak grain disappeared where I tried that. I guess I will flip them over to the primer side and paint them. Five of the six boards had flaws.
