Frequently asked questions

UWP Stair treads are milled, hand color matched and we believe a superior product to anything treads out there.   Some think a tread is a tread however there are different grades of wood flooring, lumber etc. Builder Grade are still a solid tread but has a little more mineral streaks and not color  matched as uniformly.  We consider our builder grade to be similar to the Big Box Stores quality / style. 

UWP sources our lumber in the North America for stair treads.  Red Oak is abundant in North America and price point is more cost effective than White Oak. At Unique Wood we, stock mostly Red Oak and White Oak treads in a variety of sizes.  Recently White Oak is gaining popularity due to the tighter grain pattern and modern warmer/lighter colors.  We can fabricate treads in-house to practically any speices available to network of mills around the country.

From our knowledge, big box stores carry a veneered tread (outside is still ~1/8″ veneer to give presence of a solid tread but the interior is usually compressed wood leftover inferior wood and/or compressed fibers (MDF), usually imported. As goes with volume based building supplies and/or big box stores if they do have solid is it not color matched and/or usually their treads are in made up of a bunch of 2″ strips (this done for volume and consistency. If you spending $ on treads why would you skimp on aesthetics (In our Opinion) Others will have solid treads but not hand color match, see below for reference and comparison.
Different species are available of course. We choose different species wood usually to match the type of flooring you have. These will be fabricated in-house to your specifications. There is a longer lead time due to lumber availability, orders already in production.
We are professionals at what we are great at – making stair treads. We are not set-up for hand scraping or distressed look, please consult your flooring professional to create this look.

Staining stair treads to match a certain color may be difficult as what we see as a match may not be what you see as a color match.  Also staining different wood species will create different stain color outcome.   We run into countless instance as issue with stain.  We recommend your trim or flooring contractor to stain and get approval regarding stain options.
