Ash sapwood is light-colored to nearly white and the heartwood varies from grayish or light brown, to pale yellow streaked with brown. Ash is generally straight-grained with a coarse uniform texture. Ash machines well, is good in nailing, screwing and gluing, and can be stained to a very good finish. Ash has very good overall strength properties relative to its weight and has excellent shock resistance. We use only the higher quality grades of ash lumber for our landing treads.
We offer landing treads in 3-1/2" and 5-1/2" width in length up to 8' long. Our landing tread is 1-1/16" thick, and rabbeted to 3/4" thick, with a groove to fit standard 3/4" hardwood flooring, overhang is 1-1/4"
We now offer staining and prefinishing on all our wood landing treads. On our clear finishes we put on 3 coats of a commercial grade catalyzed varnish to give it a hard and durable finish. The prefinished landing treads end up looking great with a clear, natural finish that is hard to beat! On the stained wood landing treads a stain is applied, then 3 coats of varnish. If you want your treads stained you can choose from one of Woodwright's standard stain colors
, or you can send us a sample to have color matched.
The landing treads on this page are prefinished. If you are looking for unfinished landing treads go to this page. unfinished landing treads
