Hickory is the hardest, heaviest and strongest American wood. The sapwood of hickory is white, tinged with inconspicuous fine brown lines while the heartwood is pale to reddish brown. Hickory is coarse-textured and the grain is fine, usually straight but can be wavy or irregular. The wood can be sanded to a good finish. Hickory grain pattern welcomes a full range of medium-to-dark finishes. We use only the higher quality grades of hickory 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.
