Full False Stair Treads – Miter Ends



Understanding Which Side Of The False Stair Tread Is Mitered:

The biggest rule of thumb is to always view the staircase looking from the bottom up. So if your handrail is on the right hand side (looking from the landing or first stair tread up the staircase) then have a right hand open staircase. Thus, you need right miter stair treads!

Understanding The Sizing Of Single Miter Return False Stair Treads:

It is very important to know that a installed miter return takes 1-3/4 inches away from the total length of the stair tread. A proper installed miter return is done by 45 degree cutting the stair treads front side edge that is needed to have the installed miter ( thus, the front bullnose itself is 100% untouched ). For Example: the “fitting size” of a 42 inch long miter return false tread is actually 40-1/4 inches. This means that if you want the tread to fit a opening of 41 inches or longer then you will have to buy a 48 inch miter return false tread and then simply cut it down to the proper fitting size.
