Blackford and Sons Stair Treads now available to purchase online

August 5th 2009 in Hardwood Stair Treads, Stair Parts

In April Blackford and Sons launched a new Stair Treads division website, and now we’re pleased to announce online purchasing of stair treads through the website with full shopping cart. We offer many different species of wood, including Red and White Oak stair treads, American Cherry, Hard Maple, Hickory, Poplar, and Black Walnut.



As a family business we strive to utilize the very best manufacturing techniques and technologies available in the industry in order to offer a superior product and better value to our customers. This is one of the factors that contributes to the exceptional high quality of each and every product we produce.

One of the high-quality techniques we utilize to manufacture our stair treads with single and double returns is through the use of a special mortised joint used in attaching the return to the stair tread. This joint is called a “domino-joint”. The domino-joint tenon is 100% rotation-proof and far stronger than either biscuit-joints or even dowels. Most manufacturers simply glue the return to the stair tread, but here at Blackford and Sons we ensure life-long durability of our return treads through this unique mortised and glued domino-joint process.
