riser
Riser 
Risers are the boards that form the vertical face of each step.  This creates the "toe kick" area between the stair treads.
 
Standard riser sizes include 36", 42" and 48" lengths.*
Various thickness options are offered to accommodate most staircase configurations.
  • White risers are available in 1/4" and 3/4" MDF board
Certain exotics are offered in nominal 48" lengths.
To ensure optimal fit next to the stair tread, risers are not distressed, hand-scraped or wire brushed, but will still color blend to the tread/floor.

A Starter Step Kit creates an elegant foundation for your staircase. The kit is prefinished and installation-ready, complete with the stair tread (single or double ended), rounded riser pedestal, cove and base shoe moldings. You can also order just the tread if you prefer.
