Who makes cap a tread?
Keeping this in consideration, what is a false tread?

Subsequently, question is, what goes first riser or tread? 4 Answers. The riser is installed first for the reason that you want a nice tight fit along the top of the riser to the tread above it. An experienced carpenter will install the risers and treads from the top of the stairs down so that they can always be fitting the next riser against the bottom of the previous tread.
In respect to this, can you put new stair treads over old treads?
Retro-fitting stair treads is the simplest solution for a DIY'er intent on installing hardwood treads over an existing flight of stairs. High-quality prefinished stair treads are made of solid edge-glued wood—not a veneered or engineered material—and can be used to “cap” or reface an existing tread.
