    Default Maximum stair tread overhang

    Hi everyone. I have just about finished my deck and have to concrete in a set of gal 3 step stringers. I have some hardwood seasoned lintels (250x45mm) that I have removed from another part of the house I will be using for treads. My question is what is the maximum allowed tread overhang past the stringer? I have looked at the span tables and plan on spacing the stringers 1200 apart. The opening between my posts on the deck is ~2m so I want the stairs as wide as possible.
    Cheers

    400 is a bit much to cantilever IMO. You can buy single stringers too. You don't have to buy them in pairs.

    Default Maximum stair tread overhang

    Hi ringtail. I acquired them at a garage sale and had them modified by a mate who is a boilermaker so buying another one is going to be difficult. I was thinking 300 overhang which I have seen on another set of stairs but wasn't sure if it was legal.

    300 is about the limit but you will have to bolt right through the tread instead of just fixing from underneath. Has your mate modified the rise ? They are normally 175 mm so getting another single is easy as they are all 175 mm unless custom made. In fact, I have a pair of 3 tread stringers downstairs. Well, not really a pair but two singles. If you're in Brisbane I can sell you one cheap

    Thanks ringtail. I had to concrete the stringers in today so went ahead and put them in at 1200. I will cut the treads 1800 which will be fine for the space in the balustrade. Are 10mm cupheads enough or are 12mm required? Here's a photo of the project thus far.. Cheers

    The bar fridge was definitely top priority! The tank is pretty big 24,000 gallon. They do make them a lot bigger though! Any recommendations on a decking oil for the ironbark? I was looking at Feast & Watson "wet look" but I know a lot of people on here like ultra deck or spa n deck oils.

    I've given up on all of them. In full QLD sun/weather exposure they are all rubbish. Although as your deck is covered you will get a good run out of anything you choose. I've used aquadeck on my 3 covered decks at home at I haven't looked at recoating in 5 years. The pooldeck which is completely open is now getting it's third different coating in 2 years. Un tinted cutek and will be left to go grey.

    Cabots is the only thing I've found to work in the QLD sun.

    You must miss Vienna.

    As for oil, I prefer cold pressed olive oil

    Default Maximum stair tread overhang

    After going through your thread ringtail I think I will give an oil based product a go as it is seems to be the easiest to clean and recoat and I should get decent life as its undercover. I have noticed a lot of people online having issues with the drying time of the cabot's natural. Is this simply due to the fact it's oil based or more a cabot's issue? I can't afford to wait more then a couple of days to dry.
    Cheers

    Sikkens worked and still looks ok.

    Most others failed.

    I never had an issue with the drying time. All oil based product takes time for the solvent to evaporate. Then again, all wayer based products take time to "harden up" too. I would definitely go oil based as you stand a better chance of an easier maintenance regime IMO.

    Sikkens was the worst out of any finish I've used on any deck. And at 3 times the price of anything else on the market I advise anyone that will listen against using it. I hear Marc loves it though.
