I have to agree...

We all have to learn this one, sometimes the easy way (advice from those who've learned it already), sometimes the hard way (accepting the job and ending up with unhappy customers and no profit), sometimes the really hard way (repeating #2 over and over).

I got lucky and learned it the really easy way, working for a guy who kept doing #3 without learning from the experience :D

Bottom line, the only way to give the customer what they want is to replace the stair treads with the same species and finish as the floor. It will match now, and it will age the same as the floor. Next best is to convince them that they want something else - like the painted tread that Bill suggested.
