Concrete steps

Is there a standard dimension for tread overhang on poured concrete steps? I built the forms with a 1 1/2" thick by 1 1/2" deep overhang and I'm beginning to think that it might be too deep.

The treads are 13 1/2 "X 60".

I don't know if there's a standard or not, but that seems excessive. I think that the top edge would break off rather easily. If it were me, I'd go with a 1/2 to 3/4 inch overhang. That's what I do on all my steps. Good luck.

Pecos - Thanks for the reply and the recommendation. I changed the forms to allow a 3/4" overhang.
