Stair Tread

Completing the stairs with a stair tread is easier compared to using the hardwood planks where the treads are pre-cut already to the width of the stairs. Many manufacturers afford to offer the two sorts of stair treads:

  1. The box stair system – a tread of the stair designed to be used in a stairwell with barrier or walls on both sides.
  2. Open stairwell tread – the stair treads which is designed to be used in an exposed stairwell by which you will perceive the tread as on the side.

When using the stair treads, you could select the tread then, the riser afterwards or the riser then the tread or vice versa. Connecting the tread before the riser, typically generates a more expert appearance staircase, most especially if your paint has a flattering hue for a more studied look.

Here are the additional tips on how to install a hardwood staircase:

1. When mounting the hardwood flooring above the current stairs, score and then adds plywood to every riser so that the current nosing turn flat with the hardwood riser.

2. You may begin at the bottom of the stair, measure the first stair riser, these are what you measure:

• Measure lengthwise at the upper part of a stair riser
• Measure lengthwise at the bottom part of the stair riser
• Measure widthwise amid two stair treads. This is important if you are installing the riser on top of the tread, just take the tread width in deliberation.

3. Measure the staircase with a utility knife and straight edge where you will create the cut base on the measurements. The scoring will help you to recognize where to break and cut over the wear coating level and affords some shield from damaging the hardwood.

4. Score the stair riser using your cutting mark as a director. You may use radial arm saws for cutting because it works well to create a straight cut. First, cut the pre-finished side of the harwood floor.

5. Mount the newly scored riser in the stairs but do not glue it yet. Make certain enough that the riser fits comfortably between the tread and the walls if required.

6. Put on a thin, curvy line glue at the back of the riser fitting it into place on the sub-floor of stair riser. Take good care that no adhesive will fall into the newly mounted stair step.

7. Top nail the riser to the stair sub-floor:

• Set the two nails on either side of the riser close each wall.
• Set also two nails in the center of the riser.

8. Use the straight edge as a guide, cut the stair tread with the use of a utility knife where you will create the cut based.

9. Repeat the measuring, scoring or cutting in the installation process for every stair tread and riser until you reach the topmost part.

10. You may use other molding to transition and nosing to the sort of flooring at the topmost of your stair case. Install other moldings as anticipated.
