Rated 5 out of 5Â by Jiggz Easiest stair upgrade for DIy'er!
At $50 a tread + the cost of the riser, it is not the cheapest but it is well worth it and still comes out a lot cheaper than having a contractor do it. The quality is actually above average. The only thing you need to be aware of is the nosing cannot be forced to fit to larger existing nosing. If you do, it will break apart. After removing the existing carpet, the treads are really messed up because of the mud droppings from the wall when it was mudded were not removed but let to dry thus making the tread thicker including the nosing. I ended up sanding most of the existing treads for the cap to fit in. Another thing to note is for closed type stairs, the existing tread may not be squared to the walls, so you will need to measure accordingly. Otherwise, I am very happy with the upgrade and also the wifey, who keeps complaining about vacuuming the stairs and now that is all history. One more thing, for the landing I used wood laminate of the same design and for the risers, I used melamine shelf boards which are not only way cheaper but also easier to clean.
