Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Thatwaseasy Easy to install.
This product was a breeze to install compared to using full wood treads where you have to cut off the original stair bullnose (which I have done). These just slide right over the existing bullnose. I was worried that might make the stairs look thick but they look good. I did put tape on the cut line when I ripped the boards to the proper width so I had no problem with any chipping of the surface. The only issue was that I was hoping they would match the Allure Ultra 2 strip red cherry flooring a bit better. The color of the stair tread is only the lightest color of the flooring strip. This is okay but it would be nice if they could finish the step with the color and texture of the Allure Ultra flooring. Also my basement stairs have a landing midway down and it was easy enough to use a piece of thin ply to level up the stair tread to the Allure flooring planks I needed to use to finish the landing. I also used my sons weights to load the treads while the adhesive cured to assure a good bond. Overall a great experience using this product and almost 1200 Sq ft of the Allure Ultra flooring. Our 3 boys are away at college and now the basement looks like a place we can enjoy as adults!
