Customer Questions & Answers

How do you make a finished outside edge using HL16SN Stair Nose moulding?

The SN moulding outside edge is not finished. I have stairs that are not enclosed on one side, which is common. Do I just cut two pieces of moulding at 45* angles and fill in with flooring. Does the Stair Nose butt to the flooring or does it lap over like a threshold. If it butts, then you have to use glue......will this hold up on a stairway over time? does Home legend make solid, one-piece stair treads....if not, I wish they did.

Our recommendation would be to stain the outside edge of the stair nose so it can blend in with the flooring. The Minwax® brand of stains is a good place to start your search for a matching stain. This stair nose butts up to the flooring and has to be glued together (can be subsequently reinforced with brad nails afterward). We do not make solid, one-piece stair treads; the stair noses and stair treads (aka the flooring planks) are separate pieces.

Oak Mocha 5/8 in. Thick x 3-1/2 in. Wide x 78 in. Length Hardwood Stair Nose Molding is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Laminate stair nose - not hardwood Although the title says "Hardwood", the specifications identify it as laminate, which is a photographic sheet over a composite material. If you want an inexpensive stair nose, then is is an OK product. I paid $17.88 for a 78" piece, which provide two 36" pieces. One draw back is if you ever drop something pointed or heavy on it, it's difficult to repair. The other problem, at least for me, was that the color was too dark to match up with my medium brown oak flooring. I returned the product and went with a local company that provided red oak stair nose at $2.95 a foot, which comes out to around $18 for a six foot piece. If you're decent at wood working, then the solid oak is the best way to go. I had to trim the tread area from 3/4" to 9/16", for my purposes, cut it an inch narrower and then cut the grove to fit the lip of my oak flooring. One good part was that I was able to stain the oak to match the floor.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not actually hardwoods!!! I ordered these to have installed with my hardwoods and the description says they are hardwoods. They arrived they a week after they were "shipped" and looked nice. They were a little more red in color than expected, but ended up going well with the color of my hardwood flooring. When my installer came by, he looked at them and told me they were laminates, not hardwoods! I was peeved that I paid the hardwood price for laminates, and that they weren't really what I had purchase. I ended up having to use them, since it took 2 weeks to even get them in, and I couldn't reschedule the installation. They look pretty good for laminates, and I'm the only one that know's they're not hardwood.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not the best I ordered seven (7) pieces, and out of the 7, 3 had pretty significant damaged spots on the surface. I decided to go ahead and keep them because the contractors were already on site to complete the job and it would have delayed my completion date even longer had I taken them back. The finished stair noses in gunstock are only available online which means I would have had to re-order and wait additional time for delivery, not knowing if the next ones would be damaged as well. I bought and used one of the wood correction markers to try and cover the damaged areas. It helped but still noticeable to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HomeLegend My only issue with the product is that some of the boxes have multiple smaller or shorter planks.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Stair Nose Molding Molding was not real wood and had to return. It looked ok but need Red Oak stained in Gunstock.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Color does not match. Color does not match the gunstock oak flooring. Although the shape and size look good, the color is very different and looks like it belongs elsewhere.
