Is this price only for one step ?

Asked by Lesvy March 20, 2021
1
Answer

The price is for each piece. So not sure how wide your steps are, but generally one piece covers one step. Its expensive....about $47 per piece. They get you there. Now keep in mind, you can TRY to use the vinyl plank on the steps, but I'm fairly certain that it won't be warrantied as the overlay is. It's a necessary evil to buy this stuff for stairs. Also, it usually takes 7 to 10 days when you order it, so you need to order in advance. You can return what you dont use if you order too much, so order a couple extra pieces.

Can I install a carpet runner over Cap A Treads?

Asked by Willy March 4, 2021
2
Answers

Willy, We do not recommend installing a carpet runner over the Cap A Treads. If you use any adhesive or nail the runner to the Cap A Tread, it will void the warranty. Linda

Do you have recommended adhesive to use?

Loctite PL Premium Polyurethane Construction Adhesive 3X stronger, or any quality Polyurethane based construction adhesive. Check Youtube for various strength test videos.

Answer

No, the underside of Cap A Tread is a bare wood product. I submerged a scrap pf Cap A Tread in water for 2 days and saw no ill effects. Still, I would back-prime the treads if they were to be installed jn a wet location.

Can these be installed over particle board treads? If so what adhesive would be best?

Asked by Kat January 13, 2021
1
Answer

Yes, Cap A Tread is compatible with particle board substrate. Use Liquid Nails or other Urethane construction adhesive.

How

Asked by jessica January 5, 2021

Answer

I'm not aware of any good easy solution to this issue. One possibility would be to close the end with a trim board running up the side of the stairway. Another would be to use Life Lock vinyl planks rather than Cap-A-Tread. Use Zamma stair nose molding on the front and side(s) of the step. IMHO Cap-A-Tread would be the better choice.

Can Cap A Tread be installed on stairs with zero nosing/overhang? If so, should the Standard or ...

Asked by Brian November 23, 2020

Answer

Yes, Cap A Tread of either type works fine with no existing overhang. Cap A Tread will add about an inch of overhang for a more attractive staircase.

Asked by REfromSE November 23, 2020

Answer

Type 2 will cover the edge of 1 1/2" treads. It will NOT cover the bottom side of tread protruding beyond the riser. If the bottom is visible, painting might be a solution.

I don't know of a better solution than the Left Return. A top-tread bullnose would work, but no easier, and less professional looking.

We specifically picked Sterling Oak flooring from Home Depot because it was available in matching Cap A Tread steps. We are very happy with that decision. It's nice to have our stairs match our flooring. The treads seems durable and the stairs themselves, which originally had carpet on them, now feel quite sturdy and quiet. The top stair nose molding was matched to the treads as the pictures show. As soon as the installers left I went and removed any excess glue residue from the treads and risers using acetone which did a good job and did not damage the stairs. Later I used white painters caulk to hide the gaps in both the sides of the risers and where the bottom of the risers meet the treads. I kept water and sponges close by to immediately remove any excess. Overall very pleased with the product.

This is not a review of the quality of the product but rather the color as it relates to the other products offered by Home Depot. We purchased this product as it is considered to be the “closest match” to the luxury vinyl plank flooring options also offered by Home Depot. It is the only product Home Depot carries or recommends to match their Life Proof Henlopen Grey Oak flooring. However, they are not an exact match and are actually specifically not recommended by the manufacturer of the LVP flooring. Also of note, the flooring, stair treads and molding pieces are made by three different companies so none of them exactly match each other. For our project, this was discovered too late as the stair treads came in much later than the flooring so we had already installed all of the flooring by the time the stair treads came in and were left with few options. Had we known they would not match and that there was no other option that did match, we would not have ordered either product. We ended up having to replace all of the stair treads with real oak flooring and then have them stained to match the flooring. This added thousands of dollars to the cost of the job and delayed the project’s completion dramatically. This obviously frustrated our client who selected this product specifically so they could save time and money. As you can see in the picture attached, while the colors are close and may be an okay match for some, if you/your customers are looking for an exact match to the LVP flooring offered at Home Depot, these treads are not a good solution. I would recommend staying away from this product as well as the LVP flooring on jobs that require both flooring and stair treads as no better solution is available. Home Depot - why carry a product that the flooring manufacturer specifically does not recommend go with their product and not have any other option for your customers?

results were amazing
Used sterling oak caps for my stairs to go over 100 yr old maple in very rough shape. Very easy to cut to size needed. Once glued down ensure you dont walk much on them for a few hours cause the tread slid with adheasive from the tread

Easy to install
We are so happy with the product it was fast and easy to install as long as you have all the tools necessary.

If you want to break your neck buy these!
I’ve had these cap a treads for 6 months now and today I’ve fallen down the stairs once again! These things are as slick as ice when wearing socks! All 5 of us have fallen down the steps now so they’re being ripped up and replaced with something safer.

Easy install
These stair treads are very easy to install and great quality. Our new staircases are now matching color with our new sterling oak vinyl floor perfectly.

This was NOT what was delivered.
I received a piece that was only 2 inches deep. I had to add my floor vinyl to complete the step and the depth didn't match up. Had to complete project to sell home, and now I have to discount cost for buyer. Called and they couldn't help me get something in on time.
