    Q:In addition to using shims or paint paddles to level uneven treads, would you recommend using any type of compound such as wood filler or self-leveler concrete for this job? Do you foresee any issues when later gluing planks with adhesive on top of it?

      Q:How do you recommend leveling the surface of uneven treads? What material would you use for that job?

      Answer This Question

      A:  Below is the recommendation of our National Installation Manager. "They will need to use some sort of shim, paint paddle etc. and place in the "dip" to firm it up and add some extra adhesive to help fill the voids. With just glue you will still get some deflection which can impact the glue." Best of luck with your stair renewal project.

        Q:How flat are treads expected to be? I have some wood treads that are a bit sink in the middle reaching up to 4mm deep. I'd like to know if it is okay to fill the gap with polyurethane construction adhesive or it is recommended to flatten those out first.

          Q:This is the THIRD time I’ve asked this question. Maybe the third time’s a charm and you will actually answer me if you would like me to BUY your product. My existing stair treads measure between 1.07” & 1.1”. Should I use type 1 or type 2 Cap a Tread?

            Q:I have a customer that would like to install these Cap A Treads and then install a carpet runner over them. Is this ok or would it void the warranty?

            A:  Scott, Thank you for your interest in Zamma Cap-A-Tread Kits. If cap-a-treads are not installed as indicated or any changes made, including adding carpet, it would void the warranty. Best of luck with your project.

              Q:Hello. What product do I use for the step on a landing as well as the top step - can I attach the planks directly to this? Thanks

              Answer This Question

              A:  Alyssa, Than you for your interest in Zamma Cap-A-Treads. You may use a cap-a-tread both at a landing and top of the stairs. You will need to cut the bullnose off to a minimum of 4", then use the Wicker 4-in-1 molding between the cap-a-tread and the flooring. Your other option is to use the Wicker stair nose by Performance Accessories.

                A:  Robin, Thank you for your interest in Zamma Cap-A-Treads. The cap-a-treads are 5/16" thick, and are not designed to interlock with the flooring. You will need to use a transition piece between the cap-a-tread and the flooring. Best of luck with your stair project.
