They look a bit rough (worn), are you going to sand and stain them for the long term?

Yes, its a laminate. Hardwood just didn't make since. Laminate is easier to install, waterproof and this particular brand comes with a lifetime warranty.

Well, I thought the trimming was going to be easy. Apparently, when you install stairs for carpet they are already rounded off at the nose. To install laminate/hardwood floors that nose has to be cut off. Not that its a big deal, just wasn't something I was planning lol.

I was told that professional installers from wouldn't put hardwood floors on stairs made for carpet.   I didn't know why.  Interested in your results.

We are having ours stained. We were told it was dependent on the base and lucked out.

When I did my reno, under the carpet on the stairs was square board.  Took a sawzall and cut the excess nose off to square it all off.  Then put stainable oak steps and risers over the old boards.  Huge pain in the ass getting all the cuts right on the stairs but came out great.

If you’re cutting stair boards get the stair measurement tool cause the cuts may not be square. I would not have been able to cut mine without it. 


Solid pro tip right there!
