When we bought a small farm there was a small house which had laminate engineered flooring and the staircase had laminate flooring on the staircase ! The laminate was creaky and the treads too short front to back, so I demo’ed them and replaced the treads with 1” thicj\k prefinished teak treads. Because of the expense, I didn’t use teak for the risers; instead, I spray painted the old laminate risers with Kryon Fusion paint (adheres well to plastic) and reinstalled them-my wife’s idea.
Now we no longer worry about people slippingand falling, and improved the looks as well.

Good looking stairs. I have to redo a set of stair stringers in my in-laws house tomorrow. They were too steep for the aging users. Hope mine can look half this good. BTKS

I understand completely !

Of course, nothing in an existing staircase skeleton is square, so each and every finish piece has to be cut differently.
