Q:How do I install this onto a existing stair case? After removing the carpet, the stairs have rounded noses that are about 3/4 inch tall and 1 1/4 deep. The bamboo strand stair nose doesn't cover the existing stair nose.
A:Generally you would cut off the existing overlapping stair nose and then install laminate nosing and flooring. However, laminate flooring and nosing isn't a great idea for stairs, fine for one or two steps but we caution the use of it on an entire staircase. People do it but it can be unsafe. Check your local building codes. Hardwood flooring and nosing works great, when laminate IS used you must fully glue with 100% urethane adhesive without the use of padding, padding attached laminate must have paddling scraped off.
