How to install laminate on stairs

Just go slow. Make all your cuts nice a straight. Before you even begin with this project you should ask yourself. Do you have little kids running around wearing just socks? If so, you may not want to install laminate on your stairs. No doubt about it looks nice as can be. But is very slippery, to say the least.

OK, for the big bucks. The stair nosing that I used in this video was not cheap at all. When you go to buy the laminate floor of your choice ask them if they have “matching” stair nosing. Very important, you’ll be surprised by how many manufacturers don’t.

  3. I found you on You tube and was really stoke to see your website at the end of the video, you really don't understand how much your video helps. I alot of DIY projects for my home since the contractors never finished there job and this stair project I just couldn't figure it out. But with your video, I totally get it now. MAHALO NUI! that means thank you VERY MUCH! I can now start on this project and hopefully get it off my task list.

  4. Most will paint the risers however you could install the laminate on the riser. If you are make sure you do that first.

  5. Where ever you bought the flooring from should have it and the color that matches. How much ? well it's not cheap but make sure you do use a real wood for this. Average stair is like 36" wide.

  6. No not really, however just make sure that you don't have nails or staples sticking up and you're good to go.

  7. where do you get this stair nose and about how much is it? also, how long is a average stair? thanks! these are great videos!

  8. Great video, I wasn't sure how I was going to do the nosing on the stairs. So do I only do the tread and not the riser? I haven't taken the carpet off the stairs yet so I don't know what the wood looks like underneath the carpet. Can I also put laminate on the riser, or is it standard practice to only do the tread? Thanks!
