Stair Tread Kit Ideas
Stair tread kit – stair provide access to entrance hall, deck, sheds and rooms in a home. Building stairs can be a challenge, but it is a relatively simple procedure if you have the necessary tools and materials. There are three basic components in a set of stairs: strings, steps or treads and riser pipes. Stringers are the basic foundation of stairs, consisting of slanted logs carved in them to support the steps and risers. Steps form the upper surfaces of the staircase, and risers are installed directly under the front lip of each tread to deliver a finished look. When you have strings intact, you can install steps and risers with moderate ease.
Measure and cut the riser for the desired use of 16-foot steel tape measure and round saw length. The riser is fixed vertically on the strings and below the step. Set stairs to strings using three 2 1/2 inch trim head trimmed screws on each side. Make sure the riser is in vertical position before fastening with screws. Continue this procedure for all risers.
Measure and cut the steps for the desired use of 16-foot steel tape measure and circular length. The step is the top surface that will be stepped on. Leave about 1/8 inch between boards for each step, and turn each down with the portable drill. Use three 2 2/1 – inch trim head trimmed screws on each step. Trim head trimmed screws are used until the risers are appropriate for the steps as well. You can use wooden kits to cover the screws to give a more professional look. Leave 1½ inch outline on the steps to give them a better look.
