You may also opt to use the same engineered wood you used on the floor to refresh a staircase. Start by adding a layer of plywood over the top of each existing riser so the riser is now flush with the front edge of the existing tread. As you cover the stairs with engineered wood, use the same adhesive that you used on the floor to secure the pieces. When you're ready to install the pieces, start with the bottom step and install the riser first, then the nose on the step above, and finally the tread.
You may also discover that your stairs need "returns." These are attached to the side of the exposed tread, giving it a finished appearance. Wood replacement treads are available that can be secured directly over the existing "subfloor" treads and risers.
Select a wood type for the new treads and risers that will complement flooring and moldings in the rooms the stairs adjoin. To determine whether you need a right-hand return or a left-hand return, stand at the bottom of the stairs and look up.
The nose on the replacement tread is 1 inch thick to retain the illusion of a standard tread.
