    Just grab some nails and a drill to get those squeeks out:

      Has to be screws. Nails will work their way back out again. The screws need to go into the joists...or the stringers on stairs to keep the wood from moving against one another making the squeaking noise.
  • If newly built go back to the contractor and have them make it right! Chances are they will be happy to oblige, everyone wants a happy customer.
