Stairs - removing carpet - Wood or Re-Treads?
We're removing the carpet from our stairs as it's dirty and we just can't keep it clean with having a bi-level and it's our main entrance. The top and the bottom of both sets of stairs have or will have laminate flooring. The wood underneath is particle board, so there's not an option to refinishing that. Would you recommend replacing the wood with NEW wood tread and risers? Or placing Re-Treads over the existing treads and placing a new riser on the back? The stringer could give us issues as well - but hoping that we can just paint those and the risers white with brown treads. Any advice out there? Thanks so much!
