    Depending on your skill level, you probably can... If you are replacing the carpet... better to have a professional do it... it is a major fall hazard if it is not done correctly. If you want to replace the carpet with wood stair treads... measure twice or 3 times... cut once... use a good construction adhesive and the correct screws or nails.... Pinterest.com or DIYnetwork.com or HGTV.com will have instructions on HOW to do it.

    I think it would be a job for a professional. I have an open staircase going to my second floor and I watched the guys re-carpet them. It was quite a job.

      I did not clarify, sorry, I’m definitely wanting to remove the carpet and do something different. I’m thinking even with that, I probably need a professional. Thank you for taking the time to answer!
