Stairs to my finish basement are covered with nasty carpet. I'd like to get
rid of the carpet and use something else-- maybe just rubber treads over
I took a peak by pulling the bottom, and the current carpet is only stapled
down hence removal will be easy.
Unfortunately it looks like somebody used carpet adhesive at some point as
their is lots of black foam stuck to the wood stair and risers.
Assuming I'm able to scrape it off, I'm looking for ideas on what to do. I
was possibly thinking about covering the stairs with wood laminate or vinyl
flooring, and then using some rubber grips. Or I was considering just
painting the stairs and putting bigger rubber treads.
Ideas appreciated. Definitely looking for something DIY.
