I'm working on refinishing our basement and the previous owner did not
leave a consistent (or continuous) space between the stairs and the
drywall for the skirt to fit. It appears I have only two options: make
the space or notch the skirt. The latter would appear (to me) to be a
more difficult task and mistakes would cost roughly $50 a crack (price
for a new skirt). The first option could be done two ways: remove each
step, trim off the length, & re-install; or somehow cut them in place.
Not real sure there is a way to cut them in place, but a toe-kick saw
looked somewhat promising. Has anyone encountered this problem before
and may have some advice, tips, etc?
Thanks in advance...
