Ensure that all wet trades have been fully completed and thoroughly dried out before exposing the solid oak stair treads and risers to the environment.
Solid Oak Stair Cladding Fitting Instructions
Before you start your stair cladding installation please read the instructions fully and contact us if you have any queries.
- Before you start, ensure that your existing steps and riser boards are clean, dry and free from uneven defects. We suggest you thoroughly sand the steps to ensure you get a good sound base for your new Stair Cladding Treads and Riser
- Measure the existing bullnose protrusion from the existing riser board to the furthest point of the bullnose on the existing step. You can then cut packing strips from timber that will push the bottom of the Stair Klad Riser board out and in line with the end of your bullnose. We suggest that these packing strips are screwed into place for stability.
- Starting at the bottom of the staircase, measure and cut two Stair Risers to size and glue them onto the packing strips using Flexible Polymer Adhesive. The top of the riser will be held in place by the Stair Klad Tread.
- Measure the depth and width and cut a Stair Tread to size. Apply a 10mm bead of Flexible Polymer Adhesive to the top of your existing step
- Press the Stair Tread onto the glue firmly ensuring the Stair Riser fits securley into the groove on the bottom of the Stair Tread
- Continue up the stairs fitting riser boards first and the treads.
- If you reach a mid-landing or have large Kite Winder Steps then you will need to use the Stair Extension Boards. Fix the Stair tread and any ajoining riser boards first then cut the extension boards to size, Apply a good amount of polymer adhesive and push the boards together until the area is covered.
Once fitted the treads and risers will need to be finished with a good quality hardwood oil or varnish.
