We would put fitting oak stair cladding in the “Competent DIY’er” category. As long as you can measure, mark and use a saw accurately then the job of converting your exiting staircase into a solid oak looking stair is pretty simple.
Follow these simple Oak Stair Klad Fitting Instructions to change the look of your staircase.
- Before you start, ensure that all the existing steps and risers are clean, dry and clear of any uneven surface defects. We recommend that you sand the treads and risers using an electric sander to give a sound base for your new stair treads and risers.
- Measure how far the existing bullnose on the end of your step sticks out from the riser board. Measure from the face of the riser board to the out most part of your existing tread. Cut some packing strips and secure them to the bottom of your existing riser with suitable wood screws.
