I removed the ratty old carpet from my basement stairs. the right side looking up is sheetrock and the left is painted, beaded knotty pine. The old carpet covered the cuts in the sheetrock and knotty pine. I think I need the reverse of a carriage board that fits down over the risers and treads. What is it called, please? The the bull noses on the knotty pine side of the stairs have already been notched square to 3/4". I will have to notch the bullnoses on the sheetrock side.
So--what are those kinds of boards called? What dimension lumber is used? How shall I describe the work for an ad on Craigslist or some other forum? About how long should it take to measure,mark, cut and fit? About how much should it cost assuming I supply the materials.
Thanks in advance for any help.
