Stringer Problems
Termites damage in parents ranch.Had to replace steps.House 55 yrs old.Father had paneled over stringers and put a panel between each step to hide storage area under steps.Handy man did bad job.Main problem that existing lumber for stringers only 2 inches wide and am told it is no longer available at 2 and a half.When I put old step in see there is about a half inch difference between old and new steps.Panel won't fit.Do I add one inch to one existing stringer or can I find a new 3 inch wide piece custom made to make it as it was before? Going crazy on this...everyone telling me different stories...and wildly different alot of dishonesty.... Can this be solved....??? jim
