That's not my suggestion.
Rhinoliner?

Stair Fix


a truck bed liner? really?You mean like the rhino stuff that you spray. I would put either 5/4 x 10 or 1x10 syp alongside the wall and the stairs and shim the skirt tight to the stairs. However if the treads and risers are cut to different lengths and are not cut square the skirts will never butt up tight. If your not going to poly the stairs you can just fill in the gaps with caulking or something. A carpet would definitely cover any gaps.

Before I continue, Thanks for all the comments/suggestions/help.

Yes to the spray on truck bed liner. It makes perfect sense given the area. Its durable, fluid proof and provides great traction.

Millertyme; what is syp?
