Pavers over railroad ties
I currently have some railroad ties as stairs leading up to a walk way on the front of my house (roughly 9 steps). When these get wet they are extremely slippery. I would like to remove them and put in some paver stairs.
A couple people mentioned I should build on top of the railroad ties and not remove them, which I'm a little skeptical of doing. If I leave the railroad ties down, is it possible to place pavers on top of them? I'm concerned the tred and risers will get thrown off if I do this, especially leading up to the walk way. Would pavers even hold properly over the railroad ties? The railroad ties do seem pretty settled.
Part of me would like to rip them out completely and just put in pavers. Any ideas or thoughts?
