How to frame treads and risers for inside stair run.


I've got 2 stair runs in my townhouse. I'm replacing the laminate on both of them, and it's easier to replace the whole tread and riser than to try and get the laminate off and grind down all of the glue. The stringers are cut with 9 1/2" where the tread sits.

One of the stairs will have carpet, and the other will have new laminate. Do I need to frame a nose on the treads for the laminate? For the carpet? If no nose, should the treads overlap the riser, or vice versa?

I live in Vancouver, BC.

You don't frame a nosing in. You pick a laminate that has a matching nose profile. As for the carpet stairs, its all aesthetics. I personally think carpet looks better with an overhang over the riser. It also allows a hidden place to staple the carpet in place.

The reason I'm asking is because the treads I took out extended past the rise and created a nose. So when I put new treads in, I'll overhang the treads for the carpet, and just square the treads for the laminate.
