replacing carpet with bellawood in multilevel condo


[IMG]/Users/dianestefanick/Pictures/iPhoto Library/Modified/2010/Roll 215/CRW_5490_2.jpg[/IMG]I want to replace carpeting with bellawood in a multilevel detached condo.
The top of the stringer is flush with the subfloor.

How do I put the nosing on with 1"+ stringer in both sides?

Bella wood from Lumber Liquidators? That is not a very good product.

Your opinion on my choice of product was not solicited. Hopefully someone can give me direction on my question.

that kind of attitude is not going to benefit your purpose... it just so happens, the people you are expecting advice from "kinda" know their s..t.... we do this for a living... he was just expressing an oppinion on the subject...
and to think i was SO ready to type the answer to your problem before i saw you second post.....

For my first post and looking for an answer, to be honest I was surprised that was all he had to say without any suggestions or direction. So yes, I responded defensively excuse me. I most certainly can take constructive criticism but right out of the gate like that was NOT what I was expecting. Money is an object and I thought that was a good choice. As a SWF do it yourselfer all I wanted was help. This is not the welcome and lack of encouragement I expected!

you can make bella wood work. you question is kinda hard to answer. as an installer.i would miter all my edges and glue and brad nail them together. you will need to get rid of the over hang on the steps.there may be an easier way, thats just how i would do it.good luck. the first reply was trying to be helpful hoping to make sure you know what you buying.

ok, i've tried to picture it the best i could.... the stair nosing has a lip that "grips" onto the raiser... you need to trim that near the wall, so it can fit the stringer... i imagine you're gonna paint the stringer, right?
just trim the lower part of the overhang.. if your cut is not going to be perfect, you can use caulking... make sure you use both glue and nails to install the nosing...

I don't get it... what edges are you gonna miter?
I agree with the part about the subflooring needing to be cut flush with the raiser... it's a must!
What are you gonna do about the steps/raisers? keep carpet? go with wood? if wood, what kind?

This is why I posted what I did. I was hoping you hadn't already bought it.
