Replacing Carpet on Stairs with Hardwood Treads


I've gotten estimates on having my stairs redone from carpet to hardwood and considering the high cost of having it professionally done, I'm thinking about trying it myself. I have no experience and not a clue where to begin, but had a friend tell me that I should be able to do this with a little bit of reading and some instruction from someome who does. Any advice?

Replacing Carpet on Stairs with Hardwood Treads


Post pictures of the stairs and let us know how they are built---

Homeowners have done this job many times.

If you don't own any tools or have any woodworking experience--this job will not be cheap.

Replacing Carpet on Stairs with Hardwood Treads


Thanks for being so prompt in your response. I am not currently at home, but when I return toward the end of the week, I will take a picture of the steps and post it. I have some tools, and I'm limited in woodworking experience, but I'm willing to attempt this project with some guidance. I will post that pic in a few days. Thanks, again for the info.
