Nothing wrong with that!

Awesome video - thanks Neal!

Is the forward cant/angle he put on the risers a standard thing to do?

One time we put the slope on concrete stairs. I think that was common for carpet back in the day. Not sure what day that was.
He left out some glue and the blocks under the front of the treads.

Re: Stair Help


Just my opinion...

I would not back cut the risers.

It maybe okay going up, but I would worry about going down.

The person living there could/would adapt, but what about company.?

It is just like an extra long nose, people only think it adds something.

Re: Stair Help


Personally, I have only seen the cutback layout on Concrete stairs.
Wood stairs are usually cut square and the nosing added by using a wider tread material.
