Hardwood stair tread trim or part of tread?


We are expecting our 1st baby and I added carpet stair treads to reduce slipping. There is a little lip on the stair tread, can I remove? gf wants carpet but if I get rid of the raised lip so tread it's flat might be OK.

Nice looking dogs.

By lip, do you mean at the edge of the tread? If so, no, you can't remove them. Nor do you want to.

I believe you want to do something like this? You use the carpet rod to hold the bottom snug and the top just gets nailed to the stair tread

Even with all carpet they will leave the bullnose on the tread.

Right but you will still feel it and be a potential problem I would think? Only option is to redo all stairs? Or do carpet over with nose?

Carpet over the nose as in the pics....

And you have to keep the tread nose....

Believe me, you don't want to take them off

Stairs have been that way for hundreds of years.Has your GF never used stairs before? Don't mean to be a dick,but?
The nosing can be cut off and some is glued on to the tread as a separate piece.
By taking it off your stairs may not conform to your local building code.

I'm not worried about the nose that hangs over risers, it's the bump,/raise that's under the carpeted stair tread. Not all stairs have that.... Right where the pits paw is you can see the difference in carpet

I bet Kwickfish would think his Stair Code would get so much attention so soon...

Here is the code snippet...

Oh....you mean the 1/4 round put in at the base of the riser to hide the gap in the wood when it was put in?

The same 1/4" round that is used to hide sloppy work?

Yes, you can remove it...especially if you do carpet runners.

All I see is the carpet lifting up on that one side.

I'm guessing the carpet pads were glued down?

Yes, you can remove....but I think you're going to have a lot of glue to remove.

No I used velcro, that's the Difference in height from the Bull nose to tread and I used the carpet to cover. Is that normal?
