a. The stairs should be ready for the installation: cleaned and sanded if necessary and free of sticking out nails. If they are squeaky, make sure to screw-down the noisy parts prior to the installation - it will be much more complicated and costly to fix it after.
b. Check the subfloors of the stairs carefully. If there are nosings installed, remove it. Make sure you have a knowledge in regards to nosing cutting. Make sure to clean (vacuum) the dust and other mess after the nosing cutting procedure.
c. Now its time for the risings and nosings cutting. For both tasks you need to use table or miter saw. Make sure you measure the stairs a few times before cutting. Nail the risings firs with a nail gun, then nail the nosings to your stairs. If any mess accrued, make sure to clean it, because now you are ready to install engineered floors on your stairs.
d. Follow carefully the manufacturer’s guide. Cut the planks of the engineered hardwood carefully with the miter saw. It is will be smart to start from the top stair and go down, so you would not step on the freshly installed stair. Cut all of the planks of the engineered hardwood and then glue them down.
e. Let the glue dry: 8-12 hours, depending on the installation products. Start enjoying your freshly installed engineered wood stairs immediately.
