Do Over

We removed the unsafe carpet on the basement stairs and replaced it with rubber stair treads.

Bob getting ready to put down the first two treads after the carpet was removed and the steps painted white. 

A third of the way done.

Last three steps to do.

Treads done. Next, the wooden wall skirts.

All done.

I haven't ever seen that system for stairs over here - but it looks really good, and no doubt much safer.

It is so easy to slip on stairs as one gets older, I've found.

Ditto what the Blue Witch said. I like what I'm seeing and will remember it IF we ever finish our basement. Cool to see it happen step-by-step, so to speak. ;-)

BW- it is actually a commercial product and you usually see in buildings and schools, which means it should last a long time.

Ally- If you do put it in I think you will like it. It looks good, it feels good, and it is easy to clean. One thing I forgot to point out is that my husband also cut and painted the wall skirt. We took a small piece of the rubber stair (you cut the treads to fit) over to Home Depot and they matched the color perfectly. It finished off the steps nicely.
