Converting wood stairs to carpet
We're trying to get an idea of what this would take. Considering purchasing a house but need some modifications.
These stairs are wood with metal at the corners, and then this metal railing. We'd want them carpeted with potentially a different railing on there. Do you have to remove the whole railing or just the cap piece on the vertical post in order to do the flooring work?
Also, would you remove surface wood or just carpet over it? Is it very expensive to resurface stairs?
thanks for any advice!
