Safest Best Way to Cover Stair Treads

miracleman12July 12, 2012

About a month ago, we removed the old (and nasty) carpet runner on the stairs. Underneath were the original hardwood stair treads. The wood looks pretty good with a little clean up.

My original thought was to just leave the stairs like this. I think they look ok. But there has been two falls on these stairs since. So now I'm going to have to cover them again.

I found carpet at DIY Stair Tread Carpet that appears to glue or stick to the treads. Or I could have an installer come and install the carpet like it was.

Has anyone had any experience with this type of product?
