DIY staircase

Posted by anymac (My Page) on

Hello! We are wanting to get rid of the carpet in our staircase and install wood treads. We haven't had it quoted yet but wanted to get some idea on what it may run to either have a professional do it here in Texas or possibly doing it ourselves.

Currently we have carpet down the middle and on the edge where the spindles are its wood. So we are looking into removing that piece of wood and placing 1 solid piece on the entire step and putting existing spidles back down.

1- Have you had this done in Texas by a professional and what did it cost?

2- Did you do this yourself, what did it cost and home much time did it take? Also what would you have done differently?
