I am trying to replace my carpet stairs with wood stairs. I have searched everywhere and cannot find my problem answered.
The stringers on my stairs have an 11" run (instead of what I surmise should be 10"). The treads I just purchased are a standard 11". How will I get the stairnose to hang over the front of the riser?
If I pull the tread forward, and leave a 1" gap behind it, I can build that out on the next stair by padding the riser with 1" board. However, the problem is cumulative... the next stair will need to be built out 2", then 3"....
Is there another answer? I would really appreciate any advice.
