Staircases
Cut the stair nosing to the desired length and attach to the sub floor as per manufacturer’s instructions.
Tread Flush or Even with Riser
The riser must be installed before the nosing is fit into place. If installing from a floating floor, follow the above instructions. When installing on a stair tread, the nosing will be installed after the tread and riser are glued into
place.

Tread with an Extended Round Edge Nosing
Cut off the rounded portion of the extended nosing. Do not cut off the entire extended nosing. Glue a narrow strip of laminate on the edge of the squared nosing to finish the exposed edge of the tread. Install the tread and the riser
and finish the edge with a stair nosing.

Tread with an Extended Square Edge Nosing
On this style of tread, simply cut a narrow strip of laminate and glue it on the edge of the existing tread. Install the tread and the riser and finish the edge with a stair nosing.

Laminate on Stair Treads and Risers
Cut the laminate planks net from side to side, no expansion space is necessary. Remember that the depth of the laminate tread material will be cut to accommodate the width of the laminate nosing which overlaps either a riser of laminate or the piece of laminate which is glued to the edge of the step. One plank of laminate will finish most risers; if two planks are needed to accommodate the depth of the tread, position the joint close to the riser.

After dry fitting the treads and risers, start with the bottom riser an install each step until the last top riser is installed. Start with the top riser and install each step until the last bottom riser is installed. Use a premium urethane adhesive to adhere the treads and risers. Install quarter round where the tread meets the riser if needed. Allow the recommended amount of time for the adhesive to fully set up before using the stairs. A stair application is the ONLY time that a laminate floor is glued directly to a substrate. Laminate flooring must be installed as a floating
floor for a step down and all other applications.
