    LVP Stair Vertical Tread joints or not?

    Thanks guys. There doesn't seem to be a reason to add seams so going to go with the way I already went.... Thanks.

    LVP Stair Vertical Tread joints or not?

    It looks fine to me but part of me always wants to make sure it's done the correct way so I seek pro advice. I'm not sure if it would look better with some vertical seams added. I would have to redo some to know for sure I guess... Mark I'm not sure if you are saying you would have done it...

    LVP Stair Vertical Tread joints or not?

    I have finally cut all my stair treads and stair nose moldings and placed ready for glue. Because the stairnose leaves a horizontal joint where it meets the tread I opted to just go with one piece treads. I am wondering if I should still have maintained the vertical joint pattern on the stair...

    How to properly wrap LVP Stair nose?

    Thanks CJ. I spoke with manufacturer and they don't feel I should be removing the cork. They mention a little extra glue under nosing and it will be level and the PL adhesive sticks better to the cork... I am torn as I did remove the cork on a sample and it definitely fits better. The cork...

    How to properly wrap LVP Stair nose?

    Yes, the lvp has a cork backing. Are you saying this has to be removed off of all stair treads to properly use the molding? This is the molding for this LVP so I would be surprised if this is the case. Or is this normal for LVP on stairs? Thanks.

    How to properly wrap LVP Stair nose?

    Im not sure the best way to finish these stair edges with this bull nose. I thought I would just cut 45's on them and wrap around stair edge but now that I have them they dont seem to sit flush butting up to edge of the main tread piece so maybe this not what is meant when I hear to wrap it...

    Ideas on finishing Stair edge...

    Perfect. Sounds like a plan. Thanks for all the helpful input. I probably won't get to the stairs for a few weeks but hopefully I'm done with all the questions...😉

    Ideas on finishing Stair edge...

    I'm familiar with stair gauge. Are you saying I could put these on top of existing treads and risers? I don't think I can remove the treads. If so, would they be glued or screwed or both? Thanks.

    Ideas on finishing Stair edge...

    Thanks Mark. My concern with cutting off the nosing is the treads are already too narrow and slant down 1/4 inch so I want to try and rectify this a bit in the process. Tom, very nice. I would be more than happy if my finished product looked as good.

    Ideas on finishing Stair edge...

    Wow, lots of valuable feedback. I have already ordered the stair nosing which will only cover 18mm (approx 3/4") the front of the tread so yes have also been wondering what I will do there. This gives me lots of possible ideas. I like the idea of the new wood treads and risers but I have...

    Ideas on finishing Stair edge...

    I am adding LVP to my basement stairs but I'm not sure what to do to finish the open side edges. See pic of stairs. The railing will be on the wall side...just not sure how to finish the LVP edges on the open side of the stairs. Thanks for your thoughts.

    Sliding Door threshold Finishing

    Thanks for the feedback guys. I do have matching stair nose coming for the stairs so I will be able to try both methods and see which looks best (or should I say which the wife prefers...😀).

    Sliding Door threshold Finishing

    I am preparing to lay LVP in my basement. I have Dricore subfloor down and ready to get started on floor. We have a sliding door basement walkout (see pic). I am wondering the best way to finish this threshold with the LVP? Is there a recommended approach in regards to using a proper moulding...

    LVP on Stairs... In preparation...

    Thanks. This is helpful. I was thinking along similar lines in regards to fixing the slant. I am also concerned about the depth, though. I have read that I also have to cut off the the front of the step to make flush in preparation for the LVP bull nose which will remove another inch or so...

    LVP on Stairs... In preparation...

    I am putting down 8mm thick, cork backed Fuzion LVP in my basement. I also want to finish the stairs. I am looking for advice on what should be done with these stairs prior to LVP. The stairs are 4 down to a landing, turn right and down another 5 or so with small landing at bottom. The...
