Sizing and Fitting

Just be sure you really think about logistics before ordering your stair nosing, so that you can ensure it’s actually going to fit on your stairwell. That means you have to ensure they are the exact size that you need for installing to each stair, otherwise they are not going to fit correctly.  What’s more, you want to be sure that you have the right type of stair nosing for how many stairs you have as well.  Remember to get enough to cover the surface of each stair, but also to ensure you have a spare incase a stair gets damaged or for if you actually make a mistake.  That way you always have a quick replacement.
