Bending stair tread overlay for installation
I am installing new stair tread overlays. I have found the retrotread and another tread overlay that does not have the moulding that the retrotread has. Both are 5/8 inch thick. Problem is my stair case. Stringers have a cap molding that extends into the stair case by 1/2 inch. Builder nailed and glued and removing the cap is proving to damage the riser.
I have cut some prototype treads out of 1/2 inch OSB. Obviously this flexes but helped me understand where to bend tread. Looks like I need to cut kerfs in the center up to about 80% of the tread depth. Don't want to ruin integrity of tread but trying to figure if anyone has done something like this can can share anything?
Do the new treads have wrap over molding on the front?
