Stair runners lowes flow down the center of a staircase, allowing the wooden edges of the steps of the stairs and elevators to remain visible. Many stairs have one or more landings and the owners are often confused with how to negotiate the corner of the carpet that occurs on the landing. It will have to be attached on the diagonal, which can be difficult if the homeowner has never used the carpet joining tape before the carpet. Once you joined the carpet, the rest of the installation is quite simple.
Cut carpet strip tack 1 1/2 inches narrower than the width of the carpet runner. Use a knife to cut the strip. Center the tack strip on the first riser tube. Place the strip 1 1/2 inches above the top of the tread and with the tack nails facing down. Nail the tack strip of the riser using the fixing nails in place on the strip. Cut a second tack strip of the same length. Place the band 1 1/2 inches away from the face of the rising column. Center the strip. Place the adhesion nails that the elevator faces. Nail the strip in its place. Repeat this procedure for all stairs, including landing. The landing is treated as a tread.
Measure the depth of the drawing and add 4 inches. Pad carpet cuts the width of the heading band and this measurement. Cut a pad for each tread. Do not cut one for the landing, as it will be much larger. Press the handle of the carpet in the corner between the elevator and the tread, centered on the tack strip. Pull the pad forward so that it catches on the tack strip. Repeat this procedure for each tread.
