can a staircase tread be changed?

Postby colourpixie » Wed Sep 29, 2010 8:50 am

I've just bought a house and the staircase is steep, the tread is extremely shallow, it doesn't even fit my foot (a UK size 3), can the treads be removed and deeper ones be fitted. hope someone can answer this as not sure it is even possible.

"can the treads be removed and deeper ones be fitted" NO but you could fit a wider tread ontop of the existing ones.
