The benefits of vinyl stair treads

Stairs have come a long way from their first inception as tree trunks lashed together. Next were stone steps, and the development in the 1800s, when the stairs became the ones that one is familiar with today. Stair treads can have a variety of finishes. Sometimes, these finished can be worn down, making them unsightly. Vinyl stair treads have some advantages. This article details out the benefits of vinyl stair treads.

Fresh look

Vinyl stair treads can give a new face lift to the stair treads. The stair treads can come in a variety of patterns and colours that allow you a wide range from which to choose. Thanks to the variety of choice, you will be able to match the appearance of the treads with the decor of the rest of the house as well as the stairs. The stair treads can be quite useful in an apartment building. They can help to economise your money by saving you the time and expense of refinishing the stair treads.

Traction

Vinyl stair coverings will help to provide an important safety consideration: traction. When the treads are worn, they can be slippery which could be quite dangerous, especially in an apartment building. The vinyl stair treads are not slippery which makes them a welcome addition. Vinyl stair treads have a ribbed surface which provides the welcome traction with a smooth step lacks. They can also be useful for trapping dirt from shoes, preventing them from being tracked around the rest of the house.

Installation and care

The vinyl stair treads require adhesive for installation. Clean the stair treads thoroughly before applying the adhesive, then lay them down. The stair treads can come in various weights and can be used for areas of high traffic. If the stairway is dark, then rubber stair treads with a light catching strip embedded in them will help to indicate the edge of the stair. Strips that are abrasive can be added to the stair treads to make them safer. The stair treads can be easily cleaned and washed with soap and water. The vinyl stair treads can be "grease and water resistant." The bull nose edge of the stair tread extends beyond the front edge of the stair treads, making them safe.
