- Wooden steps
- Kitchen cleaner
- Paper roll
- Chopping board
- Waste box
- Cutter knife
- Cartridge gun
Get the Materials
To start the process you will need construction adhesive (e.g. UniBond One For All), kitchen cleaner, a paper roll, a cutting board, a waste box, a cutter knife and a cartridge gun.
Clean the parts
With the kitchen cleaner, clean the surface of the stairs to ensure effective adhesion of the mounting glue.
Prepare the materials
Place the cartridge on the cutting board, making sure it is stable when you are cutting off the tip. Then screw the nozzle onto the cartridge.
Get the cartridge ready
Place the cartridge on the cutting board, and cut the nozzle leaving a diameter around 6 mm. Now you can put the cartridge into the cartridge gun.
Apply the product
Apply beads of construction adhesive (e.g. UniBond One For All), maintaining an even speed and pressure without pressing too hard. Try to apply the same amount of adhesive to every section.
Stick the wood to the stair steps and press it gently. Check the final position to make sure it’s well aligned and then it’s done! After installing stairs, find out how to complete your work by installing a skirting board.
