New Stair Treads

Hi Neighbors!

Many of you have seen our new deck out back and the front porch we replaced in a previous post, but I will be including a couple pictures in this post as I need an opinion.  We have added more stairs and I am am considering adding non slip stair treads.

With the old stairs, which were painted we have a few small accidents.  My oldest daughter has slipped twice and the youngest has also slipped a couple of times.  I am not sure if it was that they were painted and then damp from rain, or if it was just the stairs themselves.  We also had some friends come visit and one of them almost slid down the steps, but he caught himself.

We have now completely replaced the front steps of the porch and have a wooden walkway that ends in steps down to the road.  All winter long anytime it snowed we were salting the steps.  This spring we are going to try to get a cover built over the walkway and the steps down to the road.  This should help prevent some of the snow and ice building up.  When we replaced the steps on the porch we also widened them.  We will be staining them at some point, but I am wondering if it would be beneficial to add non slip stair treads.

We also added steps down from the deck out back around the corner and down to the driveway.  These already have a covering over them, but they still might need something on them to prevent people from slipping.

There are actually treads you can add, or there are coatings you can apply.  I was thinking along the line of the coating, but I am just not sure.  We don't want to ruin the look of the all wood, but we do want to have safety features in place.  What do you think?

Take a look at the pictures and then leave a comment letting me know what you would do.  I think I am going to have to spend some more time looking at the different options.  Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

See you soon, At the Fence!

I would love to try these stair treads on some of my steps. They look great and seem very safe. Can't wait to see your post if you decide to try them.

I think I would get the treads that you apply since you have such beautiful wood. At our home, I'd paint them with a coating since the wood isn't as nice looking.
