Converting carpeted stairs to hardwood...

14 years ago

We are having our carpeted stairs and upper landing converted to hardwood. The installer said he will just knock off the old nosings and place with new 1" hardwood steps w/ nosings on top of each old step. As I think about it, that means that the first step of the stairs (from the bottom) will be a 1" higher. I'm not sure yet how the last step (at the top of the stairs) will be since the landing at the top of the stair will be 3/4" hardwood.

Does this make sense? Will this be a tripping point? Is this normal?

Thanks.... Gary
