basement stairs separating-help please

12 years ago

My basement stairs are separating. I think it's called spreading of stringer. My neighbor wants to take off one side, take out the the stair and the nails that connect to the sides and then use screws instead of nails to reconnect it to the side (not a wall). Is this the right way to do it or is there a better way to fix the spreading? thanks, Angie
