New Luxury Vinyl Plank Stairs

5 years ago
last modified: 5 years ago

We just replaced our carpeted stairs with LVP. There are gaps about 1/8" between the step and the riser. We asked the installer about the gap and his solution was to caulk the gaps. Is this acceptable or should he redo the install so the risers are flush with the steps? Will the caulking peel off? Is this just a bandaid or a proper solution? To us, it seems as though the installer doesn't want to redo the labor.
