stair nose installed on top of floor planks

28 days ago

We have these long steps in our basement. They were tile previously but have decided to cover them in LVP. Our floor installer installed the stair nose so that it overlaps. This creates a small lip on the top step. Both steps have it, but the top step concerns me more. I understand that it’s easier to install this way and may be better if the floor contracts and expands. But I’m concerned with that being a tripping hazard. Am I wrong about that? Should I demand they install it flush?
