Tips For Measuring Your Steps For Custom Cut Runners

  • Use a flexible tape measure
  • Pick a step and measure your first tread, placing the end of the tape measure against the riser on the step above it as your starting point
  • Wrap the measuring tape around the nose of the stair, holding it tight and then down the next riser (see image)
  • If you are padding the steps, add 1/2 inch per step
  • Multiply the number you measured by the number of steps you want to cover, that's it!
  • We suggest you always add an extra foot to your order, better safe than sorry!
