Laminate flooring

Hi All,

I would appreciate some help and advice. I am laying inter-locking flooring in my entrance hall. No problem with the flat surface BUT -- I have two stairs that I need to lay as well. Can anyone tell me the best way to do this. Having removed the carpet and underlay, the stairs still have a lip on them. Should I fill this so that the riser and the upper floor have a clean 90 deg edge?

Help!!!

Welcome to the forums! You won't get the laminate to fit on the stairs, sorry. As you suggested, the bullnose will be your problem, and the laminate won't bend. The stairs will probably need retreading with oak bullnose and stained the color of your laminate to make it pleasing.
