When acclimatising your floor make sure you leave it in its box, in the room that you are going to install your floor in. The temperature should remain 'normal' for that room whilst the floor acclimatises. Make sure the subfloor is as clean as can be â€“ sweep, hoover and wash the floor before leaving it to dry.
Lay builder's felt. Cover the subfloor with 15-pound builder's felt and run it in the same direction as the new flooring (in line with the longest walls, typically). Butt the felt's edges together and use a hammer tacker to staple down each edge every 4 feet or so. Trim felt to within 1/2 inch of walls.
Using adhesive, attach the engineered wood nosing after the tread and risers are in place and push against the nosing so it's secure. Then, hammer nails to secure the nosing. Finish the stairs by adding putty into the holes created by the nails. Use the same shade as your engineered wood flooring for a seamless design.
