    Default Shoe Molding on Stair Treads

    I just had my staircase re-finished and now Iím about to paint.

    Is it common for a staircase design to have shoe molding where the tread and raiser meet?

    My house was built in 1926 and with the age, the tread and raiser created a gap, which a molding will cover nicely.

    Thanks.

    Top side of the tread with a 1/2 inch shoe. My treads are 10". What do you think?

    Thanks for the advice. I agree with you. The gaps are very small and not that noticeable unless youíre standing on top of them.

    However, for me since I see it every day, it's noticeable.

    I mocked up a piece of shoe last night and something didn't look right. Plus something didn't seem right from the start of this thought. That's why I posted the question.

    Thanks.

    where is this gap is it on top of the tread where it meets the riser, or under to tread near the nosing.

    if the gap is on top of the tread and is small is would just caulk it. if the gap is underneath at the nosing 1/2" cove molding is the norm to use
    fire up the saw and make some dust
