I am replacing rubber tread covers on an old wooden staircase. As far as I can tell, the old ones were simply glued on. They lasted about ten years before they started slipping and cracking where they were pushed over the edge of the actual tread by peoples' feet. I have two questions:
1- What kind of glue should I use for this project?
2- Do I need to strip off the old glue to get a good bond?
Quick answers would be greatly appreciated since I have a narrow window in which to finish this project. Thanks.
