I have removed the risers from my stairs (currently halfway up) and I am wondering if they are safe? They seem sturdy enough, and since they have been like that, I have had a massive water tank removed and carried down them. But everyone keeps saying the stairs will collapse, so I am at a standstill. I do not know how to proceed.
I have been adding another tread on top of the original tread to make it meet regulations, and I like the chunky look it is giving them. I am also going to be getting them carpeted.
Any help would be appreciated!!
