comment Should we use carpet tape or tack strips?
There is no moisture in the basement, and this carpet is a commercial-grade roll that we already own and want to use up (not something we would otherwise use). When it becomes damaged we will replace it with something else. We have since decided that using carpet strips is the way to go since we will be putting a pad underneath, which might cause slippage to the carpet if using tape only.

comment What is the right adhesive to use with PVC interior paneling and trim?
I researched the product and the applicator ~ this looks like what we need. The adhesive can be used for vinyl baseboard, so I assume it can be used with our PVC product also.

comment What product should we use to finish stair treads?
It is not preferable to have the stairs 'tied up' too long with the drying/curing of the multiple layers of urethane.Your advice is good ~ will probably save us from a few 'headaches'. Thanks!

By wood finish do you mean a stain? In our case it would need to be a solid stain.

comment What product should we use to finish stair treads?
They aren't heavily damaged, just some old embedded paint in the 'grooves', and along the nose of the tread. We need to use a solid coverage product so the old paint would be completely covered. Would oil paint or solid stain be the most durable?

Will urethane make it slippery? And is solid stain a good choice, given the steps aren't in perfect condition?

comment Can we apply formica directly to bare sheetrock?
This is in a small corner area of the basement, which is unfinished with concrete floors. It is a rental, so would be easier to clean, and if we needed to remove it in the future it will be a simple removal. Thanks.

That is our exact concern: easy to clean ~ this is in a rental house. It is only a small corner area so it seemed reasonable to us. If we have to remove it in the future it won't be a big expensive removal job. Thanks.
