Replace the wedges Often the thin wedge s that are between the upright pieces or risers as well as the treads have worked loose and even dropped out altogether. Before fitting the screws, work some woodworking glue into the joint between the underside of the tread and the top of the riser, this may not be easy if the joint is tight. It makes sense to me. If I'm only touching a stair long enough to kind of guide myself down, it seems that I'm not putting all the force my body has to offer onto that stair, and again, I'd push down on it less, and it should make less noise. If the boards have been nailed down highly likely and that the nails are ribbed a series of circles around the nail to hold it in betterwhich is just as likely, then you will have difficulty getting them out without damaging the board unless you drill the head of the nail off using a high speed steel drill bit. Memories I thought I had long since locked away in secret vaults came out into the light as I began to tell my story.

This weeks column on Christian Today — you can read the original here…. Our stairs no longer creak! I say surprising because really I was expecting more work to achieve a creak-free finish but so far so good. This is more clear if you take it to the limit. The kind of child abuse that Mez endured — with the subsequent drug abuse, violence, and crime — is horrific and far more common than we might realize.

Where I removed the internal wall on one side I found this problem and placed long spax screws through the sole plate into every joist. Creaking floorboards are relatively easy to fix although not if they are chipboard, unfortunately because it is straightforward to pinpoint the creaking area and secure the rubbing boards at that point. Now your force is always going to equal, more or less, your body weight, but if the stair reacts slowly enough, or if you apply your weight to it for a short enough time, then the stair should have no creak work done on it. We can stop blaming ourselves. We can stop destroying ourselves.

Loose boards or stairs can cause nasty injuries if not properly repaired. To prevent the wood from splitting, drilling pilot holes may be necessary. Using a larger drill bit, counter bore the top of each hole to accept a dowel plug to cover the screws after they have been fitted.
