How Much To Bid Stair Tread Intallation Labor Cost?


I have to bid a job where I need to tear off the carpet on the stairs and install new Oak stair treads, a landing, risers and skirts. There are 15 Treads, risers and one Landing. I'm an experienced carpenter but have not done stair treads, could someone estimate how many hours this might take?

Well, that may be a bit difficult seeing as we don't know if you are a professional, experienced carpenter that knows his stuff or a drug-addled, hack wanna-be carpenter that was kicked out of the Navy with a dishonorable discharge.

Do you have a pic of the treads? Are the ends tucked into the stringers, by any chance?

With everything there, I would give myself 2 days, at least. Some would laugh, maybe, but that's what I would do.

It's simply an impossible question to answer with any degree of accuracy.
There are too many variables.

I would charge for the trip and a one hour minimum to bid on the job.

Yeah, I agree with Robie.

Are you going to glue the treads? More time. Might want to peruse some youtubes to get more familiar. You can easily burn a day and feel like you got nowhere.
