Construction Adhesive on Stringers

Now here's a good picture of the construction adhesive that has been applied to the stair stringers, before attaching the treads. Put a liberal bead of construction adhesive on each stringer.

Here's the best tip I could give you to reduce the chances of your stairs actually squeaking, in the future. Applying more construction adhesive to the center stair stringer than to the outside stair stringers.

This is the area where most of the stair squeaking is going to happen. Think about it, rarely, if ever are you going to use the edges of the stairs to walk up and down. Just a little food for thought.
