Using Construction Adhesive for Stair Treads

It's difficult to see in the picture above, but there is a strip of construction adhesive on top of the stairs stringer. I tried to get a close up, but it looks like I had a lighting problem.

Make sure that you get a good construction adhesive. I like to use polyurethane based adhesives and try to stay away from construction adhesives that dry out and become brittle.

Most polyurethane based adhesives have better holding power as lumber begins to shrink. Adhesives that become brittle can easily separate as lumber dries out and starts to shrink.
