Should I caulk where stair risers meet a skirt board?
I am a DIY’er who recently converted carpeted stairs to oak treads and risers. I am not an expert, so yes, the seams are not as tight as an experienced carpenter might be able to do.
I have seams along where the risers meet the skirt board. It’s nothing big. Let’s call it as thick as a few sheets of copy paper, at worst.
So the question is, is it common practice to caulk those areas? Risers and skirt board are the same color.
I do not want to do molding.
