Re: Companionway Steps
I'm struggling with a solution myself. We have non-skid pads adhered to the treads, but they are worn down and don't provide much friction any longer.
The problem I have with all the replacement products I've seen (and I have a roll in front of me) is the side of the tape is white, like the color of the backing. What I have on there now is color consistent throughout, much thicker and much more finished/professional looking. I've seen taped on non-skid start peeling on other applications and it looks terrible.
In fact, I'm a bit reluctant to remove what I have now, it just isn't terribly effective any longer.
One solution I'm considering is masking around the current non-skid and painting a non-skid material on to it, to rejuvenate the friction. I can't say for sure, if a paint would adhere to old non-skid or not.
