Question Front Step Ideas

Hi all,

I am trying to decide what to do in the driver/front step area flooring wise. Can I see some pictures of your guys' setups at the moment. Currently mine is just the original floor. MY best bet is to run laminate but i am wary to do so since that will be a very high traffic area


Pics would be great! Advice is Welcome! Movie critics are the Devil!


Thanks you!

I used poly-vinyl rubber flooring that has a diamond tread pattern. Water PROOF and slip resistant. HD sells it on line. Sorry I don't have pics.

That's nice. Is the rest of the bus flooring the same?

Laminate is made from glued together press wood and should not be installed in a bus.

Vinyl plank looks just like laminate, but contains no wood to swell, buckle and rot.
Cost is around the same per square foot.

I used the Vinyl Laminate on the face of my steps. I didn't want to loose any depth to my steps. It's held up very well. I believe I used "walnut"...
