We bought a house that is over 100 years old and are renovating it. Currently we are having a money shortage. However, we have discovered that two of our front porch steps are in danger of rotting through. We will be able to fix the porch in a month - does anyone have any short term solutions for the stairs. One thought was nailing another board ontop of the stair tread to more evenly distribute the weight. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
