I would recomend taking out the old staircase because if you add to whats there then the top stair is going to be an inch shorter and the bottom one is going to be an inch taller, also another reason is thatif your old pine stairs are worn the surface might not be level causing the stairs to squeak when you walk on them. An advantage of starting over is that you can fasten on the new stairs from the bottom so that you dont have to worry about nail holes that need to be filled. If the stairs are done correctly you should not have to worry about the span if you send me your e-mail address i will send you a diagram of how to correctly join the treads to the risers.
