Try indoor/outdoor carpet runner from a home improvement store. It is cheap and sells by the foot. It comes 3' wide and may make two step treads per length needed. Use a carpet cement to make it adhere. I have a piece of this glued on a heavy duty dolly for the past couple of years. If it holds up to that abuse, it should work on the steps.

Yes, it is reflective tape just to make them more visible.

I am like you, those carpet step covers are outragously priced. I went to Lowes and purchased some outdoor carpet and some tent canvas grommets. Cut to match and used plastic wire ties to hold on. I had those on my motorhome for 10 years and never wore out. I cut new ones for my travel trailer. I spent less than $10 for 2 sets of 3 steps each which came to 6 covers and a lot left over.

Hot Glue.

Has anyone had issues with the glue turning loose in high heat. I just went out to remeasure mine, its about 96 outside and you can't keep your hand on the step because it is soooooo hot. Just wondering.

I also used the adhesive Carpet Tiles, and in addition to using them on the outside step, I used them on the inside steps that lead up to the bath/bedroom.

I did this because of the dogs (miniature daschunds), who were having trouble getting up the steps and also scratching the floor in the process. I did the steps and a small area in front of the bathroom door at the top of the steps.

OC, did you just use the self adhesive tile or did you use glue to adhere them to the steps?

if my steps ever need a new coating, i would put truck bed liner on them.. waterproof, damage proof, high friction for no slipping even when wet, and not too rough for even barefoot walking.. just spray it clean... can get from home depot and other retailers and diy it easily...
