You're welcome! Usually we would not recommend Pine because it is quite soft to use as treads and will dent easily, but reclaimed wood has often become harder over time and has a rustic look anyway so dents don't take away from the look.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Creaking Floors and StairsCause: This most often happens when a loosened wooden floor board moves up and down against a nail. Other times wood planks are rubbing against one another. The sound is notorious in old houses.You can tighten the boards by nailing, screwing or gluing the boards, but it's going to be the "annoyance versus how much you destroy your floor," Dawson says. In some cases he's been able to tighten the subfloor underneath the house with things like a 2-by-4 joist and construction adhesive. "It's not always successful, but there are tricks," he says. You might want to decide if you really want that noise to disappear. "In old Victorians that's part of the charm of the house," Dawson says. Who to call: A home repair specialist
