    just take a piece of plywood, cut the width of the steps, then measure how far each step is apartt the part of the step that sticks out the farthest on the tread. mark this with a chaulk strip and then place glue indoor outdoor grass carpeting to it, or paint it with the epoxy paint that has the rough granules in it for traction. Then nail the board down nailing wherever the treads are and also along the sides if there is a wood part there also.

    A handicap type ramp needs to be made properly and if you want it to be over your stairs I would think that it would be to high a pitch.
