FAQs - Frequently Asked Questions
Do you make staircases for domestic & trade customers?
We do welcome enquiries from both trade and domestic customers, however with our ever increasing trade client base and the extremely high demand on us from them, we are only able to take on a small number of residential projects.
How do I order a staircase?
Initially, you will need to send us your plans or drawings and we will prepare you a quotation based on your individual requirements. If you do not have drawings or plans, we will arrange a suitable time to see you at your property or site to take measurements and discuss your requirements. Once we have submitted our quote to you and you are happy to proceed, you can place your order by email, telephone or in person, we will then book you into our work schedule, arrange a final measure visit to your property and give you a delivery date.
What types of timber/materials do you work with?
We use the best redwood (pine), moisture resistant MDF and hardwood plywood for our standard staircases, but we also use a wide range of hardwoods.
