We are a bespoke joinery specialist with a reputation that extends all across the south east. Most importantly, we have a history of meeting the highest standards. The joiners and craftspeople on our team are capable of creating timber staircases as well as various other products. Everything we produce is always unique and naturally beautiful.
Timber is still the most common material for staircases because it is so versatile and long lasting. Stairs are an essential part of homes all over the country. The design and creation is always vital to their effectiveness and integrity.
However, something else that is equally as important is the installation. A poor service here can result in stability problems. In turn, this can cause a failure and make the structure a hazard. Fortunately, we are here to assist you in making certain this does not happen.
One thing you should do is plan the delivery of your stairs carefully. Do this closer to the time when you have to install the staircase. This way, the contents won’t be left just lying around for very long. If the situation calls for it, it is preferable to store timber stairs in well ventilated, clean places that are safe from sunlight and damp.
Preparation with timber staircases
While the aim with every bespoke staircase is precision, it may be necessary to prepare joints and trim components. This is important to ensure they can fit together properly. It is better to do this before fixing anything into position. In addition, it is a good idea to work from the top of the stairs down.
Fixing to the support structure
It is absolutely crucial that the stairs are fixed to the support structure. This will ensure they are safely in place and able to support the load. Every fixing point should have clearance and pilot holes. It is also vital to never force a fixing into a material as it can split the timber.
