What's the cheapest way to upgrade my stairs?

We sell a range of pine components which are excellent value if you are looking to renovate your staircase on a budget. These are perfect if you are painting your handrail and spindles to give it a more modern, contemporary look.

Can I install a glass balustrade on my current staircase?

By inputting some basic dimensions into our Balustrade Designer tool, you can get an instant design and price for a new glass balustrade. With some basic DIY knowledge it's easy to replace your existing spindles for a light and modern look.

Do open stairs comply with Building Regulations?

We ensure that all our Open Plan staircases are compliant with Building Regulations and all gaps are less than 100mm.

Do glass balustrades let more light through?

The best option to let more light into your stairwell is to opt for a glass balustrade system. This can be fitted either as a renovation or selected on a new staircase design. To maximise the benefit, why not pair the glass balustrade with an Open Riser staircase!

Do your stairs come pre-painted?

All of our stairs are sent out pre-sanded but unfinished, for you to apply an oil or paint colour of your own choice.

How do I retain the light colour of my oak staircase / stair parts?

We offer a product called Treatex Hardwax Oil ULTRA Clear Natural (available in our Stair Parts shop) which keeps the oak looking as close to unfinished as possible. Apply as a base coat, with a further coat of Ultra (either flat matt or matt) on top as a final coat.
