Up the apples and pears - Stairs

The Challenge

We were approached by a loft conversion company that we work with on a regular basis. They were carrying out a loft conversion in central Harrogate. The customer wanted the staircase to continue from the original seamlessly. The existing staircase elements needed to be recreated to give the impression that the new addition had always been part of the house. 

 

The solution

We carried out a site survey and painstakingly obtained measurements and images of the existing staircase details. We then measured the space for the new staircase (floor to floor). Back at the workshop a plan was drawn up and timescales agreed.  

 

The cut string, mitred and bracketed staircase with over hanging treads, with replicated turned spindles and a hand carved swan neck handrail was manufactured to fit the space and match the existing not only in style but also in colour. Our finishing team went to great lengths to mix the rich deep colour and stain the handrail to match.

Customer Comments

I write to express my sincere thanks for your recent involvement in the loft conversion works at our property. As you know, one of the key areas of concern for us at the outset was to ensure that the new staircase for the loft areas match the existing to ensure a certain continuity with the property itself. 

Right from the start you and your team were extremely helpful in assisting my partner and I in making decisions that would affect the layout and overall look of the staircase, which obviously has a knock-on effect to the aesthetic of the property. 

The staircase you produced for us looks fantastic and matches perfectly with the existing staircase and balustrade, and the craftsmanship that has gone into this has been noted by other contractors that have come in to do work following yours.

It is a fantastic addition to our home and we very much look forward to taking off the protective material once everything is moved into the new areas to truly appreciate the work. 

Please could you pass on to your team our thanks for all their hard work during the project as a whole.
