Below we will explain how your staircase will be delivered, some companies will not want to say what they do or don’t do, so leaving you with more work to do on site that you had hoped for. Here at Express Timber Stairs we do as much for you as we believe is possible without causing you possible problems down the road, everything on the staircase comes fully cut & trenched so all you need to do is put it together.
If you are struggling for access in your property and you chose to order your staircase unassembled then you will receive loose staircase strings, all your treads & risers and any other components for the staircase core pre-cut and trenched to size, (please see photo below) all your wedges & glue blocks will be in a box for your assembly on site.
If you have no problem with access then you may wish to order your staircase pre-assembled at no extra charge. This is where the main straight runs of the staircase will be delivered to you already assembled, strings treads & risers. The part of the staircase the comes delivered flat pack would be the staircase turn and newel posts, (please see photo below) these have been dry fitted in our work shop, the only cuts that you may have to do is trim some of the winder risers down to fit in length.
All newel posts will be delivered at the correct length with all trenching carried out ready to except any treads & risers and strings. Any load bearing newels asked for will be pre-cut to floor level, If you require any other newel posts to be load bearing please inform our sales team or alternatively please add this requirement in your notes section of our online ordering system. Please note all landing newel posts will be supplied as planed blanks 1500mm long.
All Handrail, Base Rails & Spindles will be delivered un cut, as Express Timber Stairs believes this is better carried out on site, the staircase only has to be fitted slightly out of plumb and then all the cuts are incorrect, also damage can easily happen on site when moving long lengths of handrails around tight corridors and if the mite is caught then the whole length is ruined, we reflect this in our hand rail prices.
All qtr turn or half landing staircase will be delivered with a landing board, this will need cutting to suit your landing that you will have formed on site, this is because your walls could be slightly out of square etc, you then cut the board we have supplied and fit onto your joists, we also supply strings at the same section of the staircase strings so that if you wish you can follow the string line around you landing board.
We hope the above gives you an insight of your product will be delivered, if you require any more information please don’t hesitate in contacting one of our friendly sales team on email@example.com or telephone us on 0113 4571775
