This is a commonly asked question. A staircase can vary significantly from $2,000 to $50,000 based on the selection of material and labour involved in the manufacture. Most customers generally spend between $3,000 - $4,000. All projects are quoted individually and we can always provide advice on the most cost efficient design for your property.
Most staircases can be installed within a day and larger jobs may spread out over two days. It is important to note that staircases cannot be walked on for 24 hours after installation in order for glue to dry.
Staircases will never creak/squeak if they are installed correctly and fitted with the appropriate amount of wedges and glue blocks. It is always recommended that staircases are not walked on 24 hours after installation to allow the glue to dry. In the event that creaking occurs, this can generally be easily fixed with additional/replacement wedges and glue blocks.
Gowling Stairs has a wide range of glass balustrading. Please browse through our website for further or contact us for additional options.
Repairing and/or renovating staircases can be a complicated job based on many factors. We review each request on an individual basis.
We use a wide range of timbers such as MDF, Pine, Victorian Ash and Tasmanian Oak. We manufacture staircases with a significant amount of Exotic Timbers such as Spotted Gum, Blackbutt, Sydney Blue Gum, American Oak and Brushbox. Please browse our website for further options or alternatively contact us if the timber you require is not displayed. Our showroom also contains samples of each species. It is important to note that we only supply select grade timber with our hardwood and we do not use veneered timber.
We can provide a staircase made from Pine or MDF which is suitable to lay material over.
We service all of Victoria and even service a number of clients in New South Wales.
