One week’s notice is required for a site measure to occur. Our normal lead time for installation is always 4-5 weeks from time of final site measure.
A secondary measure may also be required if any changes/alterations were requested to be made by our site consultant.
Our Installation Manager will stay in close contact with you over this period. Installation will usually take place within one day however larger jobs may spread out over a few days.

This is a hard question to answer, as staircases can range in price from about $2000 all the way up to $50,000 depending on the materials used and labour involved. As a guide, most of our clients spend between $3000 and $5000.
Although most staircases can be installed in a day, some larger projects may take two days. It should also be noted that the stairs cannot be walked on for 24 hours after installation to allow the 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 you don’t walk on new staircases within 24 hours of installation to allow the glue to dry. In the event that creaking occurs, this can generally be fixed fairly easily using additional/replacement wedges and glue blocks.

We use a wide range of timbers such as MDF, Pine, Victorian Ash and Tasmanian Oak. We can also manufacture staircases from a number of exotic timbers (such as Spotted Gum, Blackbutt, Sydney Blue Gum, American Oak and Brushbox). Our showroom contains samples of each species we have on offer. Visit our timber types page for further options or get in touch if the timber you desire is not displayed.
Note that we only supply select grade timber with our hardwood and we do not use veneered timber.
