    New stairs quote - advice needed on costing

    Hi,

    I am about to start getting quotes for a domestic wooden staircase serving a single flat going from ground to first floor.

    Drawings indicate that it will need a 90 degree turn at bottom and top with around 16 steps.

    Anyone got any advice on how to go about this in a cost effective way?

    There are many carpenters in local area and some companies specialising in staircases. I am also aware that stairs can be bought 'off the shelf' but not so sure about this with the turns required.

    Many thanks

    A lot of the online companies have software on the site which automaicaly adheres to all building regs... just type the dimentions in and get one delivered, either assembled or flat pack, companies such as stairbox are a good starting point. Anything simple just pick one up at Jewson and get your joiner to butcher it to fit...

    No matter where you go, there you are...

    Thanks, looking at that website designer now.

    Is MDF a standard material for stairs these days?

    I now know that I need a "Left Hand Double Winder" e.g. https://www.kwikstairs.co.uk/section.php/10/1/double_winder

    Where possible we always try to avoid custom made staircases because of the cost, Howden/Buildbase & Jewson all do a standard staircase at round about £120, quite often we will either buy 2 and carve one up to create the few steps you need for the turn, or even make the first few steps on-site and link that up to the new staircase.

    Obviously this method isn't the prettiest but If you are trimming it up with architrave/skirting and  then fitting carpets chances are nobody will ever know.
