Staircase specialists James Steel

James Steel can survey and plan the stairs using CAD software in a variety of configurations be it straight, winder flights, curved, continuous, helical or elliptical.

The stairs can be built in various materials incorporating all types of timber; oak, walnut, sapele, pine, ash, wenge. We also use metal and glass. Many different styles of new staircases can be created; modern, traditional, open riser, closed riser, floating staircases, cut string and contemporary.

With our team of time-served craftsmen and the latest cutting edge CNC machinery, we are able to produce wreathed handrail, curved continuous handrailing, magnificent scrolls, swan necks and volutes. Our in-house wood finishing department can provide the stairs or components in an array of finishes, factory sprayed lacquer, stains or just primed ready for finishing on site. We are proud of the work we carry out and the excellent bespoke stairs we manufacture in the United Kingdom.

We work with:

- Timbers including oak, walnut, sapele, pine, ash, wenge

- Metals including stainless steel, aluminium, brass, wrought iron and steel

Toughened or laminated glass grooved into the handrail and baserail or bolted to the sides of your new stairs with sleek stainless steel fittings, this gives you a new and revitalised look, making the staircase the centre piece of your home.

Please contact us to discuss your requirements.

A James Steel staircase will not only look amazing, it will add value to your property.
