"Dear Rob, Hope all well. Just a quick email to let you know how absolutely delighted we are with the staircase . It’s really beautiful and exactly as we wanted. It was a real pleasure working with you. Your 2 guys on site these past few weeks have been amazing. All the builders have commented on what lovely young men they are, so polite and well mannered & respectful and they get on with everyone which is important when there are so many people on site going up and down the stairs."

"I'd highly recommend James Steel. They were helpful and patient with getting the best design within our confined space. The end result is a stunning modern individual staircase which we are delighted with. We were really glad we used a local company and would definitely use them again."
