Stair builders use different installation practices when installing their product. Depending on the type of staircase required we use additional fixings to ensure a secure fixing to all structural areas, use the glue and screw method with extra glue blocks (not applicable for some custom made staircases for example  steel and timber central stringer, box-style or open-rise staircases), which together will reduce the possibility of squeaks or movement in future. Some companies simply nail-gun their staircases.

Timber Standards
There are several standards for timber, ranging from structural timber for framing houses to select-grade for clear timber. Most stair builders use either standard or select-grade timbers. We only offer select-grade timbers unless otherwise specified by the customer.

Standard grade timber shows gum veins, knots, insect trails and other unusual grain effects. It is a unique and increasingly popular grade, which includes the most interesting variation and marking to enhance its character.

Select grade timber features a low level of marks and natural characteristics. Select grade is valued for its sleek, clean, uniform appearance and is perfect for modern, minimalist and traditional settings.
