A key feature of a property potentially dating back to the earliest days of its construction, maintaining the character of a wooden staircase is essential to keeping the spirit and history of a property alive.
In addition to this, there are likely to be safety considerations to take into account where staircases are in regular or constant use.
But wooden staircases, finely-crafted handrails and intricately-carved newel posts can be particularly challenging to restore. Part of the fabric of the building, they cannot be removed, meaning repair and restoration works must be carried out on site.
At Farcroft Restorations Group, our skilled craftspeople are as comfortable working on location as they are in our workshops, and bring the same level of skill to both types of woodwork restoration project.
For structural elements like staircases, we draw on our knowledge of the materials and working practices used at the time of construction to help us complete both small-scale repairs and complete renovations.
