The owners of this property in the Aldwick Bay Estate, Bognor Regis, West Sussex came to M.J Carpentry & Joinery asking us if we could do a staircase refurb for them.
After chatting through the various options and finding out the kind of look and finish the owners wanted, the work could begin. Below is how the works proceeded:
- Set up onsite and cut back any carpet in the way, as this was being replaced.
- Carefully remove the old varnished panels and handrails.
- Measured and cut the existing newel posts to receive the new Edwardian style newel posts.
- New newel posts were then glued and fixed into position ready for the next stage.
- Handrails and Baserails were then accurately cut, test fitted first and then glued and fixed into their final position.
- Spindles could then be measured and cut including cutting the little spacers that have to be fixed in between each spindle, again spindles were Edwardian.
- Once the spindles and spacers were glued and nailed in to place, all the stair parts had a light sand with fine grit sandpaper and the newel ball caps were glued into position.
- The newly refurbished stairs were then ready for the decorator to come in and paint, the owners found the decorator and arranged for this stage.
