A Guide to Loft Staircases

The 4 Things We Need to Know to Quote For Your Staircase

So it’s time to shop around for a new staircase for your project. Where do you start? How do you get prices together? It’s actually a lot easier than you’d think to get a staircase quote from us – and a lot less time-consuming.

One of the most common questions we’re asked is if we need to go out and complete a survey of your site in order to produce a quote. The answer to that is a simple “No”.

Particularly with our popular designs such as the Model 71 staircase, Model 500 staircase, or the WF staircase, they all have a standardised design concept which makes it very straightforward for us to give costs based on just a few factors.

We’ve devised a handy checklist of bare minimum information that we here at Complete Stair Systems would need in order to give you a cost for your staircase – without having to come out and survey. Nice and simple.

What model are you interested in?

Simple one this, just take a look at what tickles your fancy on our website and let us know. You can see a lovely selection in our galleries, from spiral stairs to modern style staircases. If you’re really unsure, you can always call us and we’ll be more than happy to help you get an idea.

Floor to Floor Height (not floor to ceiling!)

This measurement doesn’t even need to be spot on, an approximate will do as our stairs are priced per step. If you’re replacing an existing staircase, just tell us the number of treads (steps) it has.

The Shape of the Staircase

Some examples of staircase shapes include a straight flight, half turn (the stair turns 180 degrees), or quarter turn (the stair turns 90 degrees) or spiral.

Materials

What do you want your staircase to be made of? Any specific timber type in mind? No problem if not, we will include several timber options in your quote anyway for you to consider.

If you have any drawings then send them across too. Depending on the amount of information we’re given, we’ll add additional costs at the bottom of your quote to consider. These are usually balustrade or riser infill options.
