When customers ask us how much does it cost for an oak staircase, there are various questions we need to ask them first.
When it comes to costs for an oak staircase, the materials used, the craftsmanship and the design are hugely significant.
Bespoke oak staircase designs can start from £3000 whereas radical designs can cost as much as £30,000!
It is impossible to put a price range on oak staircases due to the variation in endless designs, but average staircase costs with typical designs and materials, are actually pretty reasonable.
At Windsor Bespoke, we have been manufacturing and installing oak staircases for years.
Finding realistic prices for a standard staircase replacement doesn’t have to be tough. We have assembled the key information and guidance on stair costs, right down to the installation.
Building Regulations For Replacing a Staircase
First of all, there is a set of specific building regulations regarding staircases.
These guidelines cover a range of technical specifications, ensuring both safety and comfort for homeowners.
It covers shapes and dimensions: height, level, pitch and length. Clearances must also be taken into account, right down to the smaller details such as handrails and balustrades.
If you’re fitting a similar replacement staircase, you’re unlikely to encounter problems as the dimensions should be very similar.
For new additions to a building, such as loft conversions or extensions, you are making a significant change to the building. You will need to ensure your designs abide by the set regulations.
Cost of An Oak Staircase Fife
When it comes to pricing an oak staircase, there are many factors that come in to consideration.
The first factor is the material used, and in this instance, we are discussing oak.
Secondly, installation costs can rise depending on the ease of access, lower levels are usually much cheaper than higher levels. Complexity and scale also needs to be taken into consideration.
The design is the next major factor.
Is it a straight flight?
Is it a single winder?
Straight mid landing?
Double landing etc?
We would always prefer to work with architects drawings and go from there.
How Long Will a Stair Replacement Take?
If you are planning on installing a bespoke design staircase you need to have accurate plans draw up by an architect.
This process can take up to 10 weeks. The actual manufacture of the staircase may take a further 2-4 weeks.
In most cases, a basic made-to-measure staircase only requires measurements from floor to floor.
Once you have confirmed your specification with a supplier, they will produce a replacement staircase within a week.
