Meet ‘Winston Wolfe’: Aftercare at Abbott-Wade

wiggy 2017Winston Wolfe was the famous ‘fixer’ from Pulp Fiction who defines his role with the line, ‘I solve problems’. We have no need for this Harvey Keitel character, instead we have Adam – our Abbott-Wade equivalent (only much less intimidating and far more friendly). Affectionately known to his friends as ‘Wiggy’, Adam’s career started in cabinet making – a trade which demands a keen eye for detail.

Staircase Stories: Mr & Mrs Hughes, Amersham

Extension work to the Hughes family home in Amersham created the perfect opportunity for begin planning for a stunning entrance hall. An oak staircase comprising Abbott-Wade’s Cube handrail with white stringers and risers was decided upon. Soft carpeted treads and a stunning feature step were the icing on an already delicious cake!
“The Abbott-Wade staff were so helpful throughout the whole process. All the staff were very friendly and helpful at every stage. They even noticed a tiny fault on one piece of the glass and had a replacement on order before we even knew there was problem. I would certainly highly recommend the company and their product to anyone who asked me.

What makes us different?

There’s a few staircase companies out there. If you’re reading this no doubt you’ve been shopping around and come across some of them for yourselves. However, please don’t tar us all with the same brush, because there’s quite a few things which set us apart from the rest.

You probably already know that we’ve been specialising in new flights and staircase renovations for over 20 years – since 1996 in fact.
