Staircase Stories: Mr & Mrs Burman, Surrey

Burman - twisted oak spindles rake

 

Every home is unique and so is every staircase refurbishment – not just because they all vary in size, layout and pitch but also because our bespoke design service means that our customers get the the stairs they really want not a ‘one-size-fits-all’ off-the-peg installation. With this in mind, the Burman family of Surrey knew they’d made the right choice in choosing Abbott-Wade.

 


“We are delighted with our stairs. The fitters did a remarkable job, being both professional, innovative and pleasant to have in the house, always polite and neat and tidy.
