Staircase Renovation FAQs

What is the cost to renovate stairs?

The cost of a staircase renovation will vary considerably depending upon a number of factors. Do you simply need your spindles replaced, or are you looking for new treads and balustrades? How many flights do you have, and how many steps in each?

Another factor to consider is the materials you’d like to be used for your staircase renovation. Glass panels are a great option to let in more light and create a feeling of increased space. Or you might prefer a more classic look, with wooden, fluted spindles.

We’ll also need to factor in the cost of labour, as if more work needs doing on your staircase renovation, this will obviously take longer.

When you get in touch with the team at Abbott Wade, we’ll discuss your preferences and take measurements to give you an accurate price for your staircase renovation.

How do I modernise my stairs?

The best, and by far the cheapest way to modernise your stairs is with a staircase renovation. Depending on the current condition of your staircase, and your preferences, this could mean different things for different people.

For instance, you could consider replacing your carpeted stairs with open riser wooden treads. Maybe you’d like to replace your boxed in 70s staircase with an elegant glass balustrade to let in some light. Or perhaps your bannisters are looking a bit dated, and you’d like to update them with trendy steel handrails.

These are just some of the ways that the experienced team at Abbott Wade can help you to modernise your stairs with a staircase renovation.

Can you just replace the spindles?

Yes, if there is no damage to the rest of your staircase, but your spindles are looking a little tired, we can simply replace them. There are lots of beautiful and stylish options to choose from, from fluted wooden spindles to forged steel and even glass spindles or frameless glass panels.

Replacing your balustrades can make a huge difference to the aesthetics of your home. Particularly when replacing your dated spindles with glass staircase panels, this can really open up your space. Glass panels allow the light to flow through your home and offer a contemporary and elegant look.

If you’d like a free, no obligation quote for your staircase spindles replacing, get in touch with the Abbott Wade team today. Either give us a call on 01744 634442 or send us a message using the online contact form and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Do you need planning permission to change a staircase?

If you’re simply having a staircase renovation, then you won’t need any planning permission from your local authority, and you won’t even need to submit a building regulations application.

If you are installing an entirely new staircase that is exactly the same as your previous one, this is considered a staircase repair. In this case, you still won’t need planning permission or building regulations approval.

However, if you are installing a new staircase that is not the same as your previous one, or you are relocating your staircase, you will need building regulations approval.

You can do this by applying directly to your local council, or through a private approved inspector, who will tell your local authority about the work. This is known as an ‘initial notice’. A site inspection of the staircase will be performed once work is complete, and a completion certificate will be issued once the staircase is deemed to comply with building regulations.

There are very few instances where you will need planning permission from your local authority to relocate your stairs. A staircase renovation, replacement or relocation does not need planning permission unless the new design impacts the external appearance of your property in any way.

If the staircase does affect the external appearance of your property, then you will also need to apply for planning permission from your local council.

How long does staircase renovation take?

A simple staircase renovation by Abbott Wade can be completed in just one day. We’ll remove any parts that you’d like replacing and take them away to be recycled. Then we’ll add the new balustrades, handrails, and newel posts. We can perform staircase renovation so efficiently because most elements are pre-finished.
