Stiffening a stair case in lords wood Southampton.
This stair case in a property in lordswood, Southampton had become springy and was creaking, the glue originally used had degraded and the wedges were loose, the joining of the treads to the risers could have been done better, only three screws used. Most customers assume that a new stair case is required, this is not the case. Comprehensive use of blocks glued and screwed from underneath solves the problem. The lordwood area of Southampton seems to have a lot of creaking stair cases, this is the fifth stair case I have silenced on that particular estate. Considering that the properties are circa 1970s I can only assume that the stair cases were factory made as cheaply as possible and the glues used of inferior grade.

Traditional standards. Traditional tradesman. Traditional service.
I have been a carpenter for over 45years, 5 year apprenticeship as a boat builder, 2 years as a wood machinist, then a spell repairing furniture and manufacturing reproduction antique clocks. I spent a further 15 years working in a therapeutic environment passing on my skills, before setting myself up as a self-employed carpenter/joiner.
As you will appreciate, I undertake a wide range of projects, so scrolling through the site map may well direct you to past work that may be similar to your requirements.
The preferred way to contact me is by using the contact page on this site. However you can always ring me during normal working hours. Lead times vary depending on the time of year; small jobs I can often do promptly.
I cover Southampton and I am also happy to visit Winchester and Salisbury areas, but a small fee will be charged.
