What a great company, from the first meeting with Chris (designer) to plan our new stairs, through to the survey with Chris, to the fitting carried out by Brian and Jowel (whose workmanship is exemplary). All concerned made this a pleasant experience. We are absolutely delighted with the end product and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Shaw Stairs to anyone.

The Shaw Stairs Factory
There is always so much going on at the Shaw Stairs factory and the whole team plays their own important part. Firstly, it all starts with our brilliant sales team who are responsible for answering any customer queries, providing quotations and booking on orders. These orders can range from a couple of spindles or newel caps to a whole new staircase with balustrade. Once these orders have been booked on they are then passed onto our carpenters working on the factory floor; this is where the real magic happens.
Our highly skilled team of joiners are able to turn raw timber into a beautiful centre piece for your home. We build staircases which range in size and scale, from new builds with grand entrance halls to quaint house renovations. The factory is constantly alive with movement as our team run the raw materials through the machines and then glue and nail the staircases together. Once this has all been done our delivery driver then picks up the stairs and takes them to site.
It's always great to see the finished product so we love it when our customers send us photographs of the installed piece. Take a look at the one below; this gorgeous staircase is made from hemlock and wrought iron. The contrasting materials really make this staircase stand out from the rest.

Did you know that the stair and landing areas is one of the most overlooked spaces of every home?
Your stair balustrade may be the key to improving the way your home looks, and is an easy way to give a more elegant and luxurious feel. The hardest part of refurbishing your stairs is choosing a design which you feel will be fitting to your personal style and taste. Once you have made this decision the Shaw Stairs sales team are happy to help plan and quote everything which you will need.
Stairs are made up of various parts, such as, spindles, handrails, base rails, newel posts etc. This is where the choice of what to replace comes in. For example, if your newel posts are in good condition and you are happy with the design you may feel that the rails and spindles are the only parts which need replacing and vice versa. This is perfectly normal and updating just one area of your balustrade can still make all the difference.
The spindles are a key element to any design, these come in all different shapes and sizes as well as various materials. Some prefer a more traditional look with timber spindles like pine, oak or hemlock where others feel a more contemporary material suits them, such as chrome or brushed nickel. Iron spindles are also an option which a lot of customers like, but ultimately the choice is yours.
Hand and Base Rails
The handrail is the part of your balustrade which sits on top of your spindles, which you hold onto when you are going up or down the stairs. Handrails are usually made from wood and are often stained or glossed to protect them and keep them looking fresh. The base rail is the opposite end of the spindles and is used to help keep spindles in place.
Your stair balustrade is definitely the area which you are most drawn to when you enter your home. If this area is designed well, it can create a lasting impression on yourself and visitors. This is also one of the easiest and most satisfying ways of improving your home.
Visit our Website or eBay store now to find your stairs parts to transform the way your home looks. If you require any assistance, please email our helpful and friendly sales team or give them a call.
