The luxury of a bespoke and handmade staircase is that you have the control to produce exactly the needs of you and your property.

A staircase is something we all take for granted to serve a purpose in our home which is a shame as they can become a centre piece with a certain wow factor.

With modern styles being chosen more frequently in developments such as glass and open treads the option is now available to meet any design requirements.

Each property can be different with regards to space, requirement and current design restraints but many have the option to provide a great storage facility below where the space is sometimes wasted.

We can produce a number of scaled drawings illustrating proposed plans in order to make the most of the available space and also to meet current building regulations.

I am very happy with the final product regarding window installation at the Church Street site.

The workmanship is of a very high quality, paint finish is very good, and the glazing bars have been manufactured, cut and installed impeccably, communication was very good between myself, Jimmy, Dan and Adam, their client handling was also very good. Good team of lads!!

I will be putting any future work your way and would recommend you to anyone seeking bespoke manufactured specialist Joinery.

We have had two orders from these guys and all I can say is how nice they are to deal with. I have been through a lot of suppliers and the windows and door are by far the best we have ever had, as a joinery company we fit a lot. Keep up the good work and my next order will be coming shortly.

We found the service you gave us absolutely fantastic from start to finish.  We had other joinery/window suppliers in to quote for the replacement windows but didn’t find any of them matched the quality of your windows, in particular the attention to detail. (In terms of price you were similar to them but we felt more confident in the quality of the windows from you).

We have been absolutely delighted with the windows you’ve supplied to us. They are in keeping with our Victorian house but the difference to noise reduction and draughts has made a huge difference. We cannot fault the service from start to finish and the quality of the windows is fantastic. We’re looking forward to you replacing the other windows in the house in the coming year.

I needed new windows for my entire house. Richard James made me excellent quality windows and frames and arranged for them to be fitted. They are beautifully designed, built to last in hardwood and came beautifully spray painted. I am amazed how good they look. They allow so much more light into my home. 
My neighbours all admired the craftsmanship and one of them hired the firm to fit new windows throughout her house.  She was very happy with the results and the trouble Dan and the team took to meet her individual requirements. Other neighbours are keen to follow suit. 
All the team have been really friendly and helpful and gave useful advice. We were delighted to get such good quality work for a reasonable price.  They made the whole process a pleasure.

The finished product of our staircase is not only beautifully crafted but also the centre piece of our home. We couldn’t be happier with the service, advice and staircase. Highly recommend the talented and friendly team at Richard James joinery.

Do I have to pay for a quote?

All of our quotes are given to our customers free of charge. Once a quote has been sent to you, that is that last you will hear from us as no one likes to be pestered!

Will you fit the staircase?

We sleep much better at night knowing that our products have been fitted carefully and to a high standard, with as little disruption and mess for the customer. This is why we either fit the product ourselves, or use a Richard James approved contractor who we trust to carry out the job to our high standard.

Can I visit the workshop to see the progress of my job?

Of course you can! We are proud of what we do and welcome you to call in to see your jobs progress and have a chat.

If I see a design I like can you make it?

Yes. We are bespoke and we mean that. If you find a joinery product that you like the look of, we can make it. Not only that but we will help to modify it to produce the highest and most practical standard of product possible.

I am not sure exactly what I want, where can I look for inspiration?

The internet is packed with fantastic ideas and inspiration. We find that many of our customers use Pinterest and Instagram to find designs, colours and themes in which they like the look of. Of course we can modify these designs to make them unique to you.
