When a staircase arrives from Stairworld, the winder on the staircase has been dis-assembled. The straight legs of our staircase remain assembled. This will allow you to manoeuvre the staircase through the front door into its correct position.
If you have ordered MDF treads for the winder box then you MUST NOT use standard wood screws. Using normal screws designed for hard or softwood can cause the MDF to bulge and eventually split.
For MDF treads and risers, a slightly different approach is needed. No pre-drilled holes are needed for MDF, as it is recommended to use special MDF screws. These have the added benefit of not splitting the MDF board, which can occur when drilling pilot holes or using unsuitable screws. The secret of the MDF screw lies in its structure; a serrated thread means it cuts cleanly through the board without bulging or splitting the wood.
Stairworld sell a number of products to finish your staircase. Remember if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us about your staircase finish. We are a friendly company and you can telephone us on 01422 413770.
