Bisca in Balustrades Feature for Home Building & Renovating May 2016

Bisca are in May’s issue of Homebuilding & Renovating in a balustrades feature article.

Our clients had embarked on an ambitious project to totally restore and update a substantial 1960’s suburban villa.

They were happy with the overall shape of the staircase, which was structurally sound, but wished to replace the traditional outdated timber balustrade. Made of dark stained wooden spindles, the balustrade absorbed light and dominated the stair and landing gallery.

During our survey we discovered the bottom three treads were non-compliant with building regulations. We took the opportunity to solve the compliance issue and create a beautiful new feature base to the staircase at the same time.

The stair was totally reclad in pale Oak and finished with a hand forged, blackened ornate balustrade which continues up the staircase and along the landing edges. The balustrade is capped by a hand carved oak handrail with a scroll end.

To see this project on our website seach for 4472. You can also find it in our before and after section.
