How much?

Postby mrsbling » Sat Oct 13, 2007 2:36 pm


How much would it cost to have new handrail, posts and spindles fitted?

Obviously I only need a ball park figure for parts and labour.

Stairs are straight up - 13 stairs (approx 3.5 metres) with a return at top of stairs of 1.85 metres.

Currently have hardboard/metal frame handrails which will be removed. Would like somthing similar to the attached image that I can paint white.

Any rough price guides would help.

Many thanks
