Staircases

A F Jones Stonemasons are specialists in all forms of stone stairs, internal & external environments, and including cantilever stairs projects.  Various types of stair are covered further down this page.  

Service
Our standard service includes advice, design (including structural design), templating, detailing, manufacture, delivery and installation.  All of our stairs are manufactured direct from raw stone block at our production yard in Ipsden, Oxfordshire. 

Design & geometry
For larger or complex projects, we will draw & produce stairs using 3D drawing and manufacturing techniques.  This will ensure exact fit-up and optimum approvals process.   For smaller projects, our templating service is often needed to verify all key dimensions.

It is rare that there are not interfaces to coordinate & detail before production can begin. We can assist with advice on balustrade interfaces, nosing detailing, soffit jointing, landing interfaces, tread anchorage options, and all associated topics.

Stone Type & Extent
A variety of stones can be selected, in either limestone or sandstone, but we advise that you avoid softer stones for stairs due to wear, or structural integrity.  Often the stone used for the stair is also used for adjacent stone flooring which we also supply & fit.
