    Couldn’t ask for a better service. Chris kept in touch & set a date to attend. He text the day before to confirm he would be attending, and despite the long distance, turned up exactly when he said he would. Such a friendly guy and did a fabulous job. He said that he could only aim to get 80% of the creaks from our old staircase, but managed to get it 100% creak-free! Also advised not to replace our existing treads (some were cracked) as the quality was far better than the ‘modern’ replacement. Whole staircase completed within the same day.
    Couldn’t fault his work and would definitely recommend him to anyone.

  • Creaking staircase

    My stairs are brilliant!!

    This house was built in the 1930s, the top two stairs were creaking and sagging. This was complicated by having a plastered ceiling in the cupboard underneath.

    Truth be told, the stairs creaked from the both step to the top, but the top two steps were the worry in case they gave way.

    I posted the job and Chris responded.

    My experience, no fuss, no drama, sent him the pictures and he gave me a quote without visiting. A fixed price, no quibble or “well it may be more”.

    Just a warning; he does stairs; he doesn’t do wardrobes, doors, floorboards; he does stairs and he is good at it.

    Arrived prompt on the day, left him to it, and was finished when he said he would. No fuss, no drama; clean, tidy; pleasant and with a good old-fashioned can-do attitude to the job with pride in his work.

    Not a squeak in the stairs, weeks later going up and down and not a squeak; thank you Chris.

    I would recommend him any day.

    (By the way, the plastered ceiling was undamaged)

Ours is a 3 storey Victorian townhouse and he completely renovated our horrendously squeaky and unsafe staircase. He explained what he was doing and our staircase no longer squeaks and groans! Great experience having you do the work for us Chris thank you

    Outstanding job, knowledgeable, fairly priced, quick and efficient. Can't ask for more

  • Fix creaking stairs and fit new skirting board beading

    I posted a job to fix a staircase in my town house. The bottom stair had almost collapsed and every other stair tread creaked alarmingly. As there was only access from above, it was going to be a "hard to fix" job - so very few Tradesmen were interested, despite me contacting a number and asking for a quote. However Chris's speciality is stairs and he contacted me to request the work as he was confident that he had a solution.

    Chris was completely professional from the start - I could see that from the way he contacted me, asked for photos in advance and got to really understood the issues before he travelled.

    He then turned up on time, and spent 7 hours shoring up the faulty steps and screwing / gluing all steps and risers in place. He did a fabulous job and none of the steps creak anymore! I am 100% satisfied with his work.

    I would absolutely recommend Chris to you - he probably isn't the cheapest, but he is a staircase specialist and will fix your problems whatever they are. Its a fixed price job for the work, parts and travel. On top of this, Chris is a real nice guy and we had a good chat during his visit.

    100% recommended!

  • Squeaky staircase

    HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! I used Chris 6 months+ ago to fix my (very) squeaky staircase. Literally every single step made a noise, which was over and above an everyday squeak. I can honestly say that not one of them makes the slightest noise now. Thanks so much Chris I am over the moon :)

  • Stairs - stabilise, potentially replace

    I am so impressed with the work Chris recently completed on my very unstable stairs. They are now completely stable and I am a little in awe at the difference! Chris was incredibly efficient with time and very tidy. Not a speck of sawdust to be seen. Highly recommended!

  • Repair broken step (internal staircase)

    Chris was the only person who responded to our work and I’m glad that was the case. He arrived at the stated time and happily waited as we were having a new carpet fitted upstairs. The workmanship was excellent and he didn’t leave any mess behind. Would definitely recommend both on his friendliness and workmanship.

  • Creaky stairs

  • Squeaky staircase!

    Thank you so much to Chris who did a fantastic job on our 2 flights of stairs. He did everything from above, no mess no fuss, no need to rip off plasterboard - a thought which we were dreading and other stair companies said was unavoidable! Every single stair received a top quality makeover and there isn’t a single squeak or creak. He was easy to communicate with and got the job finished in great time.

    Would 100% recommend Chris, can’t fault him!

  • Staircase repair

    Chris is extremely experienced and skilled in his field of work. He quoted for the work and when I accepted the competitive and reasonable quote, he booked a convenient time to carry out the work. Chris kept in touch and always responded to phone calls and messages.
    He arrived on time on the agreed date and immediately started working. He has all the tools to carry out the work, he setup a little work area outside the house where he did all the wood cutting, no mess inside the house.
    Chris is fast, efficient and in my opinion, takes a lot of pride and care in his work. He is polite, well mannered, good around kids and worked around us walking up and down the stairs.
    Chris stated from the start that wooden staircases will always have some noise as they move but he aims to reduce the noise as much as possible. He estimated that he will reduce around 85% of the squeaking noise and fully strengthen the stairs.
    An opinion shared by both myself and my wife is that the squeaking noise has been reduced by 95+% and the stairs feel extremely strong now.
    Thank you very much Chris, absolute pleasure doing business with you. I highly recommend Chris for this type of work.

  • Repair 8 squeeky steps. Laminate 13 steps.

    No doubt about it, I agree with all the other feedback stating that Chris is a very friendly and likeable tradesman. He is - but I do have to be honest. I needed 8 squeaky steps repaired and when I spoke to Chris initially, he informed me that he would do a full staircase survey at a cost of £399.00. My staircase was bare. No carpet coverings or anything to take up. Although expensive, I accepted his quote because as well as some plywood, I honestly expected him to be on the job for at least half a day, and that the survey would consist of each step being taken up, and things examined from underneath, followed by the relevant and nuts, bolts and screws tightened. However, Chris took a look and said all the stairs needed was to glue and screw a sheet of plywood against each riser which he did. It took 2 hours. This has definitely stopped the squeaks, but it was a very simple repair in the end, and to me far too expensive baring in mind the time it took and the effort involved. None of my steps or risers were replaced as some other people have had. The following week, I had some other tradesmen in to lay flooring on the staircase. They added more of the same plywood on top of each riser as they needed to "square off" each step. They said they would have charged no more than £150.00. Yes the steps have stopped squeaking, but I do think Chris should think about tapering his prices to take into account the level of work and effort needed for each job.

    Christopher Ward Joinery Services's reply:

    Every job is unique. Some take a few hours some a whole day. Yhe objective of the job was to eradicate creaks and squeeks which i did. I also made a survey of the whole staircase this i do in every case. The price i give is a set price which was agreed prior to the commencement of any work being carried out and considering it included a 400 mile round trip and an over night stay in a b & b i feel the price was very reasonable
    I am truly sorry you feel the way you do
    Many thanks

  • Replace or repair staircase

    Excellent job and transformed our stairs from squeaky to virtually silent. We were considering replacing the whole staircase so really pleased that we have avoided that.

  • Fix creaky weak stairs

    I have lived with creaky stairs for 15 years, they gradually began to feel like they were going to give way.
    2 hours work from Chris and my stairs are perfect, I am naturally quite skeptical but his work is amazing.
    He was also on time, in fact he was early.
    Really polite and warm, I would recommend 100%.
    Many thanks Chis.

  • Cricking Stairs

  • Squeaky steps on top winder part & cracks

    Initially I was told that steps repair can only be done from the bottom by couple of other trademens and my lounge plaster board wall should be knocked off, repair the steps and close the wall. But i have given myself a second chance hiring Christopher Ward who told it can be done from the above and yes he is correct. He came on time, repaired whole staitcase and completed my job. I am very much pleased by his work. Here after if I have or get any problems with staircase I will give a call immediately without second thought to Chris and get work done. I would like to refer him to anyone who asks me. Thanks Chris.


  • Repair of staircase risers

    Chris is one of the most polite and trades knowledgeable people I have had the pleasure to meet. He explained everything in detail with a great deal of knowledge.
    He worked very efficiently and made sure everything was complete and clean before he left.

    I have to say the stairs no longer creak or make any noise and they were bad before Chris came.

    Hiring Chris to repair our stairs was the best money we have spent during our house refurbishment. It's a shame he doesn't do other things as we would certainly hire him - I wish every tradesman was like him.

  • Stair tread

    Excellent work, would happily recommend. A trademan who takes pride in his work

  • Stairs

    Chris, thank you for doing such a fantastic job.

    I will be recommending Chris to anyone who needs work on their stairs. He arrived on time, worked really hard, repaired my wormy stairs, pointed out further damage on a tread I didn't even realise was broken, and then did remedial work on all the stairs, to prevent further damage in the future.

    Endlessly cheerful, it was such a treat to meet a tradesman who clearly loves his job.

    Hire Chris Ward NOW!

I would highly recommend him to anyone, we are so happy with the job he did - and so glad we found him through

  • Fix squeaking stairs from above

    The job was planned, communicated and completed brilliantly. Chris was punctual, friendly and approachable. He fixed 2 flights of stairs in just 5 hours. It feels like I'm having brand new stairs which are firm and solid when stopped on, most importantly all the annoying squeaking and creaking noise disappeared. A truly professional that specialised in stairs joinery. Many thanks Chris!

  • Repair stairs and replace some missing Skirting board p

    Excellent job, arrived punctually and gave a fair and reasonable price for the job. Very happily recommend him to anyone for similar work.!

  • Worn stair treads

    It can be so hard to find good tradesmen, but sometimes you can be really lucky and find exactly the right person for the job. For problem stairs that person is Chris. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone. He knows his trade, is enthusiastic about doing it and does it with great pride and skill. On top of that he is a really nice guy. Also, he travelled 190+ miles to fix my stairs and arrived on time. Don't just consider Chris for your job, just hire him, you wont regret it.

  • Carpet and stairs

    Positive outcome professional attitude throughout.

  • Stairs

    What a tradesman! If only all tradesman were like Chris. He was punctual, turned up at the time as arranged. Completed the work in a timely manner to a very high standard and most of all solved the problem of the annoying creaky stair case. Simply the best! Very highly recommended. Thank you Chris.

  • Staircase sagging

    We had a problem with a second flight of stairs and from the start of our communication with Chris he reassured us that the stair case was not going to collapse (which I was really worried about), we sent photos of the stairs so he could see what he would be dealing with and we quickly agreed a date and time to do the job. On the day Chris talked through the job he was going to do and explained how this would be done. Chris is really friendly and professional (loves to hum whilst he works which is actually lovely to hear), excellent workmanship and worked through until the job was finished. Will definately be having him back to work on the first flight of stairs which creak and need servicing. Would recommend him to other people.

  • Staircase / steps are creeking

    You know when you put up with creaking stairs for ages and then you think I MUST get this sorted. Well, I decided a few days before a new carpet was being fitted to hopefully end the noisy staircase. I posted on here and within a matter of minutes Chris was able to respond. His other reviews speak for themselves and I am so glad to say he really is as brilliant as other people say. Communication was fab and you will find a very hard working and hugely talented man. His traditional training and knowledge give you a real sense of calm. The carpet was installed a few days later and the entire hallway and staircase look lovely and also more importantly NO sound. Our home is 1950's but it is now like a new build because of the zero creaks. Chris has added value to our home and for that I can't thank him enough. Thank you Chris!!

  • Broken staircase

    I would highly recommend Chris. We had a dangerous staircase with broken steps and since he came none of them even squeak anymore. He had to change our initial appointment due to personal commitments but he was very upfront about it and told us straight away so we had no problem re-booking him for a later date.

  • Staircase

He gave a set price to complete the work and reassured me throughout. He arrived on time and worked hard. I didn't even notice him taking a lunch break. He explained what he was going to do before and was clean and tidy throughout. I would recommend him to all and also Chris gave me confidence in using Mybuilder again.

    Chris is the creaky stair fixing Wizard! My stairs were incredibly creaky and I assumed they would have to be replaced but found Chris on this site and I am so glad I did. He arrived yesterday when he said he would and set about fixing each stair, replacing what needed replaced (broken treads) strengthening the back plates and inserting lots of screws and glue. My stairs now don't creak at all. Its brilliant! The fixed price was good as well as you know right away how much it will cost. He worked really quickly and only took 3 hours to do the whole staircase. Pleasant guy to have working in your home as well. Thanks Chris.

    Chris did an amazing job... He arrived on time and was cheery and helpful from start to finish. Unfortunately for him he arrived when I was having a complete meltdown about a different job that had been botched but he met my grumpiness with a smile and loads of helpful advice. Chris regardless of what others may say .. My dog loved your singing !!! As for the stairs.. I now have not a single creak or groan it's like living in a different house and I couldn't be happier... I would be delighted to recommend Chris to anyone and he was a pleasure to have in the house... Thanks Chris

  • Floor repairs

    Chris Ward proved that he covers the whole of the UK by his willingness to drive up to Glasgow to correct our creaking stairs and landing. Having departed early morning from his base near Hull, he arrived with us precisely within his predicted time slot, and after a quick coffee he set to work, continuing without further break until the job was done. The stairs and landing are now perfectly quiet where before they were so bad they would wake up anyone sleeping upstairs. Just as Chris states, the quoted price is what you pay, even though he would not know the exact extent of the problem before arriving. I would add that he is a friendly and cheerful character who obviously is happy in his work, and I would have no problems with hiring him again in future if the need arose.

    Chris receives top marks for service. He arrived before the appointed time considering the distance he travelled. Chris was extremely polite, friendly and did exactly what he came to do.

  • Broken step on staircase

  • Fixing wooden step ASAP

    Chris was punctual, and took time to explain the work he would be doing very clearly. I am pleased we did not go for a quick fix of the step and appreciated his advice in terms of long-term maintenance of the staircase rather than a quick-fix as was about to be newly carpeted, and it made sense for all steps to be checked.

    He was friendly, very tidy and made a meticulous job of checking and repairing the staircase.

    Very happy with the service and would highly reccomend.

  • Staircase repairs

    We posted on here last week looking for someone to repair our staircase and in just over a week our stairs are now repaired. Two broken stairs and every single stair was noisy. Chris replied to us along with other joiners and instantly his reply seemed to stand out from the rest. Yes he informed us we would get cheaper quotes but without a doubt reading reviews and his approach along with his experience as a joiner filled us with confidence. And the distance in travel wasn't too much trouble for Chris. My stairs feel secure and are so much more quiet. It's made us realise how bad they were before and can't believe it's the same staircase. He's truly done an amazing job as well as all his advice and recommendations. If you can afford to hire Chris to repair your stairs then you won't be disappointed. A lovely guy and truly passionate about his work!
    Thank you

    Very happy with the work done by Chris. Very friendly, arrived on time, has a knowledge about the stairs. Could not ask more. Job well done. I would definitely recommend him.

  • Repair cellar staircase

  • To repair or replace steps on stairs

  • staircase

    Results of the job: Before Chris our house was plagued with a creaking, broken staircase - no-one used the stairs at night for fear of waking up the whole house. Every step (and I do mean every step) emitted moans and groans. It began to get us down. Then Chris arrived and tamed our badly behaved staircase. Tonight our home is a happy home! Not one creak can be heard as we go up and down the stairs. Therefore, I wholeheartedly recommend Chris to you if your stairs need mending.
    Professionalism: Chris knows what he's doing and gets the job done with no fuss. He let me know ahead of time that the end result of the repairs wouldn't necessarily be nice to look at but that didn't matter as it will be covered with carpet. He set a fair price, communicated with me ahead of his arrival, told me what he could and would be doing, arrived on time and did the job he said he would. I can't fault him.
    One more thing: If it matters to you who comes into your home to do work (and to me, as a woman, it does matter) then Chris is your man. A nicer, more trustworthy chap you couldn't hope to meet. And to me that means an awful lot. If I ever have a creaking staircase in the future I would call Chris straight away.

  • Stairs

    STAIRS - I tried for two weeks to get a quote to fix my stairs and could not even get a reply from a tradesman! Chris was different. He replied to my request within a minute and we set-up an appointment there and then. He explained that the distance he had to travel was his choice and he had no problem with it. He is also an extremely personable character and easy to talk to on the phone and in person.

    I received a confirmation text the night before the job and Chris arrived promptly on the day! Despite being on the road for 4+ hours, he was right into the task. I had two problem treads and a slight sag on a riser, with the whole stair and landing creaking. It was like being on a man-of-war at sea in the old days! Chris fixed and tightened the lot and it's more like the space station now, you float over the floor! He also lifted and re-fitted the carpet for me. Although he explains that he is not proficient in this, mine went back just fine.

    We also had a good old chin wag as he worked and he gave me loads of ideas for doing up the house.

    It is a fair bit of money and could make people think twice but I've paid a lot more and got much less than he supplied! Money well spent. I would recommend Chris to anyone with stair problems and I already have another mate who needs his skills!

    Thanks Chris

  • Fix creaking stairs.

    Apologies to Chris for the late posting of this review but to confirm I am very happy with the work carried out. Chris did a great job repairing our creaking stairs, and after having new carpet laid they are now totally silent. If you have creaking stairs then Chris is the man for the job.

    Chris was such a pleasure to hire from start to finish! He's a true professional and a really happy soul also. He's an amazing tradesman, tidied up after himself and kept everything nice and covered during the job. I hope I don't have to use him again but would thoroughly recommend him to any of my friends.

  • 3 internal doors to be fitted

  • Replace staircase

    Chris was very prompt and professional in responding to the job posted. My initial concern was the distance he would have to travel but he assured me he worked countrywide and that he specialized in staircases. He was able to give a fixed price, which I provisionally accepted pending other quotes.

    Two other tradesmen visited but I am still awaiting their quotations. In the meantime Chris was available to start the job on the Tuesday before Christmas and feeling very comfortable from my telephone conversations that he knew what he was talking about, he was duly hired.

    He arrived on time and was extremely courteous and respectful of our home. The job was completed within a few hours, with minimal disruption and the decor remained intact (other tradesmen had stated there would be a requirement to remove some plasterboard and make good).

    I can highly recommend Chris for attitude and professionalism, however, his 'dum-di-da' singing service while he works will not trouble the X Factor contestants! (Only joking and in fairness he does warn you beforehand!)

  • repair to staircase

    Chris's very positive, friendly and reassuring attitude over the phone was matched by his approach to his work. Every moan, groan and creek ever experienced on my stairs have gone. Each time i go up or down the stairs i am in awe of how slient it is and how secure it feels.

    He arrived on time, carried out the work and left everywhere cleaner and tidier than before!! Thank you!

  • 7 Inernal doors fitting

    Thanks Chris.

  • Replace staircase

    Our staircase was very springy and creaky. Chris came within a few days of making contact, replaced a broken tread and tightened all the others so that the stairs are now virtually solid. No mess, no redecorating - wonderful!

    PS. I left this for a week or so to see if the stairs started to work loose again but they haven't - very happy.

  • Internal doors

    I am very pleased with the work carried out by Chris which has been completed to a very high standard and on time. Chris is friendly and professional. He was helpful and understanding when discussing some minor fitting issues. I would be very happy to recommend Chris.

  • Stairs and landing

  • Fitting interior doors

    Chris has done a great job fitting two new half glazed doors to my living room, and refitting an existing door to the bedroom. His workmanship is excellent and his prices very reasonable. He is also a lovely person and a complete pleasure to be around.

    Chris did a fantastic job , really honest professional tradesman , he travelled a long way but came when he said he would and phoned and texted to keep us informed of his journey progress , very good at what he does would use him again no problem and also recommend him at the drop of a hat , total opposite of the cowboys who fitted my loft ladder the wrong way round to start with ! Well done Chris ! You Rock !

  • 7 doors to be installed throughout house

    Chris contacted me almost straight away with an extremely reasonable price. I offered him the job upon reading his reviews and I am so glad I did. What a lovely, honest, trustworthy and genuine man. He's done an absolutely amazing job on the doors and I can't credit him enough. Cracking sense of humour and so friendly. Very thorough and cleaned up after himself throughout the house. Five stars for you Chris. Thank you so much. I'll find you some more jobs and be in touch! x

  • Fix Squeaky Stair

    Best money i have ever spent on our house and over the past 4 years £10k has been spent.

    Stairs have been squeaky since moving in and this is a job that has always been put off.
    Previous people have said they need replacing - not Chris, they are perfect now no squeaks at all.

    Chris kept in regular contact before arriving and turned up when he said he would.

    Would suggest if you have squeaky stairs contact Chris.

    100% reliable.

  • staircase check + 1 step faulty

    Excellent job and excellent experience. Chris was on time regardless that he needed to drive nearly 4 hours to get to my place. He was professional and friendly. The current state of the staircase exceeded my all expectations. It feels like it's made of stone now ;-) It feels very solid and doesn't squeak anymore.
    Chris is an excellent specialist. Highly recommended.
    Thank you, Chris.

  • Staircase repair

    Unsurprisingly, as per all Chris' feedback, the standard of work carried out is far beyond our expectations. A creaky 1930s staircase that had some serious damage to the top step, is now the most solid structure in the house! Chris was a proper gent and genuinely passionate about what he does. I am sure he could charge more for his work, it is of the highest standard. Thanks Chris, we can't recommend you enough.

  • enlarge loft hatch and fit loft ladder

    Brilliant. Quick. Prompt. He fitted a new loft hatch and ladder - which was much harder than it sounds as the new hole was in no ways the same as the existing hole. He did the impossible and made it fit. He made it beautiful. He somehow lifted and secured it into place all by himself without fuss or mess. Too heavy for one man to lift he still fixed it into a hole 3 meters of the ground. I suspect he is magic. I know he is good. Strong recommend.
