It's hard to say without more details.
Is it a single flight or the whole of a 3 floor house,
is it off the shelf or bespoke design.

I just did a small flight and a landing which had 3 bespoke turned posts and hand made curved handrail and it came to about £900.

Sounds a fair bit to me but as already said,what did it consist of ? Getting other quotes for the work is the best way to find out if its expensive or not!

Hi a standard flight should take a day or so to fit and with the newels cost at most £700.00 ish fitted , but non standard can cost up to thousands if stainless steel, hardwood or sometimes even glass is used this is the expensive materials
Hope this helps .
