Stiffening a stair case in lords wood Southampton.
This stair case in a property in lordswood, Southampton had become springy and was creaking, the glue originally used had degraded and the wedges were loose, the joining of the treads to the risers could have been done better, only three screws used. Most customers assume that a new stair case is required, this is not the case. Comprehensive use of blocks glued and screwed from underneath solves the problem. The lordwood area of Southampton seems to have a lot of creaking stair cases, this is the fifth stair case I have silenced on that particular estate. Considering that the properties are circa 1970s I can only assume that the stair cases were factory made as cheaply as possible and the glues used of inferior grade.
