We have dealt with Lincoln and his staff for many years. Ackworth House supplied and installed a beautiful solid timber staircase for us and made the whole process very straight forward. Lincoln as always was very easy to deal with and provided an excellent service. A big thank you to Lincoln and his team.

Paul, Whangarei - Builder

We chose a standard stair design from Ackworth House and then adapted it to meet our particular requirements for our new home. We wanted the stairs to be a key feature of the house and Ackworth met our expectations in every respect. We were delighted with the result and found Ackworth and its sub-contractors helpful and professional to deal with. We have no hesitation in recommending Ackworth House.
