A Brief History

Brief history and description

When close friends & skilled craftsmen Craig Abbott & Mike Wade first began their joinery careers little did they know they would be the pioneers of a home improvement industry. After starting out in 1996 with some help from the Prince’s Trust and working across all aspects of joinery, Craig & Mike identified a niche market for a complete service for the design, supply and installation of bespoke pre-finished staircase renovations and new flights and developed the methods and techniques which have become the industry standard. As our business has grown so has our team and our ambition. Our hand-picked workforce has grown to 5 fitting teams, all trained in-house and including a network of family members spanning 3 generations of the Abbott & Wade families from step sons & fathers to cousins & in-laws.

Meet ‘Winston Wolfe’: Aftercare at Abbott-Wade

Winston Wolfe was the famous ‘fixer’ from Pulp Fiction who defines his role with the line, ‘I solve problems’. We have no need for this Harvey Keitel character, instead we have Adam – our Abbott-Wade equivalent (only much less intimidating and far more friendly). Affectionately known to his friends as ‘Wiggy’, Adam’s career started in cabinet making – a trade which demands a keen eye for detail. His passion for renovating camper vans and building durable, quality longboards (skateboards to you and I) in his spare time has honed his ability to adapt his carpentry skills to solve almost any problem. All of this makes him the ideal perfectionist for the position of Abbott-Wade’s resident ‘Fixer‘, or Aftercare Fitter to give him his official title.
