Customer Location: Ballydesmond Co. Cork
I had almost succumbed to the fact that I wasn't going to be able to put in my dream stairs as I was told what I wanted wasn't possible. One final attempt with a random google search and I found AJD. Being from Ballydesmond, Co.Cork I had never heard of AJD but going by the impressive photos on the website and facebook page, I knew that this was worth some further investigation. We entered Drumdowney, Slieverue into google maps and took a road trip to meet Alan and his team in their workshop. Alan couldn't have been more helpful and genuinely in tune with what I wanted and my overall vision. On route home that evening, we visited a similar stairs AJD had done previously to put our minds at ease (as we had never heard of AJD or didn't know anyone who had used them previously). I sent Alan some pictures that I had found on Pinterest, the same ones that other stairs makers told me were non runners for my available budget. Straight away Alan had suggestions and we agreed on a design, a price and a timeframe which suited us both. From start to finish AJD were professional and Alan's attention to detail is second to none. I think that is what sets him apart. The stairs took about 3 days to fit and you would never know that there was any building work taking place in the hallway - the team left the floor cleaner than when they had arrived. We honestly cannot recommend AJD enough and we would be happy to talk to anyone who is interested in learning more.
Thanks again, we are thrilled!
2 / Floating European oak stairs with led lighting and glass balustrade
Middleton , Cork
We recently renovated our house and decided on a new floating stairs. We investigated a few suppliers but on meeting Alan of AJD stairs, visiting some of his projects, comparing the value for money and the quality product he delivered, we engaged Alan to do the job.
From the outset his planning, attention to detail, and on-going communication with us and the builder facilitated a very professional and smooth run installation. Alan himself is hands on with a team of well trained professional tradesmen arriving on time as promised and delivering a superb end product.
Suffice it to say we are delighted with our cantilever oak stairs and have no hesitation in recommending Alan and his company to any prospective new customers.
3 / White oak stairs with inset glass balustrade and led lighting
When I was renovating my own home I knew from the beginning that I wanted the stairs to be one of the main features in the house. I wanted a bespoke stairs and landing area with oak and glass and also incorporating a void looking down over the hall below.
I asked around and AJD Stairs came highly recommended to me by many people. From the moment I contacted Alan I knew he was the person to work with on this project. I told him the design I wanted and he sent us to view a similar stairs and landing area in a neighbour’s home. I had seen his work online and was very impressed. I went to view the stairs and there was no question, it was exactly what I was looking for. Our neighbours could not recommend Alan highly enough.
From 1st contact to completion of the project Alan was so professional in all his dealings with me. Very informative and helpful with any questions or queries I had. At the end of our project we were in a rush to be in the house for Christmas, Alan went above and beyond to make sure our stairs was in place and that the glass was fitted in the stairs. Alan highly recommended getting child gates made to match the stairs. The gates are also made of oak and glass and match perfectly. The gates can be easily lifted off and do not take from the look of the stairs.
I am delighted with the stairs and landing and they really give the hallway the wow factor I was looking for.
Alan and his team are very professional, polite and fantastic craftsmen.
Having recently set up my own Interior Design business DS Interior Design I look forward to working with Alan on many more projects in the future.
I highly recommend AJD stairs for anyone looking for a stairs in their home or business.

Sheeted wall panelling
Kilmacow, Co. Kilkenny
We contacted Alan about designing and manufacturing a new staircase for our house. He had previously manufactured and installed stairs at two of our friends’ houses so we already knew his work was amazing. I sent him some ideas through email as we are living in Australia. From the very beginning Alan was so helpful. He understood what we were looking for. He sent us through some ideas he had that would make the whole project look better. I was so happy with this as he was able to see our vision. Once we finalized the designs Alan explained how the work would be completed. He explained exactly what he was going to do. This put our minds at ease as we were very nervous about the whole project as we were not there ourselves in person to see the works going on. He gave us regular updates and sent through photos of the works as they were going on.
When we arrived home at Christmas I was thrilled with the stairs. The panelling on the walls, the shelving and seating area under the stairs are just fantastic. Front he minute we walked in through the front door we couldn’t stop smiling. He had done exactly what he said he was going to do and the whole thing was as I had pictured it would be. We were so impressed with the attention to detail and the paint work is outstanding.
It was a fantastic experience all round and I can highly recommend Alan and his team to anyone without hesitation.
