Residential Stair Railing
A staircase is one of the most prominent features of a home. It is the first thing that people see as they enter your home and it deserves to be as aesthetically pleasing as possible. A good-looking railing goes a long way towards making a homeowner feel more comfortable and confident about their space. Since stairs connect floors, it’s psychologically important to have a fantastic-looking rail design.
The importance of having an attractive and well-installed railing was first realized during Victorian times when people started building homes with increasingly large and grand staircases. The Victorians’ obsession with detail led them to want railings on their stairs to make them look perfect for all those who were invited into their homes.
Staircases and railings are seldom thought about from a design perspective, but really add a ton to a home. In some cases, an excellent staircase rail can increase property values! Fortunately, there are many different materials and styles that can fit any home’s aesthetic.
Commercial Stair Railing
Commercial rail systems tend to take a blend from both residential and industrial railing designs. Its important to have both a durable and fantastic-looking railing.
Depending on the situation though, there is a large difference between commercial and residential when it comes to stairs. Railing has different requirements based on local laws and government regulations. For example, commercial code can sometimes require a taller handrail than one installed in a home.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is my project too small?
If you have a couple of steps that attach your home to your porch or patio, likely the job is very small. We do have a minimum job size that we deal with, as it’s just not economical to do small jobs frequently. However, if it is in conjunction with another project, we’d be happy to work it in.
How much does stair railing cost?
That is quite a complex question with very many factors. There are 3 main variables that go into stair railing cost. materials (glass, metal, wood), length (size of your project), and difficulty (multiple corners, curves, or other complexities that need to be addressed with the railing). With rising costs of materials and shortages, we cannot give you a great per foot price at this time. Give us a call to talk about your project, and we’d be happy to ballpark what it might be.
What is a handrail?
A handrail sometimes called a banister is a grip for your hand that is mounted onto your railing system. Sometimes people confuse handrails with stair railings.
Do you replace entire staircases, including stairs?

Do you install modern stair railings?
Yes! Depending on the materials you are looking for, and the staircase you currently have, we can absolutely design a modern look for your project. For modern designs, glass railings look phenomenal. A cable railing in stainless steel is also an option, which looks phenomenal with stair tread.
Which factors are good indicators that my project will be more or less expensive?
Generally speaking, if your current staircase has a lot of corners, platforms, or curves, your project may incur extra costs. This is because the railing needs to follow the staircase, meaning material must now curve and plateau with your stairs. This means extra cutting and measuring for us to get it just right. The size of your job is a large indicator as well. If your job is small and not complicated, chances are you are looking at a very affordable bid depending on the materials you choose. During the COVID-19 pandemic, material costs have gone a little crazy. Keep in mind that we do not control the cost of materials, and some have skyrocketed.
