Add caption

Here's a great example of Custom Stairs and Rails and Iron Panels and Balusters designed to show the true beauty of the circular staircase, installed by professional Installers in Evesham NJ. With 30 years of experience in the field, we can tackle your most challenging jobs. If you can dream it, we can create it.

The homeowner here had replaced all her trim with stained hickory years earlier, and wanted the stairs and rails to match. She searched online and found me, (she typed in something like "best stair guy on the planet" or something like that lol)...we met with her and her husband, and showed her some options, and this is what she decided on. She saw a job we had done earlier, and said "that's it, that's what I want!" I love when a customer is certain about what they want. It makes my job much easier. Some folks want me to make the decision for them, and I will, but, it just takes the pressure off me if they are decisive, and have done some homework prior to meeting with me.

Note: If you're not as decisive, that's ok, we'll help you narrow down the options to what best suits your foyer, personal taste, style and budget.

To me the more educated the consumer is about stairs and rails, the better....

That is not to say, you must research for years before calling me, I'm just saying, it's better if you did at least 1 or 2 searches on Google images, or Pinterest, or someplace like that, before our appointment to get acquainted with what some of the possibilities are for your foyer/staircase.

By the way these are Tuscan Iron Panels in satin black with straight bars in between. This job took about a week to complete. And this particular job came in at under $20K. A bargain for the quality of materials, amount of work and expertise involved. (When house was built, the builder would have charged $35K for the same thing but with half the quality.)

And I think you get a lot of bang for the buck. I always say, "You're making your foyer look like a million bucks for less than $20K!!"

 So, if you're anywhere near Evesham NJ and surrounding towns, and you want your very own Custom Stairs and Rails and Iron Panels and Iron Balusters professionally designed and installed by artisan Installers, then be sure to send Ron an email at or call him direct at 215-694-5046 to book your FREE CONSULTATION.

Wood Handrail With Custom Tuscany Iron Baluster Supplier Installer Cherry Hill NJ

Twin Tuscany Panels

Totally New Foyer

Refinished Stair and New Handrail

Black Iron Panels

Overlooking Family Room

Satin Black Iron Panels

Tuscany Panels

Single Panel

If you're looking for a solution to your dated foyer, you may want to switch to  a Wood Handrail with some Custom Iron Panels And Balusters like we did here in Cherry Hill NJ.  A fellow contractor who does all kinds of flooring called me and said "I need some real handrails for my new house!......what can you do for me?" So I said " You won't believe this but I need some new flooring for my old house". So after a little.....ok a lot of haggling, he decided on this design, and I got all new floors throughout my house. Sometimes it's good to know other good contractors. Note the special design on the landing. Anyway, we've done lots of work for each other over the years, and it was funny that we both needed each others' expertise at about the same time. Up top we did two panels facing each other with a bar welded in the middle. There are multiple ways of working panels into your overall design. On the steps we did single panels every third tread or so. Iron panels are great, but just so you know, they tend to cost @ 10 times the price of a "normal" iron baluster which tends to be @ $8-$20 range.  These stairs were refinished and all new floors were installed throughout the house. As well as new moldings, raised panels, and beams in family room. So, if you're in Cherry Hill NJ or surrounding towns, and you're looking for some Custom Iron Panels and Balusters with your Wood Handrail, then give Ron a call at  his direct line 215-694-5046 or send an email to and set up your FREE CONSULTATION to discuss your options and your desired style and timelines.

Oversized Starting Newel Dark Stained Treads and Handrails Painted Balusters In Haddonfield NJ

Classic White Balusters And Trim

White Box Newels

Stained Treads And Handrails

Oak Stairs And Handrails

Oversized Starting Newel

 Here's another example of classic style, with your Oversized Starting Newel with Dark Stained Treads and Handrails and Painted Balusters in Historic Haddonfield NJ. 
 This was another designer/builder who saw a picture and asked to have it brought to life. We've done a lot of work in this town over the years. Definitely one of my favorites. The small town feel is everywhere. people are nice, the properties are nice, they tell me the schools are nice, the stairs are really nice, ok, ok, I'm a little biased. But seriously, it is a classic "Small Town America" town. Access to the big city less than a half hour away.
 To get this level of quality construction, you need a great team. You need a great architect, and a great builder, who brings in his best subcontractors which would include your foundation/concrete guy, framer, roofer/sider, hvac, plumbing, insulation, drywall, paint, flooring, trim, stairs and rails, kitchen, tile, electrical, audio/security, landscaping, and paving guys, to name most of the contractors needed to build your high-quality home. And a designer can really help you bring all of it together so the whole house looks "connected" for lack of a better term. So it all flows. 
  If you need help with any part of finding your "team" we can help you with that. Our specialty is Stairs and Rails, and in the course of 30 years in the business, we've met many of the best subcontractors in the business and would gladly give you our recommendations for whatever trade you would need if it was a small enough project that you didn't need a builder or GC for.
  But if you're in need of your own Oversized Starting Newel, and you want Dark Stained Treads and Handrails with Painted Balusters and you live in Haddonfield NJ, or surrounding towns like Moorestown, Haddon Heights, Cherry Hill, Marlton, or Medford, then give Ron  a call at his cell at 215-694-5046, or shoot him an email at and set up your FREE consultation and estimate and get all your questions answered.

New Construction Shore House Custom Stairs Box Newels and Handrails Ventnor NJ

Pictured is a New Construction Shore House project with Custom Stairs, Box Newels and Handrails in Ventnor NJ. This stair and rail was for a designer/builder in Ventnor who was building her own house. She saw a picture online and said “This is what I want”. So, that’s what she got. Classic look with stained treads and handrail and painted posts and risers and trim. I wish I could show rest of house, because she did a phenomenal job. I must say most, if not all designers are worth their salt when it comes to the wow factor. You can definitely tell when  home has been professionally decorated, versus one that‘s been done by homeowners
Classic Painted Box Newels And Balusters

Stained Hardwood Stairs And Handrails In Custom Ventnor Shore House

6 Bedrooms 7 bathrooms would be the perfect big family home or second home right on the beach in Ventnor. Lots of posts. lots of rails, lots of balusters .Lots of room for the family and friends. A pool out back adds to the fun. Nothing quite like living at the shore. For those who love the sea, surf, sand, boardwalk, fishing, sailing/boating, etc, this is the perfect vacation home or could be your main residence. If you're building a custom home give us a call, preferably before you need us. Meaning, the more notice we have the better. Many builders wait until they need the stairs and then start looking for a solution. Giving us a little more time, always helps. We have to bring in the lumber, work your stair into our shop's schedule, get it built, and get it delivered in a timely manner. All those steps take time. And the more time we have the better. There's nothing worse than getting the call from the frantic builder, who says that "We need stairs tomorrow". Sometimes we have to say "We'd love to help you, but we have customers who are expecting their stairs to be built today, and they called us in a timely manner, and we don't want to keep them waiting because you waited until the last minute to order stairs". We can usually move schedule around a bit and do what we can, but, please call ahead, and give us a little notice. If you're building  your New Construction Shore House or a  customer's dream home and you need Custom Stairs, Box Newels, and Handrails in Ventnor NJ, and surrounding towns like Margate, Longport, Ocean City, Atlantic City, or Brigantine, then give us a call at 215-694-5046, or send an email to to schedule your FREE consultation with Ron, who's been solving stair and handrail issues for builders and homeowners for almost 30 years.

Stair Manufacturer And Iron Baluster Installers In Medford NJ

Cherry Stained Hardwood Stairs
Hammered "S" Balusters

Handrail "Over The Post" Style

Complete Stair Replacement

Old Stairs Removed And New Stair Installed In Less Than Four Hours
If you're looking for the best Stair Manufacturer And Iron Baluster Installers in and around Medford NJ, then you're in the right place. I don't want to say this job was easy, but everything went so perfectly, it was amazing. I mean, the measurements always have to be spot on, but this house needed very little trimming or cutting of existing walls, or framing, or drywall. The stair has to be built exactly to site conditions to ensure it looking better than it did when house was brand-new, (which was not done properly, and is what we're here to fix). If you're looking to by-pass the builder/general contractor, and deal direct with the contractor doing the actual work, (and save 20%-50%), then give Ron a call on his personal cell phone at 215-694-5046 and ask him any questions you may have about your existing stair and handrail issues. If you are a general contractor, or home builder, we will work with you, if you work like us and treat homeowners like you would want to be treated, and always do the job right the first time, and have very high standards. We have a very small group of contractors/builders that we'll work with. Most are clowns, and are like the builder who built your house the first time, which is to say very badly, very crookedly, very cheaply, very shabbily, very shoddily....not sure if those are real words, lol. You can also email me photos of existing conditions to help speed up the consultation process At Hartman Stairs and Rails, we believe we're the best Stair Manufacturer and Iron Baluster Installers in and around Medford NJ, and surrounding towns like Voorhees, Cherry Hill, Moorestown, Medford Lakes, and Haddonfield.

Better Than Cable Modern Rail Installers Mt Laurel NJ

Mt Laurel Townhouse With Modern Cable Look For Half The Price

Strong Iron Tubing With Modern Hardwood Handrail

Clean Modern Lines

Round Iron Tubing More Kid-Friendly Than Cable

Round Tubing Safer Than Cable

5/8" Round Iron Tubing More Stable Than Cable

Continuous Rail From Top To Bottom

Up The Stairs And Around The Wall

 A great example of today's modern look with old-world craftsmanship with "Better Than Cable", Modern Rail Installers in Mt Laurel NJ. Everybody wants to jump on the cable rail bandwagon. I always say the same thing...I'm not a big fan. But, there are alternatives to cable. Like this rail system shown here. Square posts (that are strong, and sturdy and will outlast most homes they're in), with hardwood rail, and the 5/8" round tubing that isn't so harsh on the kids (like cable) who will inevitably end up playing on, or around, the railing. You know they will, like you did when you were kids. And the tubing won't loosen up and have to get re-tightened every six months like cable. And the tubing is cheaper than the outrageous prices for cable components. This couple just had a little one and they were looking for something modern, safe, sturdy, and reasonably priced. This fit the bill perfectly. They couldn't be happier. It was nice to work with someone who appreciated all that we did. We ended up doing homeowners brother's house as well. I'll post pictures of that job in next week or so as well. So, if you need your modern rail fix, but don't want to break the bank, then cut the cable, and go with Better Than Cable Modern Rail Installers in Mt Laurel NJ, and surrounding towns like Voorhees, Medford, Shamong, Mt Laurel, Evesham, Moorestown, or Cherry Hill, then be sure to call Ron at 215-694-5046 and schedule your FREE consultation.

Best Staircase And Railing Professionals in Marlton NJ

Starting From Basement Going Up

All New Stairs Built In Place

Railing Half-lapped Onto Landing Ceiling

Cherry Handrail With Painted Balusters

Cherry Box Newels With Painted Balusters

Heart-Pine Treads and Painted Risers

Hand-Built Custom Made-to-Fit Stairs

Graduated Baluster Bases (So Everything Lines Up)

Second Floor Landing

Custom  Removable Bookcases To Be Added Later
 Now here's an example of  the Best Staircase and Railing Professionals at work in Marlton NJ. This job took a while to complete. We were on-site for @ 2 1/2 weeks total. We had to start and stop a few times because of other work going on around us, flooring, paint, trim, etc. But, I must say the finished product is beautiful. Most times the stair sections are built in a shop and then transported to site and anchored in place. On this job we had to build each section in place, for multiple reasons, and then install the box posts and rails, and balusters. The heart pine treads and flooring are stunning. Not something you see everyday. And the cherry posts and rails with the white square-top balusters just brings it all together. This house was re-done from top to bottom. Basically an all new house. The railing half-lapped on ceiling, I think is one of the cooler features of this job...and the cherry column to match the box newels was a nice touch as well, if I may say so myself. So, if you're in search of the Best Staircase and Railing Professionals in Marlton NJ, and surrounding towns like Moorestown, Cherry Hill, Voorhees, Medford, and Evesham, be sure to give Ron Hartman a call at 215-694-5046 to schedule your FREE consultation and get help designing your own magnificent stair and rail upgrade.
