New Stair and Handrail Washington Twp NJ






These folks were real happy with their New Stair and Handrail in Washington Township NJ. This job was a very pleasant experience from beginning to end. This couple was so nice, and considerate. A real pleasure to work for. They got my number from an old school buddy, Doug Houston, who did all the interior trim you see. Crown molding, raised panels, chair rail, new door trim, and bigger base throughout. As you can see from the photos, that's why we used to call him "The Man." He's a great trim carpenter and an excellent craftsman.

Painted box newels with mahogany post caps, and painted square balusters, and mahogany handrail really makes a big difference when walking into their foyer now. With all the trim details around it, the stair is the focal point it should be instead of the eyesore it used to be. If you're tire of that eyesore in your entranceway, and want to re-do your stairway the way the builder should have done it the first time, then give me a call, text, or email to set up your FREE appointment with Ron. If you need someone to install your New Stair and Handrail for you in New Jersey, I'd be glad to meet with you, whether you're living in Washington Twp, Sewell, Glassboro, Harrison Twp, Woolwich, Gloucester, Deptford, Turnersville, or Voorhees.

Iron Balusters Huntingdon Valley PA








          Here's a nice example of what's possible with Iron Balusters in Huntingdon Valley PA. This customer had just bought this nice house but wanted to "freshen up the place a bit" before she moved in. The builder grade wood balusters "had to go." She wanted to add some elegance to her new house, (not to mention the great added value when selling the property), without breaking the bank. And swapping out the old wood balusters for new iron pieces is a great way to do that. The existing posts and handrail were in good shape and installed well originally, and she liked them, so we kept them in place. We went over several design choices that were possible, given the spaces she was working with, and we, okay, she, came up with this. It's a nice look, not too busy, not too austere, and gives you a nice visual throughout the foyer/hallway area of the house. She went with satin black, which is a good universal color, for most people, especially if you don't know for sure how long you're going to be living in a particular house. Oil rubbed bronze, oil rubbed copper, continue to be very popular color choices as well.

       So, if you're tired of your old, wooden balusters, that may be loose, or chipped, or broken, or just not the look you want for your home anymore, give me a call, text, or email. If you live in Huntingdon Valley, or any of the surrounding towns, like Rockledge, or Southampton, or Willow Grove, Dresher, Horsham, Glenside, Abington, Feasterville, or Richboro, I'd love to install your new Iron Balusters for you and give your home that touch of elegance you've been looking for.

Just replaced builder-grade painted balusters with Iron Balusters in Mullica Hill NJ. Customer saw a design she liked somewhere in the internet galaxy, (might have been Pinterest), and asked me if she could have the same. So, we cut out all the old wood, and installed her new iron balusters. Installation took us two days. 200 balusters removed and replaced and secured in place. What a difference the iron makes with the overall look and feel as you walk in her house now. She loves it, and I must say, I agree with her. She opted for the iron shoes top and bottom of each baluster. Not everyone does that. Many pictures you see with Iron Balusters, there are no shoes up top. Just a different look. If you've been considering replacing your old wood balusters with Iron Balusters, give me a call. I do a lot of work in South Jersey, including in and around Mullica Hill, Glassboro, Washington Twp, Turnersville, Deptford, Gloucester Twp, etc.
