Skilled in the trade of installing stairs and railings, these service professionals must follow industry standards and codes, not only for your safety, but for the investment and increased value if you decide to sell your home in the future.

Project/Sales Manager
A sales person or project manager is not just someone who can help you select the best stair or railing products, but should be a person willing to plan, measure, help to design and manage the manufacturing and installation process.

Computerized Technology
3D aided computer design is used today to assist with the efficiency and accuracy of information along with the custom design of your projects.

Find out what kind of coverage you are getting in a warranty. Do your homework and compare programs to ensure best protection for your investment.

Understand that there are certain risks inherent with any home renovation project. You’ll want to minimize risks and interference with the project and relationship between contractor and homeowner. Contractor insurance provides protection for both sides.

Company history
A service pro or company that has been in business over several years is more likely to provide you with peace of mind. Stability and business reputation can help to reassure your choice of contractor who can get the job done right.

A company that is affiliated with top designers, architects and builders, that uses a team approach, is a good option. References in regards to experience, service and expertise will confirm your hiring choices.

Facility Tour
Know where your products are being manufactured and ask for a facility tour if possible. This will give you confidence that the company is helping to minimize your costs by not using a middleman.

Confidential, reliable service is as important as excellence in fulfilling the promise of quality workmanship.

Timely response
Your service pro should provide estimates on price and completion dates to ensure customer satisfaction. This will result in a positive reputation and reviews for the pro, along with client referrals.
