Darryl did a great job on this project that was long overdue. The old railing was already removed, and I had the materials, so he built and installed the bottom and top rails around the porch as well as down the steps to the posts, which he also installed. He then put in all the balusters. Everything is sturdy as ever, nice and level, and put together very nicely.

They referred to my house as the haunted house on my street. Hiring them was the remedy for that. Not only did they repair and replace rotted porch decks and railing and gutters, but reinforced both porches underneath and anchored the back porch to the house. I dealt with Bob a great guy, who was understanding of my situation and great to work with. I highly recommend them

This is the second time I've used this group and again, they did a fantastic job. I moved into a new home and the front steps didn't have a railing. I had the railing installed and it is absolutely gorgeous! They matched my columns perfectly and improved the look of the entrance. I also needed outlets in my kitchen. The kitchen came with 2 outlets for only 2 plugs. Well, one plug was taken by the stove's electric starter and the other one had one taken up by the refrigerator. I had those expanded to 4 each and then 2 outlets installed on the opposite wall by the kitchen island. Everything is perfect! The kitchen is now serviceable!

I called Bella Railings asking for an estimate and they sent over a sales person. He spent a little more time pitching their products and services than what I would have preferred, but he did a good job of explaining the advantages of their posts and railings over less expensive materials that a do-it-yourself or other contractor might use. He also explained in detail how the installation process works. The price quoted was a little higher than I had hoped for, but was in line with another estimate I had received. They offered one-years-same-as-cash financing, so that made it easier to move forward. I paid a $200 deposit. He told me the job would be scheduled in 4-to-6 weeks. About 4 weeks later, I got a phone call saying they could come the next day if it would suit. There was no need for anyone to be home. The arrived the next day after I left for work. I stopped home at lunch to check on progress, and by the end of the day they were done. Everything was installed in the way the salesman had described, and they left the porch and yard clean and in good shape. (After they left, I removed an old ramp up to the front porch - completing the make-over.) I am very satisfied with the end result.

Al arrived on time. He set up his tables in my garage, brought all the proper tools. He removed the old railings and handrails and discarded. Then he installed all the new railings & handrails, custom fitting where required. He brought his shop vac and cleaned up everything before he left. He provided the catalogues with the various styles of posts, railings, etc.and when I made my choice, he ordered the required amount and picked up the materials. I left the house to run errands several times while he was working because I found him to be trustworthy.

Rich was prompt and polite when giving me the estimate. He brought a photo album of many projects that his company has done, and even emailed me websites with pictures of different railings I was considering so I could make a more informed decision. The job turned out to be more complicated than they originally thought because of the angle of the steps, but they worked hard for two days to complete the project and it looks great! I am very satisfied with their professionalism and quality of workmanship.

A Dodge Neon can take you from Point A to Point B. A Rolls Royce can also take you from Point A to Point B. These new railings are definitely the Rolls Royce of porch railings. The old railings were 11 years old & had been painted two years beforehand. But they looked awful, especially for being painted in 2013. Something told me that this would be a frequent job as they were probably made of some cheap pine wood or composite wood & installed by a builder or sub-contractor who did a dubious job. So to replace them - what to do. Find them in similar wood that would pass muster with a condo board? Or use this company, who, made a presentation to the association years ago & had obtained blanket approval for the entire sub-division. Buying new wood might only solve the re-painting problem temporarily, and the cycle would begin again. I decided to bit-the-bullet & use these guys. I had an idea of the cost as a neighbor had them installed a few years ago. So after the 2-hour presentation, I kinda knew what the cost would be. I got the "Angie's List" subscriber discount, saving about $200. Having just sold another house with a few dollars in my pocket, I opted to pull the trigger. The salesman told me the installation would occur in 8 - 10 weeks, which was accurate. Their office called a few days prior to the day they set. Since I didn't have to be on-hand, the date didn't matter. I also didn't have to clear the porch, which made things easy. The installer arrived on-time & went about his work, my presence notwithstanding. I'm told that an assistant joined him later in the day as I had no need to stay there. When I returned, the job was complete & looked just fine. The installer left a bill for the final 2/3 I owed them (I paid 1/3 to the salesman). I have no doubt these will never require any maintenance & will outlast me. I just think it's somewhat pricey, relative to other enhancements I made to the house. But it was my choice & I pretty much knew the cost. I'm very satisfied with the work & final result.

From start to finish I had a good experience with Home Genius. When Daryl first came to my home in January to evaluate and give me an estimate he didn’t mind my questions and explained everything I asked about. He even was great and worked with me when I had to reschedule the date he came to do the appointment twice. I felt no pressure and appreciated his patience. He was even available and responded when I texted a couple times with questions. I really appreciated that to start with the contractor, Brent, touched base with me to update me on planned start date given many weather/rain delays on their work this spring. The crew was polite and when I showed up home from work early one day, they were quick to clear my path to the garage of supplies and any nails and very nice and apologetic. Brent offered to and did update me on progress on the roof with texts and a couple photos which surprised me and was appreciated. The crew finished the roof in just a couple days. They cleaned up everything and checked with me to avoid damage to my lawn when moving one of the garbage collection bags. I felt the price was definitely reasonable for the job. Not the cheapest I heard, nor the most expensive. Overall I felt a very good value and I’m happy I chose them and would (and already have) recommend them to friends!

It has been two months, and he has not completed the job. He has been contacted multiple times to complete the work. If he completes the work, I will update the review. Otherwise, I cannot recommend him at this point.

We have the same railing system at our home that is on the market and knew it will be great for our new home. I called to schedule for an onsite work up and quote on the day of our closing since this was a safety issue. Justin came out and was very informative and discussed different finish options. He handed me a quote within half an hour. I was happy to show him the 5% discount from Angie's List. The railing system was installed about 2 weeks after we ordered - signed contract and put payment down. It was pouring down rain the day of the install, so it was backed up by 2 days. There was some lack of communication; but it worked out. Installers were very friendly and respectful of our property. Another cold and rainy day on the first install day. They finished in 2 days and we are very happy with the look and the experience with Penn Fencing. I noticed that 2 sections do not feel as "tight" as the others so I put a call into Justin and I feel confident that someone will be out to look at and fix.

Excellent. Dylan's work exceeded my expectations. His price was fair and work was impeccable. He had excellent attention to detail, including cleaning/polishing off the vinyl railing (from sticker goo and dirt), sealing up the attic area where he installed the fan, and putting extra touches on the drywall mud in the kitchen to match the existing swirl patterns. He always took care to clean up. I would absolutely hire again for any of my handyman needs.

Job went very well. They came every day until finished, approximately two weeks. Even though we had some days where bad weather was forecasted. Very professional Neat, they cleaned up at the end of every day. We had some small changes which they took care of. Had issues with 2 items (threshold and gutter) after job was completed. They came up promptly and took care of it. And followed up with a phone call. Very pleased. Highly recommend Jack and his crew. Anyone wants to see his work is welcome to stop by and check it out.

I met with several companies over the span of half of a year before deciding on Penn Fencing. The price was VERY reasonable (half of what another vendor wanted) and all of the individuals I spoke with were very professional and really seemed to have my best interests at heart. When it became time for the installation they arrived on time and got right to work. We reviewed the work to be performed, some of the choices that had been discussed with the salesman, and off they went. During the installation they ran into a couple of snags, due to how my old railings were installed, however they were able to come up with good solutions to all of the issues encountered. The installation did take longer than expected, but I believe this was related to the snags they ran into and the change in timing was well communicated. I was most impressed when at the end of the first day of work they asked me to take a look at the install thus far, and pointed out a spot where they made a mistake (cut a 7' section of railing just slightly too short) and told me that they would be replacing that section of railing. I would never have noticed the mistake, but they felt it was just a little too short and could be a safety issue. Needless to say, I was quite pleased with the attention to detail and the level of service. Upon completion I am very happy with the job that was done. The railing is beautiful, extremely sturdy (absolutely NO play in it), and a really nice upgrade to our front porch. I'd be more than happy to recommend them to a friend.

Recent Review: The company built a solid deck that met all permitting inspection requirements without exception. The carpentry work was nothing fancy, but good average quality. They frequently brought up detailed construction options to me during the project so I could make the decision, which I really appreciated. The crew was extremely polite and friendly. I was a little surprised by an increase in price presented on the final day due to unexpected challenges in doing the railing. The decks look great. I am really going to enjoy them.

Recent Review: We had a very positive experience with Zane. First he got back to me very promptly when I contacted him, and continued to be responsive and communicative throughout. He offered what I thought was a pretty fair price for the work, although I admit we didn't shop around that much. Regarding the actual work, Zane and his coworker Zack did a lovely job. They really kept themselves as unobtrusive as possible while they worked, kept things quiet and as clean as they could, and were generally very considerate. They cheerfully put in an extra long day one day in order to avoid having the job spill over into the weekend, which we really appreciated. The final result looks great, exactly what we wanted. We will definitely hire again!

Recent Review: The results are very beautiful and a huge difference from what we had. The only glitch was the color swatches they showed us to help choose our new stain was not wiped down and therefore looked much darker than they would appear later. The color of the finished floor was lighter than I had intended. Kerbs does excellent work but I recommend that you are very careful in choosing your color and stay for the entire application to be sure it's what you want.

Recent Review: After removing the full carpet that had covered our main staircase for the past 20 years, we discovered a really ugly, though sound, pine substructure. In our search for someone to provide a hardwood overlay to this existing staircase, we were referred to Kellner Stair and Rail by the folks at Artcraft Wood Products Company. A stop at their facility near the 62nd Street bridge was followed by a visit to our home to discuss our requirements and ideas and to take the necessary measurements. We also decided to have the baluster and handrail replaced at that time. The acceptance of their quote and a down payment was followed several weeks later by the installation of this beautiful staircase, baluster, and railing; an installation that took a number of days to complete. The fitment and finish is like fine furniture. We could not be more pleased. Thanks Don! Thanks Ron!

Recent Review: Within days of taking tape measurements, Mike was here, on the job, drilling through concrete. Mike completed everything, in less than a week. He was, without a doubt, the cleanest, tradesman, I've ever had, in my home. He has made me safe, in my home, again; due to a crazy illness, I lost all balance, and needed to learn how to walk again. Mike wanted me to feel comfortable, again. He covered all bases, in that regard!!! Thank you, Mike! Veery well done!!!!! -

Recent Review: Wyatt demo'ed the old stairs and rebuild the new set at an angle less steep leading further out in to the yard making them so much easier to walk up and down them. He also made a concrete landing at the bottom of the steps to make sure I wasn't stepping in mud when getting off the steps, something I hadn't even thought of and I appreciated the extra effort he took to make sure every aspect was attended to. He also came up with the idea of adding lattice on the railings which really complimented the look. Communication was excellent throughout the project length and a payment plan was offered as well which was much appreciated. All in all a job well done!

Recent Review: Bill & I removed the two panels and he replaced the wheels in the base with ones that I had purchased on the web. He then installed a stainless steel sleeve I had also purchased over top the rail on the base that the doors wheels roll on (because it was all chewed up). We reassembled the door and wrapped up the project in little more than one hour. It works like new! Since they charge a minimum of 2 hours time, he asked if there was anything else he could help with. I asked him to help me repair a masonry ornamentation on my front porch. I needed to buy epoxy to complete that task, but he drilled out the holes, which was what I had wanted him to do. He is meticulous, intelligent, knows how "things work", careful and just the kind of person I was very pleased to have working on a project. I'd definitely hire him again.

Recent Review: Went pretty well - not quite all of the work we wanted done got done the first time around. Called Bella and let them know what happened. They were very professional and came back out to complete the work with no major headaches. I am very impressed with their customer service as this could have been a huge negative for them in my book, but the folks at Bella were so friendly and professional that they managed to turn it into a positive! They may be a little expensive, but they are very much worth it. I would definitely work with them again.
