Eduardo Chacon
Installed stainless steel railings outside soor. Very reasonable price. He is very honest, installed railings, cleaned up afterwards, very clean.

Walnut Creek Remodeling and Construction Company
I had HW construction out to build our deck on our front porch. We have a large area on the front of our house that wraps around with a railing and pillars. It all needed to be demolished and replaced. After interviewing several contractor the choice was clear. We choose HW Construction for several reasons. They met with us and were right on time. Hugh was very knowledgeable and had a quote to us the very next day. Once on the job they were there everyday until completion and the deck and railing turned out absolutely amazing. HW Construction communicated with us through out the process and the job turned out perfect. I would highly recommend using them

Carl Gaard's Work
Carl suggested the website where I chose the style handrail I wanted. He took care of the rest from there. He provided all materials and equipment and created a beautiful handrail that was not only funcitional, but also went well with the baseboard beneath it. While installing this handrail, he noticed that the small railing on the opposite side was very wobbly. It had been that way for years. Carl tightened it up and secured it to the stairs at no additional charge.

It's a family owned business. Owner Howard Simmons is knowledgeable in fabricating any type of stair and railing system. Excellent in working with customer to design what you need or want.

Affordable Handyman
Lee's responsive at beginning. After he left, I found some job unfinished. He called and promised to come back but, then just disappeared. He pushed me hard to leave feedback here before I called for the unfinished job. My feeling is that he want me to leave a positive feedbak before I found out the problem. Most jobs were ok. I would NOT hire him again for painting. He was not nice about pricing. He promised to take out a lock. Later, he found the lock very hard to remove, so I agreed he could instead repair wall paint in a small room. He painted directly on cracks without any preparation. When we discussed job, we were pointing at the wall. Later he refused to repair the ceiling where there was a couple of 1 square inch patches. The whole room took him only 10 minutes to replace the $50 lock job. He never refunded me for the job he ''forgot'' to finish. That included refinishing a window frame. I was selling the house, and had to hire another handyman and paid an extra $200.

Bruce arrived on time with all the pieces he had prefabricated and within a short time the rails were installed. Subsequently we discovered that one rail could not deal with lateral force in the way we had hoped. We consulted with Bruce and came up with an alternative. Bruce returned a couple of days later and made the necessary changes at no cost to us.During all of this Bruce was thoroughly professional, he was easy to deal with and did good tidy work.

Chris worked very fast and efficiently. We hadn't expected him to install both railings in one day. The outside railing took him only about an hour. My husband had been ready to climb stairs for over a week but couldn't because of the lack of handrails. Because of Chris' work, my husband was able to go outdoors and to sleep upstairs in his own bed for the first time in almost 3 months. The indoor railing looks like it was original to the house and the outdoor one looks good enough to be permanent.

Handyman Matters Of San Jose
Darryl called the day before he was scheduled to come to get an idea of what I needed him to do. He arrived on time, and did everything I needed him to do. All the work was very nicely done, with no mess. He went to several different places to find just the right seal to fit my shower door, and left me the information so that it would be easier to replace next time it wears out. He carefully covered the white pillars on my porch while spray painting my black porch railing to prevent over spray. I was very pleased with both the quality of the work and the reasonable price. He was also friendly and patient with my toddler who was curious to watch what he was doing!

Mr Handyman
They started on time and were finished in one day. My only complaints were that one of the 2 workers seemed, to me to talk down to me as a woman. I asked some questions that my husband requested that I ask and I got a flip answer. When they went to get more lumber, I looked at the posts and one post, right next to my front door had a large knothole in it that went around 2 sides of the post. It had a huge chunk gone from the middle of it. It was VERY obvious. When they got back I mentioned it and he said that he hadn't noticed it! After a short discussion, he agreed to change the post. The total job was done very well. If there is an earthquake the house may fall down but the porch will stand strong.

Heath Stairworks
I have filed an complaint against Brock Heath from Heath Stairworks with the State Licensing Board against and BBB. I hired him for a handrail installation in our home. I stated from the very beginning that I did not want any red tones in the stain and I have it in writing. I even met with him to choose the color, a walnut shade. The day the railing was installed I was at work and my husband was able to work from home so someone would be there. The installer, Russ, showed up with the wrong post and after my husband told him he didn't like it, he called Brock. A few minutes later, Brock called my husband and tried to convince him to keep it but my husband said no. Russ then left for a few hours to get the one I had chosen. Later that day, before applying the stain he showed it to my husband. My husband said it was very dark and had reddish tones so Russ said he would lighten it. After that, he showed my husband a stain sample and insisted that after lightening it, he had gotten the color I had chosen with Brock. No alternative was offered. My husband, who, was not involved in the decision making process and was only home to open the door, was under the impression that they were professionals and had picked everything out with me, agreed. I got home around 7.00 pm and Russ was still there. Since he showed up with the wrong post and took almost 2 hours to get a new one, got off to a late start and was still there. When I saw the railing, my first reaction was that I loved it. Russ did a good job. I asked about the color and he said that the wood had taken the stain that way and to see how it looked the next day once it was dried. I sent Brock an email saying that we were happy with the work Russ had done. The next morning when I got up I realized that the stain was red!! I immediately took pictures and sent them to Brock. On my way to work I called him and what I encountered was unbelievable. Brock said that the color I picked out was Mahogany. I told him that there was NO way I would pick that color because it has red tones and that I picked a walnut shade. The conversation only got worse from there. Brock blamed me and threatened to put a lien on my property and send me to collections if I didn't pay him. At that point, all I wanted to know was what my options were to fix it. Brock offered nothing and was a complete BULLY sending me several threatening emails. When I asked him why he had shown me stain samples with red tones when I had indicated in writing that I didn't want, his answer was that "It is not Heath Stairworks' responsibility to interpret "red" the same way you do" I am beyond appalled with Brock's behavior. I tried to reach an agreement with him and even offered to split the cost to have it re-stained and his answer was no. We have just paid a lot of money for something we are not happy with and have been blamed, threatened and bullied by Brock Heath. I'm sure that there are many great handrail installers out there, please keep our story in mind when considering Heath Stairworks.

Recent Review: Deck looks great. Had to build around hot tub which is embeded in deck so more complicated than straight decking. Would recommend.


Recent Review: The work was done well, installations were clean, and he was very professional, though he did miss one of our three appointments and we had to reschedule. I would definitely work with him again given the opportunity.
