The installation process is relatively straight forward. We use up-to-date equipment and processes to complete your renovation. By doing this and implementing attention to detail we contribute the least amount of impact on your surroundings while maximizing a quality outcome. The following is an
outline of how we operate on a general installation project.
1. Upon arriving for the installation, a general assessment is
made to determine how to best set up the work station for the least impact on your surroundings. This is discussed and
agreed on with homeowner.

stair coverings are put down for protection.

A: No. In most all cases the handrail does not need to be replaced.
