Reviews in Pittsburgh for Porch Railing Installation
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.

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

He would not come out since I was across town, he said what I wanted done would not warrant the travels.

Rick is one of the few remaining master craftsmen. He strives for excellence in everything that he does. Rick did a railing project for us. He thoroughly explained the contract to us before we executed it. The carpentry work that Rick did was excellent. He was knowledgeable and brought the right tools to the job. The attention to detail was remarkable. Parts were trimmed so that they fit perfectly. Staining and varnishing was done with the utmost care. At the end of each day he cleaned up thoroughly. He was punctual in executing the work. We would highly recommend Rick.

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.

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!

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.

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!
Recent Review: 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.
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!
