Recent Review: They did a fabulous job and their price is fair. They did everything I wanted with our complicated and unusual design on our deck. They were very accommodating and nice people. They did everything on time and finished the job early for us since they knew we were having a party.

Recent Review: 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: Contacted and visited Sierra Stairs Works showroom for ideas on staircase railings. We brought with us several pictures of the area in question. They were very helpful, knowledgable, and professional. We ordered the material that day and received them in less than two weeks time. We did not use them to install the railings, as my husband is handy and installed them himself. In any other case we would have had them do the installation. I highly recommend this company and would use them again.

Recent Review: This is the second time I've hired Brent Brandolino, Granite Bay House Doctor. So, already that says something positive. He came out to the house to give me an estimate on building a new section of front porch railing. We agreed on the scope of work and set up a date and time for the work to be completed. I had taken out a sidewalk and steps to the front porch that led to a very busy street that no one could use. There was already a second sidewalk and set of steps from the driveway to the same porch and front door. Brent arrived at the agreed upon time and day, took measurements, conferred with me about a couple of items and picked up the wood he needed to complete the project. He not only did a beautiful job, he'd determined that the rails on the existing 5 feet of railing were incrementally smaller distances apart and duplicated that effect on the section he built. That way, the eye wouldn't notice a difference in how it looked. I was impressed. Cleanup was well done. The railing looks great and is exactly what i wanted. I will definitely hire him again to do work at my house.

Recent Review: His service provided was PERFECT and his text were so thorough re what he was going to do! Since about July we have been communicating. He adjusted the door on the back gate immediately, PERFECT! Then I didn't hear from him for awhile, after he scraped off some of the paint on the interior hand rails; however he contacted me several weeks later and explained he had a medical issue that need to be addressed. Anyway, once healthy again, he consulted with Kelly Moore, removed the caked on paint on the stairwell handrails by belt sanding outside and hand scraping the inside and oiled the handrails to seal and waterproof them. Doing this now will repel the dirt, the handrails won't peel, chip and are easy to clean. He also patched the holes where one rail was removed. Presently he is determining what paint color matches the hallway.

Dave called me back right away and provided a reasonable estimate for the work performed. After providing the estimate, he came back a few days later to do the work. He was very friendly and personable. He came at the time he said he would be here. The work took a little longer than he expected. The railing and the gate look wonderful! He and his brother did an excellent job. They cleaned up everything after they were done and hauled away old materials. They were very professional.

My stairwell had handrails on only one side. I wanted matching handrails installed on the opposite side (see attached photo). Although the mounting work was technically challenging, the finished work looks really bad. And my guests don't care abut how challenging it was to install, they just see that it looks bad. When the contractor estimated the job, he said he would buy the 2x4 pieces ahead of time and sand them off-site so that I (and my neighbors) wouldn't have to worry about the dust and noise from the power sanding, and that the job should take about 4 hours. However, he apparently bought the wood just before arriving to the job that morning and the apprentice spent about two hours in the backyard sanding the wood while the contractor left the site to go get more material to complete the work. Overall, the two were here for almost 8 hours. At the end of the day when I saw the wood I was astonished at how bad it looked, even with paint. There are lots of dings gouges on all the pieces (see photos). He said that the wood was all the lumber yard had, but it looks more like leftovers from a junk pile. I didn't know what to do because it was obvious that the work could not be torn out and redone due to the way the railings were mounted. I finally contacted the Handyman Network to complain and I was told that they would contact the contractor and get back to me. That was two weeks ago and I haven't heard from anyone.

Steve built new steps with a handrail. The old steps were so small and steep we had to turn sideways to go from kitchen to garage. Now the new steps are per required specs, very solid, with easy access.

AHandyman Contractor
Handyman Contractor responded timely in looking over the dry rot on my back porch steps and suggested options for repair. Contractor was able to do a surgical repair rather than redoing the entire stairway. They were able to use some existing lumber I had, which saved money on materials. Overall satisfied with the responsiveness and quality of the work.

Mr. Hawley response time was very quick.  He began the work in the same week and completed it in a decent amount of time.  The quality of work was good.  I have more work for him to do but had to put it off for a bit, but he was ready to start as soon as the first project was complete.
