Started with a $4500 estimate and went up to $8500 without notifying us. Never mentioned that the estimate was going up, just gave me the bill towards the end of the job. Had a hard time understanding what I wanted. Workers hardly spoke english and never came at the time they stated. They would also just leave the job without telling us they were leaving. Work was not quality work. Did not put the end post on railing and had to have them come back and re do it. They cracked the marble floor around the base of stairs and then tried hiding it with a base board. They left sanding marks and patches on the visible part of the stairs. The veneers on the bottom stairs peeled and bubbled after a month of installation, had to have them come back and do them again. They did a sloppy job of gluing them on again.

I purchased the drop down stairs from Lowes and contacted Bryan to install them. Bryan and his guys did a great job in both the removal of the old stairs and the installation of the new one. Without asking, they took the old stairs and the new box with them and cleaned up my garage. Very professionally done!

Flavio was excellent! He listens to the homeowners requests and handles them professionally. My wife and I would definitely hire him again. In a house there is always work to be done. It is hard to find professional labor to do tasks around the house without an agrument. Thanks.

He was quick to respond to our request. I sent him all of the information about the stairs and he said he could do it and give me a rate of $400. He was punctual and got to work right away but it was apparent that he was "winging it" with putting the stairs together. After almost 8 hours he finished and then said he was $100 an hour. When I questioned him about the change in price he said he didn't realize it was going to take him this long. After a little negotiating he took off $100 and then started complaining about how he didn't have lunch. (We never agreed to feed him!) The stairs are sturdy however there is one step that is at the top and should be at the bottom. It's a minor detail but if he had paid a little more attention to the directions (or actually knew how to put these particular stairs together) it was easily discernible. As I said the stairs are in and sturdy but he was quite disruptive and the worst thing was that he smelled as if he hadn't showered in weeks! We had to go out and get candles. It was seriously offensive! He did the job but it was the most unbearable 8 hours with him.

The stairs were detaching from the wall considerably. Marty Anderson's company seemed to have the most solid expertise. They arrived promptly to give me an estimate, took the time to patiently explain the necessary repairs in detail, and gave me a detailed written quote. They rebuilt 5 steps and restored them using as much of the original materials as possible. Prompt, friendly, reasonably-priced, and even went the extra mile to put back the carpet runner that was on the stairs (which other companies did not offer to do) and did a great job overall.

It went well. They were professional, courteous, punctual and cleaned up after themselves. Most important, they did a great job. They left me with a staircase that is structurally stronger than the one I had.

They demolished and removed the deck and the large mountain of wood that made up the deck and the attached swingset. They solidly anchored supports for the new stairs into the wall of the building, and assembled, finished and painted the new deck and stairs. They arrived promptly at 8:30, immediately got to work and worked tirelessly until the job was finished. They cleaned up the area and were overall very professional. We would not hesitate to use them again or recommend their services.

AA GA-Stairs & Railing & Carpentry
GA-stairs and Railing is an excellent company. Mr. Heraldo Slater and his workers were very professional as well as punctual. The work that was done was phenomenal. I expected the work to take at least two weeks or more, because other contractors were telling me the length of time. In all actuality it only took a week. I am impressed with the work and will hire GA-Stairs and Railing to renovate my patio this spring. If anyone is looking for precision, puncuality, dedication, professionalsim, and price friendly work, I highly recommend Mr.Slater and his crew.

Recent Review: I had stairs put on the front of my house. I had a porch added on. The stairs ended up really high. I called him and he answered right away. He came over very quickly. He gave me a portfolio to look at that was out of this world. He has done work around so many places. He has done work all over the place. He was very fair priced. He was well worth the wait. He was absolutely fantastic. He was so caring and so neat. He did other things that went above and beyond.
Recent Review: Wow! Hired to install interior railings in a bilevel and couldn’t be happier. Anthony and crew at the lumberyard walked me through materials options on site. Anthony then came to my house to give an estimate, and scheduled the date for installation. For the installation, Hans arrived as scheduled and did beautiful work on a wood handrail leading to the lower level, and a wood railing/iron balusters/wood newel post to the upper level. I have a closet protruding over the stairs presenting some difficult angles, but everything is installed very securely and without looking at all awkward— it looks amazing. Easy to schedule, great communication, professional from start to finish, reasonable price. Highly recommended!
