Reviews in Blanco for Porch Railing Installation

The contractor arrived on time.  We reviewed the work, which in my case was to rebuild some wooden stair handrails that had rotted out, and repair the wooden railing around my front porch. He recommended that the handrail on the steps be completely rebuilt (the anchor posts had rotted out of the ground), but the railing around the front porch was largely salvagable (we only needed to replace the top board). After the consultation, he went to purchase supplies and got to work.  I had purchased the "4 hours for $149" coupon.  The job ultimately took about 6 hours, mainly due to the railings that had to be rebuilt from scratch.  He also had to buy about ~$80 worth of lumber.  He had his tools (circular saw, etc.) with him, and cut the pieces on the front lawn.  After he was finished, he hauled all of the scraps and such away, leaving my front yard clear of debris. One word of note regarding this coupon:  it only covers labor, not materials.  Any wood or additional supplies that need to be purchased in order to complete the job, you are responsible for. Overall, I'm very happy with the quality of workmanship and the ease of working with this contractor.  I'm actually going to use them again to repair my upstairs balcony railing.

They responded to my call on the same day and came to the house on the next day to give me an estimate. They thoroughly checked the entire porch railing and made a recommendation on which areas were in need of replacing. They provided me with exact cost of materials which they looked up online. And they were able to complete the job the next day which was a Saturday. They bought all materials needed and arrived at the time agreed upon to complete the work. They noted that only the mailbox post needed replacing and were able to remove the mailbox and place it on the new post thus saving me the cost of having to buy a new mailbox. Bret and Derek were very professional in their demeanor and projected a can-do attitude. The quality of their work was excellent and they took time to clean up after completion of the job. I highly recommend them!

Bernie does good work at a fair price, but tends to do the work intermittently and/or lets other jobs intervene. This is the second job Bernie has done for us. The first was a larger job rebuilding a deck, and it took several weeks of off-again, on-again attention to the job. In spite of the prolonged time from start to finish, we liked his work and decided to have him remove the old railing from a porch and install a new one with the stipulation that once started the job was to be done without interruption. There were also some minor adjustments to be made to the first job. No doubt Bernie was busy, and bad weather also contributed to the delay, but finally after 4+ months and still no fixed date for the job, I advised him we were making other arrangements for the work. Miraculously he said he was coming the next day to start the work, and he did. He stayed with it until the work was completed. We like Bernie and his work and think that he provides fair value. However, his tendency to delay start and/or completion of a job is a negative.

Did a great job. Cost was maybe a little higher than I could have received from someone else but worth it.

We were very pleased with the work from Austin Deck Company. Their bid was very competitive with other bids we received. It was a pleasure working with Abe, he was very instrumental in helping with the selection of composite and also with creating additions to our decking. The crew, Josh & Michael were very polite and great at explaining the progress of each day. Abe came out often during the construction to check on progress and go over items with us. Overall, Abe and his crew are creative, courteous, prompt and conscientious. Our deck looks great and we are very happy with the way it turned out. Thank you Austin Deck Company... Ricky & Phillip

I contacted 21st Century Painting and Roofing as my front porch railings were in severe need of repainting. The paint was peeling due to a very poor DIY job. I contacted 2-3 companies and here on Angies list, all A rated,  and 21st Century was the only one that contacted me. They replied quickly, came out the house and looked at the job, bid it, and their bid was quite reasonable so I hired them to do the work.  We scheduled a date and time and they came on that day, got to work and did a fantastic job. The end result looks fantastic and the end price matched the bid to the penny.  Highly recommend!

This is the second time I have used this company. Came out to reposition my front porch supporting columns and correct front porch railing problem. Again, very good work and did it in a short period of time. Final cost was less than his estimate due to the fact it took him less time than he thought.Great Guy. I just don't know where he gets his energy?

Called for a consultation/estimation, guy came out, showed him what I wanted (rails up the stairs, wife had surgery recently, and needed railings).  Two short flights and a landing (5 rails total).  Stairwell is one of these modern ones that has a flat surface on top and drywalled walls.   Consultant they sent told me what it would cost, and what would be needed to be done.  We agreed to a price, and they arranged someone to come out and work on it. Installer who arrived was personable, polite, and had a polite trainee with him.  Unfortunately, the guy who wrote up the work order didn't really put a lot of thought into it, didn't give the right specs, and didn't realize what exactly the job entailed.  I count on the people who I hire to know this, if I was an expert in home modification, I wouldn't hire people to do it. :) First off, the guy who spec'd the job had 2 mounting brackets for each 7 foot rail.  You can't hold 7 foot rails on with 2 railing holders, not without the 7 foot rail bouncing up and down as you put weight on it.  I have a disabled wife, and she needs something solid, not something that gives with each step.  So the installer (who was, again, nice and seemed fairly competent) got on the phone, and they upped the price to go buy more parts.  Then he had to install the rails using 300lb drywall mounts.   It's been about 6-8 weeks, and the rails are already starting to shimmy as you walk up, because the drywall mounts are wriggling.  I figure the rails will last about a year before I have to replace them.  Looking back on it, the guy who spec'd it out, is to me, the issue.  He apparently didn't know how to do rails, and gave a bad price and bad design to the installer.  If I had it to do over again, I now know what I'd do.  I'd put up an half-inch plank with a rounded edge up each side of the stairway, bolted to the two-by-fours in the wall wherever they are.  Then I'd bolt the railing to that plank at the equal-distant points they need to be bolted in at, rather than in the drywall on drywall mounts.   I'm giving the ratings I'm giving because they responded quickly, worked in a kind of remote area, and the installer seemed competent and did a good job with what he had to work with.  I didn't give a better rating because the initial consultation should have pointed out to me the need for a mounting plate, and should never have spec'd a job to have a 7 foot long rail mounted on only two brackets (especially not a 1.5 inch thick hand rail).  Next time, I will ask the contractor representative who specs the job what he thinks the installer will need and buy my own supplies, so I know there are enough supplies and the right type, rather than having my bill go up at the last minute due to bad design on his part.

Rick agreed to replace my porch railing for $50.00 an hour.  I agreed to pay Rick for the time it takes to pick up the material as well.  I gave Rick $275.00 upfront as a deposit to pay for the material.  It took Rick 6 hours to replace the rails.  He charged me 3 hours for picking up the material.  I received a receipt for the material which amounted to $237.00.  I did not receive the change from the material which would have amounted to $38.00.  I also feel that 3 hours for picking up the material is too much.  I have tried to contact Rick and left him a voicemail.  I would like the $38.00 I am owed for the materials and to be reimbursed for 2 hours for picking up the materials.  He has not returned my call.

Recent Review: They did an excellent job and I'm extremely pleased with the result. The beginning of the job was problematic, as the estimator did not follow up with an estimate after his initial visit. I called him again because of the mostly good reviews the company had on Angie's List. When he did submit an estimate, the cost was off by 10,000 feet which I brought to his attention and it was corrected. Thus the C for responsiveness. That said, the rest of the job went very smoothly. Allen was a great job coordinator, helpful and responsive in every way. And the crew - Leno, Jose, and Leo - were just outsanding! They built the fence as though it was their own. Everything they did was careful, precise, and totally professional. I cannot thank them enough for giving me the sturdy, attractive, and - hopefully - long lasting fence that I desired. I would recommend the company's work; especially ask for this crew to build your fence.
