Recent Review: I initially contacted Hooshang with the intention of repairing a badly constructed, straight run of stairs leading down to the basement in our 1950's house. He returned my message promptly and scheduled a time to come out and see the staircase. After looking at the staircase, he advised me that it would be better to replace it entirely, since retrofitting it with the missing skirt boards was going to be problematic, and in his opinion we wouldn't be happy with the results. He strongly encouraged us to consider a new staircase, since it would solve the problem of the missing skirt boards, and be much better constructed with no squeaks. He gave me a verbal estimate for replacing the staircase, since I wasn't ready at that point to make a decision. Well over 2 months past, and I had a hard time finding stair specialists who were interested in either a repair or replacement job in my area. Most had elaborate web sites showcasing very fancy work, whereas we just needed straightforward quality work. I called H.R. Stairs and Rails again, and Hooshang came back out to the house, took measurements and provided me a written quote for replacing the existing stairs with red oak stairs using pine stringers and skirtboards, as well as installation. Over the next two weeks, H.R. Stairs and Rails built the staircase offsite, and arrived on time to install on Saturday morning. I was especially impressed that they kept the appointment to install even though it was snowing, and 6 inches or more were forecast for the day. Hooshang and his crew of 3 helpers were courteous and quickly got the staircase inside and started installation. In an hour they had the staircase installed, had cleaned up, and were ready to go. The stairs look great, don't make a sound, and we couldn't be happier with them. We're even considering having them do the stairs to our upstairs level as well. Hooshang was very professional, very courteous, and I'd absolutely recommend him and his company to anyone who needs stair work.
