My husband has been struggling with hip and knee pain. He has both artificial hips from the past 15 years due to long term steroid use. And will soon begin the process of knee replacements. A friend was able to install efficiently and my husband begin using immediately. We are very satisfied with the product. Thank you!
After much searching I finally found the perfect handrails for my porch. I purchased the Picket #2. They were easy to install with complete instructions and are durable and beautiful. Just what I wanted for both front and back steps! I would not hesitate to order again. Fast, friendly service right here from OHIO!!
I purchased Picket #2 for my new set of steps and this was a perfect fit and well built! Very happy to have found a true American made product by a company that takes pride in their work: you can see it in the workmanship. The instructions on how to choose the correct kit on the website right to installation once received was very clear. Exceeded expectations! I would definitely recommend this product.
The perfect solution. We have a small home with a wood deck and a box step leading up to our door. Originally, I had planned to build a wooden handrail, but after my 3yo daughter unexpectedly fell of the edge of the deck and almost seriously hurt herself, I decided that we needed a rail asap. I found DIY, sent Joe a text to request a mockup, and received a response within minutes.
He identified potential problems with our stair layout and after careful consideration, we placed our order. Package arrived a few days later, in excellent condition (well protected).
Installation took 2 hours start to finish. Because there was not a lot of room for error in our layout, we took time to make sure everything was done right. Having a bottle of touch-up paint included to paint the bolts to match the rails was a nice touch too. I know this will come in handy if/when the rail gets dinged from use over time.
The finished result is something we are proud to have on our little home.
I’m so glad we found DIY and Joe.
I would recommend Joe and his products to friends, family, and clients, no reservations.
I bought the 24” wall mount hand rail, and I am very pleased with welded solid iron construction, powder coat finish, and supplied mounting hardware including nut driver bits. The package was well padded to prevent damage. Fast shipping with quality construction and finishing… you can tell these people take pride in their work.
Perfect for my needs. Delivery was prompt, packaged well. Installation on brick wall went well. Had some black automotive touch-up paint that made the silver colored mounting screws “disappear “. After 1 year still looks new.
My adult son and daughter-in-law purchased an older home that needed the front steps redone. We had to cut off the old wrought iron handrails and cover the old concrete with blue stone. I found DIY on line, called him for advice, and he nailed it! He shipped exactly what worked and it was easy for me to install over the new bluestone in half a day. My son and his family love the railings and their new front steps! A beautiful and quality product!
I have nothing but great compliments on the entire process of having a handrail on my front porch. Ordering process was easy, was delivered in 2 days, and I was able to install in a very short time. It was great to have all necessary bits for installation, and the instructions to install easy to understand. We are passing your name to friends and neighbors! Thanks for having an outstanding product, sturdy, and real iron!
In the years we have resided in our current home, there was never a thought that we might need a handrail to our front porch entrance. However prior to the onset of Winter, we decided to add a short DIY handrail, mainly for appearance purposes.
On Thanksgiving day, a friend arrived and began to climb the two steps to the front porch. As I opened the door to greet him, he suddenly stumbled forward and was headed for a certain head first collision with our concrete porch. Fortunately, the railing I installed a few months earlier, was there for him to grab. Without it, he had no chance to avert a serious fall.
The railing, which I found quite easy to install by myself has proven it’s worth already. Not just an attractive addition to our home, but a great value to at least one visitor so far in the first year.
Beautifully made hand rails, very professionally finished and exactly as advertised. (I’ve seen Asian versions, which made me sick to my stomach, so I’m delighted these are so well made.)
The supports are hollow but very sturdy, and nicely heavy, nevertheless I turned them over and filled them with mason’s cement before installing them! Mine are super strong!!
