My mother needed a handrail

My mother needed a handrail on the front porch. Fortin Ironworks was reasonably priced, easy to install, and very sturdy.

Love the look. Very sturdy,

Love the look. Very sturdy, well made.
Needed to buy a few more drill bits for the hard concrete but other than that installation went well. I installed on the out side of the steps, to get maximum width which I am very glad I did.

A well designed, well made

A well designed, well made railing that was a breeze to install. Joe was very helpful in providing a drawing to show how the rail would look on the steps to our patio. I’ve already had one person ask for photos & contact info to do a rail project at their home. Easy ordering process & Joe helped with an issue with the carrier to get the item to us. Thanks!

I needed a rail…

I needed a rail to qualify for my home insurance plan. My neighbor recommended a cheap fix by way of black pipe used for industrial uses. I opted for something that was more appealing and could be a permanent solution, hence, I discovered Fortin Ironworks. They were easy to install and look great. Showed them to the insurance agent and instantly was granted a new policy.

I purchased one of these

I purchased one of these rails for an elderly neighbor who had a handyman install a cheap metal kit from one of the big box stores. It had rusted out and I was afraid she would fall if she accidentally leaned against it. The rail was very easy to install. I followed the directions and took me less than an hour. Very strong and sturdy. I am ordering another one for her since she wants one on the other side of the step. Hint- If drilling into concrete, rent or borrow a hammer drill. Saves a lot of time and effort.

oh so sturdy

I ordered my wall handrail from Joe, and I am very pleased with my order. I am in NY and my order came and my rail was package properly and was not damaged. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone who is looking to do a DIY project. By the way I forgot to mention my handrail is oh so sturdy.


Our parish needed a rail

Our parish needed a rail to assist our aging pastor move safely around the church’s altar. From my first conversation the Fortin Ironworks rep to the ease of installation, the DIY handrail was a perfect solution. We’ll be needing more before long. Thank you!

Extremely Satisfied! Joe could not

Extremely Satisfied! Joe could not have been more helpful from beginning to the end of the process. It was a pleasure from the mock up to final installation. The railing is beautiful and sturdy. I couldn’t be more pleased.


Completely Satisfied

I live in a 55 plus community and my front porch steps had no handrails. After some extensive research and talking with several contractors I found DIY Handrail online. Joe made it so easy to order and even gave me a rendering for my HOA approval process. Since I am elderly I hired a handyman to install them and he said it was easy and asked me for DIY Handrail’s info. Joe is very responsive and does everything to make sure you are completely satisfied. In my opinion you can’t go wrong if you order DIY handrails.


Joe and his customer service

Joe and his customer service is above reproach! Joe and I emailed back and forth numerous times so he could help me select the correct railings for my application. The shipping was incredibly fast…the handrails arrived far ahead of my expectations. I tell everyone that will listen about D.I.Y. Handrail. This has become my go to place for future purchases. I have a patio, stairs out to the garage and possible will replace the handrails inside going to my lower level. This company and Joe are absolutely the best!
