Hello Randy,

Thank you for coming out and helping us get the railing made and installed for our project. Its a great looking system. I figured the entry stair would be quite a challenge to deal with, but Dennis knocked it right out. I have another one coming up, and I will be giving you a call to come take a look at that one soon also. Thanks Again.

The railing at Myrtle Dr. turned out perfect. The client is pleased, and so are we. I’m glad we were able to find a quick and easy solution to dealing with the pre-installed stanchions. Dennis definitely knew what he was doing, which always makes dealing with our subs easier. Appreciate all your help and we will be in touch on the next one.

Hi Randy,

Thank you for your for all your help getting our deck railings installed. Dennis did a really nice job, and seemed to have no problem at all working around our decking replacement that was a work in progress. I really love the look and quality of the new cable railing. Great Job!

We wanted to let you know our client is very happy with the cable railing system you installed at the Kirby Ave. project. I appreciated your team’s professionalism and experience helping us work through our waterproofing challenges. The railing looks great, and everybody loves it.

AV Builder has worked with Hansen on multiple projects where they installed various types of guard railing systems. I personally have worked with them on two of the jobs where I was the site superintendent.

I have found both the field installers, as well as the project management personnel, to be knowledgeable and responsive to our project needs. I never had a problem with their conduct on the job and in supporting the jobs on which they were our subs. In both cases the customer was complimentary in both the overall product and the conduct of the on site installers.

We have relied on Hansen Architectural systems for the aluminum cable railing systems for two buildings in the Seattle area. We have found Hansen staff extraordinarily qualified and easy to work with. Their attention to detail has meant that the materials provided could be installed without any complication or the need for correction. Also, while we have used a local contractor for much of the installation of the systems, Hansen provided technical assistance and trained the contractor’s staff in a friendly and helpful manner. In over forty years of operations we have not encountered any vendor that provides better service and quality materials.

Hansen Team,

The Stony Run Bridges project went together very well. The compound radius was a difficult detail to deal with, and all the components that your team fabricated fit great and installed easily. Your response to our site changes were prompt and efficient. It was a pleasure dealing with your firm.

Re: Embassy Suites Hotel – Washington, D.C.

Hansen was an essential partner on the recently completed Embassy Suites project for Hitt Construction in Washington, D.C. The Hansen team delivered a quality product ahead of our schedule. Their attention to detail and proactive approach on this project helped us deliver multiple floors at a time to the project owner. We truly enjoyed working with Hansen and look forward to working together on future projects.

Hey Dan, I just wanted to reach out and say thank you for everything. Your rail system worked out really nicely, and I look forward to using you guys in the future.

Everything went really well, your customer service was really good, and your rail system was great to work with. Thanks again for all your help. Here’s a couple photos of the building.

Our installation went very smoothly on the McClurg Tower project in Chicago, IL. Hansen was very responsive to our needs, and adapted to changes as they occurred in the installation process. This was especially helpful when we had to change configurations, and re-engineer the railings to meet site conditions that varied from the initial design, and the Hansen team provided quick and resourceful solutions to deal with those situations.

Herzog Glass recently completed the 1321 Seneca Condominium Tower balcony railing project using Hansen products. Hansen worked with us and the project design team to create a totally new, clean-sheet, railing design for this project in Seattle, WA. They prepared all the engineered shop drawings for us, as well as a full-size, mock-up that was used for owner approval. This project required two custom colors and their system was quickly approved by our client. All materials were received in excellent condition and in a timely manner that met the project schedule. As an Estimator, I look forward to pursuing more future projects with the Hansen team.

After looking for a glass pool surround that would meet the needs of one our contractors, we decided on Hansen Architectural. Their Techwall system worked perfectly. It was easy to install and aesthetically pleasing. We are now on our 4th job using the Techwall system and I am looking forward to more. The team at Hansen have been very helpful with everything from submittals to alternate attachments for specialty installs. Dan Lofdahl has managed our projects and has always provided great service and knowledge when it comes to figuring out exactly what I need for each install.

Looking forward to more of the same product and service from Hansen.

We have recently completed our second large project in San Diego County using Hansen Architectural Systems. We are fortunate to have had their assistance in design and planning for our project. We’ve had many different styles that they have produced plans for and always made their system work. Their product is one of the best, high quality products we have had installed and/or used. Their installers do good, clean and professional work. Everything has always been on time and their materials made using high quality materials. The customers, residents, and construction manager’s all were very pleased with the new railing system. They are a great selling point to associations that are looking to upgrade their look.

We appreciate having great suppliers like Hansen Architectural Systems on our projects. The team at Hansen has been great to work with on all parts of our project from design, shop drawings and detailing to installation recommendations and other ways to help the project to become successful. Hansen has went above and beyond what I would expect with project, in helping get extra parts to the site quickly, support us in finding attachment solutions and engineering calculations as well as having boots on the ground to ensure the product is installed correctly. I recommend Hansen’s railing systems because they are easy to install and there is great support and are an even better looking end product than any other rail we have installed. Your team makes our job easier and that is greatly appreciated.

Hansen Architectural Systems was instrumental in helping us resolve multiple specification and design issues on the 800 NJ Ave. project. With assistance from Hansen we were able work with the architect and engineer in a collaborative manner to produce detailed job specific shop drawings. Adding to the complexity the project was also a requirement for metallic high performance coatings which Hansen was able to match on the first try, helping to expedite material release. Our team goal was to get a first drop of railing material onsite before the end 2016 to ensure productivity through the Holidays – Hansen delivered 80% of the project in early December and eliminated the risk of lost production during the holiday season. I look forward to working with the Hansen team on future projects.

Our recent Yamhill Townhomes project is complete and once again, you guys have done an excellent job! I believe this makes the 7th townhouse project we have completed with your railing systems. Each one with its own unique set of challenges, and your team always provide quick and well thought out solutions on the spot, and really knock these installations out of the park every time. Being one of the last trades in, you guys are always under the gun for timing, and you always come through for us. Thank you, and we look forward to working with Hansen on many projects to come.

Thank you for your assistance on our project in Kaimuki, Hawaii! Hansen did a great job providing everything we needed to complete this project from shop drawings to an impressive finished product. Your quick turn-around at every stage saved us a lot of time, especially when the architect added additional railings. The school has been very pleased with the results and everything looks great. We appreciate all your help, and look forward to any future projects we may work together on.

I had the pleasure of working with Hansen Architectural on a mixed use commercial and residential project in Denver, CO. Dan provided excellent customer service from pre-construction all the way through closeout. We encountered several installation challenges during the project and Dan was always readily available to help us with finding a solution. I also had the opportunity to tour Hansen’s facility in Los Angeles and it was in top notch condition and well organized. I would gladly work with Hansen again on a future railing job.

Hi Dan,

We recently completed our apartment project located in Palm Beach Shores, FL and found Hansen Architectural Systems to be a very reputable company to provide us with our cable railing system and window louvers.

We are quite pleased and would recommend them to anyone.

Thank you for the great service.

Thank you for the prompt response. It’s a pleasure dealing with someone that actually understands the customer service concept. I’ve spent two frustrating weeks trying to get a quote from one of the competing cable railing company’s AND asked two local suppliers to try and pry a quote out of them as well. All I have to show for this effort is clumps of hair pulled out and strewn about the office.

Thank you!

Hi Tracy,

I just wanted to let you know that Tom Trocino and Dennis were exceptional in getting this project complete. We were under tight time constraints imposed by closing on our house sale. Tom responded immediately by cell phone, was on site within a couple of days, and immediately follow up with an estimate. His responsiveness and the ability to commit to a rapid installation time frame resulted in our selection of Hansen Architectural Systems for the project – he made it easy. It may seem like a small thing, but Tom always answered his cell phone. I can’t tell you how much his availability put my mind at ease that the project was going to get done right and on time. Tom’s ability to mobilized Dennis from Portland allowed the project to get done before the promised schedule! The project was completed ahead of schedule, on budget, and looks great! Dennis does excellent work and a nice guy to have on site for a few days.

Thanks so much.

Hello Randy,

I started my cable railing installation last Saturday. It was a bit of a slow start while I was familiarizing myself with everything, but once you get it figured out, it goes together quickly with a professional look. I had no issues with the products whatsoever and was very impressed by the quality and the provided shop drawings. Next year I’ll need to do something about the decking, but with the outside mounted rail system, which was a main draw, it should be a lot easier. Also, the deck space is noticeably bigger as a result of the outside mount, and I would say we have added about 110 Sq. Ft.

I’m definitely a fan. Thank you for all your support, Randy.

Hello Tracy,

We have been working with Tom on a series of deck railings for our residence. We love your product! We looked at two competing aluminum railing manufacturers, as well as a wrought-iron option, before we found Hansen Architectural Systems. Best decision we made! Tom has been amazing to work with and very helpful! Not only is he immediately responsive to all our questions and concerns (and there have been many), he assisted us in designing railings that we will be enjoying for decades! The installers were equally great to work with and the the finished results are a site to behold! You can be sure we will be spreading the word about Hansen to everyone we know looking for new or replacement deck railings!

It’s been awesome working with Tom and the rest of the Hansen team.

Hi Tracy

I felt compelled to send you an email to let you know how pleased we are with our new cable railing. We first met Tom Trocino at the Seattle Home Show and had him come out to give us an estimate. He even gave us the address to one of his jobs near our house for us to look at. Tom was very professional, knowledgeable and friendly. He understood our specific needs and was very easy to reach any time we had questions (and there were many!) and he always returned my calls.

Cecil and his helper did an amazing job installing the railing. They respected our home and worked diligently to get it done in a timely manner. We just wanted to let you know that your employees are the best and we couldn’t be happier!

Please feel free to use us as a reference.

Thank you for your help, we absolutely love the railing. We have a spectacular view off our deck and your system does not hinder that view at all. Our 20 year old is going to school for mechanical engineering and can’t stop showing his friends what we have up. Our contractor friend (who does up scale houses) said he would like to use your system when he has a chance. Look forward to getting the project finished, and we will send you some photos when it is completed.

I wanted to write and let you know how much my wife and I enjoyed working with Doug on the design and Dennis on the installation of our new cable railing system. Doug put lots of hours in, even coming out to our home twice, to be sure he got everything correct. He was also able to expedite the construction date which was very important to us for numerous reasons. And Dennis and crew came out, explained what they were going to do and basically how they would do it, then went to work and were very diligent and quiet as they worked. No radios, loud bantering, just two guys focused on their work and ensuring a quality job. In our opinion, they did even more than expected and as we look at our deck and railing system, we’re more than happy. I’ve attached a few photos of the finished product, including the lights we purchased from your company.
Thank you so much for a great experience!

I may have sung their praise in a prior e-mail, but I want to make sure If I did not that I do now, since I just last weekend finished the install of the railing and IT LOOKS Great. I’ve included some pictures of which I sent to Doug . Just wanted you to know how much I am looking forward to showing it off to my friends. It provides the safety I need for my 18 month grandchild, but does not deter from the view. And your pricing put the others to shame. Thanks to Doug and your staff for really great job.

Thanks for your help on our railing project. It turned out great! As promised, I attached pictures of the finished project. I used ipe railing caps that I bought from the vendor you referred to me. I have another small area that I would like to add some railings on. I will send you the layout and pictures for a quote shortly.

I purchased the Clear Vue Mid Rail Picket system last Fall but our Ohio weather didn’t allow completion of the job until a couple of weeks ago. I’ve attached a few photos of the deck and railing and I am very pleased with the outcome. The secret to installing the railing system is to take your time, don’t rush and plan every cut carefully. I’m happy to say I took my own advise and I was able to complete the project without any problems.
Thanks for making such a great product!

I wanted to let you know that the check is indeed in the mail (really!). I don’t think I caught Saturday’s mail pickup, if I did, you may already have it. If not, you should have it by tomorrow or Wed. I wanted to mention that we were very pleased with the installer. He did a great job and was very professional and personable.
I did forget to get touch up paint from him while he was here. Could you posssibly send me some through the mail? I’d like to have it on hand just in case. So far, no disaters, but you know how it goes. We are very VERY happy wiht our railing and look forward to sending you many referrals. 🙂

You can tell from the pictures that I deviated a little from the plan. While the initial plan was for a shorter railing, I gave into my wife’s request for making it as high as possible. Happy wife, happy life. It has helped us get to our forty-sixth anniversary last July.
Our finished railing height is 41″ which is perfect for leaning on while solving the world’s problems. I love your system. I am getting a ton of compliments on it. Most people don’t even mention the deck but, instead, are quick to say what a great railing I’ve got. Thank you!!!!!!

We absolutely love the new Clearvue Cable railing at our Deja View villa! It is perfect for opening up the ocean view! In fact, your railing system turned out better than we could have imagined!

Thanks so much for your help in engineering our cable railing system as we had a large, complicated system to design in a tough marine environment. It makes all the difference in the world being able to see straight through the railing and to the view beyond. What a great product! We love it!

Outlined all rail components, and installation steps. This was very beneficial for our field contractor who had never installed the product before. The finished product looks wonderful and updated the look of our home by more than a decade!

As you know we researched railing styles and railing companies for two years. We researched whether we wanted pickets, glass or cable for our deck railing. In the end we felt the best product for our lake home would be a cable rail because it lets us see the lake almost like it isn’t there, it allows for air flow and we don’t have more glass to clean.
We looked at half a dozen different companies who sell cable railing. It didn’t take long and we could see the Hansen Architectural difference – ClearVue Railing is a SYSTEM. Your cable railing is designed from the ground up to be a system. When it comes to installing the ClearVue railing system it is apparent it is engineered to be a cable rail. Everything comes together the way it should. When you see the finished product it is so apparent. The ClearVue railing system comes all together with Standard and TrimLine posts, 45 and 90 degree angle posts (eliminating the double posts needed for corners with some deck railing systems) custom angles, post lengths, colors and the number of wires used.
We looked at a lot of cable rails but none appeared to have the design, style and quality of our ClearVue cable rail. We found cable railing available the same day locally. We looked at that. It was the fastest and easiest solution. But those systems use a cookie cutter approach so “one style fits every deck”. If you need 45, 90 or 135 degree angles you just buy two posts to make the angle and terminate the cables at every double post location. With ClearVue we received custom brackets and posts designed to follow the angles of our deck – in most cases with one post. We took our cable rail a step further and opted for a custom color to fit in with our home and match our vinyl decking. Your latest improvement, the new cable terminations are fantastic – nearly invisible. They are SO nice and clean looking and they aren’t hard to install – even for typical homeowners like us. One of the best things is the support we received from the design process to helping us with instructions and questions for installation – you were with us all the way!
After we were done with the installation my wife said “this looks better than I expected”. We enjoy a lot of time on our deck and it is so nice to enjoy the nicest cable railing system there is.

Tom Trocino and his crew from Hansen Architectural Systems rescued our home improvement project. Another contractor had agreed to construct our deck with a cable railing and gate. He had finished the project except for the gate. We waited for several weeks, but the contractor was not able to find an acceptable option for us.

I searched online and saw several cable railings gates I liked on Hansen’s website. I sent an email and got a prompt response. After I sent Tom a photo, I received an accurate, reasonable estimate for the cost for the gate. Tom’s crew went above and beyond our expectations. They found the company that had produced the rail system for our deck so that they gate would match the railing perfectly. They came to take precise measurements, had the gate ready when they said they would, and promptly came back to make a minor adjustment when we needed. We love our new gate. It looks great and functions well.

Below, please find some representative photographs of the finished product provided by your company. It is outstanding. The styling, workmanship and caliber of the product is unequalled with anything we could find. We obtained four quotes, and aside from yours – which was not the cheapest, nor the most expensive, none had the quality of the materials and professional appearance of the final product. Furthermore, your installers were focused, hard working and courteous. Every evening, the site was cleaned and debris removed.

We cannot be more pleased with not only the end product, but the manner in which it was sold and installed. You personally, convinced us there was no better solution to our needs, and you did it so professionally, yet personably. Please feel free to use us a a business reference anytime in the the future.

This letter is to express my sincere appreciation and gratitude to two of your employees, Doug Heizenrader and Roger Prasad. I had a rush project and that had to be completed in a very tight window. Doug not only provided expert advice and guidance, but also I believe was instrumental in helping me complete the project on time. This is my first experience with your product and with Doug’s guidance, the installation was flawless. His decision to predrill the holes for the bottom brackets significantly reduced the installation time. Communication was excellent with every phone call returned. Please pass on my thanks and gratitude to Doug. Although I spent only a few minutes with Roger Prasad as I was picking up the materials, I was really impressed with his attitude, friendliness, and sincere desire to help. That’s the kind of employee that most employers love to have. Also, pass on my appreciation to Roger. As a side note, both the client and I were really impressed with the railings and installation. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend your products.

This is my first time working with Hansen Architectural Systems. I found them online and after a couple of emails and phone call negotiations I decided to go for it. First, let me tell you they are the nicest, most professional people possessing the most effective customer service you will find. I was a little apprehensive making such a purchase online. They were not only very helpful in helping to decide what will be the best look they were also effective in the design in addition to being cost effective. The complete railing system took about two weeks to be made and was delivered on time. There were no problems at opening since it was very well packed. The railings look great and were very easy to work with having all the parts and tools available with extra parts and length just in case. This was my first Cable railing installation and the paper work wasn’t perfectly clear, however I called at 1030am, my time (730 am their time) and somebody was there to answer my questions, so that was fantastic. I give Hansen 5 stars for their service and if I need to I shall contact again, no doubt.

Tim stopped by with the sample railing system today and I loved it. Looks like a great, well thought out product and we are excited to move forward with it, Tim will be in touch soon. I also appreciate a company that sends out a well designed sample instead of a box of parts. It speaks well of your company. Upward and onward.

Lisa, I received the shipment this morning before 9:00AM. It looks like I have everything I need. Thank you for the fast response. I’m really pleased with the railings and am now anxious to finish! Please relay my thanks and appreciation to everyone who helped with this project.

Just wanted to express our thanks for the excellent product (railing for the Yale Ave. East property). Also the technical assistance you gave Coddington Construction was much appreciated by them and us. If we can ever be of help in communicating the excellence of the product and the help to other potential clients of your, please let me know.

I don’t know how to thank you enough! Not just for the excellent quality and service, but for the All Thread suggestion (much cheaper than the epoxy anchors I had planned on using), and for the WD40 trick on the metal cutting blade. Not only does it keep the blade from clogging, it really reduces the amount of deburring necessary. Mary and I are really happy with the results. She gets a big smile every time she goes in or out of the front door now. We both feel that it added more value to our house than the cost of the parts. Your railing are much nicer than the wrought iron ones we had originally designed and just a third of the cost and we get really cool lights and I get the benefit of doing it myself! Everything went together like clockwork. Your railings are relatively easy to assemble. The hardest part was dealing with the exposed aggregate on the steps. It took almost a whole day to chip it smooth and add a thin mortar layer to make it absolutely level for the base plates. But it was worth it; they look like they were installed when the house was built. The only complaint we have is that we didn’t meet you sooner. Send me a few business cards so if we have any friends that are considering something similar, they won’t have to wait.

Jeff Croman

Good Morning Mr. Hansen. I want to extend a special thanks to you and your team for a great performance on our high-rise condo tower. We really like the final product. Based on my experience with Hansen, please use me as a reference for future projects. I will highlight the fact that your team worked with us during the design phase and helped us save significant dollars. Thanks again, Tracy! I look forward to working with you again.

Ryan & I picked up our materials midday and were back to the house by about 1:30. The rail was up and beautiful by 4:30. Your design and execution are brilliant. Overall I am as impressed as I have ever been by something I’ve purchased for my house and I’ve been under construction on and off (lots of on) since 1971. The only problem is that your railing makes the railings on the rest of my decks look shabby. We’ll be back for more one of these days. You have been very helpful all along. Thank you very much.

I came home last night to a wonderful surprise! My finished patio! To say it looks wonderful is an understatement! The new patio’s make our building look AWESOME! Could not believe it! I was stunned! Our common area almost looks like the entrance to a spa hotel! Once the interior design for the landscaping is complete, our common area will look beyond what we could have ever imagined. Coby and Bob; you both ROCK! Although, my partner Lisa was approached and told by an onsite owner (who I believe has only come to one meeting out of many concerning anything to do with our patio project) complained to Lisa the common are now looks “colorless”. Lisa told her she was wrong, and the new enclosures look fantastic! Thank you Bob for putting a lock on our gate/door to our patio; we feel much safer and any privacy issues have been totally resolved! I am amazed at how great this project has come together! Thank you everyone for all your hard work and effort!

After just finishing the install of the Cable Rail system, we have nothing but good to say about the Hansen company. We are Harcon Construction a professional remodeling/construction company based in Cincinnati Ohio. Being this was our first time working with Hansen we were a little weary of how the process would work and the quality of the product. Jason Kosola was our sales contact for the project and made every effort to complete our business without incident. We recieved our railing via a shipping company on time and also got to talk with some very friendly people there as well. We have gotten nothing but compliments from the Homeowner of project. Jason worked with us thru the entire project and communicated very well, all of our questions were answered very quickly. We will be doing usiness with Hansen and Jason again.

Harcon Construction

As a homeowner of 24 years I have learned to be overly cautious when contracting services. Time has proven over and over that most companies fail to deliver the level of service they promise in at least one area and usually it is more than one. Hansen Architectural has proven to me to be one of the very few exceptions to that. I ordered a custom made canopy to provide some protection in front of my home, from the elements. The people were friendly and helpful through the entire process from initial contact to support with installation. I chose to install it myself, knowing that my project would require some on-site fabrication. Jason worked with me to ensure I had all the proper materials to fabricate these pieces. The custom kit arrived in superior packaging. No pieces were missing or damaged. All fasteners were packaged separately and I was amazed to find that I didn’t run short on any of them. The quality of the finish is very good, with no imperfections. The structure is extremely stronger than anticipated. This is clearly money well spent and I am already planning a 2nd phase to extend the canopy over a walkway to the house. The best part is that at the end of my project, I contacted Hansen to make a couple suggestions that I felt would further improve their product. They were very open to the ideas and were enthusiastic at the possibility of enhancing a great product. That it the kind of company I want to be associated with, people that really care.

Thank you to Hansen Architectural Systems, Inc. for your company’s efforts in supplying and installing glass handrail system at our QFC Grocery Store remodel project in Seattle. Tom Trocino and your installer Cecil pulled this off under the pressures of an extremely tight schedule, in a very professional manner, finishing a couple days early, and our client was extremely pleased with the final product.

I am a general contractor specializing in residential and commercial remodels. We periodically have projects that require a deck railing and have used Hansen Architectural Systems products. Since discovering Hansen Architectural several yearts ago we have not used any other system. We love the look and quality of what ever style we have used as do our clients. We always try to recommend and install products that look superior to the products available at the large “box stores” or “do it yourself” centers. Hansen Architectural Systems gives us that “high end” look that we like to include in our projects. The salesman that we work with is quick to respond to any need we have from needed parts, installation advise or meeting with opur customer to help sell the job. We could not be happier with Hansen Architectural Systems and will continue to call them for all our powder coated railing needs.

Bruce Christopher

We hired Hansen to install glass railing and a patio cover on our commercial property. They provided excellent quality products on time and on budget. We highly recommend Hansen for your project.

Janine Oswald

For a recent residential project in Seattle, we used an all glass railing system on a deck with a sweeping Puget Sound view. Hansen Architectural Systems was very helpful in coordinating the railing details with the architect, structural engineer and the contractor. The price quoted was the price billed. The installation was in a difficult location, and as in almost all construction projects, there were some bumps on the road. Hansen Architectural Systems really stepped up to quickly resolve the installation issues. The finished railing system is beautiful. I will certainly be recommending them for future projects.

Over the past 10 years , I have had the experience of building homes for my family , friends and clients. One of the most consistant super high quality and service companies has been Hansen Architectual Systems. We have used their cable and rail sytem on almost every project . The system works extremely well for all types of architecture and is a sytem favored by the local inspectures. The service is as well of the highest quality. We have rarely had to have Hansen to come back for adjustment. When we have they have been all over it. I have referred Hansen to many who have been remodelling who are looking for high quality details to add to their additions. I have always received very positive feedback in return. I would strongly recommend them for the smallest to the most detailed high end project. They are an absolute stand alone company and their products are built in America.

Last month I helped my father-in-law install your stainless steel cable railing product on his new deck. Neither one of us had ever installed a cable railing before. I was amazed at the customer service that your company applied toward our job throughout the entire project. When the railing was delivered, Tom not only helped unload it, but spent a substantial amount of time with us ensuring that the project started off on the right foot. Cecil’s assistance, tips and advice regarding the stair rail setup was invaluable. Your guys are top notch. In the end, the finished railing turned out so nice that I will recommend no other than Hansen Architectual Systems products to anyone inquiring about cable railing options. Thanks for such a great product and old fashion customer service!

wanted to send you this email regarding the excellent customer service I have been experiencing from one of your employees, Doug Heizenrader.
I live in Houston, Texas and am remodeling a lake house in Austin, Texas. I have dealt with Doug entirely on the phone and via email. I wanted to let you know he has been available for information, questions, issues, shipment tracking, etc. The deck measurements and stair railing were unusual because it was not a uniform size to deal with. I just wanted to let you know what great customer service I received from Doug. He was also involved with the deck contractor who was installing the railing system so had to deal with calls and emails from both of us. Very professional, timely and a fun person to talk to. Thank you for the great internet experience!
