About Us/Services


Our Company

Railtec is owned and operated out of Sykesville, MD by Bill and Diane Kirchhoff. Bill has more than 30 years of experience working in the home building industry, so his decision to start a business specializing in a home’s most impressive aesthetic feature was an easy decision. Bill is still involved with every client and project, providing estimates, overseeing quality and construction, and maintaining an easy-going work environment for his crew.

Diane keeps track of Railtec’s day-to-day business operations. While Bill is out in the field, Diane is back at the office making sure jobs are scheduled‚ clients are happy, and bills are paid.

Bill and Diane Kirchhoff maintain a regular crew of employees, all of whom are active in the daily operations of the company. Customers who hire Railtec don’t get a revolving door of subcontractors, but a consistent crew who’s skillset is custom-tailored to stair rail construction.



What We Do

Railtec has established an extensive and impressive list of customers‚ including builders looking to add value to new construction and homeowners looking to upgrade their home.

A Trusted Partner for Builders

We partner with only the best builders in Maryland – those who reflect the type and quality of work we produce.
Railtec works closely with custom and large residential builders who appreciate our ability to meet with their customers‚ alleviating them from that aspect of the homebuilding process. Railtec will help design the rail system, provide samples‚ answer questions, and work with the homebuyer throughout the entire process.



Quality and Satisfaction for Homeowners

Railtec also provides custom railings for homeowners wanting to improve the look and value of their current home. Updating existing balusters and handrails can dramatically change the look and ambiance of a grand staircase or balcony‚ and help transform an ordinary foyer into a true work of art.
For homeowners, we provide an estimate and design consultation. A design and construction specialist will meet with you to make recommendations, provide assistance, and answer any questions you may have regarding your project.


Staining & Finishing

With a professional stain and finishing department, we have the ability to match existing colors or custom blend colors for a beautiful finish on your stair rails.
