Begun in the mid 90s by Bill and Diane Kirchhoff, Railtec has always been a family affair. In the early days, while Bill took care of estimates, oversaw quality, and handled construction, Diane kept track of day-to-day business operations – scheduling jobs, keeping clients happy, and paying bills. Their son Tommy began to learn the trade at an early age; not only honing his skills as an expert craftsman under Bill’s watchful eye, but learning what it takes to run a successful business and keep customer satisfaction front of mind.
Fast forward to 2020… After Bill and Diane retired from day-to-day operations, Railtec welcomed in the 2nd generation of Kirchhoff at the helm, as Tommy seamlessly stepped into his dad’s shoes to keep pushing Railtec forward. Tommy leads a team of craftsmen employed by Railtec – not just a revolving door of contractors – whose skillset is custom-tailored to stair rail design, construction and installation, with an unwavering focus on quality and dedication to their craft. Railtec’s craftsmen take an important aesthetic feature of your home and transform it into a focal point – guaranteeing to leave a lasting impression for all who see it.

Thank you so much for the excellence your team brings/brought to our project! It all looks so good! We are thrilled and will give your name out to all we meet with similar needs. Best to you.
Thank you! We are very pleased with your service and products.
I really appreciate the excellent work and attention to detail that you and your team provided when you replaced our stair treads, risers, railings, spindles and newel posts. I'm sure our paths will cross again someday and I will be sure to recommend Railtec to any of our family and friends that are looking for a good contractor with expertise and experience in stair and railing work.
Just wanted to say thanks so much for sending your guy over to round out the rail top and put a coat of stain on that piece. Everything looks great.
Thanks for a job well done. Very happy with your installers and the way it turned out.
Railtec did a wonderful job updating my stairs. They replaced the original wooden balusters with metal and the result is amazing. Also, the increase in value to my home from upgrading my stairs is more than the cost! They also fixed some issues that I had been living with and believed could never be corrected. Fair price and great workmanship, friendly and professional all the way!
Railtec did an exceptional job inside my home and I truly can't recommend them enough. Tommy was punctual, did a fantastic job, and I have been very wowed by the results. They have my utmost appreciation!
Thank you for a wonderful job well done.
Thanks for everything‚ especially rearranging your schedule for us; railings look great!
Thank you! By the way, your worker came to our home to do work just as we were literally leaving town for 2 weeks, so we didn't see the finished product. We returned home yesterday and discovered excellent work! Thank you so much. I will recommend Railtec when possible!
I love it!!!! It’s nicer than I expected.
The railings look great. Your company has been a pleasure to work with... Thanks again for the great work and craftsmanship.
Railtec did a fabulous job replacing my railing and installing steps and risers. Tommy was great, he texted and mailed ideas and worked easily with me to refine the details and provide an estimate. They matched the flooring perfectly. The installation crew did a perfect job. I can't believe how great they look!!
Outstanding experience! Professional and extremely reasonable. Highly recommend Railtec Railings.
Bill, class A1 job.
I would like for you to know your installation team did an excellent job! Not only was their work of the highest caliber, but they were courteous and attentive to my suggestions. As well, when done, they removed all debris and left my home cleaner than when they entered it! Thank you for your services! It was a pleasure doing business with you and I will certainly call upon you again when I need it.
I am completely enamored with my staircase! You did such a beautiful job and I absolutely love it. Even on the handrail going down the basement steps, the decorative iron brackets you used are a very nice touch. Thank you so much - your workmanship is outstanding!
Thank you for replacing our stair rail. Your workers were very careful‚ neat and efficient. We are just delighted to finally have the old metal rail replaced.
We are very pleased with the final results!
Thanks‚ great job!
