About Us

Get to Know Us

Railtec is family 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, including their son Tommy, 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.

Railtec Railings specializes in custom designed and built stairs and stair railings. Make your home look uniquely your own with our design artist program to custom design the look you want for your home. We also sell stair railing parts in our online store. We are master stair builders and we also work with other stair builders to help them complete stair railing projects with online ordering of railing parts.

  • – Rich & Caroline Martin‚
    "I would like for you to know your installation team (Dennis and Brandon, I believe) 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! Please pass along my thanks to your wife for her advice on the double know railings as well.

    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!!

    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!

    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!

    Just wanted to say thanks so much for sending Dennis over to round out the rail top and put a coat of stain on that piece. Everything looks great.
