Railtec is central Maryland’s premiere stair railing company for a reason – we are a dedicated team of skilled craftsmen committed to improving the form and function of a home’s primary interior focal point. We proudly serve both homeowners looking to upgrade their stair railing system and local builders who look to us to add value to newly-constructed homes.

A Trusted Partner for Builders

Railtec partners with the best builders in Maryland, working only with those who reflect the type and quality of work we produce. We maintain good relationships with local custom and large home builders who appreciate our willingness and ability to meet with their customers in person, streamlining the process and freeing them to focus on the rest of the home’s construction. We help design the rail system, provide samples‚ and answer questions while working directly with the homebuyer throughout the entire stair railing installation.

Quality and Satisfaction for Homeowners

Railtec also provides custom stair railings for homeowners seeking to improve the look and value of their home. Updating existing balusters, handrails, or newel posts can have an extraordinary effect on any sized project – from a grand staircase and balcony to a small landing – and transform an ordinary foyer into an eye catching work of art. We provide a design consultation and estimate for each homeowner, meeting with you in person to make recommendations and map out the entire project and process.

Our Process

Railtec’s professionals work with you every step of the way – from your initial idea to your “WOW!” reaction.

  • 01 Concept

    Whether you have a clear vision or rely solely on our design recommendation, this is where we sit down and start to "sketch" things out.

  • 02 Design

    After we've sat down to discuss your vision and expectations, our designer will come up with a plan and associated cost.

  • 03 Estimate

    We will present your plan, a timeline and cost estimate. If you decide to move forward, we will collect a 33% deposit before work begins.

  • 04 Construction

    We'll tear down your old system and construction on the new one will begin; typical date of completion is approximately 4 weeks from estimate approval.

  • 05 Walk Through

    Once we've cleaned up after ourselves and shined up your new system, we will go over everything with you and make sure you're 100% happy before we leave.

Stair System Main Parts List

Railtec primarily works with House of Forgings, one of America’s leading distributors of quality railings‚ balusters‚ fittings‚ newels, handrails & treads. We provide the best possible materials and workmanship for our customers so their new system will last a lifetime.

Baluster Types

Stair balusters are offered in a wide variety of styles, materials, and finishes. From solid wood to forged iron and aluminum, the choices are nearly endless, enabling each customer to achieve their desired look.


Newels are the large post in a rail system, and arguably to first feature that’s noticed. They range in size from 3″ at the base for smaller newels to 8″– 10″ at the base for large trophy newels. They are also available in a wide variety of materials, finishes, and styles, from traditional to modern.


Handrails are available in most species of wood, including American Cherry, Brazilian Cherry, Maple, Mahogany, Walnut or Oak. They’re also available in other materials, including tubular metal.


These two elements make up the actual stair– the tread is the area on which your foot rests, and the riser is the vertical area beneath the tread. Railtec doesn’t typically handle stair treads and risers, but we work with partners who assist us in seamlessly completing your project.
