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, Washington D.C., Pennsylvania, Virginia & West Virginia. We work with builders 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. We will help design the rail system, provide samples‚ answer questions, and work with the homebuyer throughout the entire stair railing installation.

Quality and Satisfaction for Homeowners

Railtec also provides custom stair railings for homeowners wanting to improve the look and value of their home. Updating existing balusters and handrails can dramatically change the look and ambiance of a grand staircase or balcony. It can also 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 and provide assistance. Additionally, they will answer any questions you may have regarding your stair railing 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.

Baluster Types

Balusters are offered in a variety of types. Square top and pin top balusters come in sizes 1.25" and 1.75" at the base. All balusters are either a primed white or stain grade oak or similar species of wood.


Newels are the large post in a rail system. They range in size from 3" at the base for smaller newels to 8"– 10" at the base for large trophy newels. They can also be obtained in paint grade or stain grade in different species of wood.


Handrails are available in most species of wood, including American Cherry, Brazilian Cherry, Maple, Mahogany, Walnut or Oak.


These two elements make up the actual stair– the tread is the area on which your foot rests; the rise is the vertical area beneath the tread. Stairs can be built to include radius or rounded treads at the bottom of the stair to be more attractive and inviting.
