handrail fabricator for residential property

Greetings,

The first 'highly recommended' guy seemed like a perfect fit, he answered all my questions, gave me a fair quote; I sent him images, then he couldn't commit to a date to do the work. I waited a couple weeks, he seemed eager to do it, just needed more time; this repeated a couple more times over a few months. I just stopped calling him back. I think the job was just too small for him to commit to it, dunno.

So now I'm looking for someone else. I did contact another company (and friend of the 2A community); I sent him the photos, sketch and dimensions. He also gave me great info, and recommended only using black aluminum, and attach with screws that would not rust. I've emailed him twice since, but he's no longer replying and he never gave me a quote. I think he was interested/willing but the job is probably just two small, only a few hours work.

That's the long story, point is I'm back at square one. I have permission from the HOA to have it installed, just want a simple, strong hand rail with basic spindles to support the rail.

Here's the short details:

The rail just needs to be a simple shape, 18" on the porch from the white porch post to the edge, then 15" corner to the steps, then 6 feet down two steps/pads toward the driveway. These measurements keep in a couple inches from the edge, and about a foot back from the driveway itself.

The property is in Laurel, near Fort Meade, MD.

Please just PM me if you need more details or photos, an approximate cost and when you might be able to do the fabrication. Thanks!

The job is essentially like this (this is not the actual picture of the porch/pad/steps):




Just one hand rail, will basically look like the one on the left walking down. There's only a few steps/pad, and it's shorter than this job, not as steep either.

Work load is off the hook right now , not sure why but I have lots to do . I finish one job and two come in , the main problem is finding people that really want to work all day . This is just my opinion as I see it .

I have a hard time committing to exact dates to start & finish as I have some jobs 2 months out .

Understood, thanks for the discussion.

No rush for this job, can just be a 'give me a heads up' when you are on your way kind of thing.

Here is the actual picture of the porch/steps/pad area. Just a few steps, need it to help an elderly person get to her vehicle when it's icy out, that's all. Just something that's no maintenance, strong and looks nice; nothing fancy.

Was hoping to find someone more local. Really wish Gunmetal had emailed me back, that seemed too perfect; I must have messed up his email address and probably should call him.
