Ping Guo

I recently used Bay Area railings to have staircase and balcony cable railings installed for one of my projects. They have done a great job. Railings are beautiful and exactly as I hoped. They are professional and their price is competitive. I highly recommend them to others and I would use them again for my next project.

I had a fantastic experience with Paul and his team at Bay Area Railings. They recently designed and installed a custom hand rail for my stairs. Given the uniqueness of the wall structure, the job was a little more challenging. Nevertheless, that handled the situation with professionalism and care. I would highly recommend Bay Area Railing! Paul made the task achievable.

Richard Palmer

I recommend Bay Area Railings for high quality, modern stair railings. Paul was able to quickly assess our outdated interior staircase and suggest a railing style and design that was even better than we imagined. He provided a virtual rendering of our railings so we knew exactly what we were getting, which I really appreciated. He works quickly and was priced competitively.

I found them on Yelp and since I first spoke to Paul , I knew my search for the right railing company ended. Paul was very informative and answered all my queries. Response time is good. Communication is good. Pricing is definitely better than others. Quality is good. The guys who came to install weee very knowledgeable. Anthony and his team mate ( sorryI forgot your name) My bad! They are super busy so give them enough time to plan and get the correct product to you. Thank you Paul and your team.

Melissa G., Piedmont, CA

“I dealt with two other rail vendors for 1.5 years and they both put me in a bad situation.
Basically I gave each vendor a deposit but they never completed the project. Terrible. Paul
sympathized with my situation and came to the rescue. I appreciate Paul and Bay Area Railings!
After working with Paul, I realized that the other vendors didn’t know the business inside and out
like Paul. He provided me with several CAD drawings so I knew exactly how the rails would look
and he also gave me really sound advice on the design. Paul was responsive to all my
questions and requests and the project was done smoothly in a timely manner. In fact the rails
are beautiful and look like they were meant to go with my house. Thanks again to Paul and his
team!”

David B., San Francisco, CA

“Paul and his team were amazing, and I would recommend ONLY going to them if you are in
need of indoor or outdoor railing. They did amazing work, were a pleasure to deal with, and
were priced competitively”

Alex C., Novato, CA

“Paul Petruzelli of Bay Area Railings was easy to contact and provided a free on-site
assessment at our house. He uncovered very few studs in the wall our new stair rail would be
attached to and this thorough inspection meant the actual install, by a two person team, went
smoothly. Paul provided useful input on the style and utility for replacement guard and stair rails
in our little townhouse, clearly took pride in his work and also offered competitive pricing. This
was a professional service and we’d recommend checking them out for your project.”

Chris O., San Francisco, CA

“Bay Area Railings offers great craftsmanship and professionalism in railing projects. The work
was done quickly and beautifully.”

Donna J., Castro Valley, CA

“Paul Petruzzeli is an instinctive designer who balances function with aesthetics. We needed a
safety railing for a step down living room. Paul understood my basic safety design concept and
created a safety railing that was also modern and sleek. The final product was beautiful creating

Dina T., Vallejo, CA

“This railing company was awesome. My Dad is 78 years old and needs rails to go up and down
the stairs. They were the perfect design and very very sturdy. I’m so grateful for what this
company did for my Dad. I will refer them.”

E L., Burlingame, CA

“Wow! As good as it gets. Paul and his team are not only experts on the process, but true artists
of what looks good. Paul’s feedback on how to optimize our space was the best I’ve
experienced. What I also found especially important is Paul shared how I can maintain and care
for the iron railings over the years – no other contractor shared this. I’m surprised this company
doesn’t have 100+ reviews, they are busy and aim to please. Paul can get into the science of
iron and its care. Highly recommended!”

Dan M., Daly City, CA

“I contacted Paul to install a porch rail and columns a few months back. I was very pleased with
how he patiently responded to all my questions. He was reasonably priced, his crew was great,
and I was very happy with the final product. I would highly recommend.”

Carrie R., San Francisco, CA

“Paul’s work is very well-crafted and he takes his business seriously. In addition, he went above
and beyond, working over the holiday, and on very little notice, to pull off a miracle and built and
installed a gorgeous railing all within about a week from when we met, and under two weeks
from our first contact. He was also easy to work with – respectful and a clear and responsive
communicator. I would highly recommend Paul and Bay Area Railings.” 

Barbara V., Petaluma, CA

“Paul was very helpful in deciding what type of railings I should install for our elderly parents
without them looking like Handicap Railings. I had several conversations with Paul to decide on
the look and type of installation that we needed and he paid attention to our needs and made
helpful suggestions. We had Paul manufacture 2 railings, which he very efficiently installed. He
and his team were not only professional, but also cleaned up after themselves and were very
friendly. I can definitely recommend Bay Area Railings!!”

Nadine R., Oakland, CA

We scanned all the handrail sites’ photos from high end to mundane, and then found Paul. He
is a one-man operation. He is hard working and cares about his product. We liked one particular
photo on his website and asked for similar handrails. He went out of his way to install similar
ones that look wonderful to us. We highly recommend Paul.”

Paul R., San Anselmo, CA

“A great job by Paul. He took my railing conception and rough drawings and translated them into
an object of beauty. Both during his initial visit as well as installation. All good!”

J P., Fremont, CA

“After trying for 6 months to get simple railings put outside our doors Bay Area Railings came
through for us. They came to our home even though it was outside their normal service area. All
communication was done via the internet by text and pictures. They were at our house when
they said they would be and they did a great job. I definitely recommend them!”

Pat A., Benicia, CA

“When I discovered Paul and Bay Area Railings it was the perfect fit. I needed handrails to
make my inside steps safe. I wanted a simple but classy look. I luckily found Paul at Bay Area
Railings who created exactly what I wanted. I was so impressed with his work that I hired him to
create two more sets of railings for other steps in my home, and referred him to friends to do
their steps as well. I could not be happier with the craftsmanship of Paul’s work, and the
reasonable price he charges for it. Paul is also a great person to work with — reliable, respectful,
kind. He truly listens to your ideas while providing his always artistic suggestions. Paul and his
company are the absolute best!”

Steve T., San Rafael, CA

“After carefully evaluating at least a dozen residential railing companies in the Bay Area, Paul
far exceeded them all! Exquisite craftsmanship in every detail of my new multi-level guardrail,
hand rail, and a custom designed gate that is magnificent. Might I add that his prices are quite
reasonable. Thanks again Paul for bringing my dream to reality!”

Barbara C., Fremont, CA

“Paul Petruzzelli was helpful, efficient and did a beautiful job on my three railings. We were very
pleased with the railings and the professionalism of the team!”
