I am not sure why but finding someone to replace my half wall with balusters was one of the harder task so far. For some reason, I have the hardest time finding the right people to do the job. Can anyone else relate?

Although you can find me doing many home improvement projects, I was not confident enough to tackle this one. I was mostly concerned with the banister being stable. So I searched, interviewed, was stood up and a’last I found the right company for the job :).

AFTER

 

If you’re in the Houston area, here are the highly recommended details:

Company: Precision Stair Company, Houston

Job: The job included replacing the half wall with balusters, patching any wholes made with drywall, putty, and texture, and paint. Staining existing railing to match new rail.

Time Frame:  3 days, including time for putty and paint to dry

Cost: $1600.00

If you’re thinking of bypassing the cost and attempting this on your own, there were a few things that I picked up while watching the guys complete the job.

Before: That top base board of the half wall was used as the bottom base that holds the iron posts. How efficient!

After: The base board moved to the bottom and a support post installed. It was explained that it is federal regulation to install a deep seated post for ever so many balusters or feet. This supports the weight and length of the railing

 

Well, that’s all I have. Here are more pictures of the job through completion.

    Did the $1600 include labor and materials?
