NorCal just built and installed new railings to match a set that had been built a few years ago. I had been concerned about finding someone to match the work but Mike’s work was precise and of the highest quality. My railings are posted in his photo library (they have a tulip shaped design). In addition to the excellent craftsmanship, Mike was a real pleasure to work with, professional, and his price was reasonable. I couldn’t have been more satisfied.
Here’s why NorCal Ornamental deserves a 5-star rating from me: First is the work quality. We wanted a handrail that is befitting of an all-new entrance to our home, including new stone steps, an enlarged landing, new redwood fence/wall and landscaping. In addition to a beautiful, light appearance, the handrail that Mike Mendes and NorCal Ornamental built and installed is rock-solid. Just as important, though, is the design execution. We had no drawn plans to show. We just referred to a few website examples and then, in words, described “a look” that we were hoping to achieve. Mike took it from there and built a handrail that is perfect for the location and that complements all the other work we have done. His work, alone, is a highlight of our entrance. We could not be happier.
We connected with NorCal Ornamental to build and install new stair railings following a floor remodel in our home. The process was very easy – Mike was very responsive and communication was done primarily through texts. The extent of planning from my end was minimal – just a quick call to discuss and some example pictures, and the finished product came out wonderful. Mike did a great job considering the impact of mounting the railings on passageway space, and I consider this job to be a huge improvement on what we’ve had before, vs. just a replacement. Thank you!
