We ordered and installed Jim's beautifully made MOUNTAIN LAUREL HANDRAILS several years ago in a mountainous area known for it's heavy amount of snowfall each year. Our handrails did not let us down, they have withstood harsh weather elements just fine. We've never failed to receive compliments on the uniqueness of the design, it has been the finishing touch to our rustic mountain home. Working with Jim (across country) was so easy, he 'delivers' on his products and stays in touch to insure customer satisfaction and product durability.We give MOUNTAIN LAUREL HANDRAILS a 6 out of 5 stars rating!

I’ve had my Mountain Laurel hand rails for 10 years and have always received RAVES about how beautiful and cool they are. We live by the beach and the vibe is exactly what I needed in my home. They were excellent to work with and I am planning on using them again for our new build at Smith Mountain Lake Virginia this upcoming year !

The decision to add branch railing added more rustic charm to our rental cabin, Bailey’s Cabin On The Creek, in Bryson City, North Carolina. Even though James with Mountain Laurel Handrail makes handrails to install, we decided to take on the project ourselves. When we picked up the branches, Pete and Cam shared their tips and tricks on creating these unique railings over the years. Now, we have beautiful handrails at our cabin for all to enjoy. Thanks guys!

It was a pleasure working with James to custom build some rails for a staircase. They are absolutely beautiful. James promptly returned all calls and emails and was more than willing to discuss our DIY project and gave us pointers for installation. The way business should be conducted. Thanks.

James did our western cedar wood and Laures deck rails about 15 years ago. The Laurels are like new, naturally aged. Everyone that seem them is impressed. We are so happy with them.

Laurel hardwood handrails add such a unique “look” to any project. James and his team do a great job with this unique product. I added laurel handrails on my treehouse deck and stairway and they always get rave comments when people see them for the first time. I highly recommend them.

Our Landscape design firm, Aristotle Design Group designed and built a tree house using Mountain Laurel Handrails for the front porch. James’ offerings were a unique option that perfectly matched our clients’ aesthetics and blended perfectly into the wooded surroundings.

Great product, great experience. Note that we hired a carpenter to install the rail, so I can’t speak to that part of it.

Amazing company! We purchased just the mountain laurel material because we wanted to incorporate the existing top and bottom logs on our River Cabin in 2013. Fast forward to 2022 and the logs we saved were now rotten but the mountain laurels were good as new, so we re-used them in the new railings. Absolutely love them!!

Has been able to supply me with all I have needed to do my railings on three structures at our lake house. We always get the question”where did you get the material?” And I always tell them about James and his company’s work.

I enjoyed working with James. He was very helpful and super responsive to all my questions as we went through the process. The quality, beauty, and true uniqueness of the laurel railings he built for my rock stairs in the back of my NC mountain cabin exceeded my expectations.

Received rails that were well packaged. Took a little planning to figure how to cut and mount, especially the corners with a 45 degree angle. All turned out well and am pleased with the final product.

I can't say enough good things about Mountain Laurel Handrails and James Pader. Not only are the handrails beautiful and exactly what we wanted, the customer service was also superlative. James was very responsive when I had questions about measurements and installation instructions. One of the rails was damaged in shipping and James immediately sent a replacement. The handrails definitely add the perfect final touch to our tree house.

These handrails really set off the rustic look in our cabin. I shopped around and although there are other companies that make a similar product, they were out of our price range. I was so happy to find these.
