Hooshang Rashidi, owner and operator of H R Stairs & Rails has been building, renovating, replacing staircases, for over 20 years. We have done countless jobs throughout the Washington DC Metropolitan Area and are proud of the work we do. When we install or replace staircases, railings, balusters, newel posts, we take the utmost care to ensure that the end product is not only aesthetically pleasing but is durable, safe, and long lasting.

What Makes us Different?

Countless satisfied customers, numerous recommendations, and outstanding reviews are trademarks of our success, but it is our process and craftsmanship that ensures we can exceed expectations on every project.


Every job is different. Whether we are replacing broken stair cases or installing a new oak staircase, all projects start with a phone call or an email. Some smaller jobs can be discussed over the phone and a price provided, but most jobs involve a visit to the work site where we can discuss the project at length.
