"My wife and I are not contractors, just do-it-yourself deck builders. We had no idea how to execute our vision for a seamless view of our wooded yard from our deck. That's where Keuka Studios stepped in and made the process easy. We immediately fell in love with their cable rail systems, their craftsmanship, and the variety of available styles. Having never built a deck before, let alone design and build a cable railing system, their help was invaluable. They helped us throughout the process of selection and design, and delivered a beautiful finished railing system ready to install. Their personal touch and advice was all the expertise we needed."
~ Bob Christensen, Princeton, NJ
"You have our undying support and endorsement should
anyone ask about our railing. We are immensely impressed with Keuka
Studios and the quality of the work; the heaviness and strength of the
posts is astounding, and I have no doubts it will outlast the rest of
the deck. Should we ever move from this location, we'll take the
railing with us!!! Your company should be proud to have such
professional employees working for them. It certainly made this
purchase a no-brainer!"
~ CeSanne & Bob Schwartz, Republic, WA
"At first I was hesitant to work with an out-of-state company - concerned that communicating my ideas might be difficult at best. I felt confident after the first phone call though and you never let me down since - that's why you will continue to be my go to railing fabricator"

"We obtained our dream house on the Oyster River in Durham, New Hampshire last November 2009. We started to renovate this house in December and are nearing completion. The property has over 270 of water frontage. Our architect, a personal friend and fellow triathlete, designed the house so that we would have interior and exterior space to take advantage of the view. He designed a narrow deck on our second floor, where we have our living room, kitchen and master bedroom, so that it would not impact the lower level or the view from the upper level. We wanted a rail system that would provide safety for the users of the upper deck but not block any of our spectacular view.
We were delighted to locate the Keuka Studios website and to learn of the rail systems that you make. We had envisioned a rail system with narrow metal posts capped with a 1-1 1/2 inch hardwood upper rail, with stainless steel wire rails spaced 4 to 5 inches apart. We were pleasantly surprised to learn about Keuka Studios' Ithaca Style Railing, as this was exactly what we were looking for. The rest is history and we now have installed the most beautiful deck railing in all of Seacoast New Hampshire. Not only do we think this, but everyone from our plumber to our house appraiser has raved about the "Unbelievable Rail System" on our upper deck.
Working with Jason White of Keuka Studios has also been a wonderful experience. He worked with our Architect, Rex Ingram, through the design phase of the project, kept us informed about the manufacture of the rail, and has followed up with its installation with our builder, who by the way, commented that the installation was simple and fast.
In short, we love our Keuka Ithaca railing, it is everything that we thought it would be and more."

"Keuka Studios was a joy to work with. My project required custom design work. They listened to my vision for my property, gave me sound advice and made it happen. I was very pleased with the quality of work and the professionalism of the entire staff. I enjoy the railings every day. They have increased the value of my property with the improvement in it's aesthetic appearance. They do not block the view of the water, but they have prevented the children from getting in harm's way. I was totally satisfied and would recommend them to anyone."
~ Carol Williams, Canandaigua, NY
"The new railing in our entrance has completely transformed the look of the room. We have quite a few people asking about the railing. We are very happy with our purchase."
~ Tomasz Wojcicki, Ontario, Canada
"It was a satisfying job as everything fit quite closely thanks to Dan's painstaking attention to detail. It's rare to find any production in today's business world that is carried out with such devotion to excellence"
~ Jean-Paul Muller, Winter Haven, FL
"We truly think that the railings have created a unique/elegant look for our deck and are very pleased."
~ Kimberly Melvin, Fuquay Varina, NC
"Thanks for all your help with replacing the wooden railings on the balcony of our house with beautiful wrought iron. As you know the wooden railings were completely rotted out and I was skeptical with replacing them with something different than the original. However, you were able to make our decision of selecting wrought iron simple by allowing us to view what the railings would look like using a digital image sample on our home. Seeing the finished product before it was actually there was perfect."
~ Jerry and Joanne Caschette, Mendon, NY
"Keuka Studios really listened to our needs to have a driveway entrance gate that was original, functional and safe. We are very happy that the final result matched the digital previews that Dan put together. By using the pictures, it was easy to choose from the various designs. We'll enjoy the gate for many many years. "
~ Dave and Nancy Nachbar, Pittsford, NY
"Dan was able to turn an ordinary hand railing request into something special. The hand rail system design shows an architect-like approach proving the old adage "less is more". The "Keuka Lake" gate has become an art object. Everything is strong and sturdy with a permanent and forever feeling. Five gold stars. "
~ Gene and Angela Foster, Keuka Lake, NY
"Over the past several years, I have purchased several pieces of Dan's work and have been extremely pleased with his craftsmanship. I view Dan's work as pieces of art. Dan is very meticulous, pleasant to deal with, and always willing to accommodate his customer. "
~ Deborah J. Freeman, Hamondsport, NY
"Dan did an incredible job in designing and installing a cable railing for our deck that would not block our marvelous view of Keuka Lake. He also helped with the deck design at a crucial stage of the project. That effort contributed much to its functionality as well as its appearance. "
~ Jerry Markham, Keuka Lake, NY
"The product turned out very nicely and your support was greatly appreciated. I received very positive comments on the handrail from the building occupants. I enjoyed working with you both and would not hesitate to recommend your products, services, and company to anyone. Thanks again."
~ David Langman, Anchorage, AK
"I just wanted to drop you a quick note to tell you how pleased I am with how our railings look. The quality, appearance and craftmanship of your product is truly of exceptional caliber. We've had to manage dozens of contractors and suppliers for this little back yard project we have going, but your company and product truly rise to the top when compared. Thanks very much for all that you've done, and we look forward to inviting you over to share in our view once the project is complete."
~ Darrin D. Nelson, Webster, NY
"The step rail and gate are marvelous! Truly a work of art. I've been passing along your card and phone number to those in awe of your fine workmanship. Thank you for a magnificent job!"
~ Heather Farnsworth, Pittsford, NY
"I am extremely happy with my new railings! I have an odd-looking contemporary house, and the addition of these railings have really changed its curb appeal. They are the first things visitors notice -- and comment upon -- when they come to my home. I can't say enough good things about Keuka Studios: their work is imaginative and stunning, the quality of their products is outstanding, and their customer service is without equal. I shopped far and wide for railings before I came upon them, and the contrast in experience between dealing with the other vendors and with Keuka was amazing. And their support continued well past the sale: they worked closely (and patiently) with my contractor to make sure he understood how to install the railings properly. I could not be happier, and I look forward to my next project using Keuka's products!"
