With more than 40 years and two generations of experience, Burke Banisters & Stairways serves NJ homeowners and home builders with unparalleled construction and installation of a variety of custom stairs and railing systems, including curved, straight, winding and spiral and with a spectrum of materials, wood, metal or glass.
We consider every staircase and banister we build to be the focal point of a finely built home.
A Family Tradition
Michael Burke began his stair building career at United Stairs Corporation in Keyport NJ where he worked in the circular stair and cabinetry departments building custom creations. He broadened his exposure to new technology, materials, wood, metal and glass designs, and customer service while employed as production supervisor at a large central NJ stair and millwork company, as well as a 2-year stint in Bucks County PA as production manager of a large regional stair company overseeing production and installation divisions.
After years of learning the craft, he partnered with his son Paul, a stair and railing installer, to open what is known today as Burke Banisters & Stairways, building and installing custom stair and railing systems. Together, this family owned business is a dedicated Dream Team that is committed to ensuring the design, construction and installation of your project surpasses your expectations.
Our attention to detail and our love of the work we do enables us to provide the very best in quality. Whether you are building a new home or remodeling and older one, we have the desire and expertise to satisfy your wants and needs.
Unlike other stair companies, owners Michael and Paul personally oversee the entire project. Michael is your key contact from the initial design discussion to visiting the job site to meet you and measure the space. Michael writes the proposal for your review, and once the agreement is signed, collaborates with Paul to produce and install your work. Michael follows up with you at the end of the project to ensure that your specifications have been fulfilled and you are satisfied with the work.
Burke Banisters & Stairways is unique in that we do not send sub-contractors to your home; we install all of our own work personally. It is important to us that the stairs we build for you fit perfectly into its space.
