Grandview Gates recently installed a simple, yet elegant wrought iron handrail bordering the 10 steps leading up to our Barrie residence's main entry door. Surprising, we have done without a railing of any sorts in this location for more than 16 years! We are now in our 70's, so the current reasoning and need for a railing is more than obvious! Grandview's name was referenced to us by a local glass replacement contractor who had performed some work for us a week or so previous. Michael immediately responded to our railing inquiry, answering all of our many questions, and quickly provided us with a more than fair estimate. From original sit down until work completion, the total duration was less than 2 weeks! That's hard to beat! The final product displays attention to detail, with first class workmanship and powder coat finish. Enclosed are a three photos we took this past Tuesday evening (10:00 p.m. thereabouts), following a heavy downpour! The overall visual effect, with the house lighting on, looks good. Without a doubt, we can highly recommend Mike and his Company to anyone demanding quality workmanship, delivered in a timely fashion. Andy & Corrie (in Barrie, Ont.)
My husband and I just completed building our home in the Sugarbush. This was a very difficult build which took nearly 5 years to complete. The last thing required in order to receive our occupancy through the municipality was stair railings. We had looked at a number of “cookie cutter” options, but the stairs were curved and we felt that custom made railings would be more appealing. Mike was meticulous and conscientious. Due to fact that the stairs and walkways were natural stone, he made several visits to our home to measure and remeasure to ensure it was just right. Beautiful job!!! After such a long difficult build with many obstacles we are grateful to Mike for finish this project off like a pro. Wanda Miller
"We've just had new railings installed for our front porch and we couldn't be happier. Mike was great to work with. He listened to what we wanted and did not try to "sell" us anything extra. He just wanted to give us exactly what we wanted in a timely manner and within our budget. Anything he suggested just improved our choice. He answered every question and kept in regular contact until the job was done. We are more than satisfied and would recommend him highly to anyone who required excellent wrought iron work by a true professional and we wish him every success in the future." Any problems, let me know. Thanks, Sonny Allen - Alliston, ON
This is just a short note to tell you how pleased we are with our railing! We love it! Thank you...your work is perfect...the railing is exactly what we designed and you have been a pleasure to do business with. We will certainly recommend you to our family and friends. In fact, I have already posted two pics of our new railing on Facebook, with a link to your website. May it bring you more business! Thanks again Mike! Marie and Richard - Barrie, Ontario.
Mike of Grandview Gates did an amazing job on my curved handrail. He custom made a beautiful simple and understated handrail for my front steps. Gave me lots of options as he is an artist but I wanted simple simple simple and that’s what he gave me! He even added some cute hooks for me to hang planters on. It definitely added to the curb appeal of my house and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone. I thought I would have to go to Toronto to get what I was looking for so it was so nice to find someone local. Thanks again! Jodi Libralesso
Mike took our protracted thoughts and fashioned them into “a beautiful thing”. A skilled and knowledgeable craftsman that’s very capable of supporting hesitant homeowners. Thanks for our fabulous railings and your outstanding customer service. Luella and Larry, Apto
We are very pleased with the railing you installed today at our front entry. You helped us work through our criteria until we were confident with the basic design. Then you went beyond what we expected and created something simple and elegant. It is quite lovely. Thank you. You are obviously a professional. As well we appreciate that you kept appointments on time, and delivery on time. Regards, Wayne and Lorraine Coombes
We got referred to Mike from Grandview Gates by our landscaper. My wife and I met up with Mike and we were very pleased with him. He guided us through the design for our railing project. He made the process from start to finish very easy and satisfying. We were always kept in the loop with progress updates, which we appreciated. After he did our railings. We had him build us a side gate as well. We will definitely use him again for any future projects. We highly recommended him to all of our friends and family. The work and quality is outstanding...... thanks Mike! Mark & Donna
I would like to thank Mike for taking me as a customer. Last year I did a large patio in my back yard and added a beautiful set of stairs coming out of my house. We knew then we would have to have custom handrails made, but what we didn't know, was who to trust. I got tired of surfing the net and asked a co-worker if he knew a pro who could assist me. The only person for the Job is Mike, owner of Grandview Gates. I called Mike and was blown away with his suggestions. He dropped by to see my property and take measurements. I was so impressed! This guy is busy and my job wouldn’t make or break him. Little did he know, without quoting the job, it was a done deal. Keep in mind, if you want cheap go to the big box stores, if you want quality and custom professional installation, call Mike. I have been showing off the picture of our handrail all day. We just love it. I have a feeling it won't stop any time soon. Mike, from Lesley and myself. I can't wait for the next job. Carl and Lesley, Alliston Ontario.
We are extremely pleased with the workmanship that went into the design and build of our railing. It was such a pleasure to work with Mike/Grandview Gates. They exceeded our expectations with every detail and we could not be more happy. We are looking forward to working with them again in the future. Thank you Grandview Gates! Crystal & John, Barrie Ontario
Mike was true to his word. He completed the work on time, on budget, and the railings look spectacular. He then followed up with us a few weeks later (unprompted) to inquire if we were happy, which of course we were. He was a pleasure to work with. A true professional. We highly recommend him if you need railings or any job...continue reading letter of reference.
Thanks for the great job on the railings that you installed. They are everything that we could have asked for. The finish and the installation were superb. We would not hesitate to refer you to anyone looking for a superior product. Thanks, Bill and Jackie
Recently, GRANDVIEW GATES, designed , fabricated and installed a custom handrail for my front entrance. Michael, listened to my needs, problem solved the area and had an array of finishes to suit my home perfectly. The work was done on time and was at a reasonable cost. Michael took care in both designing and installing his work showing pride in workmanship. He was honest , straightforward and a good communicator. I would immediately call upon him if I ever needed any metal work done again. It's beautiful!

Grandview Gates installed our outside railing exactly how we envisioned it & more! Mike listened to our input, was extremely knowledgeable & delivered quality workmanship. He completed the work on the scheduled time frame & followed through on the estimate. We have had many compliments on our railing. I would definitely recommend Grandview Gates!

The owner of Grandview Gates was recommended to us by a friend. He came to our house to discuss options and to give an estimate. He answered my questions in a friendly and professional way – we had quite the humorous chats. I inquired about a previous design on another one of his projects and he adapted that design to fit the size of railings for my place. He explained the product and the steps involved in the fabrication process. He kept us informed on the progress at each stage and the installation went flawless. Friends and neighbours told us how impressive the railings look. We would like to express our delight and satisfaction to Michael for our new railings and would not hesitate to recommend him to others. We greatly admire them.
