Custom Porch Spindles / Reproduction Balusters
Ordering custom porch spindles is easy. Just email with the following information:
Width & Height: If your spindle has square portions, width of the square(s). If completely turned, then the diameter of the spindle. Also include how long (tall)
Quantity: How many you need reproduced
Design: Give us some idea of the spindle design. Email a picture for a more accurate quote.
With the above information, we can immediately give you an estimate. Then if you’d like to move ahead with the order we can reproduce your spindle. For an exact match, send us an original to our address. If “close” is good enough, then a picture and dimensions will do.
Should I have custom porch spindles made, or choose one of your standard designs?
We offer many traditional spindle/baluster designs in several common sizes and lengths, and in both Wood and Synthetic. Our designs are reminiscent of popular architectural choices, and if you’re building a new porch, our standard designs will give your project the clean lines and distinguished appearance that a Victorian-era porch should have. For most of our customers, one of our several standard spindle design styles will work very well. But many of our customers want to refurbish their existing porch with new spindles/baluster, but want to retain the old design. This is not only possible, but is our specialty.
Having your spindles replicated by Western Spindle is a great way to preserve your home’s look. The cost difference when made in Cedar is usually minimal: generally, custom porch spindles / balusters cost only about 15% more each than one of our standard design spindles of the same size. We run high volume equipment that efficiently produces large quantities, but takes some time and money to setup. A small fee is passed on to the customer for smaller orders, but is waived on larger runs.
If you’d like to switch to our synthetic Polyurethane alternative, we can do that too. Choose one of our standard designs, or have your original reproduced. There is some extra costs involved with custom Poly spindles because they require the manufacture of a custom mold and associated tooling. Just send us a picture, dimensions, and quantity and let us quote your project.
Keep in mind that once we’ve made your design, we can reproduce an unlimited number of perfect reproductions. If you need to order more of the same custom spindle later, it’s no problem. We keep your design on file and can produce as many as you need. As with our standard designs, ordering spindles/balusters in larger quantities does qualify customers for a quantity discounts.
We create exact replicas of your spindle/baluster design.
In order for us to do this, send one original to our shop so we can create your custom design. If “close” is good enough, all we need from you are a few clear digital pictures and corresponding measurements.
As always, please feel free to email or call with questions. We look forward to helping you with your dream porch!
