D.M. of Cleveland, TN writes “I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of balustrade, but more so with customer service! As a box of porch spindles became separated in original shipping, I was immediately reassured and traces were sent out to retrieve the missing spindles. Back to drop site in 2 days, no need for additional spindles to be turned causing possible delay! Thanks for your concern and professionalism! Satisfied customer.”
