R.Q. of Marshall, MI writes “We want to thank you for the beautiful spindles. Attached are some photos you are welcome to use.  We now have all porches, roof gallery, etc. completed.  We appreciate your fine work.  Let me know if you want a photo of the National Register Marker to go with the photo.  Thanks again for the help.”

J.D. of Philadelphia, PA writes “A few years ago I purchased a primed cedar rail kit with custom turned spindles.  The custom cut profile I created was for a baseball bat and ball spindle.  The rail kit was easy to install and I enjoyed working with American Porch.  Some photos are attached to this and the next email.

Hey Adam,
Yes the project was completed a few weeks ago, and we love it. The balusters and railing look great and we’ve received many complements from neighbors.
Only issue was a few balusters were broken when they arrived, but I ordered extra and you credited me for those.
Here are some pics:

This is a fun one.  4″ class 3-piece Porch Rail System made to match the curve of the rounded deck.  The builder was very creative in making sills for lanterns that, used in conjunction with the curved rail, really sets this deck apart.  This also shows the use of the newel post anchors well.

This beautiful project included the most popular setup we have available:

  • 8″ Raised Panel Newel Posts
  • 6″ class 4-piece Porch Rail System
  • 3 1/2″ Classic Spindles

Because it is a decorative balustrade (no access and therefore no building codes apply), they used a 30″ Top Rail Height.  Beautiful work guys!

T.B. of Frankfort IL writes “Wanted you to see your beautiful product. Thank you for all your help in this process. It turned out wonderful!! I can take more pictures next year with landscaping, if you want.”

This customer approached us with a request for flat sawn balusters.  This sawn baluster design was inspired by our Revival Porch Spindle and cut out of flat stock cedar.

“Adam, here are photos of our new porch.  [We] just finished painting this morning.  I might add some more trim to the newel posts to doll them up a bit, but we are very happy with the railing and your products.  Check out our great new granite step!”
Adam: “Wow G.!  The white rail is truly eye catching!  Also, I love the stone step.  My ancestors were stone masons and there is still a lot of cut stone architecture in central Montana from their work.  We would be honored if, with your permission, we could use your nice pictures in some of our marketing materials.  We would of course keep your information completely private.  Thanks for the pictures G.  Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help.”
G.: “Yes, please do use those photos.  I’d be proud to see our project in your adverts.  Glad you liked our granite step.  Have a look at our columnar basalt driveway marker!  My carpenter buddy who helped me with the porch is  – in real life – actually a stone sculptor, family from Pennsylvania.  I have a number of sawn balusters left over, and next spring we’ll get a few more, plus more railing parts, and do the back porch.  Thanks again, and all the best,  G.”
This project also used our 6″ class 4-piece Porch Rail System.  Flat sawn balusters are fairly forgiving as to which rail system you can place them on.  View our different porch rail system options here.
To order sawn balusters for your porch railing project, give us a call and we’ll send you a quote.  We’ll get them made, primed, and shipped to your door right when you need them.

A huge “Thank You” to this Minnesota customer for sending pictures of this beautiful porch.

This homeowner wanted to keep the profile of their original porch railing.  We reproduced the rail profile in cedar, with the slight modification of a sloped bottom rail and notched spindles to avoid problems with water sitting on the bottom rail.
