We have a Victorian house that is about 115 years old that has a large wraparound porch. Some of the spindles needed to be replaced. Unfortunately, there are no companies in our area (the Upper Peninsula of Michigan) that still make custom spindles–it’s a lost art. After much searching online, I found several companies around the country and contacted them all to inquire about their interest and to get an estimate. The estimate from American Porch (in Montana) was neither the highest nor the lowest–we decided to go with them based on their prompt and courteous customer service. In fact, I later realized the person I spoke to initially on the telephone was the owner, Adam MacDonald. That personalized service, we learned, is a hallmark of this company. Adam and his crew helped us with getting the exact spindles we needed by creating a model based on one of our existing spindles. They kept us informed throughout the process, which was both on time and on budget. The end result is that the new spindles look exactly like the old ones, and now that everything is installed and painted, the entire porch looks beautiful and uniform. I highly recommend American Porch!

Great product value if you are considering a lifetime solution for exterior millwork. They worked with us through an epidemic and a couple of minor product changes to complete our order in a timely manner. The product arrived exactly as advertised.

American Porch made my life one heck of a lot easier. Between turning and priming save a bunch of time and
time =$. Product was great and the clients loved the end results.
Thanks Adam for the great job.

I design homes almost exclusively or home additions and most incorporate a deck or series of decks. My job is to show them the best bang for their bucks – the best street appeal and that is where American Porch comes in. They furnished me the catalogs and information to help me have all the right choices for preparing a design for the clients. They save me time and energy with having the selections for almost every need.

Victorian Porch Railing for R.S. of Victoria, TX

I wanted to let you know that the posts arrived and they are absolutely beautiful. We should have some photos to share in the coming weeks as the porch gets built.
One thing that I am realizing is that the original porch also had two half posts that went up against the house, and I wanted to see how much it might cost to have one more post made, cut down the middle, and when you estimate we might receive it.
We might just end up skipping this and having the railings go directly into the house, but I thought I’d check in about cost and timing for the two half posts. I’m kicking myself for not thinking of this sooner!
