“Several years ago, we moved an 1865 Victorian house from downtown Troy, Alabama. Through the moving process, we were able to preserve most of the original features of the house, but the porch had to be completely removed. In rebuilding the porch on the new location, we chose the standard building material in our area, kiln-dried tongue and groove pine, as recommended by our lumberyard. Even though we primed and painted all 6 sides of the boards and took great care to maintain it, within 5 years, the wood floor completely rotted, and became a major safety liability.
Finally, after being completely frustrated, and determined not to have to go through this same ordeal again, we did some extensive research and choose Aeratis as the best product to replace our porch. Our decision was based on its authentic look (it doesn’t look like a fake plastic wood imitation, like some of the other porch planks) and its history of exceptional performance (we couldn’t find any examples of product issues or complaints).
We couldn’t be happier with our new porch. It feels great and looks even better! Thank you so much for all your help!! ~ Laura
