Aeratis Porch Products


New Orleans homeowners know well the challenges that come with repairing, updating, or restoring an old home. Not only are many of the architectural details costly to acquire, but local regulatory offices have intricate rules for what work can be done and how. As a manufacturer of historically accurate, exterior building materials, Aeratis is a good name to know. The company’s solid extruded PVC Tongue & Groove Porch Planks, Ceiling, and Historically Accurate Shutters are proven to out-perform wood, polypropylene, polyethylene and open-cell PVC products.

According to Chris Tidwell, Owner and VP of Sales and Marketing, Aeratis products provide a cost effective way to fortify your porch and shutters against nature while standing up to the scrutiny of the most discerning traditional architects, builders, historic societies, and homeowners.

Aeratis provides the only synthetic product that has been approved on some historic properties (case by case basis) by the VCC Architectural Committee. The company was approved by the National Register of Historic Places for use on the Oak Alley Plantation. Currently, Aeratis has been installed on several projects in the French Quarter and HDLC.
