PPS was started by Bill Whaley, a businessman in Seaford, Delaware in 2009. After moving into a new home the November weather took its toll on the screened porch and contents. An online order for “porch covers” got a set from somewhere down south and they lasted about a year. Convinced that, if designed and made from quality marine grade materials, homeowners would be interested, Bill met with local marine shops to pitch his idea. After pulling a business card off a billboard at a local marina he called “Jack” who liked the idea and offered to make a set for the new house. Surprised by the interest of relatives and friends the decision was made by Bill and his staff to launch Porch Protection Systems and porch protection.com.
Now, the porch curtain sets are shipped all over the USA and into Canada as DIY projects. Three fabrications shops now produce the systems and teams of installers roam the Delmarva Peninsula making homeowners extremely happy as their screened porches are clean, dry and warmer – all year round.
