“well.. I bought my purple martin house, just this...”

Written on: 07/05/2011

well.. I bought my purple martin house, just this April and had it up and pole in the ground by april 5th, 2011. My first martin appeared on april 9th..I was so excited, and low and behold, his mate appeared quickly after him and then a 3rd one. So as far as the house being plastic and them not being interested in it, is like, untrue. Took them a little while to get comfortable, they nested and I am now an official purple martin landlord, we now have 2 eggs ! so much for the person saying… Read Full Review

I like the ease of putting up the pole, and the different uses I find for it. I use the pole to make a Christmas Tree out of lights tied to cord… Read Full Review

Had Martins on house two days after putting the SK Manufacturing, Purple Martin Bird House With Triangular Aircraft Aluminium 16 ft Telescopic Pole up. Sparrows love all bird houses. The Martins seem to prefer the S&K over my more traditional wooden house that they have nested in the last two years… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/04/2004 by Vanc Barber (1 review written)

SK Manufacturing Purple Martin Bird House - All of S-K Mfg. printed literature leads you down a primrose path, leading you to believe they have a great product. Martins will not give house a second look but the Sparrows love it. Tri-pole bent in moderate winds....e-mail to S-K unanswered...I believe this is a testimony to their integrity and reputation… Read Full Review

Of course they will not use the house, -if YOU allow the sparrows to nest! You must be patient and do everything to educate yourself about attracting the Purple Martin; ie, such as removing sparrow & starling nests, setting up traps, creating a secure area by adding a predator guard to the pole and away from trees, Putting up PM decoys and even playing recordings of their vocalizations at dawn. I know, sounds crazy, but its worth it.
Also if you call customer service at S&K,.. they will work wit you.. I have found them to be wonderful. Real people actually answer the phone... !!!

“I bought a Purple Martin house and 16 ft. telescopic...”

Written on: 21/08/2003 by cmatera (1 review written)

I bought a Purple Martin house and 16 ft. telescopic pole made by SK Manufacturing. The warranty said the house was warranted for life when mounted as directed on their triangular 16 ft. telescopic aircraft aluminum pole.
The Purple Martin house went together easily. It was made of plastic and was a simple matter of snapping parts together. It took about 45 minutes to assemble and required no tools.
The 16 ft. aircraft aluminum telescopic pole went together easily as well and following… Read Full Review

Well, I have the same pole for three years now. We do have simetimes quite strong winds in Wisconsin and 50mph are not too unusual.
<br>My pole has done fine so far - but the plastic Martin house is NOT being accepted by the birds. We watched at least two couples this spring investigate it but they left for some other place...

The House does come with a life time warranty when purchased with the Tri-Tel, Quad Tel pole, or S&K adapters. (Not sure what double talk you get out of that) The S&K House and pole is a very affordable and durable product (the company does stand behind their products). Storms with high winds do cause damage to all sorts of things (trees, homes, cars , and ...). S&K does offer the customer the ability to purchase sections of a pole instead of having to buy the whole pole. To throw away the house when you can get parts to repair it does not seem logical (a warranty is for a manufacturing defect, not for storm damage).
