Attention to Detail

Look at your porch carefully, do you want columns or railings, will your new porch enhance your front door and windows? If you have a covered porch with living space, determine if you need historical tongue and groove decking. During renovation you may discover original details that have been covered up for decades, by siding or other material, from an earlier project. Using modern materials, you can reconstruct your home to bring back its original beauty, while matching the historical design of your house.

Attention to styles and materials helps maintain the historical look of your home. Generally, there are two types of styles and material to consider; tongue and groove fir or stained grade or a paint grade. Composites are also important, they are more durable, last longer, and are more flexible to match the style of your porch.

What Material to Consider?

When to Call a Professional?

Sometimes the job is too big, or you might discover problems that may require a specialist. If you discover rot or if your porch is sagging, it might be time to get some help. Water can cause damage to your porch’s foundation which could be a bigger issue than you want to repair yourself.

Help extend the life of your new porch so it lasts another 100 years. Repaint it every five years, check to see if there are holes that need patching or seams that need to be caulked. Avoid rot by ensuring your downspouts are directed away from any main supports.

Remember to honor the style and historical value of your home when replacing your porch. You can use modern materials to beautify your home, and still create the look your historical home deserves.
