The best time of year to build a porch in Tennessee depends on the type of porch you are planning. Generally, porch construction is best done during temperate seasons such as late spring or early fall when daytime temperatures are mild and there is less chance of inclement weather.
One of the most common porch building problems in Tennessee is improper drainage, which can lead to standing water and other moisture-related issues. This is especially true for screened porches that may not be built with a proper pitch or slope to allow for proper water runoff. Another common porch building issue in Tennessee includes settling or foundation shifting, which can cause porch columns and posts to become loose or unlevel, resulting in structural instability.
In Tennessee, the most popular porch styles are Colonial, Craftsman, and Farmhouse. Colonial porches feature a classic style with a single-story porch that typically features Ionic or Doric columns and railings as well as wood planking for the flooring.
