Licensed professional porch remodeler
No matter which type of porch you envision, it’s essential that you hire an experienced, licensed professional Northern, VA remodeler to bring it to life. Front porches that are built poorly not only detract from the visual appeal of your home, they can prove hazardous to your largest investment. Water draining from improperly installed shingles, siding and gutters can damage your home’s structure, while unsafe decking poses a hazard and poorly built underpinnings can threaten the entire structure.
Things To Know About Building A Front Porch
Ideally, a full front porch needs to be ample enough for gathering. Seating space is important, as is having enough room to comfortably walk around the furnishings and each other. Once you’ve decided on the dimensions, you’ll need to give some thought to the design to truly experience the benefits of a front porch addition.
How will it fit in with the architectural style of your home’s exterior? Since Steadfast Construction has a high level of expertise in front porch construction, you can expect excellent design advice. We will help your feel confident about design options because you’ll see several 3-D renditions from which to choose. This will also ensure your new porch addition fits seamlessly into your home’s original design, rather than looking like an after thought.
It’s not too early to dream a little of the accessories you will include for your porch. Contact us to get you a quote so our team of porch builders can get started.
Frequently Asked Questions
The overall width of a front porch varies depending on the scale of the house, the budget and the front porch’s intended use. One goal should always be to maintain a clear and open area that helps to frame and highlight the entrance to the home.
The minimum recommended depth for a front porch is six feet. This is for good reason, as that allows enough room for you to incorporate chairs, potted plants, and/or other furniture with enough room to move around and walk in front of the furniture. At six feet, porch furniture is possible and you can reasonably enjoy the space. But eight feet is even better, as just two feet can vastly expand your options for furnishing.
