Here are the 2 Key factors in building or remodeling your porch!
1) When you are building a new porch you will want to consult an architect and a licensed contractor.
They will know their way around the design and structural issues that will arise.
2) Deciding on what type of porch you would like for your home.
Open porch: This type of porch is most often associated with front porches, and often have wide steps leading to the front door.
Wraparound porch: This porch is often seen on older homes, they start at the entry and literally wrap around to at least one corner and side of the house; sometimes two.
Screened porch: Popular in regions with four seasons and lots of insects (like mosquitoes) in the summer.
Covered porch: A variation on the screened-in style, these porches are often like sunrooms, with lots of windows that open to let in the fresh air.
