A porch is a structure that is generally attached to the front or back entrance of a home. The porch is external to the walls of the main house, but the porch may be enclosed by screen, latticework, broad windows, or other light frame walls extending from the main structure. Porches typically are architecturally unified with the rest of the house, while decks typically are open to the sky and do not necessarily integrate in design with the rest of the structure.
Stevens Home Improvement Company has constructed numerous porches throughout New Jersey, and has decades of experience in planning and building quality porches in the tri state area.
A covered porch not only provides protection from sun or rain, but may also form, in effect, an extra exterior room that may be used as living space. Porches can accommodate chairs, tables, and other furniture, which greatly enhance the value of the porch as a place of relaxation and entertainment.
The key to any successful porch project is having a good plan. David Fabbo can assist you with a well thought out porch plan, so you'll be able to visualize what the end result will be. Our experienced contractors will use the finest materials and will build a quality, long-lasting porch that will stand the test of time and add solid value to your home.
David Fabbo will help to develop a plan that fits your needs and tastes. When building a porch, these questions will have to be answered:
Will the porch match and complement the house?
What is the best location for the porch?
How functional/convenient will the porch be?
Is the size of the porch too big/small for the yard and house?
Keep in mind future updates and features for your porch plan. For example, perhaps you might consider a plan with the flexibility to have screen windows that would easily upgrade to sliding glass doors. This requires large headers and temporary stud bracing which must be included in the plan.
A final plan consideration is where to locate the entry from the house to the porch. It may be possible to utilize an existing window or door opening to save some time, framing lumber and allow the entry to fit in with the scheme of the house.
