Porch Ideas Network Podcast Logo logo for vintage woodworks Exterior house trim can add appeal to almost any front porch and home. Mary and I had the pleasure of interviewing Gregory Tatsch of Vintage Woodworks.com, an expert and lover of all things porches. From column brackets to running trim, and more, Gregory describes not only each component but also offers tips for adding and installing them on your porch.

You don't have to have a Victorian-style home to enjoy the appeal of the right decorative porch parts. Even contemporary porches can benefit from a little "gingerbread" on their porch columns, eaves, or beam. We know you'll enjoy Gregory's love of porches and his vast knowledge of exterior house trim.

Excerpts With Gregory Tatsch



Porch Longevity "a lot of people put up their complete balustrade (railings) before they do any priming or painting. That's not the proper way to approach it..."



Sizing Trim "Even though the size of brackets are a matter of personal taste, it is important to keep in mind a bracket that might seem very adequately sized when holding it in your hand, when viewed from the street it might almost disappear..."



Brackets: "Brackets are the number one thing a person can do to their porch as far as any decorative trim; " that's a lot of bang for your buck..."



Cornice Brackets "These are installed at right angles to the horizontal length of the porch on the face of the visible part of the beam approximately 12 to 24 inches apart. You want them pretty close together because it is a pleasing repeating pattern..."
