Use Our Directory Of Porch ComponentsPorches have a lot going on: porch anatomy are the porch components that you can see and even those that you don't.
We are referring to everything from the porch decking to porch ceilings - and more! Each component is either essential to the structure of your porch or as a decorative feature that expresses your style and creates curb appeal.
Selecting the right components can make for both a beautiful and functional front porch. Woodwork that reflects your architectural style also ensures authenticity.
Porch railings, balusters, porch columns, trims, porch steps, and porch lights. Wow! Let's sort through it all.
You don't have to know the specifics of porch construction unless you are either building a porch or hiring a contractor to do it. But it's a great idea to be knowledgeable so you can spot potential problems and ensure additions fit both the architectural style and structural integrity of your porch.
Building, Remodeling, or Repairing Your Porch?Whether you are building, remodeling or repairing your front porch or deck, it's important to understand your porch's anatomy. We've made it easy by addressing your porch's components so you can make decisions regarding your own porch.
