Your Front Porch PortalA porch is a place where warm memories are made....where a sense of family and neighbors is created...a place to relax and watch hurried walkers and children playing in the front yard.
Porches have space for a person to pause before entering or exiting the building. Size varies; however, from small porticos to large wrap-arounds.
Verandas, for example, are often quite expansive and may extend across the entire front as well as the sides of a home or building.
Like many other things, a covered entrance is more than just what meets the eye. It reflects the personality of your home and is the transition space from the outdoors to the inside.
Therefore, each component of your entrance, from the foundation to the roof, is important.
