As our homes age, sometimes our curb appeal needs a refresher.

A front porch is a great place to start.  It can be a solution to weather and water issues at your front door, can give you a more welcome place to greet your visitors, and can dress up the facade from the street.  We take the time to learn what your style is and find a look that is appropriate for your home’s architecture and neighborhood.

Sunnyside Road Porch

Our house had an existing false balcony above our entryway.  After hurricane Sandy ripped the fascia metal off of this part of our roof, we decided to replace the existing, dirt-catching ballusters and railings that were only decorative with a more functional, more attractive porch roof. We reused the existing columns and basic wood framing structure to control project cost, but integrated cellular PVC trim and bead board ceiling (a low-maintenance, long-lasting trim material) to finish the existing structure to protect the remaining wood.  A new sloped metal roof topped off the project and replaced the old existing flat, leaking membrane roofing.

Macungie Porch

The owners wanted a covered entrance to help keep the weather outside, instead of in their foyer. We worked to create a custom porch that matched their existing house and tied into the recently renovated garage roofing. The existing, aging shutters were replaced with new ones to dress up the entire front of the home.  The Owners worked with a local landscaper, using the SCFA base design, to complete their custom bluestone porch and walkway.

Myrtle Drive Porch

The existing house had a flat front façade that started leaking and the lintel above the door started to rot. The Owners were interested in creating a covered porch that blended in with the house and the neighborhood. The new front door, porch, and paver sidewalk were designed to create a welcome entrance that integrated with their landscaping.
