Front Porches by Archadeck, St. Louis

Front Porches by Archadeck, St. Louis

There’s absolutely no better way to enjoy outdoor living than with a screened porch or open porch … front porch or back porch.

A porch is a pleasantly inviting outdoor space that’s all about relaxing and socializing.

Porches, particularly front porches, are a great way to connect with neighbors and foster a sense of community.

Nonetheless, screened porches, open porches and back porches encourage both leisure activity and social interactions too.

But porches of all kinds are historically a popular home addition whether you live in an urban, rural or suburban area.

Today’s porches can be fully customized to complement any lifestyle and home setting.

The porch is not simply an extension of your home nor a ‘stand-alone’ structure for ‘kicking back’… it has evolved as an extension of other outdoor spaces such as a deck or patio, adding aesthetic appeal and monetary value to your home.

Simply put, porches are attractive, cost-effective, useful and fun!

Front porches are typically used as a ‘bistro’ for morning coffee and reading the paper as well as a fabulous spot for rocking chairs or a porch swing to socialize with neighbors in the evening hours. Screened porches, on the other hand, are often used as a dining area and as a ‘family room’, complete with electronics, lighting, and cozy furniture.

Contemporary porches can be built with a wide variance of materials including wood, hardwood, composite and vinyl.  Screens (or even windows) are easily added for extra protection from the elements.

Accessories such as ceiling fans, electrical outlets, lighting and comfortable weatherproof furniture increase versatility too.

Porches have always been a ‘neighborly’ but intimate structure… a private respite tied to home and yard.   Nowadays any porch — screened, open, front or back — is typically ‘the favorite place’ for family and friends to gather.

And porches designed and built by Archadeck will be truly customized to perfectly suit your lifestyle, your sense of design and your budget.
