Front Porches, Designed and Built by Archadeck

Front Porch Addition with Railing and Columns by Archadeck

Archadeck is known for our outstanding backyard spaces including decks, screened rooms, pergolas, pavilions, gazebos and more.

However, did you know that Archadeck also designs and builds beautiful, custom front porches and porticos?

Front porches create a grand entrance for your family and guests, adding dramatic curb appeal and a neighborly ‘feel’ to your home.

In addition, an expansive front porch provides more livable outdoor space to enjoy your front yard.  And porticos cover the front door to protect and accentuate your home’s entry area.

Front porches and porticos are classic.  And there’s a reason ‘classic’ things are considered ‘classic’…

Classic designs never go out of style!

Experienced contractors can design a front porch space to extend the width of your house or design a smaller structure for a front porch stoop.

And depending on your home’s architecture, the space might include covered and shady areas, with or without open areas.

Other design considerations include:

-Many front porches have stone or concrete flooring, however composite or wood decking can be effectively used for a porch too.

-Some front porches are designed with decorative railing and columns, others are simpler but equally stunning.

-A front porch addition should reflect the existing home’s architecture:  traditional, rustic, classic or modern.

-Front porch design must also consider the inside of your home to ensure that natural sunlight is not overly blocked from the front windows.
