A porch is usually a roofed structure that extends from the front and sides of a house's ground floor. A porch is a great home feature for protecting your front entrance from exposure to the elements, as an open-air sitting area, and also as an outdoor dining space in nice weather. There are several different porch designs to consider, and its size and composition should be determined by the size of your family, and also by its desired purpose. Helpful Tip: Make sure your porch design is in scale with the rest of your house. You don't want to overwhelm your home's architecture, nor do you want to detract from the beauty of your porch by making it too small.
Concrete Porch vs Wood Porch
Porches are often constructed from concrete or wood, or a combination of the two. Concrete porches tend to be more durable and weather resistant, and they won't need the regular maintenance and staining of wood. Concrete can crack over time, however, so repairs may have to be made over the years. Wood is generally a more visually appealing material for porches, and individuals whose porches include or descend into garden plots especially appreciate its organic look. Many modern porches will use concrete as a base, with wood or other building materials then added to the exterior.
