The sun is blazing, condensation is dripping down from the glass you are holding, when - snap - the floor of your well-used porch breaks. You look around at the peeling paint on the floorboards, molding posts, boring roof, and decide it is long past time for an update. Luckily, your found the perfect spot to start and end the process. The big question is: What kind of porch best suits your house?
A wrap-around porch is perfect for those prefer sun tanning from their porch - there is always a spot for shade or sun! Not only that, but it allows the house to appear more expansive. Wrap-around porches also allow for the interior of the house to stay shaded and therefore cooler, as it provides a bigger "hat" for the house.
Front porches make the entrance if your house appear more friendly and welcoming. This subtle 6-8 foot pad can allow guests to be shielded from the sun, wind, or rain while waiting for the door to be answered. If you are one for people watching this porch was made for you - relaxing here can give you a perfect view of all the passerby!
Back porches often have a larger width than either a front porch or a wrap-around porch, allowing a space to relax while watching your kids. They provide more privacy than a front porch and are less expensive than a wrap-around. Back porches - and actually all porches - also add sale value to the house!
Last week we installed drywall patches on a residential project in Monroe. We taped an textured it to blend into the existing texture. We also primed and painted two coats to match the existing color and sheen.
