Porch Designs For Every Home
If your home has never had a porch before you may be having trouble trying to visualize where it will go and what it will look like. Don’t worry, we are here to help! Every project starts off with a free, on-site consultation. We’ll come out and take a look at the property, discuss your ideas, provide our own experienced opinion and show you examples of porches we have installed in the past. Together, we’ll come up with a porch design that meets your needs and enhances your home’s exterior.
Our porch contractors have installed all types of porches. Each porch is custom-designed to meet the homeowner’s needs, while taking into account site considerations and the home’s design.
Porch design options
Open Porches. Similar to a patio, open porches create a welcoming oasis for homeowners and their guests. They are a great option if you have a detached garage and want to create a space that connects the home and garage or if you have room in the backyard, but no need for a deck. Built-in seating adds to functionality and railings helps define porch boundaries.
Covered Porches. Covered porches do not have walls, but they do have roofs, which typically abut and mimic the home’s existing roof. There are no walls, but railings can be added, much like a deck, and the porches do provide protection from the sun and rain. Slatted “ceilings” are a popular alternative, providing some shade but not full sun protection. Vining plants can be trained up the supports to create a “green” ceiling.
Screened-in Porches. Screened-in porches can increase your use of the porch by making it possible to sit out there in warm, but inconvenient weather. Think spring storm, an evening full of summer mosquitos, or a blustery fall day. Screened-in porch installation will provide you with a covered area and some side protection without the cost of adding a three-or four-season room to the home.
Patio Covers and Cabanas. Maybe you have a porch but it looks a little dated or doesn’t provide enough protection from the sun. A porch cover or cabana can be just the solution you need, providing a cost-effective way to keep your existing porch but make it more attractive and functional. Create your own private paradise right here in Chicagoland! Options include brick walls, awnings, solid or slatted wood “ceilings” and more.
Three- or Four-Season Rooms. Three- and four-season rooms are the ultimate in outdoor living space. Both can be added to just about any home. Both feature an enclosed area with three walls of windows. Four-season rooms are better insulated and have windows that provide less thermal transference; they might also have a heating system, allowing you to use the room even in winter. Three-season rooms are closer in design to screened-in porches, with the added benefit of glass and screen windows, allowing you to use them even when you wouldn’t want to be sitting out on a screened-in porch.
Roofing Options. There are many porch roofing options. Gable roofs, flat roofs, sloped roofs, and open framework “green” roofs are all possible. The best porch roof is one that will match the style of your home and divert water away from the home. Our porch contactors will explore all possible options with you to ensure your new porch roof enhances your home’s exterior.
