Benefits of a Front Porch
For your family, the new addition will become a place to enjoy the beautiful Georgia weather without being in direct sunlight. You won’t have to worry as much about sunburns or getting too hot since most of the sunlight will be blocked. A front porch addition will increase the overall living space of your home. A new front porch will also add some extra protection from the elements by protecting doors or windows from rain and other elements that could cause damage, mold, or rot. A new porch is a great way to get a combination of shade for comfort and extra protection for your woodwork, hardware, and threshold. A new porch will also add more depth to your house, turning a flat front into an elegant space. This can be a great selling point if you are looking to sell your house in the future. According to NAHB, 80% of home buyers prefer to have a front porch. A new front porch addition will help you stand out from the competition when it’s time to sell.
Front Porch Design Styles
There are several options to choose from when it comes to a new front porch. Porch materials, size, and location are considerations that you will need to make. One of the first things you will want to consider is the material you want for your porch. Front porches can be built using brick, wood, stone, or a combination of these materials. Generally, you will want to use a material that complements your current home material. When looking at a new porch, it’s also important to look into the different kinds of upkeep that are involved with different materials. Don’t forget to consider how much porch space you will need. Will you want a full porch that spans the front of your house or will you want a half porch that spans a portion of your house? With the right design, your new porch will be sure to impress the neighbors and become gathering a place for friends and family.
