Determining Your Needs


Previous | Table of Contents | Next


The thoughtful design and skillful construction of even a modest porch almost became a lost art... but over the last 35 years we've helped change that.


New Porch?
If you're building a new porch, follow these three steps to achieve the porch of your dreams:

1. Determine which porch will work for your house and best complement it with our photo guide. Height of house front eave is a key factor in making this determination. Likewise, available wall height between first and second floor windows on 2-story houses influences what type porch you should build.

2. Consider how you will use your porch and what size porch you need.

3. Decide what style decorative trim will best suit you and your home.


Existing Porch?
If your porch already exists, use the above links to determine if you want to remodel your porch and/or what decorative trim you want to add.

Yes, you really should! We offer a range of synthetic wood products that look, feel and sound like painted wood... but that's where the similarities end.   Read more...
