The Perfect Front Porch
Spring walks are a great opportunity to take advantage of nice weather. They’re also the time you start to notice which homes in your neighborhood have the most appealing exteriors.
Sometimes, that lovely look is simply a beautifully built and designed front porch. Is your home ready for this endearing feature? A RenoMark Renovator knows what sort of look and style and structure your house can accommodate. They also have knowledge of the building permit process.
A beautiful front porch can be a serene, inviting place to read, think, dream, plan; a place made for gathering with friends and family on a soft summer evening.
A porch should be perfect in every way, not just so it will last, but so it’s an object of beauty in itself. Built with care, skill, and attention to the smallest detail, a superb front porch is always timeless no matter what the era.
The ideal, if space and structure allow, is a covered porch, and one wide enough to allow some good furniture. It should be deep enough to let you watch the rain without getting wet. You might want a porch that is screened in, or one that is glassed in for the winter, but that can be opened up again with the first breezes of spring. In the right place, a porch can be the perfect place for delicate plants ‒ a front porch nursery, if you like.
You’ll need to consider the impact a porch will make on the inside of your house so daylight isn’t compromised. It’s also possible that the zoning performance standards may impact the size and location of your porch, but this is where your renovator will guide you, and why a front porch is often part of a larger exterior renovation ‒ one that also calls for updated windows and doors.
This could very well be the prettiest and most peaceful part of your home. Happy sitting!
