A wise and savvy architectural social media influencer once said that you can tell a lot about a person who lives inside the house by the way it looks on the outside. And this is especially true with front home exteriors as they are usually the focal point for curb appeal.
In addition to adding aesthetic appeal to the front of your home, adding a well-designed front porch customized to accent the architecture of your home will most likely increase your home’s value when the time comes for you to list it for sale. A reputable source states that you can expect an average return on investment (ROI) of 84%. And that’s truly significant, especially when doing a front porch update.
IMPROVING YOUR NORTH SHELBY COUNTY FRONT PORCH
Not only do porches add value and enhance homes, but they are extremely practical and often a necessity. For those houses that don't have a porch, homeowners or guests enter the home through the front door and step right into the living room or hallway.
With a front porch entryway makeover, there is a more defined separation between interior rooms and the outside of the home. Luckily for those of us in the North Shelby County area, Archadeck is here to advise us with the best possible design schemes for front porch versatility, practicality and usability.
Archadeck knows well the importance of a solidly constructed porch, and it seems that every North Shelby-area home needs at least one porch.
Front porches add beauty, enjoyment, curb appeal and value to your home. As your North Shelby County porch builder, Archadeck of Birmingham is right there with you. We consider it our professional duty to custom design and meticulously construct porches for all who desire them.
AFTER 3O YEARS, THIS HOME NEEDED A FRONT PORCH FACELIFT AND RECONSTRUCTION
Being aware that the front of their home needed a better front porch solution, this family contacted Archadeck for a no-obligation design consultation.
They told us that they wanted to improve the entrance’s overall appearance, and one that would require virtually no maintenance for the long term.
So our craftspeople carefully removed the original brick steps and front porch stoop, bringing trusted and Earth-friendly TimberTech composite decking materials as the fabrication solution.
When it comes to virtually carefree and maintenance-free outdoor living and entrance porticos, TimberTech is often the best choice.
Used for the stairs and porch foundation, TimberTech capped polymer deck boards have significant advantages over wood and brick. With TimberTech’s unparalleled design and durable performance, it offers superior resistance to outdoor moisture. That means mold, mildew, and other wet erosion obstacles that diminish your front porch don’t stand a chance. TimberTech is so confident in its products that they feature a 50-year limited fade and stain warranty, meaning that your front porch renovation will look as good as the day we installed it for many years to come.
For fans of walking outdoors in bare feet, here’s another TimberTech plus: it stays cooler to the touch.
ALUMINUM RAILINGS AND SUPPORTS PROVIDE THE PERFECT FINISHING TOUCH
To clearly delineate the front porch entrance area, our design team chose support columns and railings from AFCO.
Their Aluminum AFCO-Rail products blend well with our TimberTech solutions as they, too, are virtually maintenance-free and come with a limited lifetime warranty.
