Take a Look Below at the Various Types of Porches We Build in Charlotte

Front Porches & Porticos

A front porch or portico is your home’s face. It’s what everyone sees as they drive by. It greets and welcomes guests even before you do. It also serves as that lasting first impression and prologue to the interior of your home. A front porch can protect you and your home’s front facade from the elements, add curb appeal or serve as a refuge for relaxation.

Open Porches & Covered Porches

Our custom covered porches are designed to protect you overhead without reducing your connection with the outdoors. From simple front porches to complete outdoor entertainment areas, our covered porches and covered patios will transform your home from the outside in.

It features all the accouterments needed for outdoor living enjoyment, notice the overstuffed outdoor furnishings, porch heater, ceiling fan, flat screen TV and even a stone fire pit! It’s like an open and airy hideaway right in your own backyard — placing you at one with all of Mother Nature’s majesty.

Screened Porches

We are the leading screened porch builder in the Charlotte area. Designing and building upscale outdoor living spaces and structures is all we do. Screened porches are quintessential as outdoor living spaces in North Carolina. A screened porch allows you to enjoy fresh air and a nice breeze without the sun glaring down on you and without insects buzzing in your ear. With the mild climate we enjoy here in Charlotte, screened porches continue to grow in popularity.

Charlotte EZE Breeze Porches

Our EZE Breeze porches allow flexibility unlike no other outdoor room. The EZE Breeze system can be applied to new or existing screened porches in order to create a multi-seasonal outdoor room.

These porches deliver protection from uncomfortable outdoor temperatures, insects, debris such as dirt, pollen and other allergans, as well as the elements. Similar to the advantages of sunrooms but with added flexibility and less costly to build, EZE Breeze porches give you the best of both worlds; a screened porch or a sunroom, anytime you want it! Read our blog titled EZE Breeze screen porches vs. Sun Rooms? to learn more about the advantages of an EZE Breeze screen porch vs. a sunroom.

How Does Eze Breeze Work?

Eze Breeze consists of a vertical sliding vinyl window panel backed with screens. When the weather is right, slide them down for a screened porch experience, and pull them right back up when it’s raining to enjoy a more protected space. The panels are custom-made for your specific project and available in a variety of colors to make sure they complement your home perfectly. The vinyl window is lightweight to make the sliding easy and still provides the same view as regular glass.

This versatile enclosure system features vents that slide either vertically or horizontally to fit your needs. Fixed vents are also available to accommodate spaces above your vertical- or horizontal-sliding vents, allowing for incredible floor-to-ceiling views.

Sunrooms

Sunrooms continue to increase in popularity among Charlotte homeowners. Even though sunrooms are not considered a porch addition, they retain many of the same benefits present in our screened porch and Eze Breeze porch structures. These include protection from the elements, allergens, nuisance insects and extended shade properties. A sunroom takes these positive benefits a step further through a conditioned space that functions like an interior room, complete with heating and cooling.

Our customers love sunrooms as they can use them all year round while still being surrounded (on three sides) by the outdoors. In addition, sunrooms offer an expanded choice of finish materials and design options since these spaces are not exposed to outside forces. Want to use hardwoods on your sunroom floor? Or maybe paint the walls in your favorite hue? Go ahead and get creative — All of these are possible with a sunroom!

Sunrooms, like any outdoor living structure we design and build, are not treated as a one size or design fits all addition. This is because there are so many aspects of a sunroom that need to be considered to create the perfect space: the size, shape, light, etc.

It is surprising to some homeowners at how much a sunroom can impact their existing home when not properly designed. Loss of light to the interior of the home is one of the main concerns. For example, if the back of your home faces a Northern orientation it may not receive a lot of natural light that flows into the interior of the home. If you build a sunroom off the back, it may impact the amount that amount of light, or lack of, entering the home. When impeding the flow of natural sunlight is a concern Archadeck of Charlotte may suggest the addition of skylights or other design priorities reducing the loss of light that may occur.

Endless Customization Options for Your Porch Design

When it comes to options and materials to use for your Charlotte porch, the choices are vast. Your porch can be constructed with simplicity in mind as well as sophistication. From choosing the roof style that best suits the originality of your home and personal tastes, to the flooring and interior finishes, our designers can help with your selections. Here is a peek at some of the most asked about options by homeowners planning porch additions:

Exposed Rafter Interior Porch Ceiling

Exposed rafters are very popular among Charlotte-area homeowners. Exposing the rafters creates a rustic, earthy elegance to the structure. Exposed rafters can also be wrapped to provide added aesthetics and continuity of the design.

Enclosed Rafters

Enclosed rafters used to create formality to a structure. The decision to leave the rafter exposed or to enclose is a personal preference. On the Mt. Holly screened porch pictured below we used a beautiful tongue-and-groove ceiling to finish the vaulted enclosed rafter ceiling.

Flat Ceilings

Flat ceilings are often used in our screened porch and Eze Breeze porch designs. Flat ceilings are often used to give the space a more traditional interior room feel, and can also be used to create a sense of unity or formality. Flat ceilings can be played-up by the use of hardwood finishes to achieve a rustic elegance. Just look at the coffered ceiling detail we used on the flat ceiling of this Waxhaw, NC, covered porch addition:

Flooring

There are many options you can choose for your porch floor. These include traditional pressure treated pine, composite decking and even the newest tile that mimics the look of wood. You can learn more about the pros and cons, and price points, of various porch flooring options in the post What are my porch flooring options?, found on our blog.

Architectural Elements

Many architectural elements can be used to add style and character to your porch. Elements such as the ridge beam, which is the beam which runs the length of the ceiling, can become a focal point by using a large wooden beam. Ridge beams can also serve as an aesthetic element are also usually where the ceiling fan is often mounted. Roof beams are sometimes trimmed out or wrapped to add style to a porch space.

These designs include two or more outdoor living structures that work together to promote a complete outdoor living environment. For example, maybe you seek a place to relish the afternoon sun but still want the protection of a covered space within reach. A deck or patio with a covered porch or screened porch would fit the bill. Maybe you want a place to relax, entertain and show off your backyard gourmet skills. A covered or screened porch or patio with an integrated outdoor kitchen is just the combination to cure that craving!
