Prairie Village KS Open Porch Ceiling Design
This open porch design in Prairie Village is a fair representation of the
porch ceilings we often build at Archadeck of Kansas City. Here, you will
find a beautiful tongue and groove finish that extends to the home’s
exterior wall, installed radiant heaters, a lighted ceiling fan, surround
sound, and skylights to bring natural light inside the porch, as well
as the home.

Transforming your existing open deck into a covered porch would be ideal
if your deck was built to support such an addition. Unfortunately, almost
all decks are not designed nor built to support the weight of a
porch roof. Outside of not being able to support the weight of a roof, other obstacles
include whether your deck is already the correct size and shape that you
would like for your porch to be and whether it is attached to your home,
where it is most convenient and usable. Perhaps your deck is outside your
breakfast nook, but you would rather have your covered porch as an extension
of your family room. When investing in an outdoor living space, it’s
important to consider where you will get optimum use. If your open porch
is not in an area, you deem easily accessible, or sensibly placed, you
are less likely to spend time there.

What are some other benefits for an
open porch or covered deck in the Kansas City area?
When it comes to enjoying time outdoors, a covered deck is a great option
for many reasons. You might find that an open porch enhances the overall
experience of being outdoors, in that it is a true open-air living space,
as opposed to being enclosed with screens. The second benefit is that
even though the porch is open, you will still have some sun and rain protection
on your covered porch. If your family already gets ample use of your backyard,
having an open porch is an obvious solution, as there are little or no
boundaries between your porch and yard. This might be especially useful
for families with pets. Open porches can add value to the way we use our
existing outdoor amenities, such as play yards or grilling areas. As your
Kansas City open porch builder, Archadeck of Kansas City can help you
plan and build a porch to best suit your lifestyle.

All open porches and covered decks are not created equal. We can offer

One of those options is maintenance level. Many Kansas City homeowners
choose low-maintenance materials for their new covered or open porch.
We can use low-maintenance building materials, such as
AZEK composite decking and aluminum railings, to ensure your time outside is spent enjoying your
space instead of performing maintenance.
