Summer is a great time to make some much-needed upgrades and improvements to your home’s porch. If your porch is looking worse for the wear, investing in a home improvement project can make a huge difference.
Check out Stratton Exterior’s list of porch projects that can refresh, transform and dramatically improve your home’s porch area.
We’ve talked about the beauty, sophistication and durability of flagstone pavers for your patio before. But did you know they can also completely transform your front porch?
Flagstone is available is a number of colors, textures, and shapes, so you have the power to create exactly the look you want. In addition to looking great, flagstone doesn’t absorb water quickly, making it an ideal material for an outdoor space like a patio, walkway or porch.
The texture of flagstone makes it perfect for walking without slippage. This durable material can dramatically improve your porch’s look, function and lifespan.
If your porch is looking a little drab, there’s nothing like the sophistication of brick accents to spruce things up. For the porch construction above, we added brick accents around the house, including elegant brick front steps. We then finished the porch off with brand new cedar railings, columns and boards for the porch floor.
Cedar is a great material for outdoor construction. The wood contains natural oils that make it resistant to bugs, rot, and moisture damage. Cedar also weathers beautifully. Adding cedar elements to your home’s front porch ensures a sophisticated wood look for years to come. Plus, when it comes to wear and tear, cedar is one of the sturdier woods–it isn’t prone to sagging or warping as time goes by.
Unique Design Touches for Historic Porches
Stratton Exteriors loves working on historic preservation projects. We recently renovated a back porch in historic Edgefield, adding corbels, a gorgeous wood panel ceiling (stained for an extra dose of sophistication) and a paint color that perfectly complemented the rest of the historic home.
Your porch renovation doesn’t have to be extensive or expensive to make your home look more aesthetically pleasing. Whether it’s a coat of paint, new railings or the brick flourishes you’ve always wanted, Stratton Exteriors can help you design and implement the porch renovations you want.
