What are the steps to having a new wooden porch?
Porches, like patios and decks, offer extra space to your home, and they are a great way to enjoy the outdoors even if you leave in a few stores high apartment building with no backyard. We design, fabricate and install steel and wooden porches, as well as porch stairs, porch railings, porch awnings and more. The first step of any project is the inspection of the future job site to check if your building can support a new porch, especially a rooftop one. Once we establish that, we work on the plans and design, we apply for all the necessary permits and then the work on the new porch can start.
What are my options if I already have a porch?
It depends on the state of your actual porch. If it is ina very good state and it was taken care of, it might only need minor touchups and a maintenance plan to keep it functional. If it is an old one, it might need some repairs and restoration. Besides the design and installation of new porches, we can take care of your old ones and make them look like new. If you have problems with just a portion of your porch, we can replace just that portion of your porch so you can use it again.
