A New Porch Shouldn’t Look Like A Late Addition

kansas-city-porch-contractorWe’ve all seen it before, the new porch that looks, frankly, like an inexpensive addition or afterthought. Perhaps the porch materials are different than those used on the house itself. Perhaps there is no siding or exterior finish. Perhaps the paint color doesn’t match or care was not taken to compliment the other architectural details of the home. Perhaps the trim details are completely different than the home

It feels mismatched with good reason – the builders of such porches are more interested in a one-size-fits-all approach than a customized home solution. At Archadeck of Kansas City, our porches are designed to match your home from the roofline to the scale, siding, gutter lines, and other key details.

kansas-city-porch-builderBy working with a builder who’s concerned with matching your new porch’s look with your home, you’ll have a new space that looks like it was there all along. Taking this approach usually requires more labor, trim, and materials – and hence, somewhat higher costs – but you get a room that’s a natural extension of your home.

Creating a custom porch for your home is not just about style, but also substance. The materials should not only be cosmetically matched to your home, but they should also be strong enough to stand up to weather and to the test of time. Posts, trim, and fascia should protect your porch from the elements. These considerations can maximize the life span of your porch.

Archadeck of Kansas City doesn’t strive to be the cheapest option in porch building. Instead, we strive to create structures with both the style and the substance worthy of your home.
