Planning for Your Porch Remodel

A porch remodel project takes careful planning to ensure it is a success — and all your expectations are met. To plan for your porch project, you’ll need to think through the following:

Determining Your Budget

Your budget will help you determine the extent of your project: whether you’ll go for a full-scale structural overhaul or opt for surface-level changes such as resurfacing with new porch boards.

Your Home’s Exterior Style

Your remodel should complement your home’s existing exterior style for a cohesive aesthetic.

Your Porch’s Functionality

How you plan to use your porch will affect its design by determining how large or small of a space you’ll need. Ask yourself: will your porch be a gathering place or more of a transition point where you welcome guests into your home?

The Materials You Use

The porch materials you choose for your remodel will affect your upfront costs, the long-term value of your home, and how much maintenance you can expect to do.
