A porch remodel is a great way to up your home’s curb appeal and make a statement in the neighborhood. Your porch is one of the most important elements of your house’s design because it:

  • Serves as the face of your property and gives guests a warm welcome.
  • Ups your home’s curb appeal and therefore, resale value.
  • Offers another medium for you to express your unique style.

Before You Start Your Porch Remodel

Porch remodel depends on porch materials

Before beginning, you’ll want to have a solid plan for the redesign. Several factors will influence the project, so it’s important to consider:

  • The materials you use: Porch materials like TimberTech® Porch boards give you the nature-inspired beauty of traditional wood, while also saving you from costly upkeep associated with traditional wood.
  • How your porch will function: Your design should account for your functional goals — for example, do you love entertaining? Or do you prefer a quiet reading nook away from the action?
  • Your home’s exterior style: Your home should be a unique reflection of you, and your porch should complement your style.

Why Materials Matter for Your Porch Remodel

If you’ve chosen to invest in the beauty, durability, and ultimately long-term value of your home with an eye-catching front porch, it makes sense to choose only premium porch materials.

TimberTech Porch boards:
  • Feature advanced polymer material from core to cap, making them highly resistant to moisture.
  • Provide superior resistance to fading, staining, and weathering for a porch that looks good for years to come.
  • Offer an aesthetic reminiscent of hardwood flooring with tongue-and-groove installation that allows for smaller gaps between boards.

Porch Remodel Design Ideas

The primary function of your porch will be the largest influencer of the redesign. Depending on its size and your style preferences, your porch can be anything from a warm entryway to a dynamic entertainment center.
