In the Summer of 2016 we converted an average front stoop to a beautiful front porch that was the talk of the neighborhood. We replaced all of the siding on the front side of the house and attached a twenty-five-foot x five-foot front porch addition that overlooked the clients’ coy pond. We also replaced the roof, painted the exterior of the home, replaced the gutters & shutters and poured a new concrete sidewalk.
Unique Characteristics of Project
In any home addition, its vital to find products that match the existing style and material of the structure. We knew that matching the orange brick on this job would be an issue because of the age of the home and how industry standards have changed over the years. We tried to find a close match but continuously came up unsuccessful. Once we started the demolition of the front stoop we found a pleasant surprise. Approximately 200 dry stacked bricks were installed within the existing stoop. While we still had to use some new brick, we could salvage and reuse the old brick for the visible faces of the piers, creating a cohesive look that matched the home’s existing foundation.
