The Basics of Porticos
First you need to know what a portico is. According to Angie’s List, a portico is a covered entrance to a home or building that’s supported by decorative columns. The columns are regularly spaced and they have different styles. Some are ordinary, while others have fancy decorations and brackets.
Porticos enhance your home’s curb appeal, but they do have a functional purpose as well. They protect your entranceway from rain and snow, and also serve as another barrier between the interior of your home and the elements. Porticos are not porches. They have less space and there’s no outdoor living area.
Creating Your Dream Portico
Once you’ve made the decision to install a portico, your next step is to figure out the design you want. Good Guys Contracting is able to design and custom build a portico, porch or entrance way to your home.
Better Homes and Gardens offers several suggestions for creating your dream portico. It’s a good idea to know your home’s architectural style, so you can understand what type of portico you want. One thing to consider is looking for images online or in publications of homes that have porticos that resemble your home.
Then you need to choose the components of your new portico. For example, you’ll want to decide whether you want to use columns or posts and what materials should be used. Again, your home’s architectural style is going to matter a lot.
You’ll need to decide how wide the columns and posts will be. You’ll also want to consider what your door will look like and how you’ll want to frame it. What will the roof of the portico look like and what will the decorative elements be for the entire project?
