When I was about 3, my grandfather used to give me and my sister a nickel to sit out on the front porch with him and sing songs. – Tommy Shaw
In the kitchen, we make meals and clean the dishes. In the home office, we do the work that must be done. In the bathroom, we take care of business of another sort. But porches – porches are where we go to make memories.
There’s something magical about a porch. Many Medway homes have beautiful porches. These porches are great places to spend time with the people you enjoy the most, whether that’s sharing a cup of coffee on a quiet morning, having a fun filled bbq party or simply chilling under the stars.
Is adding a porch a do it yourself job?
Take a quick walk through any home improvement store, and you’ll find racks of books and instruction sheets promising you that with a few hundred dollar’s worth of tools and some lumber, anyone can add a porch to their home. We’ve seen a lot of these porches over the years, and while they can be great, the truth is they often look like exactly what they are: someone’s first effort at a complicated construction project. Is that really what you want tacked onto your home?
Consider having a Medway building contractor build your new porch. You’ll eliminate the amateurish look that comes from even the most diligent do-it-yourselfer’s efforts. Your home is your biggest investment. Protect it by choosing a Medway contractor with experience building porches and patios, who knows how to enhance your home’s beauty and value.
What makes a good porch great? Factors to consider include seating areas – will you have adequate space to enjoy your porch and gather with friends? Many families enjoy outdoor dining and cooking: consider having your Medway contractor build in an outdoor sink, hookups for your bbq, and other kitchen amenities.
