Custom-built Porticos can transform your home’s front entrance.
Renovating your porch to create a lasting charm is definitely a worthwhile investment for every homeowner. Whether you are tired of your bland front porch or want to integrate additional charm to your back porch, transforming a plain looking porch into a magnificent portico will not only endow your home with vigor and elegance, but also impart an air of formality and royalty to your entryway. While it is easy to confuse a portico with a porch, the two are very different in functions and purposes. Distinguishing the difference and recognizing the intrinsic value of a portico will enable you to make an informed porch remodeling decision.
It’s a Portico, Not a Porch
Portico is actually the Italian word for porch. Oftentimes confused with a porch, the structure of a portico has a unique classic air unfounded in the plain porches of most modern homes. Whereas a porch is basically an extension of the floor with optional railings, a portico is an ornate covered walkway with beautiful columns. Inspired by the lavish ancient Greek temples, porticos add formality and historic dashes to your home by emulating admirable architectural designs of the past.
However, choosing the right roof for your portico is as important as differentiating between a portico and a porch. The roof of a portico can be expensive to repair and maintain. Because a portico roof is an additional layer of protection to the front of your home (you can have porticos in the back too), it can interfere with how your home responses to incoming solar radiation and heat, which makes temperature management a challenge especially on a very warm summer day. Once again, Global Home Improvement has the perfect solution for you.
