Why Every Home Should Have A Porch
We don’t like to say that every home should have a porch, we prefer to say that every home needs a porch. There are many benefits to having a porch and, no matter the reason for yours, you can rest assured that the addition of a porch is only going to increase the value of your home.
We have seen porches built that make a home beautiful, transform a house, and beautify a yard. Not only that, but a porch creates an unobtrusive area for you, your family, and your guests to relax and converse.
From a welcoming front porch to a full wraparound enclosed porch, this amazing addition adds to your life, providing functionality and security. The question is not whether or not you should have one built, it is when you should have it built.

Types Of Porches
A front porch adds a welcoming environment to your home. With the addition of a stylish porch, you have something that will draw the eye when a guest arrives. They also offer a place for muddy boots, storage for other items, and a place to put some chairs or a porch swing.
The additional benefit is security. If you add a screen door to your front porch, it is a deterrent to thieves. Even a simple outer door has been shown to offer protection from burglaries.
On top of the functionality and security, a front porch also offers beauty. With so many options available, you can convert a drab and simple front into something decorative and special. Add in supports, pillars, rails, and any other finishing touches.
You will also find that a front porch is a great way to meet your neighbors. Sitting out on your front porch in the evening is a great way to meet anyone who walks by. The presence of people on a porch is also going to add more security to the entire neighborhood.
Is there anything that front porches cannot do?
If you live in an area where there are lots of bugs or wildlife, then a screened porch is a welcome addition that will allow you to enjoy the great outdoors without the threat of bites or stings.
If there are lots of insects in your area, a screened porch will stop them from getting to you when you are relaxing or entertaining guests. The same goes for bees and wasps. Other wildlife too. Birds are not going to enter your porch or make nests there, covering your porch floor with poop. And, say goodbye to other animals, such as raccoons and skunks, making a home around your house.
A screened porch also offers security. It has been shown that thieves are less likely to try and illegally enter a property if there are screens and a screen door.

If you want a little more privacy, then a porch is a great addition to the back of your home in place of a deck. While a deck is more free-standing, a porch is more of an addition to your home that is built-in.
Porches offer a decorative option, and you can create one along the entire length of the back of your home, enclosing it if you want to. Much like a back deck, a back porch offers you a great place to relax or entertain. With ample space for furniture, barbecues, and more, a back porch is an extension of your home.
A porch on the back of your home will also offer you exemplary privacy. Don’t want to sit out front and greet the neighbors? A back porch will give you all the privacy that you crave.
Wraparound porches are the ultimate in porch design. Wrap a porch around two sides of your home, or wrap it around them all.
A porch around multiple sides of your home can completely transform it, adding a look that you usually only find on ranches or country houses. You really can add some grandeur with a wraparound porch, and transfer yourself back in time to an era of grace and elegance.
By wrapping a porch, you also give yourself lots of space. A porch is an addition to your home and you can add hundreds of square feet of extra space with a simple porch. A great place to entertain, you can add furniture to the side of your building, and move the space away from your entrance, creating a private place for your most treasured guests.
