Pros

  • Increased Access 

A wrap-around porch allows additional access points to be built to your home, increasing the flow between indoors and out. 

  • Increased Outdoor Living Space

A wrap-around porch can feel like a living room outside. You can make this outdoor living space your home’s comfort oasis. 

  • Weather Protection

Overhead protection from the elements while enjoying the outdoors. Enclosing a wrap-around porch protects you from rain, wind, cold, and bugs. 

  • Improved Views

The fantastic views are among the most significant benefits of adding a wrap-around porch. Visitors can see a scenic view of your outdoor space while enjoying a cozy beverage on your wrap-around porch. 

  • Outdoor Gatherings

Probably the best part of building a wrap-around patio is the ability to host family and friends in a cozy, scenic place at your home. Guests can seamlessly mingle as they flow from one portion of your home to the next. 

Cons

  • Require Time and Attention 

If you are someone who does not like to decorate, you will not like the upkeep of a wrap-around porch. You will want to make the new porch the focal point of your home with added decor and furniture. Decorating will come at a cost if you hire a professional to help you. Otherwise, most homeowners can do it themselves. 

  • Require Additional Outdoor Space

A new wrap-around porch does require more space than a simple deck. You need an area that goes around portions of your home that follows your local code ordinances. Our building team can help in this area. 

  • Added Expense to Build

A new wrap-around porch does come at a cost for materials, permits, and labor. However, most banks do offer excellent home equity loan rates, and the addition will add value to your home’s bottom line.
