Enhancing Curb Appeal With A Custom Designed Portico


Customer Issues

This is a multi-part project

In the first phase

  • The customer needed to address issues related to a poorly installed front step and brick parapets.

For the second phase

  • In a development where about a third of the homes are the same model differentiated only by the color of the brick, the roof, the shutters and siding the homeowner wanted to have a curb appeal feature that distinguished their home from the others.

For the first phase

  • The builder installed, rectangular step with brick parapets was removed and a foundation for the step properly established.
  • A distinctive semi-circular, all brick step was designed and installed.

For the second phase

  • A new 6 panel, Pella fiberglass entry door with full decorative glass sidelights was installed.
  • Using the previously installed semi-circular step as inspiration, a like-shaped portico was custom designed in keeping with the Georgian architecture of the home.
  • Constructed of maintenance-free materials the portico is topped by a hand-crafted, standing seam copper roof.
