Add Style & Functionality with Custom Porticos & Entranceways
A portico is a small porch roof built over a front entry door. Porticoes are both useful and decorative. They shelter people entering a house from sun and rain, but also provide an attractive and often elegant feature to an otherwise bland house front. They are common on Colonial houses, a common style in Northern Virginia and the Metro DC area.
Let Our Experts Design Your Portico – Genuine Craftsmanship, Real Curb Appeal
Colonial Remodeling’s team of experts design and custom-build porticos to enhance the curb appeal and utility of your home. For the ultimate new portico, Colonial Remodeling can craft a custom-design with a new cement slab (with or without a slate or tile veneer), or a pressure-treated landing covered with a framed structure finished with a selection from our quality, low-maintenance siding, trim, and roofing materials manufacturers. Or, we can simply update your existing front landing to a new, low-maintenance, covered structure designed for your home. Our innovative products and seasoned staff of professionals allow endless possibilities to design and create a custom portico or entrance ways.
Portico Installation Process
Colonial Remodeling has a detailed process for portico design and installation:
- Drawings – Colonial Remodeling will provide new portico design and existing elevation drawing for homeowner approval prior to construction.
