When it comes to home improvement projects nothing adds quite the same level of family enjoyment and overall value as adding a porch. If you aren’t convinced keep reading to learn more about some reasons for adding a porch to your home that you might not have thought of yet.
Unbeatable Curb Appeal
If your home has a relatively flat and uninteresting facade, a porch will provide an eye-catching architectural addition. You can work with a contractor to design and install a porch that reflects your taste and enhances your existing home. This will translate into better curb appeal from every angle. Your guests will enjoy a warm and inviting space where they can relax and enjoy a comfortable and functional outdoor living space.
Valuable Return on Investment
Keep in mind that any investments you make into improving your home will increase the overall value. It isn’t simply money spent. In today’s competitive real estate market buyers are expecting extras like porches and decks. If you are looking to sell immediately, a porch will help you make a great first impression. At the same time, if you don’t plan on leaving any time soon, you will be able to enjoy a beautiful outdoor space for years and still get top dollar when you do sell.
Simply adding a covered porch can improve the comfort and energy efficiency of your home. If the sun is blocked from beating directly into your windows, your HVAC won’t have to work as hard to cool the home. In addition, you will still be able to enjoy the space even when it is raining.
A porch truly is a welcomed and valuable addition to any home. If you want to improve your outdoor living space and add value to your home, talk to the experts at Gerald Jones Company. We can help you through the design and installation process and leave you with the porch of your dreams.
