Simple Columned Portico
Add depth to your home with this type of portico. Characterized by simple columns with a small roof, the columned portico frames your front entryway while also protecting you from the rain, sun and other elements when entering and leaving your home.
Blending portico and traditional front porch elements, this option gives you more square footage than a standard portico. Besides complementing the architectural aesthetic of your home, the portico porch increases your outdoor living space, making it perfect for entertaining guests.
Like an enclosed porch, an enclosed portico offers year-round use, whether you’re looking to utilize the area as a mudroom or create an inviting foyer. This type of portico still brings a level of intrigue to the front of your home while providing total protection.
Portico with Cultured Stone
Take your portico design to the next level with cultured stone. By outfitting your steps and pillars with cultured stone, you can add natural texture to your outdoor space for a distinct, high-quality appearance.
