What Are the Benefits of a CT Porch Addition?

The front of your home offers the first impression to visitors, passing cars, and neighbors, and is the first thing you and your family will see when you return from a day at work or school. If you are looking to boost your home’s curb appeal, start with the front of your home is the best approach. Continue reading to learn why adding a porch is a beneficial investment for homeowners.

Additional Recreational Space

Adding a country porch to your home will provide additional living space and the opportunity to enjoy the fresh air whenever you see fit. Want to enjoy the cool summer breeze while sipping on your favorite cocktail? With a new porch, you can do that at your leisure. A CT porch addition not only offers more room for relaxation with your family, but you can also entertain friends and neighbors, while creating a dramatic new appearance for your home.

Porches Add Extra Storage

If you have a smaller home, a porch may be an ideal option for storing coats and extra shoes. With the extra space you can prevent unnecessary clutter throughout the rest of your house, and you will have the option to leave the items you need for going out right by the front door. Why not try putting a small bench in the porch for the children to sit down to tie their laces? A porch simplifies your morning routine and can help you to keep the rest of the house organized.

A Cleaner Home

If you end up following our advice and store your shoes and extra shoes in the porch, you will prevent visitors from tracking mud into your home’s entry way. This seems like a small benefit, but honestly, it’s a great advantage: the less mess you have to deal with, the less time you will need to spend mopping. If you have light color carpets in your home, a porch will become your new best friend.

High Return On Investment

We understand that home renovations can be stressful, both on your mind and your wallet. So, when you are considering a major home improvement project, it is important that you consider what will yield the greatest return on investment (ROI). Some projects offer a larger return than others. So, will a porch add value to your home and can you expect to make money back during resale? The answer to both questions is yes! If you add usable, liveable space to a home, you add value.

The key is to keep your improvements in line with the values of your neighborhood. For instance, if you add a $15,000 redwood deck to your home, you can’t expect a buyer to pay $15,000 more for your home when they can buy a comparable home with a regular deck for a fraction of the cost. You want to keep up with the “Smiths”, but not outdo them.

More Natural Lighting

Since porches are a hybrid of the indoor/outdoor experience, you can benefit from an increased amount of natural lighting. If you are particularly keen on natural light, you might enjoy skylights in the porch roof. Porch skylights work effectively by allowing natural light to flood the porch for a heightened outdoor experience.

Keep the Heat In

I know we are months away from cold weather; however, on cold winter days, you will definitely benefit from a porch installation. Consider this, when it’s cold you will likely have your heat on full blast; your bills can get pretty high in a short period of time if some heat is escaping out your front entry door. Porch enclosures allow your home to retain its heat by creating an extra barrier to stand between your front foyer and the outdoors.

Protection From Outdoor Elements

The front hall/foyer of any home is often a dusty and dirty space. That’s because water, leaves and other debris tend to fly into our homes whenever we open the front door. But with a CT porch addition, you can leave the elements outside where they belong. That’s because these enclosures act as a buffer between your home’s interior and the dirty bits that are lurking outside.
