Front Porch Installation Emeryville, CA
Create an inviting entry to the front door. A nice curb appeal always gives visitors and friends a good feeling. The front porch should be designed to create more living space, a place to rest, a place to talk with family members, or just relax and enjoy the neighborhood feel. Unfortunately the front porch importance and great appeal it once had, has been in decline the past decade or so. This has a lot to do with the modern conveniences of today, such as the television, cell phone, air conditioning, backyard decks and sometimes the mad rush of the day to get in the house. Mares & Dow Construction has been reviving front porches and restoring them for the past 30 years. On a lot of lot of older homes with existing front porches, the replacement of the front door with a new beautiful door with nice side light windows, or some new trim and moldings, or repair to the steps and railings is all it would take to bring the front of the house back to life. Mares & Dow has added a lot of porches to newer homes in the backyard where there is a existing door from the laundry room or garage.
