When adding a portico to your home one of your most important decisions is the roof style. That’s why we carefully consider your home’s existing roof style to ensure that the portico fits seamlessly with your home’s exterior.
In two story-homes, the second story window configuration may help dictate your roof style options. For example, if there are several windows on the second story, the portico roof should not obstruct the windows. A great solution is to use a flat roof on the portico to retain visibility out of the windows. In some cases, homeowners have asked us to add a top railing as an attractive feature above the portico.
Another factor is if your home has a single or multiple roof lines. We typically complement an existing roof style but we also will mix and match rooflines if it will give your exterior a more distinctive look.
Let’s consider a common roof style called the “hip” roof. A hip roof portico offers a significant amount of protection and shelter from the rain.
In particular, metal hip roofs are becoming very popular because they complement your existing roof while offering a longevity and contemporary appeal. At Georgia Front Porch, our metal roofing features a powder-baked finish that doesn’t require painting and comes in a wide variety of colors.
Our approach to selecting the right roof for your portico is simple but effective. We typically develop a photo proposal for your review before any work begins. This method enables you to see your options before construction begins so that the results are even better than you ever imagined!
