1. Porch. The port of welcome to any house. A porch can provide cover on a rainy day or shade when it’s hot and sunny. The advantage of a concrete porch over a wooden porch is that pouring a concrete porch is much more time efficient. Concrete porches will undoubtedly last longer and don’t need to be weather treated unlike wooden porches. The design can be as simple or elaborate as desired.
2. Patio. While the porch is the face to your home, the patio acts as your outdoor living room. Patios are perfect for entertaining guests whether it be a summer holiday, family gathering or just a good old fashioned barbeque. Stone and concrete patios are extremely easy to clean up and maintain.
3. Sidewalk. Many homeowners build sidewalks and walkways for safety. Roadways without sidewalks are twice as likely to result in pedestrian crashes. Sidewalks have also proven to increase foot traffic which many homeowners find desirable in their neighborhoods. You may want to look over your town’s zoning procedures before deciding to lay down a sidewalk.
4. Design Arches. The entryway to your home may be perfectly framed with a design arch. They provide practical uses as such as cover during inclement weather while also acting as a gateway to your house. Design arches can give a home a historical feel but can also make more modern designs stand out.
