What Is a Portico?

A portico is a gorgeous exterior installation that can add value, curb appeal and a focal point to any home. A portico is a covered porch, usually at the entrance of a home or building, that is supported by columns. Adding a portico to your home is a practical extension that can add protection to your home and offer shelter from the elements. Our team at Preferred Home Improvement will show you why a portico might be right for you and your home.

Front Door Portico

Basic styles for your front door portico include flat, gabled, curved or hip roof styles with added dimensions and unique columns to highlight your home’s entryway. If you’re looking to add dimension to a flat or dull facade, our experts can provide the grand entrance look and feel you desire.

Enclosed Portico

If including a supplementary living space to your home is what you desire, adding an enclosed portico can help you achieve this. Enclosing a portico will offer you additional shelter without spending a fortune and minimize dirt and debris from entering your home.

Portico Garage

Make your home unique by adding a portico garage. Oftentimes, garages are built with little to no design elements in mind leaving them to look very basic. Sometimes called a garage arbor, this architectural accent can boost curb appeal and give your home extra dimension to a very flat exterior. At Preferred Home Improvement, our contractors can offer a hassle-free design consultation to add an appealing focal point to a dull entry point.

Choosing a Portico Style for Your Home

A portico installation can be simple, with basic columns that blend seamlessly with your home’s existing architecture or it can be something more ornate, with custom design elements or enclosed with walls. Porticos are installed using materials that are completely customized to your style and your home by our skilled craftsmen to ensure your new portico is exactly what you want it to be.
