It’s a place to enjoy a thunderstorm or rain shower without getting wet. Or a venue to entertain guests on a beautiful summer evening. It can even add appeal to your home and help increase its resale value when it’s time to sell.

There are a variety of reasons why it makes sense to add a covered porch to your property — whether it’s a covered screen porch that you can truly enjoy year-round or just a standard porch that’s ideal for using during the warmer weather months. But the path to that dream porch all starts with working with the right contractor.

Questions to Ask a Covered Porch Contractor

How can you determine if you’re working with the right contractor to bring your porch from concept to reality? Here’s a look at some of the key questions you should be asking before you sign any sort of work order:

Can you help me design a porch that would look good for my home?
Porches typically aren’t one-size-fits-all. That said, why would you work with a contractor that can’t meet your specific needs when it comes to building your porch. When you work with Perimeter Remodeling, we’ll work with your specific home style, your requirements and your budget to custom design and build the right porch for your home.
Are you licensed and insured?
If any contractor you’re vetting doesn’t give you a straight answer on this, chances are they’re not — and if they’re not, you don’t want to be doing business with them.
How soon can you begin and how long will it take?
Generally speaking, quality contractors have some sort of backlog that they’ll have to work through first before they can get to your project. If they don’t have any backlog and are eager to start your project as soon as possible, it could be indicative of professional and workmanship issues that are preventing them from securing more work.

Regardless of the quality of the contractor that you’re working with, it’s also good to have a general idea of when a contractor will be able to begin your work and about how long it will take just for your general planning purposes.

Can we speak to a reference that worked with your firm in the past?
Quality contractors have Rolodexes full of satisfied clients that they should be willing to connect you with. If they don’t or appear hesitant to provide you with any previous customers, it could be a sign that the work they do isn’t without its issues and problems along the way.
What's your preferred method of communication?
Communicating with the project manager is one of the more important aspects of the job. It’s important to know who and how to best connect if you have questions or need an update on work — and vice versa. Be sure to know this information so you can speak when it’s necessary and aren’t playing phone tag or waiting for a response.

Things to Know When Building a Covered Porch

In addition to finding the right contractor, there are a number of things that you want to be sure you fully understand before the project commences. Here’s a look at some of these key considerations:

  • Is the porch going to be constructed in the front or the back of the home?
  • How do you intend to utilize the porch?
  • Do you want a conventional porch or a covered screen porch?
  • Do you want add-on features, like a fireplace, ceiling fans, etc.?

And perhaps most importantly, know what your budget is and what you can afford to spend on such a project.

What's the return on investment for adding a porch?
Porches increase your home’s value as well as its curb appeal. It’s estimated that the average ROI for the addition of a porch is about 85 percent.
What are some of the different types of porches?
From covered front porches to screened in front and back porches to rain porches to verandas to custom porches — there are a variety of different porch styles that you can select from, and there’s no true right or wrong answer. There’s just the one that you like best and that works with your home’s style.
How much can I expect to spend on a covered porch project?
The cost largely depends on what type of porch you’re building and what types of value-added features you want to be included. For instance, a typical 200 square-foot porch might cost about $4,500. However, if you’re looking for a bigger porch with more add-on features, the cost could be upwards of $20,000.
