Want to Add a Front Porch or Portico?

Your local Minneapolis Porch & Portico experts at Craftsman’s Choice

The installation of a portico or porch is a great way to extend your outdoor living area. It will also help to add curb appeal, value, and a focal point to your home and property.

Porticos are covered porches and are usually installed at the entrance of your home. It is supported by columns, which can be architectural statements if desired.

The addition of a portico or porch to your home is a type of practical extension that will add protection to your home while providing another layer of shelter from the outside elements. Are you unsure if this is right for you? If so, contact our team, we can discuss the benefits of this installation and how we can help.

Portico Options to Consider

We offer several types and styles of porticos to choose from. Some of the most popular options include:

Front Door Portico

If you want a basic portico for your front door, you can choose a curved, hip, gabled, or flat roof style. We can provide additional dimensions and uniquely styled columns to help enhance the entryway of your home. If your goal is adding dimension to a dull or flat facade, our team can provide you with the “grand” entrance you have dreamed of.

Enclosed Portico

Rather than just having a basic outside entryway, we can also provide an enclosed portico, which provides a supplementary living space to your home. By enclosing the portico, you will get an additional living area, and you will not have to spend a small fortune. Even better, this style of portico will help reduce the high amount of debris and dirt that may enter your home otherwise.

Selecting the Right Portico Style for Your Home

The installation of a portico is something that can be extremely simple. You can have basic columns installed that will blend in seamlessly with the existing architecture of your home. If you want something more ornate, we can handle this, as well. In fact, we can take your ideas and create a custom rendering of what we can do. It is up to you what work is done, but with this custom rendering, you can visualize what we can achieve.

When installing your portico, we will use materials that are completely customized to your home and style. Our trained and professional team will ensure your new portico is exactly what you hope it will be.

What to Expect with Our Porch and Portico Design and Installation Process

When it comes to designing and installing a porch or portico, you will find our team uses a process that ensures you get the results desired and that the project does not exceed your budget. Our process involves the following steps:

Step 1: Free Initial Consultation

The first step in creating your porch or portico is to call us to schedule a free consultation. During this consultation, one of our team members will visit your home to speak with you about what you imagine for the space. During this consultation, we will take measurements, photos and write down the goals you have for the space.

Step 2: Review of the Design and Estimate

Once we have provided you with the initial consultation, the real work begins. We will go back to the office to create a viable design and cost estimates. Our goal is to help ensure you get exactly what you want from the design process. Once you have agreed to our design and costs, you will sign the contract, and we can begin the work.

Step 3: Construction

The construction of your porch or portico will take at least a few days. The exact amount of time depends on the design elements and details you want to be included. We will provide you with a comprehensive overview of how much time we believe the construction process will take and provide regular updates to ensure you know what is going on at all times.

A Recent Minneapolis Portico Testimonial

Our customers say it best.

It is without hesitation that I highly recommend Craftsman’s Choice. We hired them to remove our aluminium siding and replace it with James Hardy siding and soffits. In addition, we had new guttering installed. They installed all new windows in our house. They designed and built a front porch that required a significant roofing change. CC also designed and built a 3 season screened in porch and added a new roof connecting to the original roof. We really kept them busy!! We were involved in the design process, while they listened to our needs and wants. Mike was our first contact with the company. Ryan was our project manager. He did a great job and a is a good person. In fact, all of the staff at CC are high quality people who are true professionals. When they say they want you to be 100% satisfied, they really mean it! We have recommended the company to friends and the one couple who has actually had work done gives them an A+ rating. I wish all contracting companies were like CC because they stand behind their product, their work and their guarantees. I would hire them again! We continue to let friends and family know about our great experience. Do not hesitate to contact them!!
