Here in the Piedmont Triad, there are many days throughout the year that the heat will force us inside. If you love being outside but don’t want protection from the direct sun, a covered porch (also called open porch) is a great choice. Enjoy all the fresh air and breeze. Even enjoy the mist of a spring rain when you grab a sandwich on a table nestled under your open porch. A covered porch is a great option for your pool area. Perhaps you want to enjoy watching the young ones swim while escaping the direct sun. Don’t forget an open porch around the front of your home. Completely transform the look, feel and lifestyle options of your home with a covered porch.
