Adding a portico to your house is a great way to define your home’s entrance. Our team of skilled carpenters will work with you to come up with a design which complements the style of your home. Our team was called in to build a custom portico for this Summit, NJ home. In only one week our team had completed the project.
Our team worked with the homeowners to come up with a design for this home’s new portico.
Due to the scope of this project our team had to get the designs approved, and obtain a building permit.
Once all of the paper work was squared away our team could begin the carpentry work.
Our team built this portico with load bearing composite columns. Composite materials are ideal for exterior projects due to their water resistant characteristic. However, composite materials are often not as strong as regular lumber. These load bearing composite columns are unique in the sense that they are completely moisture resistant, and also strong enough to support the entire structure.
The portico was constructed to incorporate electricity so that a light fixture could be installed.
While on site our team also reworked the existing gutter system to better incorporate the new portico. Our team also used shingles for the new portico which matched the home’s existing roof shingles.
All of the portico’s nail holes were filled, and the new structure was primed and painted.
In only one week our team had built and painted this Summit, NJ home a brand new portico.
Another great project by our team at Monk’s!
