We Love the New Porch

Sitting On The Porch

My Wife and I have decided we wanted to do some remodeling and improvements on our home. Talking with friends, they gave us the impression this would be a stressful situation for both of us. Friends told us there would be many more choices we would be required to make and there would be many situations where there would be no perfect choice. They said much of the stress would come from delays, some understandable, some just because our contractors had other commitments we were not aware of. Needless to say, we began to have second thoughts. But, after a couple of weeks of mulling it over, we decided to try and find a suitable contractor for our job.

I Wanted a Porch

We decided one of the things we want is a screened porch all the way across the front of the house. Since we had a porch at our entry, we would have no problem with the setback rule. Thinking about the porch, we realized it would be difficult to match the porch roofing with the rest of the houses old roof. Since we probably were going to need a new roof soon, we put a new roof in the plan. Instead of going with the usual shingles we decided on having a new metal roof installed. We chose a standing seam type steel metal roof.

Interviewing And The Smart Move

After interviewing and getting bids from several contractors, we decided on a local full-service remolding contractor and Houston metal roofing contractor our friends recommended. They are known as Houston’s metal roofing experts. It turns out; we had more decisions to make. We finally hired an architect to design the porch and roof line. Hiring the designer was probably the smartest decision we made. With the architectural plans, he produced, our contractor was able to right to work on the addition. It also allowed both contractors to coordinate their work so things went really smooth and they finished pretty much on time.

Now I’m Finally Sitting On the Porch

This evening I’ll be sitting out on the porch in a rocking chair having a cool drink with my wife. We wave at the neighboring kids as they ride by on their bicycles. The ceiling fans keep the air circulating. The porch was a great idea and a great addition to home life for two old geezers.
