Curb appeal is big. It’s a love it or leave it factor, a buy it or sell it factor as well. Anytime someone asks about the value of curb appeal, I tell them it’s extremely important to consider.
One of my previous clients contacted me about a patio cover idea. The challenge was making the porch look like it was built with the house rather than several decades later. Since they wanted a bit of a refresher, now was the time to make improvements.
This porch cover is a labor of love since adding it would change the entire home’s curb appeal. Not only were we adding a porch cover but we were also replacing siding, changing colors, and adding new roofing as well as new lighting. My job is always to find the problems and come up with solutions before building begins as well as point out the details that make it the addition look as though it was intentional and isn’t an addition. I develop the concept and plan for the homeowners and the GC to build from. Here’s how it went. Don’t forget to watch the video at the end to see a bit more.
The above images are the purely conceptual for our clients to approve. They are part of the design process. I always want my clients to feel comfortable with the outcome before the project begins. They get a sense of what to expect and know what they are paying for. This makes the construction phase much smoother and less stressful.
My clients were so thrilled with the process that they decided to move forward with the landscaping one year ahead of schedule! After seeing the concept and how it changed the front of the house, they decided they didn’t want to wait for their desired curb appeal.
I want to thank David Martinez from DMAR Professional Remodelers and his entire crew for their exceptional work on this home. The homeowners were extremely happy with the project and how it turned out. Please visit our gallery for more images of our work. And don’t forget to subscribe to our blog for more updates!
