Life is good in Roanoke, Indiana. Folks are friendly and progress lives side-by-side with tradition. In this town, front porches are more than places to relax and review the day. Front porches are where you greet neighbors and keep your finger on the community’s pulse.
Archadeck of Fort Wayne designs and builds front porches, back porches, open porches, and screened porches. In this town brimming with good people who know a fine porch when they see one, our porches hit the mark.
Archadeck of Fort Wayne is not only your premier Roanoke, IN, porch builder. We are also the premier designer and builder of Roanoke, IN, hardscapes, decks, and pergolas. We love Roanoke, Indiana, and we love building outdoor living structures for in-town homeowners as well as those in more rural settings.
The most celebrated covered porch in America is the front porch. This holds true in Roanoke, IN, as well. While Archadeck of Fort Wayne is entering our second decade of providing top quality porches to Roanoke homeowners, many of the town’s front porches were built before we arrived on the scene.
We’ve noticed there are still homes without front porches here in Roanoke. If your home is one of those, we can take care of it for you! Archadeck can design and build the perfect covered porch for you and your family. If you fear that a front porch wouldn’t fit with the style of your home, let us put that theory to the test. If you desire a front porch we are ready to take on the challenge of adding a porch to the front of your home.
We can let you in on a not-so-secret secret: Many Roanoke homes with a front porch also have a screened porch at the back of the home. When flying insects are at their worst, your only solution is to retreat! Archadeck of Fort Wayne can add as many porches as you’d like to your home, because it’s hard to have too many porches. We have designed quite a few beautiful screened porches, so if you’re looking for ideas, you’ll find plenty in our screened porches gallery.
When you meet with your Archadeck outdoor living design consultant, we’ll talk about the various materials you may want to select for your screened porch addition. Here are some of the possibilities:
Floor: Pressure-treated wood, composite decking boards, tile, natural stone?
Ceiling: Vaulted ceiling, open rafters, beadboard, painted white, painted blue, stained natural wood?
Walls: If your screened porch is above a certain height from the ground, we are required to include a protective barrier around the porch in addition to the customary screening. Design possibilities include a porch railing and pickets or a solid wall for the lower section and screens filling the space from there to the ceiling. If you have rambunctious young children or pets that could damage screens at floor level, even with pickets, you might opt for a low, solid wall.
