Marshall Exteriors Case Studies: New Front Porch in Geneva NY

Wednesday, January 17th, 2018 by Christine Natale


Bob, a handyman himself felt that he should get some supports under his front porch as it was beginning to sag. When he went under the porch he discovered rotted wood and knew that he needed to call the experts. Bob was unsure of who to call as there were so many contractors in his area.


Fortunately for Bob, Marshall Exteriors had done a lot of work on his block in the last six months so he decided to call the number on the yard signs that he kept seeing. Shortly after he called, he met with one of the estimators, Anthony, and felt that he was going to be treated with respect and receive the highest quality product from Marshall Exteriors. 

The crew went to work right away by removing the existing porch. In order to do this the crew added temporary support beams to hold the porch roof while the construction was completed. After the porch was demolished, new pressure treated wood posts were placed in new, deep holes in the ground. At the bottom of the holes a cement support can be found providing this new structure with the best foundation. Now a frame could be built using more pressure treated wood. On the frame, tongue and groove PVC boards in a 'battleship grey' color were installed. Leading to the porch, a new set of stairs were built.  To keep the with the look of the porch the crew installed new steps using composite materials in 'stone ash' color for the treads and 'white' color  for the backs. 

New railings of white vinyl by Kingston were installed along the porch and the new steps. To complete the protection and look if the porch 'white' color facia was added to the header and sides of the porch. Finally, 'grey' color picture frame lattice was added to the bottom of the new structure to seal off the underside and to give beautiful curb appeal.
