Porch Systems and Enclosures
What is a Porch System?
A Porch System
is a kit consisting of pre-engineered interlocking wooden modules. Together they make enclosing an existing porch, or creating a new one, simple. Design considerations maintain the “feeling” of a traditional open porch while keeping out insects. In cooler weather, add tempered storm glass window inserts.
Which Construction Materials are Best Suited for Porch Systems and Enclosures?
The choice material for Porch Systems and Enclosures is a hybrid selection of wood types combined with composites such as Azek and/or Exteria. Porch systems constructed entirely of cedar are also popular options. Varied wood species (cedar, pine, poplar, etc.) are selected for use in areas where moisture can most affect the durability of the product. Proven areas, from decades of observation that have the most exposure, have composites laminated to them. These include the bottoms of posts & wall panels. Additionally, all thresholds are solid composite since they are used in direct ground contact.
