All-American Front Porch Refresh

Designer: Morgan Bishop, Model Remodel

Location: Portage Bay, Seattle, WA

Scope: Front Porch & Pergola, Exterior Painting

Sustainability: Low-VOC paint, 80-90% recycle rate, composite decking

Is there anything more classic Americana than a red, white and blue house? An exterior remodel refreshed the front façade and combined classic colors to increase curb appeal dramatically. A porch and pergola, along with a new coat of paint, make this the perfect place for family hangouts in the summer.

While most of this remodel was purely aesthetic, we did replace some siding and posts that were in poor condition. After that, it was pretty straightforward. We built the deck and pergola structure so we could lay the decking. The client selected a 6″ AZEK Arbor Collection decking, which has a realistic wood finish. The composite decking and pressure treated posts will last a very long time! The pergola overhead is painted wood to match the trim of the house.

Once the build was complete we did all the blue house touch-up paint, followed by white on the pergola. The clients purchased some beautiful rocking chairs and an outdoor heater so they can sit outside and enjoy their yard even in the Spring and Fall. They plan on getting some fresh landscaping done to really create an oasis. Their family pup (a golden retriever of course!) and a flag waving in the wind complete this all-American look.
