The problem: Rich (a homeowner in Cleveland Ohio) had a problem – the lack of a front porch roof caused the concrete stoop to get icy and unsafe in the winter, the front entry door was hard to open, and the look of the front entrance was not as nice as Rich would like. Rich wanted to make sure to do this project with low maintenance materials to minimize time he might need to spend maintaining the roof and porch structure.

The solution: Steve Vlk (Project Manager from Cleveland Design & Remodeling) designed a hip style front roof which was attached to the existing home. Steve recommended materials for the project to compliment the architecture of the home and to keep the structure as maintenance free as possible for Rich. Here are the specific decisions Rich and Steve made to achieve a safe, stylish, and better functioning front porch design.
