Project Profiles : A Covered Porch Construction in Scotch Plains, Union County, NJ

This Scotch Plains, NJ home already had a wonderful yard, but its outdoor living area lacked protection from the elements. To fully enjoy their time outside year-round, regardless of the weather conditions or season, these homeowners wanted to enhance their exterior living space by installing a covered porch.

The Job: Building a Brand-New Porch To Complete the Perfect Backyard

A new pool had already been added to the home’s outdoor living space, but the current patio setup lacked shelter from the elements. A covered porch was the perfect finishing touch to complete this outdoor oasis, and it had to fit in seamlessly with the beautiful new pool while feeling like a cohesive extension of the home itself. 

Problem Areas: Working Around a Brand New Pool

   To complement their recently constructed pool, the homeowners decided to add a stylish roofed porch to their outdoor space. By integrating a roof into the existing pool area’s design, the homeowners can now enjoy poolside activities without being concerned about the weather. This addition has created not only a comfortable and shaded area for relaxation but also a striking visual complement to the pool’s aesthetic.

The Goal: Debuting a Haven From the Elements, Just in Time for Summer!

   The introduction of a roofed porch created a cohesive and inviting atmosphere, further enhancing the home’s pool area and allowing for extended outdoor enjoyment throughout the seasons without worrying about excessive sun exposure or unexpected weather changes. While this new feature means that the home’s outdoor space can be used more often year-round, it is especially valuable during the hot summer months when the pool is frequently enjoyed.

  • Azek Trim and Composite Posts

    Azek trim and composite posts were key elements of this project that elevated this porch’s visual appeal and increased its longevity. Azek trim is renowned for its exceptional durability and resistance to moisture, and with its wide array of color options and versatile design capabilities, it added sophistication and architectural detail to the porch. Composite posts complement the trim and provide strength and stability, ensuring a sturdy foundation for the structure. These posts are composed of a blend of materials for superior strength and offer an attractive alternative to traditional wood posts.

  • Vinyl Porch Ceiling

    Durability and low-maintenance requirements were key considerations for this project, so vinyl was the ideal material for the porch ceiling. Vinyl is known for its resistance to moisture, warping, and rot, making it an excellent choice for outdoor settings. By installing vinyl, the homeowners are able to enjoy the benefits of a visually appealing and long-lasting ceiling that requires minimal upkeep and can be effortlessly cleaned.
