A portico is a covered porch, supported by columns, that offers shade and protection from the weather for a home’s front entrance. That’s the practical aspect of a portico. Aesthetically a well-designed portico can become a transformational feature. While a portico surrounding your front door may not measure up to the Parthenon or centuries-old Greek temples, it will offer a pleasing visage and dramatic eye appeal, all while promising gracious shelter.
Classic Elegance, Modern Performance
Some contractors treat a portico as an afterthought. But at Nations Choice Windows we know a well thought out, carefully designed, and sturdily built portico is an important feature of your home. It is the open arms welcoming visitors even before they reach your front door (which you should also consider upgrading, by the way).
That’s why we construct our porticos out of the same high-quality, high performance, durable materials that go into our roofs and siding. Imagine the impression you can make with a seamless integrated roof, supported by stout columns that gracefully reach up to a lofty ceiling. Now add a brilliantly lit chandelier, or even a rotating ceiling fan to provide your arriving guests with a cooling breeze on a hot summer day. Spectacular.
