Want to showcase the front of your home rather than having it be bland upon welcoming visitors? Then a functional and stylish concrete porch complemented by sturdy and aesthetically pleasing concrete steps are what you want! Respected concrete company and concrete contractor Longwood-based ACCG, Inc. expertly serves the Orlando area and central Florida.
Usually (but not always such as with a lanai or backyard screened porch) a porch is the covered, transitional space introducing and protecting the front entryway of a home; and can be a relaxing setting to lounge and enjoy the outdoors. Relatedly, concrete steps or terraced stairways can be the most prominent feature at the entryway of many homes and public or commercial buildings; however, steps are often just relegated to purely utilitarian status without thought to their design style. Thus, elevating concrete stairs from "blah" to "ah!" makes them the dramatic focal point of any front entrance. We're your local concrete porch contractor, porch builder and concrete steps contractor!
Not every concrete porch or set of steps or stairs is in the front yard and leading to the front of a home, however. Related to the backyard pool screen enclosure is the lanai or backyard screened porch. Especially in year-round-warm-weather environments with an abundance of pool cages, you’ve probably either seen one or spent time in a similar iteration. Basically, a lanai is an architectural compromise that helps to bring the outdoors in.
Lanais frequently open up into wider living spaces of a home, so it wouldn’t be entirely wrong to relate them to covered patios or verandas. Their primary appeal is making it possible to enjoy the outdoors year-round. Like backyard pool screen enclosures (into which lanais often transition as the back patio closer to the house), screened lanais can keep out bugs; and paneled lanais -- available in glass or plastic and which can be removed -- can regulate the temperature should it be too chilly. Additionally, “under-truss” lanais are constructed beneath a home’s existing footprint, with enclosure screens secured to the roof. Plus, when severe storms are in the weather forecast, this under-truss option brings an extra measure of safety.
