A Custom Porch Conversion in York, ME


by | Aug 31, 2017 | Construction

Clients often spare no expense as they envision the spaces of their dreams. That’s to be expected in the world of custom glass design! There’s a big difference between a prefabricated enclosure and a custom engineered glass structure assembled from the industry’s finest materials. A transformative renovation project introducing a skylight, addition, or enclosure is a serious commitment that can bring incredible value to your home, and it’s natural to want to maximize that value.

We leverage our experience to provide accurate quotes at competitive prices. This holds true across the spectrum, from our smallest to our most lavish projects. Today’s construction showcase post features a porch enclosure completed in York, Maine. The client wanted to convert their porch into a custom enclosure to create an excellent space for relaxation and entertainment that could be enjoyed well into the year’s later months. Rather than introduce a new enclosure to the property, a conversion of the existing porch was preferred as a way to save both time and money.

The existing porch area was converted into a three-season room via the addition of a maintenance-free wall system. Key features include tall windows and lovely sliding glass doors. The project began late in the season and it was important for us to work quickly. We did just that by completing the project in just over a week. This is one of the benefits of working with the existing deck or porch of your residence as opposed to beginning a more complicated renovation: you can enjoy great results in a fraction of the time.

Any porch with a roof is a great candidate for this system; you’ll extend the usable time of your porch late into the fall season. The optional introduction of insulated glass and a heat source will fully winterize your space if desired. Remember: we’re a New England company that has a deep working knowledge of the construction standards necessary for a local space to fully withstand the elements. Let us know what you hope to achieve, and we’ll put together the ideal strategy for your limitations and budget. Let’s take a closer look at how this project came together:
