The owner ordered this directly from an online provider and was not happy with the quality. I am sorry we cannot answer your question more completely.

I noticed the home has two front doors. Is this the main entrance to the home or a secondary entrance?

In New Jersey and New England it is a natural stone called "bluestone" it may be called different things in other parts of the country.

Thank you, Catherine. I live in CA & my daughter is our designer(NKBA, ASID, CGBP) so I am looking for 'green" alternatives for our extensive remodel which includes kitchen/baths/front porch.

Potted plants - What are the names of the potted plants? I love the tropical vibe and I never find what I see in pics at the local nuseries

I am sorry but we do not have the names of the plants. Perhaps you can check with your local nursery and ask about tropical plants that will do well in a covered area in New Jersey.

how thick are the bluestone treads and edge pieces?

Milieu Design
If done correctly, the treadstock used for the treads and any pieces that have the over-hang should be at least 2" thick
The infield can be of a regular stock, but the thicker stuff for the outside and treads is not only structurally better, but looks stronger as a design element too.

Try Lantern & Scroll www.lanternandscroll.com I bought a similar one from there recently, and it was about $300. They were so great and easy to work with. Oh, and they are all made in the USA. Cheers!

Pleas advise me on using shingles on a suburban colonial. - I love shingled homes, especially the new shingles that are some type of composite but look real. I live in a traditional colonial in a New England suburb and I only see shingled homes at the beach. Is it proper to shingle a colonial that is inland? Can you advise me on mixing siding with shingles?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

9. Tidy the porch. After a season's worth of sandy feet tramping back and forth, your porch deserves a good cleaning. Sweep away sand, clean the front windows and door, check porch lights and add a few extras like hurricane lanterns or autumnal potted plants.
AFTER: Columns and sidelights give the entry a classic presence; the porch roof provides protection when the owners are fumbling for keys in the rain. The French door and sidelights let in natural light.
