What is the material of the roof on the portico? copper only?
I hate the front of my house. It's square and flat. I want a portico, but don't think one will work with this flat colonial. I'm in Waldorf, MD, which is close. Any thoughts? I'm happy to purchase plans.
Lovely portico, but wish the entrance was wider -- more welcoming
no posts, portico connects to the building

How far does the portico extend?
I am trying to protect my all wood door as much as possible and am curious to know how far this portico comes out fromthe house? Thank you.
brackets are pvc and have a hollow center. Fabricated 'L' shaped steel angles were expansion bolted to the masonry exterior wall that support the portico structure. The angles are conceiled by the brackets.
Is it too formal to do a portico? I like this, and it's so open!
Gabled portico. May be nice for a scaled back portico.
Knee braces on a portico, they don't always have to be for gables.
Knee braces can be used in applications other than gables — porticoes, for instance.

Exterior Arch Portico Front Entry
New custom exterior arch portico front entrance. Photo by: Thom Thompson Photography
I have a new colonial with a extensive front spread but it does not have a portico which I think will add to the look. The house is very similar to this picture (all brick) minus the portico. Can you give me a rough order of magnitude of how much something like this might cost?
Do you know the approximate cost to add a portico like this on an existing straight front?
What type of roofing material is on the portico overhang?
the portico is what my front entry needs
Pretty curved portico and love the transom window over door

Hi Laura, thanks for your interest! The portico was built as part of a larger project, so I don' have cost information on the portico alone. You might be able to show the photo to a local builder to get a rough idea of cost. All the best
