A portico is a small porch that is covered by a column-supported roof. This coverage comes in handy during storms, so you can keep your newspaper dry and unlock your door without getting soaked. It is an extra shield from rain and snow that threatens to sneak in through your doorway. Plus, portico roofs add a focal point to your home that increases curb appeal. The result is a completed look.
In addition to building the portico roof from scratch, we took out the old steps and retaining wall so we could add new ones. For the front of the portico roof, we were able to exactly match the siding on the rest of the home. This helped us to wrap up the roof project, along with fresh shingles and trim.
We enjoyed working on this project and are excited to share the photos below.
Building a Portico Roof for a Norwood Homeowner
We enjoyed seeing this project come together. We built a portico roof for our client, a homeowner in Norwood, PA.
We enjoyed this project, installing new roofing and siding in Doylestown, PA! One of the highlights was adding new fiber cement siding by James Hardie. This type of siding is incredibly durable, often lasting a lifetime. The colors stay vibrant and the material repels moisture. That’s important because excess moisture is the main cause of mold and mildew, and it can also attract pests.
A Doylestown Home Gets New Siding and Shingles
This Doylestown homeowner got several updates to their home, including new roofing and siding. We installed GAF Timberline shingles in HD Charcoal. The siding we used on the dormers is James Hardie fiber cement siding in Monterrey Taupe.
We are excited to share these photos from a recent project at a Newtown Square home. We installed new roofing, siding, gutters, and downspouts—the results had a dramatic impact. Quality siding, shingles, and window trim create a striking appearance that looks great for years to come. If you want your home improvements to last, hiring an experienced team that knows the right way to install gutters is also crucial. Water running down the sides of your home will deteriorate the structure in no time, so you want gutters you can rely on during any rainstorm.
Full Exterior Renovation in Newtown Square, PA
Porter Family Contracting installed a new roof using GAF Timberline HD shingles in slate color and added new siding on a recently built addition. The siding was James Hardie smooth lap siding in Mountain sage on the sides, and James Hardie Shake in Mountain Sage on the front. We used Azeck trim around the windows and installed new gutters and downspouts.

As you can see in the photos below, this Glen Mills kitchen needed to be totally gutted and rebuilt.
There comes a time when every home could use a facelift. This is not just necessary for cosmetic reasons, but old siding or a worn roof can also allow in too much moisture creating a serious structural problem. When working with the right contractors, both jobs can be completed at once saving you both time and money.
At Porter Family Contracting, we partner with several leading manufacturers like GAF and James Hardie to provide our clients the best products and warranties possible.
Roofing & Siding Replacement
This Prospect Park home was very dated by the color and style of its shingles. There were also areas where the roofing and siding was coming apart, signs this homeowner was lucky to have caught early. The updates brought to life the home’s architecture and protected the house from leaks and energy losses.
When a storm causes damage to your property, it needs to be repaired quickly. In many cases, this is also an opportune time to complete any other home remodeling jobs you’ve been putting off. Completing multiple projects at once saves you time spent living in a construction zone as well as the money you would have spent having several crews come out to your home at different times. This is the advantage to working with a contracting company that offers a wide range of renovation services.
Repaired Garage, New Roof, New Siding, and More at this Delaware County Home
After a fallen tree tore the entire front wall of this garage, the homeowners gave us a call to repair the damage. However, the project quickly transformed into a full exterior renovation.

Not only that, but we installed new Azeck trim around all windows and doors as well as new James Hardie Fiber Cement Siding in Ocean Blue. We finished off the project with new gutters and downspouts.

There is nothing that can cause damage to your home like poorly installed roofing and siding. That statement was proven true when our team was called to this home in the Northeast Philly/Bucks County area. The home needed a complete exterior renovation after the previous contractor cut corners during installation. Our team was able to remove and repair the damage before moving forward with our renovation. In addition to looking like new, we expect these homeowners will benefit from fewer repairs and better energy efficiency thanks to new windows, siding, and roofing.
New Windows, Roofing, and Siding in Bucks County, PA
This project was a full exterior renovation. We installed new Pella Proline windows with Azeck trim. Next, we installed James Hardie Cedar style Shake on the entire exterior. This choice really accentuates the bungalow style home. We found significantly damaged roof sheathing due to the previous contractor not using the proper material for such a low slope roof. In order to rectify this issue, we needed to install new plywood before installing Certainteeds 3ply low slope roof system and GAF Timberline HD shingles. We finished off the renovation with new gutters and downspouts.
