Porch Floor and Ramp Project
This project originally consisted of replacing and making wider the porch floor, replacing porch posts, replacing ramp, and installing PVC railing. Added to this project was re-grading around porch to prevent water from standing at the basement wall under porch floor, and sealing concealed concrete porch stoop and steps that were cracked from sinking soil. Also added was installation of FauxPanels Windsor Random Rock around perimeter of porch and ramp, and on foundation in front of the house.
Image below shows porch floor and ramp construction underway.
Homeowner chose a beautiful stain for the wood floor and ramp, great looking porch posts, and a wonderful design for PVC railing. What a difference it will make!
Below is shown a smooth transition from the concrete pad, to the below-grade ramp floor frame. Pad is connected below grade to the ramp frame, and to blacktop drive, to prevent future mis-alignment.
Image below shows the back of the ramp, and side of the porch floor.
Below is the South side of the porch floor. Framing under floor and ramp almost ready for the FauxPanel stone.
Image below shows foundation on South side of porch. This side, as well as the North side, will also have FauxPanel stone applied, to give a uniform look to the front of the home. Some removal of soil will be done to allow for water to drain away from foundation, prior to FauxPanel stone application.
