Steps to Designing and Building a 3 Season Porch by Porch Life of Greater Charlotte NC


Decision Making Process for a 3 Season Porch

These homeowners were looking for a way to enjoy their beautiful back yard in the Greater Charlotte, NC area in the spring, summer and fall.  They had a flagstone patio at grade level and a raised stone patio but found they rarely used both of them because they had no cover or protection from weather, bugs, pollen and the hot sun in summer.  They contacted Porch Life to help them design and build a 3 season porch.

WeatherLite Porch Windows Selected for the Porch

There wasn't enough room below the second floor windows to offer the option of a gable roof so they opted for a flat rubber roof which allowed them to have a high 10' ceiling that would give their porch a large airy feel.  They also wanted to have the option of having a screened in porch but be able to close it up in inclement weather and when the pollen is so terrible in spring.  Porch Life offered them the WeatherLite Porch Windows.  These are 4 panel windows that can be opened all the way up or all the way down behind the railings offering 75% air flow which is almost as good as a fully open screened in porch.  You can see a video about these amazing windows by clicking here

Other Custom Features Selected to Complete the Porch

Porch Life used Cox Laminated Columns to construct this porch.  The advantage of these columns is that they are hollow and offer the possibility of hiding wires in the column and installing switches and outlets where needed.  
Tile flooring was selected and provided a nice neutral feel that beautifully accented the homeowner's furniture selections.
Porch Life built a coffered ceiling with a stained pine ceiling accented by white beams.  Selected Lighting fixtures with ceiling fans gave the porch a relaxed nautical feel.

Porch-Life.com/blog: Porch Life Earns Esteemed 2016 Angie’s List Super ...

      
  
Porch Life Earns Esteemed 2016 Angie’s List Super Service Award
Award reflects company’s consistently high level of customer service

PorchLife of Greater Charlotte, NC has earned the home service industry’s coveted Angie’s List Super Service Award, reflecting an exemplary year of customer service to members of the local services marketplace and consumer review site in 2016. 

This achievement is particularly significant as Angie’s List experienced unprecedented member growth in 2016. More than 1.6 million consumers, many of whom were eager to quickly hire highly qualified service pros, joined Angie’s List after the company added a new, free membership tier.

“Companies that can meet higher demands without missing a beat in their exemplary performance standards truly do stand apart from their peers,” said Angie’s List Founder Angie Hicks. “Only a fraction of the Porch & Deck companies in Greater Charlotte, NC were able to do it.” 

Angie’s List Super Service Award 2016 winners have met strict eligibility requirements, which include an “A” rating in overall grade, recent grade, and review period grade. The SSA winners must also be in good standing with Angie’s List, pass a background check and abide by Angie’s List operational guidelines.

Quality Porches, Decks, Outdoor Living & Home Additions Since 1997

Service company ratings are updated daily on Angie’s List as new, verified consumer reviews are submitted. Companies are graded on an A through F scale in areas ranging from price to professionalism to punctuality.

For more than 21 years, Angie’s List restricted access to its verified reviews to consumers who paid membership fees. When the company removed that barrier, some companies worried that the new, non-paying members would not be as engaged as members of the past. Experience has shown, however, that these newly added members are just as engaged – across all age groups – as prior members. Also, because the company continues to adhere to its review verification process, there has been no degradation of review quality.

“The biggest change at Angie’s List is that we are connecting even more consumers to high quality service professionals,” Hicks said. “And that’s good for everyone.”

Angie's List helps facilitate happy transactions between more than 4.5 million consumers nationwide and its collection of highly rated service providers in more than 720 categories of service, ranging from home improvement to health care. Built on a foundation of more than 10 million verified reviews of local service, Angie's List connects consumers directly to its online marketplace of services from member-reviewed providers, and offers unique tools and support designed to improve the local service experience for both consumers and service professionals.
