Building a porches: how to choose the material?
Porches attached to the house can have different functional load: someone arranges a summer kitchen or dining room on it, someone – a second living room with upholstered furniture, someone uses it as a winter garden. Based on the customer’s needs, the material is selected for construction and finishing of the room. It is erroneous to believe that the porches for the cottage must be made of the same material as the house itself. The house, covered with siding, will decorate the glass terrace with elements of metal and plastic. Summer porches must first of all harmonize with the house in style, then the difference in materials will not be striking, and look clumsily.
