CrossWorks Carpentry.."Where Every Nail Has a Purpose"
On this job I'll be taking down the existing porch from the columns down. I'll be installing a new "maintenance free" porch with materials that will need painting. With Fiberglass structural columns, vinyl railings, composite decking, and PVC Trim, this new porch will only need a power wash every 3 or 4 years to look just as good as day one. When it comes to having a consistent appearance year after year. Using this approach is by far the most rewarding in the end. No work and great looks!
With support posts in place, it's time to chop! One section at a time.
Half way there. Side view.
Setting 6x6 support posts for columns. Beam is now in place, and we're ready for floor joist.
