A great deal goes into the planning of a new front porch installation. First, you need to consider the house itself. Is it new construction or old? Once we determine which material will be used in your project, we can move on to the next steps. Speaking of steps, the stairs and railings are an important part of any front porch project. When you have ALD front porch contractors build a new front porch addition on your home, you change the entire presence of the house as viewed from the street.

A covered porch can be constructed for either your front door or your back door. It can be as simple as an awning or it can be a second roof constructed for a specific appearance. When you have a covered porch at your entryway, you enhance the curb appeal as well as increase the value of your home. Just like the porch itself, a covered porch can be as large or as small as you choose. A covered porch can be small to cover just your entryway or it can be large enough to cover a wraparound porch. The possibilities are endless, and our covered porch contractor can help you decide which covered porch addition will be right for you.
With our covered porch contractors, you can expect the highest quality materials and that it will be constructed in compliance with Minneapolis’ strict building codes.

You will have a choice of a wide array of colors and styles to work with. We guarantee you will be pleased with the final result and that your porch installation will fit within your budget.
When you have ALD porch builders add a screened porch to your house, you are essentially adding a whole room. The possibilities of a screened porch addition are endless. What used to be a simple sunroom can now be built to include so much more. A screened porch installation allows you to have a room in your home that crosses over between the fresh air of the outdoors and the luxury of the indoors. When you include a fireplace and other heating elements to your porch addition, not even our harsh Minnesota winter will keep you from enjoying the view while staying nice and warm. During the summer months, you can enjoy the sunshine and fresh air without those pesky mosquitos ruining your days or evenings.
Your screened porch installation can be as large or as small as you want. These days, screened porches are not something you hide in the back of your home. It is becoming popular to have a large screened porch in the front of your home as well. If you are ready to appreciate outdoor living year-round, take the time to sit down with our experienced porch builders to see what ALD can do for you. We have the experience you need to design a screened porch that enhances your home while incorporating your own personal style. Every screened porch we build is also in full compliance with the Minnesota building code and permits will be in place before construction begins. If you are ready to design the screened porch addition of your dreams, schedule your consultation today.
When you choose a porch addition constructed of stone and concrete, you are guaranteed to have a porch that adds character to your home, not to mention curb appeal. Stone porches are constructed of natural stone pavers and concrete. Pavers are most commonly made of cobblestone, flat, bluestone, flagstone, sandstone, travertine, granite, or limestone. They come in a variety of colors, and each type gives you a different effect based on their surface and density. Pavers typically have a more rounded and smooth surface, but they are not your only option. Other types of stone will have rougher edges for a more rustic effect.
When your ALD porch contractors install a stone porch, they take your selection of stones and install them in layers. The amount of concrete required to seal the stone will depend on the interstitial spacing. Some of the heavier types of stone can be constructed on top of either fine or coarse gravel as they can be closely packed without the need for concrete sealant. Each stone porch we construct will be in compliance with the strict Minneapolis building code for porch construction. Due to the large variety of stones available, no two stone porch installations ever look exactly the same.
When you are ready to begin your porch installation project, you can count on the ALD professionals to build your porch the right way. Our experienced team of porch builders will have all of your building permits in place prior to beginning your project. Our design team will make sure that your porch is built to the specifications agreed upon during the design process. You will be involved in every step of the design and build process as we find that constant communication between our construction teams, designers, and our customers are the key to keeping the project on track and leaving you, the customer, happy with the final project.
At ALD, we believe that each of our landscaping design projects incorporates the individual style of the customer while preserving the integrity of the style of your home. The final project will be a porch addition that you can be proud of for years to come. It will also be the beginning of a long relationship, as you may have plans for future projects such as patios, retaining walls, walkways, and hardscapes that will require the same attention to detail that is used to construct your porch. The options of things you can do to enhance your property are endless, and each one will increase the value of your home.
