Repair to Front Porches
Older homes with covered front porches can sometimes result in a sag to the existing structure. This is due to rot in the wooden post or beams holding the structure up. However it may also be to poor foundation or no foundation at all under the support posts. A sagging front porch can result in a more serious problem to the structure of the rest of the home. The roof line of the front porch may be part of the structure of the home and can result in sagging in this portion of the house. A repair to the front porch can be made by repairing the beams and or support posts but may also include ensuring there is a foundation to support the entire structure.
