Is It Worth Installing a Porch Arbor?

A porch arbor probably isn’t high on your list of things to buy for your home, but it is one of the few minor improvements you can make that will seriously increase the value of your home. Especially if you are thinking of putting your home on the market, it is an inexpensive way to make your home more attractive to potential buyers and in the meantime will make your home more enjoyable for you and your entire family.

When you are looking for a porch arbor, you should first start by going online. There you will find a much wider selection than you would find in any home improvement store, garden center, or patio store, and you will get a better price, too. In fact, you will find that the variety is almost endless and that many of the arbors can be customized to your precise specifications, which can be handy if you have an odd-sized porch area.

What Are the Options?

When you are buying a porch arbor, the first thing you should probably look at is the overall height. If you are placing an arbor near a door, then obviously it has to be wider and taller than the door, but also well underneath the height of the roof of your home. If your porch arbor will be situated much further away from the house, perhaps on an elongated porch, then you have a little more flexibility with the size.

Another issue is the depth of the porch arbor. Generally speaking, if you want more color in your arbor, then you should choose one that is deeper. For instance, an arbor that is three feet or more (36”) will give you a lot more room to intertwine your various plants and provide more greenery for you.

What About Design?

Some people will tell you that the arbor is the feature, while others will insist that it is the plants, vines, and flowers that are interspersed throughout the arbor that are the feature. This really depends on the weather you live in, how much work you are willing to put in, and whether or not you want a clean arbor or one that looks like you have been working on it for years.

At the core of any arbor is the shape – some have arches, some have flat tops, and others have pointed tops that look like the roof of a house. Before you buy any one shape, take a look at the surrounding area to make sure that it won’t clash with your home, your garden, your fence, or any other similar structures.

Decide on Installation.

Finally, it is important to establish how you will be installing your porch arbor. If it will be firmly attached to your home’s structure, such as to an existing deck, then any arbor will do, but if you will be cementing it into the ground, then make sure you select one that has long enough legs that will allow you to do that without reducing the overall size of the structure.
