The entrance to your home, including the front door, porch, walkway and railings, is key to the impression visitors will form about you and your house. Keeping the entrance in top shape and always welcoming can go a long way toward establishing a positive feeling for you, your family and your guests.
If your entrance is in need of an upgrade, let Belvedere Home Improvements Ltd. step in and assist you with your entrance project in East York.
When performing an entrance upgrade, we usually remove the entire original entranceway and choose materials for the new structure that match the remainder of the home or replicate what was previously there.
A new natural stone walkway and stairs with a wrought iron safety rail gave this home an elegant entrance and overall appearance.
We design entranceways to match the home. Here, exterior tile over concrete plus natural stone stair treads complement the stucco finish and overall appearance of the home. Well-built brick walks and steps are always welcoming.
Wells Hill Entrance Project
This Wells Hill Ave. porch, walkway and steps were restored to their original condition by replacing all deteriorated materials. The porch was repaired with new pine and finished with a primer and two coats of Benjamin Moore paint.
The new paving brick on the walkway and steps was laid on a 4’’ poured concrete base and coated with two applications of waterproof silicone to provide protection for many years to come.
Belsize Dr. Entrance Project
We completely constructed this gorgeous Belsize Dr. front porch entranceway to include matching stucco walls. The floors and stairs are covered in Indian limestone.
The newly constructed gable roof structure is supported by decorative wood pillars and trimmed with pine moldings and dental trim. The project was finished by protecting the wood with a primer and two coats of Benjamin Moore latex paint. Beautiful wrought iron railings were installed for both appearance and safety.
The owners of this Glenpark Ave. home had planned for some time to have a masonry veranda across the complete front of their home, with space below for storage and a cold room. Belvedere was fortunate to be their chosen contractor. Our team obtained plans to be approved by the homeowners, as well as the building permits.
We excavated and constructed the storage and cold room using concrete block and we waterproofed from the exterior.
The building of the porch involved the construction of block back up walls and a brick veneer finish with the addition of a double slider baked enamel aluminum window with screen to also offer added ventilation. The stairs and floors were formed and poured using steel reinforced concrete, while the support columns to support the roof extension are matching brick.
The complete front of the existing roof was reconfigured to create a cottage roof set on the new columns. We stripped and completely re-shingled the roof so that they matched. The installation of decorative wrought iron railings creates an attractive finish. The strength of this support would accommodate a second floor addition if so desired in the future.
We installed all new seamless baked enamel eavestroughing and the porch trim and ceiling is maintenance free baked enamel aluminum.
Belvedere performed the finishing touches by cleaning up and removing all debris and completely re-sodding the front lawn.
