The traditional front porch has made an amazing comeback in American residential architecture. For most of the 20th century, people were tearing porches off old houses because they were out of style and required maintenance. Now, it's unusual for a new home not to have a porch, and many people are replacing porches that were ripped off decades ago. Whether the porch is wood or masonry, whether the project is a repair or starting from scratch, this online list should provide you with the parts and pieces you need.
