    Default Old porch restoration

    This house had an original wrap around porch. It obviously needs new support and the previous owners just placed block there.
    The porch is sagging in spots and the roof over it looks toneed some new support also.
    We would like to restore it to its' original outdoor purpose.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Default Re: Old porch restoration

    You will need to build a temporary frame of joists underneath the porch and jack it up over a period of months to avoid damaging the porch. Once you get it where you want it, tear out the old supports and rebuild them. This is a tough job and you may need an experience carpenter to get you started and finish the job once its jack up.
