When designing the exterior of your home you have to think of both style and longevity. It’s no secret that first impressions are important and curb appeal is crucial if you ever want to sell your home. Harsh weather conditions can be tough on anything that lives outside so investing in something just to have to fix it every spring doesn’t seem appetizing.

But what if you could have that sleek entry structure that’s made of a strong, maintenance-free material? You can! Most of the entry structures you will find at Walpole Outdoors are made in the low maintenance wood alternative AZEK. This cellular PVC material looks just like wood but will never rot, split, chip or sustain water damage. Your home entry will look brand new all year long for many years to come.

Now that the practicality is out of the way you can think design. The sky is the limit in creating your perfect entry. You can start off with something simple and small like a planter or trellis at the doorway, something to add a little interest to a standard area of the home.

From there you can think fencing and gates. A beautiful unique walk gate is the perfect statement structure for the outside of a home acting as both a decorative touch and a practical one. Likewise, fencing can be used decoratively in panels at the end of a driveway or as standalone regal pillar posts.

If you are looking for something larger you can add a great entry pergola to provide shade to the doorway and the length of a porch. Add a few lattice panels to the sides and you have an entrance that guests will be complimenting for decades.
