Southern yellow pine is a good choice because it lasts a long time, and tigerwood is another popular choice because it can accept almost any color stain. Angel's heart is easy to work with, mahogany is dense and has fewer knots, cedar is highly durable and redwood is naturally resistant to insects. Natural stone porches are generally more expensive, but do not require much maintenance and can enhance the beauty of a home. Stone porches are easy to clean and highly durable.
Porch Building Costs

There are other factors that may affect cost such as built in benches, custom railings, plant boxes, electrical features, special construction features like building a porch that wraps around the home or a porch that is not flush with the ground and must have stairs.
