This is the Interior Floor to Exterior Apron Joint
3/4" thick Azek PVC has been screwed to
Concrete Floor and will become a Thermal
Break between the Warm Interior Floor
and the Cold Exterior Apron & Porch
This Joint is set into the Building 3" so the
Overhead Door actually rests on the Apron
not the Floor, this helps prevent blowing
snow and rain fr m coming under the door.

Finished Covered Porch with Concrete Floor
Massey Massey
Azek PVC Beam & Pole Wrap is maintenance
free and won't rot or dent. Note the Aluminum
Soffit Ceiling with Recessed Light Fixtures.
The Finished Apron is 1/2" lower than the
Floor. The Overhead Door rests on the
Apron not the Floor. This seals the bottom
of the Door well. Blowing Snow & Rain
would have to get under the Door and over
the 1/2" lip to get on your Floor.

Eve Baffles create a venting channel from the
Overhangs to the Attic, and prevent Blown
Cellulose Insulation from plugging this
important Venting Channel

R-19 Fiberglass Insulation is installed on edge

rows of Fiberglass tight to each other.
6 mill Plastic Vapor Barrior is installed

At one point this corner was 2' off the ground. We installed Fill Sand to raise the grade,
and 60 yrd3 of Top Soil to blend in with the lot. Next Spring they'll drag it and plant Grass.
