About Us


Frank Knight founded Mr. Porch in 2008 (and started building Chicagoland porches in 2002) to ensure homeowners and businesses had a dependable, high-quality partner to take care of all of their porch needs. We are a porch builder specializing in building new wood porches & fixing and maintaining existing ones. Quality materials along with superior workmanship and service are what makes Mr. Porch the most trusted name is Chicago.

We’ve built nearly 2,000 decks and porches since we began this company, and will do all we can to earn your trust, business and referrals.

We take care of A to Z

From creating architectural drawings to pulling all necessary permits to managing our crews to doing a final walk through with you to address any concerns, you can expect Mr. Porch to make your project as seamless and easy as possible.

Quality materials

We use some of the best quality hardware (screws, brackets, braces, etc.) and wood (or metal) money can buy. It may cost us more, but it ultimately cost YOU LESS. We’re building Chicagoland porches that you can expect to last several decades with proper maintenance.

Quality craftsmanship

Our crews specialize in European-style craftsmanship and attention to detail. They are experienced, focused and hard working. You can see our high standards with every piece of wood, screw and project they handle.

Fair pricing

We really pride ourselves on often being that “middle bid” – not the lowest and definitely not the highest. We use better materials and building techniques than the lowest-bid contractors but are always careful to keep our pricing competitive and fair. Our customers definitely say Mr. Porch offered them the best value.
