Porch vs Patio: Differences Between the Spaces

Patios are typically uncovered, detached elements of the landscape located at the back of the house, while porches are attached elements at the front.Patios are not built into the structure or design of a home. They do not have to share flooring, paint colour, or other elements of a house like porches do.Patios are paved surfaces without roofs, while porches are often attached to the house’s exterior wall and receive a roof.
