Our house is over 100 years old. Right now it has a poured concrete slab front porch, which extends the full width of the house, though there is a roof over only the middle of the slab. I am sure that the original porch was made of wood and was replaced at some point in the past with concrete. Can we cover the concrete with wood for a more vintage look without having to tear out all the concrete?
I am not sure how to deal with drainage between the wood and concrete. If we run furring strips crosswise, it seems like water would pool behind them instead of draining. Any ideas?
