Secondly, how do you remove a front porch? Pry off the siding from around the outside of a porch that has walls. Drive a pry bar under the siding and pry it loose. Begin at the top at one end and work your way across and down the siding. Remove the decking if it's installed under the siding, using the same method described to remove roof decking in Step 2.

The same goes for the colder months.
