Porches

Created at our dedicated factory in the South West of England

Porches

  • Make your home stand out from the crowd while creating some much-needed extra space by choosing from our range of made-to-measure porches. A porch is an easy way to stop your home from getting filled with unwanted clutter like coats, shoes, and other items of clothing. Imagine how relaxed you’ll feel coming home, knowing the house is tidier and more organised.

    We create every porch to order and based on each customer’s unique requirements, so your imagination will be the only limit. We can introduce you to a range of brick and wall options, as well as a stylish collection of doors and windows, which will match whichever roof type catches your eye. Decide which style you prefer and explore a wide palette of colours to make your design truly unique.

    For your peace of mind, our materials are built to the highest standard. This means you can create an original and attractive new entryway into your home without worrying about personal security. Our doors, for example, include multi-point locking systems, making it harder for determined intruders to gain access.

    Do you love light? Then we’d recommend a glass roof. If your priority is thermal efficiency, then consider a tiled or polycarbonate roof. Either of these will be cost-effective. Total freedom of design will be yours to enjoy. Your porch can be small or large and can also be extended too. How about adding some benches, so that you don’t have to stand while taking off your shoes!

Do porches need foundations?

As with a conservatory or orangery, a porch will need foundations. This might surprise you, as these are small constructions. In fact, without a solid base, they would become unsteady and not last long. 

It’s important that your porch feels like a natural continuation of your home. That’s why we’ll send a surveyor to visit before work commences. Their job will be to check the foundations and determine what soil you have.

How big can a porch be without needing planning permission?

In almost all cases, they can be built without seeking planning permission from your local authority. That’s because this type of structure is classified as ‘permitted development’.

For this rule to apply, the porch cannot exceed three metres squared. It must also sit at least two metres from your home’s boundary and the highway. Finally, it should not be greater than three metres tall.

If these rules seem confusing, consult your local planning authority. We can also help if you have any questions.

Does adding a porch add value to your home?

There’s lots to think about here. What function will your porch perform, for example? Will your entrance door lead directly into a kitchen or living space? This is fine if you have no specific place to store shoes or coats. Conversely, if you have a spacious hallway where clothing can be hung, your structure will provide aesthetic value only and the value of your home probably won’t increase. Why not add a strong and stylish composite door to improve security. That might give your property the kerb appeal it needs.

What is a good size for a porch?

To avoid planning permission, ensure your structure is no more than three metres squared. Otherwise, it’s down to you. Will this area serve as a storage space for muddy shoes and winter coats? If so, 1.75 metres should be enough. If children or older family members visit, a seating area might be needed, so that they can take off their footwear in comfort. This might involve installing a bench.

Features and benefits

Guarantees you can depend on.

We have built up a great reputation over years of delivering a first class service and excellent products, all from our local, no nonsense all-about-you company.

From characteristic country cottages to contemporary town houses, we’re confident that our products will offer a style and finish to truly transform your home. Through constant innovation the quality, durability and security of our products is genuinely second to none. As a local company we are proud to offer British Standards BS7412/PAS24 for enhanced security.

We refuse to compromise on quality

Our windows are made from British Made, high quality MarinespecTM components, with up to 25 years anti corrosion. They are built specifically for the more exposed areas of corrosion, such as coastal environments to give you worry free performance beyond your guarantee.  We believe spending more on components is worth every penny, and sets us apart from our competitors.

State of the art fabrication for best quality

We have invested millions of pounds into one of the most state of the art manufacturing facilities in the UK.  This enables us to provide you with consistently high quality products at exceptionally good prices. Our loyal factory workers are well trained and take pride in their work, they really care about quality.  Our machines are maintained according to a rigorous servicing regime to keep them in top condition.

Superior energy efficiency

Our ‘A’ rated energy efficient and triple glazed windows are tested by the BFRC, which will save you money on your heating bills. By law your windows and doors have to meet strict thermal performance regulations but you can be rest assured that our products exceed current requirements.

Energy saving is incredibly important and so is keeping your fuel bills down. We are continuously looking for ways to make our homes energy efficient and one way is to choose new PVCu windows and doors. Not only will they help to keep your home warmer, they will reduce your energy loss.

Don’t just take our word for it!

Our suppliers conform to strictly controlled and independently monitored Quality Management Systems such as ISO 9001, to ensure that everything is done correctly and according to best practise.

Our windows are tested independently by British Standards for security, weather tightness and strength performance. This means that periodically, we have to send them to independent test houses, in order to be tested to destruction.

These are just some of the many standards the products in our vast range conform to. Needless to say we take the quality of our products very seriously indeed.
