Basically porches are small conservatories, with the same range of styles and products available. And just as our conservatories all our porches are made to measure so you can create the style that is suitable for you home.
Roofs: Porch roofs can be a conventional timber / felt construction, a pitched tiled roof, or our full range of conservatory roofs systems are available to create cost effective attractive designs. The full range of conservatory roof glazing is also available to create the right feel to the porch. GRP Flexi-Porch roofs make an attractive porch and are designed that is quite unique and rare.
Doors: A full range of doors is also available for entrance to the porch. While the most popular is a single door, French doors are an effective way of making a feature of the entrance to your home; they can also be fitted with full moulded panels to create the look of a timber double entrance door.
Ventilation: While a porch is not a room where you will be spending long time, in a south facing porch will get hot, so it is advisable to put in some form of ventilation.
Glass: Porches are an ideal way to make a feature of the entrance to your home. Our full range of decorative glass is available to complement your design and add your own touch of flare. Decorative bevelled cut glass is a particularly attractive feature. Toughened safety glass is installed according to building regulations. Pilkington 'K' glass, Pilkington Active glass and Lifestyles glazing upgrades can all be fitted into a porch design.
Base: The base of a porch is as varied as a conservatory base. You may want a small wall at the base of your porch or possibly a full height wall at one or both sides to give a permanent wall to hang coats against. Alternatively a fully glazed design to let more light in may be more to your liking and we can also use moulded panels to create a low level feature.
Finishing touches: Floor tiles, plastered internal walls, electric's are all finishing touches that we offer. Why not ask for a broken down quotation so you can see different options available and different prices.
Planning Permission: Porches can be constructed up to three square meters on the front of a residential property without the need for planning permission
