Q & A 

.Everything you need to know about Porches. What is a Porch?

A porch is an extension which is built in front of the door to your house and it can range in size to a small hallway or an entire room. It can be made into an open air or enclosed porch depending on your budget and space permitting. A porch can be made of brick, glass or uPVC. It will have a roof, brick walls, windows, a door and will require foundations. If desired the colours we select can match your existing windows and walls that will naturally blend in with your house, so it looks like it’s always been a part of the structure.

Do you need planning permission for a Porch?

It does not normally need planning permission when building a front porch so long as it does not exceed 2 square metres in area and is more than 2 metres from a public road or footpath. If the porch has a tiled or slated pitched roof, it must not exceed 4 metres in height or 3 metres for any other type of roof. It is advisable to always check with your local authority or maybe a neighbour who had already built one in your area.
