The Perfect Entrance to Your Home

Serving as the entrance into your house, porches help to keep your home warm as well as providing a practical and versatile storage area. Thanks to the introduction of modern materials and engineering designs, porches are now available in a variety of energy efficient materials, including aluminum. Because aluminum frames are much sleeker than those made with other materials, there is much more choice in regards to design. Furthermore, because aluminium does not conduct heat, aluminum porches are great at keeping the heat inside your home and the outside cold from entering it.

Incredibly durable, aluminum porches will not fade in the demanding British weather. Featuring a thorough 11-stage painting process, all of our aluminum porches are guaranteed to continue looking as good as they day they were made. From traditional whites to contemporary blacks and gray, we also offer a great range of realistic woodgrain porches. As such, we can help you create a porch that will make a real statement in regards to your home’s external appearance. By providing porches of exceptional quality as well as the lowest porch prices around, we are proud to help local homeowners not only improve their home lifestyles but also add lasting value to their properties.

Security

Your porch installation may be subject to building regulations to ensure that it remains in keeping with your existing house layout. If permission is needed and granted then there’s very little else for you to worry about as our porches are incredibly secure and will improve the security of your home. All the secure features you would expect of a contemporary window and door such as multi-point locking systems, security hinges & handles and dog bolts are included in the final porch design. This means that you can fill it full of important belongings inside without worrying if they are secure.

Practical

Porches are utilised in all manner of ways by homeowners . They’re particularly handy for storing coats, jackets, umbrellas, shoes other personal belongings. Therefore, it is important that they offer the same level of energy efficiency as the rest of your home. We ensure this by equipping them with double glazed windows and thermally efficient doors and roofing systems.

Cost Effective

There’s no doubt that a porch attached to your home can enhance its overall outlook, but that’s rarely what motivates someone to invest in one. It’s more because it gives you an additional area where you can safely store any personal items that may be taking up essential space inside your home; thereby helping reduce clutter. Large families and those who regularly invite people around will find a porch to be particularly useful and you’d be surprised at just how affordable a porch installation can be.

Our tiles have a strength and toughness to them that exceeds the expectations…

We offer two types of Warm Roof covering; lightweight tile and lightweight slate. Our lightweight tiles come in five colours, whilst our lightweight slate looks virtually identical to that of natural slate thanks to the use of modern materials and design. Both are completely weather-proof and maintenance-free.

Lightweight Tile

There’s no denying that traditional slate when first fitted looks exceptionally pleasing on the eye. However, as time goes by it often cracks and loses the visual appeal it once had. Our lightweight tiles are designed to endure; thereby suffering no such problems, even years down the line. These tiles also look exactly like the real thing thanks to their incredible detail; with curves and peaks present throughout the material. An impressive 20 colours are available, including plum, brick red, stone black and pewter grey.

Lightweight Slate

A lightweight tile is all its takes to secure warmth in conservatories, orangeries, porches and other types of home extension. Taking very little time to install, there is also virtually no maintenance. When it comes to colour, you can choose from umber, green, charcoal, red and ebony.

Colours to Complement

Our lightweight tiles can perfectly match existing roof tiles thanks to the choice of 5 colours we have available. Don’t be put off by the word ‘lightweight’ though as it offers a similar level of durability to that of stone-coated steel.

Planning Permission

Generally, most porches are classed as being a ‘permitted development’ and not subject to any planning permission requirements which means that the installation process can be conducted quickly and efficiently. Porches categorised as being a permitted development meet the following guidelines; (1) the internal ground floor area does not exceed three square metres; (2) no part of the porch is more than three metres above ground level; (3) no part of the porch is within two metres of any boundary of the dwelling and the highway.

Building Regulations

Likewise to planning permission, most porches are exempt from building regulations if they are less than thirty square metres in size when measured internally. The main front entrance door between the existing house and new porch much remain in situ, and the new porch must not adversely affect any ramped or levelled access. Needless to say the fitting of glazing and any fixed electrical installations much comply with the relevant section of building regulations.
