UPVC Porches are a stunning entrance to any home

Serving as the gateway into your home, UPVC porches not only help to keep your home warm, but also serve as a practical storage area for the inside as well as a stylish addition to the outside. A well-designed porch that is in-tune with your home is one of the easiest, most affordable investments you can make. Providing everyday functionality, a porch helps keep you home more clutter-free, as well as providing a practical and versatile transfer area between the outside of your home and the inside.

As with any entrance to your home, security is paramount. Serving as an additional barrier to the outside, a well-constructed porch provides exceptional security. Featuring dog bolts, the latest multi-point locking mechanisms, and strong durable finishes, our porches will increase your home’s security. With options including modern materials such as aluminium and UPVC, and a variety of solid roof options, including slate and tile, our porches also provide unrivalled energy efficiency. As a result, your new porch will be as warm and inviting as the rest of your home. In order to reduce how much UPVC porches cost, we strive to offer the lowest UPVC porches prices whilst never compromising on quality or materials.

Lightweight Tile

Lightweight tiles are lighter than traditional roofing materials meaning they are quicker to fit. They are also extremely low maintenance, so this option really is ideal for conservatories, orangeries, porches and extensions alike. The colour range includes ebony, red, umber, green and charcoal and will allow you to create the external look that you desire from your new or refurbished roof.

Lightweight Slate

Lightweight slate is modern equivalent to traditional slate roofing which has timeless appeal. Unlike traditional slate, lightweight slate does not crack or de-laminate. This roof covering is available in a colour palette that includes stone black, pewter grey, plum, brick red, and chestnut brown.

Planning Permission & Building Regulations

Planning Permission

The planning rules for UPVC or Aluminium Porches are applicable to any external door to the dwellinghouse.

Adding a porch to any external door of your home in Gloucestershire & Wiltshire, including the Cotswold, Gloucester, Cheltenham & Swindon is considered to be permitted development, not requiring an application for planning permission, provided:

  • The ground floor area (measured externally) would not exceed three square metres.
  • No part would be more than three metres above ground level (height needs to be measured in the same way as for a house extension).
  • No part of the porch would be within two metres of any boundary of the dwelling house and the highway.

Please note: the permitted development allowances described above apply to houses – not flats, maisonettes or other buildings.

Building Regulations

Building a porch at ground level and under 30 square metres in floor area is normally exempt from the need for building regulation approval. This is provided that glazing and any fixed electrical installations comply with the appropriate sections of building regulations.

For a porch to be exempt from building regulations approval:

  • The front entrance door between the existing house and the new porch must remain in place.
  • If the house has ramped or level access for disabled people, the porch must not adversely affect access.
