Pennine Porches

When people approach your home you want them to be impressed by what they see. If you feel that something more could be done to the front entrance to really capture the imagination then you really should consider a porch installation. A porch will give your entire residence a whole new visual appeal and add an extra dimension that only a porch can offer. Pennine are specialists when it comes to porches, dealing with every element of the build including the door, windows, roof, electricals, UPVC guttering, internal plastering, drainpipes and decorative panels.

    If the intended porch design is sympathetic to the existing entrance in its current form then the chances are that it won’t be subject to building regulations meaning that the process of installation can be conducted quickly and efficiently. Each porch contains a host of features including high security handles/hinges, dog bolts, anti-bump/snap cylinders and a multi-point locking mechanism, which as a collective help protect the porch and your home itself from damage.

    Once you have a porch installed you’ll wonder how you ever coped without it. Expect it to be one of the most heavily utilised areas in your home, a place where you regularly store coats, jackets, shoes, and all manner of other items. Because of its positioning it is important that the building is completely energy efficient so that whenever you spend time inside it, however short that time may be, it offers constant warmth and comfort. The double glazed windows, door and the roof covering work together to offer fantastic insulation.

  • Cost Effective

    An investment that's more affordable than you may think...

    Buying a porch may not be as glamorous as owning a conservatory or orangery but when you factor how affordable it is and how likely you are to utilise it on a daily basis, it is investment well worth your money. It can ease the strain on other areas of the house too, so if your utility room is currently being employed as a storage point feel free to transfer the items to the porch and free up space. You’ll be surprised just how spacious everywhere else feels once the porch is up and running.

  • Planning & Building
    Planning permission & building regulations...

    Planning permission & building regulations...

    • Most porches are classed as a ‘permitted development’ and therefore won’t require planning permission beforehand which means that installation can get underway immediately and a quick build is assured. For a porch to be considered a ‘permitted development’ it must meet the following criteria: (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.

    • Your porch will be exempt from building regulations if it measures no more than thirty square metres internally, remains in keeping with the original front entrance and house, and doesn’t have an adverse effect on any levelled or ramped access. The glazing and electrical fittings must also adhere to the building regulations set out.
