Incredible styling & design

The list of benefits UPVC provides is almost endless; from incredible strength and durability, to lightness and versatility in design. As such, it is a fantastic choice for exterior home improvements. UPVC porches have proven so popular because their clean, crisp lines enable styling that can effortlessly compliment the variety of housing designs found in this area. Providing everyday functionality, a UPVC porch helps keep you home more clutter-free, as well as creating a practical and versatile transfer area between the outside and inside of your home.

 

A porch for all seasons

Offering unrivalled strength and resilience, our UPVC porches are renowned for their durability; making them ideal for the challenging British weather. Never rotting, rusting, fading, or needing repainting, cheap UPVC porches are remarkably low maintenance; often requiring nothing more than a quick wipe with a cloth to look brand new again. Featuring toughened frames that provide exceptional security, these porches are perhaps best known for their incredible energy efficiency. Surpassing the insulation properties of both wood and aluminium, UPVC porches do not conduct heat; thereby preventing heat from leaving your home and cold from entering it.


Security

Porch windows and doors from Wessex Windows can all be specified with the same security features as our standard windows and doors, including: high security hinges and handles; multi-point locking systems; dog bolts; and anti-bump/snap cylinders on doors. Such security features will turn your porch into a useful and safe place to store some of your possessions, without any risk to your family.

Practical

A decent porch can act as the ideal location for storing coats and shoes and what better place to collect your post first thing in the morning. Porches will be a permanent fixture and you will question how you managed to cope without in the first place. Front porches can create a huge visual impact and what better addition to have when you want guests to be greeted by a stylish entrance point.

Cost Effective

Compared to an orangery or conservatory which are more aspiraitonal investments, quite often a porch is more of a functional improvement. Even so, many homeowners with a porch will testify that they now couldn’t live without one, and with the costs of a porch being a fraction of the cost of other home improvements, it is understandable why they are so popular.

Quality tiling solutions…

Both are types of tiling options are lightweight, making them ideal for use on conservatories in particular – and completely weather proof. The 2 options are  lightweight tile which is available in five colour options, and the second is lightweight slate which emulates, to fantastic effect, the look of natural slate

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.

Colours

Available in five colour options (shades of red, grey and brown), the lightweight tiles are designed to match closely with your existing house roof. With exceptional durability, our lightweight tile offers superior performance and all the advantages of stone-coated steel. The lightweight slate has options in grey, black and red, again designed to complement the original building.

Planning Permission & Building Regulations

The planning rules for UPVC or Aluminium Porches are applicable to any external door to the dwelling or house. Adding a porch to any external door of your home in Basingstoke, Fareham, Winchester, Portsmouth & Southampton and throughout Hampshire 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.
