Extend Your Front Entrance With A Porch

Growing your home doesn’t necessarily have to involve adding a conservatory or converting the loft as you could always integrate a porch into your entranceway.

Entrance Porch in UPVC Rosewood

UPVC or aluminium porches can come in various sizes and it’s largely stress-free getting one as most porches are considered to be a “permitted development” which avoids the need for planning permission or building regulations approval. To comply with planning permission laws they must also measure less than thirty square metres internally, have no adverse effect on any ramped or levelled access, complement the original entrance and include the right sort of glazed and electrical fittings.

When you browse the Gallery section of our Porches page you will see that Clearview has been responsible for the fitting and installation of countless expansive porches. The extra space they generate is just one of their many selling points:


The visual impact a porch has on your entranceway will be extremely profound and give the house new-found kerb appeal. Any finish you have applied to the UPVC or aluminium frames will prove striking and there are numerous enhancements that can be included in the glazing used to accentuate its presence.


None of us want to be victim of a home burglary, so it needs to be fully protected against the ongoing threat of burglary. Putting a porch in place will act as a deterrent to thieves as it possesses very resilient frames and includes dog bolts, a multi-point locking system and a number of anti-bump/snap cylinders.


Many hallways feel draughty and it’s because their respective front door is incapable of keeping the weather out. Cold air will permanently shut out once a patio installation has been included as thermal efficiency will be vastly improved, keeping hallways warm and comfortable in all types of weather.


Conservatories and orangeries obviously provide a far greater volume of spaciousness, but they’re a much costlier investment than porches which are very affordable. The money spent on them will go a very long way and prove a drop in the ocean when you consider the various qualities that they supply. Don’t be at all surprised if they also increase the resale price of your property as they often do.

There are plenty porches at Clearview
