Custom-made porches will create the perfect entrance to your home.

You can bring instant character to your home when you have a Porch placed at the front of your property. 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. They also come in handy when you want to add space as they can often be used as somewhere you and the rest of the family can hang up their coats or place their shoes when they enter the home. If your Porch needs any sort of planning permission, Clearview can assist with such matters. A Porch really is essential when you add an abundance of flair to your property.

    Safety, security and total peace of mind...

    For a porch to remain exempt from building regulations the original front entrance door to the house must remain in situ, but that should not mean that the security of the porch itself is overlooked. Our porch windows and doors 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, as well as giving you the confidence to have ornaments, pictures and other decorations on display.

    Practicle addition to your home...

    Porches are regularly used as a placed for comers and go-ers to take off and put on their shoes, coats and other outdoor clothing, particularly in the winter months. Therefore, in order for a porch to serve its purpose properly, it must be as warm and thermally efficient as the main building. This is easily achievable by incorporating modern double glazed windows, doors and roofing systems so the porch will become a much welcomed shelter if the weather has taken a turn for the worse while you’re out and about.

  • Very much the unsung hero...

    Very much the unsung hero...

    Quite often a porch is more of a functional improvement to the home, rather than an aspirational investment such as an orangery or conservatory. Even so, many homeowners with a porch will testify that they now couldn’t live without one, such is its usefulness for hanging coats, storing shoes and generally enabling them to have a clean and clutter-free home. A porch with UPVC windows and doors, and a lightweight Warm Roof, is probably much more affordable than you think and is almost a must-have for properties that house large families and welcome regular guests.

  • Planning permission & building regulations...

    Planning permission & building regulations...

    • The majority of porches are considered as a ‘permitted development’ and do not require planning permission. This means that your project can likely be started and finished much quicker that would be the case if a planning application had to be submitted. Porches that will be added to a house will be a permitted development so long as (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.

    • In the same ways that porches often don’t need planning permission, they are commonly exempt from building regulations too, providing that they are less than thirty square metres in size, 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.
