Porches make a great entrance

A custom-made porch will create the perfect entrance to your home and enhance insulation and security.

Porches are a practical way to increase your hallway...

You can bring instant character to your home when you have a Porch placed at the front of your property. 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. Porches really are essential when you add an abundance of flair to your property.

Open Porch Entrance Design

Porches offer 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. Porches with UPVC windows and UPVC doors, and a lightweight tiled 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.

We can offer a range of roof tile options for your porch...

The lightweight tile we supply for porches is way lighter than a traditional roofing material and needs hardly any maintenance.

Ideal for porch designs with a low-pitched roof, our lightweight slates are a fantastic alternative to a traditional slate roof and have a more timeless look.

In addition to the above roof tiles, we can also install traditionbal slate tiles or traditional concrete roof tiles to ensure your porch roof matches your current home.

Aluminium finishes are of the highest quality, and are fade resistant...

The 11-stage powder coating process that contemporary Aluminium is subject to, induces strong paint adhesions and results in a true colour which is sheer quality to the look and touch.

Similarly contemporary Aluminium woodgrain finishes benefit from a unique process known as sublimation which results in Walnut, Rosewood or Oak appearances which are utterly convincing and second only to real wood itself.
