Head down to your local planning office if you are unclear about any of this. Your preferred Dumfries porch builder will no doubt help with this process. Always check and double check where planning permission is involved.

Building Regulations: Building regulations approval is of course different to planning permission. You won't need building regulations approval if any current disabled access is maintained, the porch is below 30 square metres and on ground level and the existing external door is not removed. Electrical installations and certain kinds of window do need approval.

Benefits: The chief benefits of a porch extension are: boosting the value of the property, additional storage space, giving extra character to a previously plain doorway, enhancing the appeal of the property to prospective buyers if you need to sell, offering a place to park a bike, an extra deterrent to burglars, providing somewhere to stand damp umbrellas, hang coats and leave muddy boots and preventing heat loss through your front door.
