One of the first things that you'll need to consider if you choose to take the plunge and build a porch is what materials you'd prefer to use for the ceiling, the roof, the walls, the door, the windows and the floor.

You should also be thinking about power sockets, furnishings, storage possibilities, internal design and decoration at this stage.

Do I Need Planning Permission to Build a Porch? When you are building a porch onto the front entrance of your home in Margate, you should not need planning permission if: your property is a house, not a maisonette, flat or other form of building, the construction does not exceed a ground area of 3 square metres, no element of the construction is within two metres of any highway or 2 metres from the boundary of the property, no section of the porch is over 3 metres above ground level.

If you are uncertain, your local planning office is the place to go for a chat about your porch construction. Your preferred Margate porch builder will likely include this liason with the planning office in his quote. If in doubt, check!

Building Regulations: You should remember that building regulations and planning permission are two different things. If your project means that any current disability access is retained, the porch area is less than 30 square metres and is at ground level and the existing exterior door is not taken out, you should not need building regulations approval. You'll need to get building regulations approval for electrical installations and certain types of window in porches.

The Benefits of a Porch Extension: The main benefits of a porch extension are: extra storage space, making your entrance more secure, offering somewhere to park bicycles, preventing heat loss through your front door, boosting the value of the property, giving character to a currently plain entrance, enhancing the property's appeal to potential buyers in the event you need to put it on the market and providing somewhere to hang coats, stand wet umbrellas and leave muddy boots.
