UK Porch Extensions (UK): If you would like to improve the look of your home in the UK, but don't have a lot of cash to invest in the project, a porch extension could be the ideal option. Among the easiest and cheapest of all the home extensions, building a porch can also be one of the most beneficial. It is said that first impressions are important and a porch will help to give visitors to your property that good first impression.
To assist you with the design and planning of your porch, you'll need to speak with an experienced builder in the UK. There is also such a lot of useful information online that it would be an error not to go there for some inspiration and imaginative ideas.
If you decide to take the bull by the horns and build a porch, you will need to first consider your preferred materials for the door, the windows, the walls, the ceiling, the roof and the floor.
At this stage you might also think about power sockets, furniture, decoration, storage and internal design.
Is Planning Permission Needed for a Porch? In general, planning permission is not necessary for a porch in the UK on condition that: your property is a house, and not a flat, maisonette or other form of building, no part of the porch is within 2 metres of any road or 2m from the boundary of the property on which it is being built, the construction doesn't exceed a ground area of 3m2, no part of the porch construction is more than 3m above ground level.
