Bath Porch Extensions (BA1): If you don't want to break the bank but are still eager to enhance the look of your home in Bath, one splendid way is to build a porch extension. In fact building a porch is among the most economical and least disruptive home improvement projects you can carry out. Apart from beautifying the main entrance to your property, a porch has the added benefit of saving you some heat loss.
You'll need an expert builder in Bath to help you with the design and planning or your porch. You can also get a wealth of inspiration and information for porches online.
The materials to be used for the floor, the walls, the roof, the windows, the ceiling and the door should be considered before pressing ahead with your porch.
At this stage you might also think about internal design, furniture, decoration, storage options and electrics.
Do I Need Planning Permission to Build a Porch? You shouldn't need to get planning permission for a porch in Bath as long as the following applies to your case: no portion of the porch is more than 3m above ground level, your residence is a house, not a maisonette, flat or other kind of building, the external ground floor area is not over 3m2, no portion of the porch construction is within 2m of any road or two metres from the property boundary on which it is being built.
However, you should always speak to your local planning office before proceeding. Your preferred Bath porch builder will be happy to help you with this procedure. To be safe rather than sorry, check!
Building Regulations Relating to Porches: You should note that planning permission is different to building regulations approval. Where porches are concerned you WILL need to have building regulations approval unless the present exterior door is not taken out, the porch is lower than 30m2 and on ground level and all disability access is maintained. Building regulations approval is always required for certain windows and all electrical installations.
The Benefits of a Porch: Having a porch on the front entrance to your home in Bath can have numerous benefits, including: lowering heat loss through your front door, giving more character to a previously plain doorway, providing somewhere to hang coats, stand brollys and leave muddy boots, increasing the value of your house, offering a place to leave bicycles, enhancing the appeal of the property to potential buyers in the event you need to sell, give you a little bit of extra storage space and more security.

Browsing the Internet
Nowadays the vast majority of people in Bath who are hunting for services and tradesmen of any sort tend to "Google it", or in other words do a search for them on the web. The truth is, you more than likely used Yahoo, Google, Bing or Ask to access the webpage that you're checking out at this point. Nevertheless, the 1st page results shown on the major search engines are certainly not always the best ones for your needs.
When looking to find porch extension specialists, most householders in Bath, will enter "porch extensions near me", "porch extension specialist in Bath", "Bath porch extensions" or "porch extensions Bath" into Google or Yahoo and see what appears. Large trade portals like Rated People, My Hammer, Quotatis, Checkatrade, TrustaTrader or Bidvine, and business directories such as Yelp, 3 Best Rated, Yell or Hotfrog will feature highly on the page 1 results, as will purely pay per click (PPC) adverts (usually the four top listings). The actual sites of porch specialists in Bath (if they have one), is likely to be abandoned on page two or three of the search engine listings. So you'll need to delve deeper.
I am not suggesting that you should not make use of the best of the tradesman vetting sites like Rated People or Checkatrade, where you can obtain free quotations, read through reviews and consider client appraisals, insofar as not every single porch specialist in Bath has got his or her own business website.
