Birkenhead Porch Extensions (CH41): If you're on the lookout for ways to improve the look of your home in Birkenhead, a porch extension is a great way to do it without emptying your bank account. One of the most economical and least disruptive home improvement projects that you can do, building a porch can be very effective. A porch will smarten up the main doorway to your property, save some heat loss and give a good first impression to visitors.
The best person to speak with regarding the design and planning or a porch is an experienced builder in Birkenhead. More creative ideas and inspiration can be found by looking online, where the possibilities are endless.
If you decide to bite the bullet and build a porch, you will firstly need to consider your preferred materials for the door, the floor, the walls, the roof, the ceiling and the windows.
It would be as well to also think about furniture, internal design, decoration, storage options and electrical sockets.
Is Planning Permission Necessary for a Porch? You should not need to get planning permission for a porch in Birkenhead as long as the following applies to your case: your dwelling is a house, and not a maisonette, flat or other form of building, no section of the porch is within two metres of any highway or 2 metres from the property boundary on which it is being built, no section of the porch is over 3 metres above ground level, the exterior ground floor area isn't more than 3m2.
Shoot down to your local planning office if you are unclear about any of this. Your chosen Birkenhead porch builder should be willing to liase with the planning office. Always check and double check where planning permission is involved.
Building Regulations: You should not confuse building regulations with planning permission, as the two are completely separate. When any disability access is maintained, the existing external door remains in place and the porch construction is lower than 30m2 and on ground level, building regulations approval will not be required. You'll need to get approval for electrical installations and certain kinds of window in porches.
Benefits: The key benefits of a porch are: enhancing the property's appeal to prospective buyers when you need to sell it, raising the value of the house, providing somewhere to leave muddy boots, hang coats and stand damp umbrellas, giving more character to an otherwise plain doorway, offering a place to park bicycles, lessening heat loss through your front door, additional storage space and making your doorway more secure.
