Cheltenham Porch Extensions (GL50): If you don't want to invest a fortune but are still eager to improve the look of your property in Cheltenham, one smart way is to add a porch extension. In fact building a porch is among the cheapest and least disruptive home improvement projects you can carry out. A porch will beautify the doorway to your house, prevent some heat loss and give a good first impression to visitors.
It would be a wise idea to consult with an established builder in Cheltenham regarding the planning and design of your proposed porch. More creative ideas and inspiration can be found by looking online, where the possibilities are endless.
Before any building work proceeds on your porch you have to consider your preferred materials for the roof, the floor, the ceiling, the walls, the windows and the door.
More factors to think about include: furnishings, decoration, internal design, power sockets and storage possibilities.
Is Planning Permission Necessary for a Porch? At the time of writing this guide, you shouldn't need to apply for planning permission for a porch in Cheltenham if your dwelling is a house, and not a maisonette, flat or other type of building, no section of the construction is within 2 metres from the boundary of the property or within two metres of any road, the exterior ground floor area of the construction is not over 3m2, no part of the porch construction is more than 3m above ground level.
However, you should always double check your local planning office before proceeding. Your chosen Cheltenham porch builder will probably include this liason with the planning office in his quotation. Always check and double check where planning permission is involved.
Building Regulations Relating to Porch Building: Building regulations and planning permission are separate entities and one may be needed where the other isn't. When all current disability access is preserved, the exterior door is not removed and the porch construction is below 30 square metres and on ground level, building regulations approval won't be needed. All electrical installations and certain types of window do need approval.
The Benefits: There are a surprising number of benefits that having a porch brings, including: making your doorway more secure, decreasing heat loss through your front door, enhancing the appeal of the property to buyers in the event you need to put it on the market, boosting the value of your property, providing somewhere to leave muddy boots, hang coats and stand umbrellas, offering somewhere to leave a bicycle, giving more character to a currently plain entrance and give you a little bit of extra storage space.
