Gateshead Porch Extensions (NE8): If you don't want to break the bank but are still keen to improve the look of your home in Gateshead, one terrific way is to put up a porch extension. Building a porch is one of the most cost-effective and simplest home extensions that you can do. A porch can be both attractive and practical in that it improves the overall look of your house, saves heat and provides additional storage.
To help you with the planning and design of your porch, you'll need to talk to an experienced builder in Gateshead. You'll also get plenty of inspirational and imaginative ideas for porches online.
The first decision that you will have to make, if you decide to proceed with building your porch is what materials to use for the door, the floor, the windows, the roof, the ceiling and the walls.
You should also think about internal design, electric sockets, furniture, storage possibilities and decoration.
Do Porches Need Planning Permission? When building a porch in Gateshead, you shouldn't need planning permission if the porch does not exceed a ground area of 3 square metres, no part of the construction is within 2m of any road or 2m from the boundary of the property, your property is a house, not a maisonette, flat or other form of building, no portion of the porch construction is over 3m above ground level.
If you're uncertain, your local planning office is the place to go for a chat about your porch construction. Your preferred Gateshead porch builder will be happy to help you with this process. To be safe rather than sorry, check!
Building Regulations Relating to Porch Construction: You should not confuse planning permission with building regulations approval, because the two are completely separate. When all current disabled access is preserved, the porch is lower than 30m2 and is at ground level and the external door remains in place, building regulations approval will not be needed. You will need to get building regulations approval for electrical installations and certain types of window in porches.
What are the Benefits of a Porch Extension? The main benefits of a porch extension are: offering a place to park a bike, making your access more secure, providing somewhere to leave muddy shoes, stand wet umbrellas and hang coats, giving extra character to a previously plain doorway, reducing heat loss through your front door, boosting the value of your house, give you a little bit of extra storage space and enhancing the appeal of the property to buyers should you need to sell it.
