Porches, of course, come in all shapes and sizes, so one of your earliest decisions will be what materials to use for the walls, the floor, the windows, the roof, the door and the ceiling.

It would be as well to also think about decoration, storage, furnishings, internal design and the provision of electricity.

Is Planning Permission Necessary for a Porch? When you are building a porch onto the front entrance of your home in Guildford, you shouldn't need planning permission if: the external floor area isn't more than 3m2, your property is a house, not a maisonette, flat or other type of building, no part of the porch construction is over three metres above ground level, no section of the construction is within 2m of any road or 2m from the property boundary on which it is being built.

However, you should always seek the advice of your local planning office before proceeding. Your preferred Guildford porch builder will no doubt help with this procedure. It is always best to check.

Building Regulations: Whether planning permission is required or not, you may still need building regulations approval. Where porches are concerned you WILL need to have building regulations approval unless the porch construction is lower than 30 square metres and on ground level, all current disabled access is retained and the external door is not taken out. Electrical installations and certain types of window will need approval.

The Benefits of a Porch: Putting in a porch can have certain benefits, including: giving character to a previously plain doorstep, boosting the value of the house, more security, extra storage space, providing somewhere to stand wet umbrellas, leave muddy shoes and hang coats, enhancing the property's appeal to potential buyers in the event you need to sell it, offering somewhere to leave bicycles and preventing heat loss through your front door.
