Kendal Porch Extensions (LA9): If you don't want to spend a fortune but are still keen to improve the appearance of your property in Kendal, one good way is to add a porch extension. Building a porch can have a startling effect on the look of your home, while being one of the simplest and most affordable projects you can undertake. They say first impressions are important and a porch can certainly help to give visitors to your property a good first impression.
For the design and planning of a porch it is best to speak with a competent builder in Kendal. You can also get a wealth of information and creative ideas for porches on the internet.
Porches, of course, come in all shapes and sizes, so one of your very first decisions will be what materials to use for the door, the walls, the roof, the ceiling, the windows and the floor.
At this stage you might also think about electrical sockets, decoration, furniture, internal design and storage possibilities.
Do I Require Planning Permission to Build a Porch? At the time of writing this guide, you shouldn't need to apply for planning permission for a porch in Kendal if no portion of the porch construction is more than 3 metres above ground level, no section of the porch is within 2m of any highway or two metres from the boundary of the property, your dwelling is a house, and not a maisonette, flat or other kind of building, the external floor area is not more than three square metres.
Your local planning office is the place to head for if you are the slightest bit unsure about the need for planning permission. Ask your preferred Kendal porch builder to help you out with this process. Be sure, and check!
Building Regulations: Whether or not planning permission is required, you might still need building regulations approval. If your project means that the porch is less than 30m2 and on ground level, any current disability access is maintained and the present external door is not removed, you will not need building regulations approval. Building regulations approval is invariably required for electrical installations and certain windows.
What are the Benefits of a Porch Extension? There are a surprising number of benefits that having a porch brings, including: giving character to an otherwise plain entrance, offering a place to park bicycles, providing somewhere to hang coats, leave muddy boots and stand wet umbrellas, increasing the overall value of the property, more security, enhancing the appeal of the property to buyers if you need to put it on the market, lessening heat loss through your front door and give you a bit more storage space.
