Kingston upon Thames Porch Extensions (KT1): If you'd like to enhance the appearance of your home in Kingston upon Thames, but don't have a ton of cash to spare for the project, a porch extension could be a good option. Building a porch is one of the most economical and least disruptive extension projects that you can do. Apart from saving heat loss and smartening up the doorway to your house, a porch also gives a good first impression to buyers when you come to sell.
Any professional builder in Kingston upon Thames, should be able to help you with ideas, plans and designs for porches. You can also get a wealth of information and imaginative ideas for porches online.
One of the first things that you will need to consider if you decide to start the ball rolling and build a porch is what materials you would prefer to use for the windows, the ceiling, the walls, the floor, the roof and the door.
Other things to think about are storage, power sockets, furnishings, internal design and decoration.
Is Planning Permission Necessary for a Porch? As the law stands at the time of writing you do not require planning permission to build a porch in Kingston upon Thames if the porch does not exceed a ground area of 3m2, no element of the construction is within 2m of any highway or two metres from the boundary of the property, your residence is a house, not a flat, maisonette or other type of building, no component of the porch construction is over 3m above ground level.
Head down to your local planning office if you are unsure about any of this. Ask your preferred Kingston upon Thames porch builder to help you out with this process. Always check and double check where planning permission is involved.
Building Regulations: You should not confuse planning permission with building regulations, as the two are completely separate. Building regulations approval shouldn't be needed if all current disability access is preserved, the external door stays in place and the porch construction is lower than 30 square metres and is at ground level. Building regulations approval is always needed for certain windows and all electrical installations.
