Lincoln Porch Extensions (LN1): One great way to improve the look of your property in Lincoln that doesn't break the bank is to add a porch extension. Of all the possible extension projects, building a porch is one of the most economical and least disruptive. Apart from beautifying the main doorway to your house, a porch has the added benefit of preventing heat loss.
The best person to talk to about the planning and design or a porch is a specialist builder in Lincoln. You could also get some inspiration and imaginative ideas for your porch online, where there's a wealth of information.
Porches, of course, come in all shapes and styles, so one of your earliest decisions will be what materials to use for the ceiling, the floor, the windows, the door, the walls and the roof.
You should also be thinking about internal design, decoration, power sockets, furniture and storage options at this point.
Do I Require Planning Permission for a Porch? You probably won't need planning permission to build a porch on the front entrance to your home in Lincoln if: no element of the construction is within two metres from the boundary of the property on which it is being built or within 2m of any road, the external floor area of the porch is not over three square metres, your property is a house, and not a maisonette, flat or other form of building, no element of the porch is over three metres above ground level.
Your local planning office is the place to head for if you are the slightest bit unsure about the need for planning permission. Your chosen Lincoln porch builder will no doubt help with this process. Always check and double check where planning permission is involved.
Building Regulations: You should not confuse building regulations with planning permission, since the 2 are completely separate. Where porches are involved you WILL need to get building regulations approval unless the porch area is less than 30 square metres and is at ground level, any current disabled access is retained and the external door remains in place. You will have to get approval for all electrical installations and certain kinds of window in porches.
What are the Benefits of a Porch? Putting in a porch can have certain benefits, including: boosting the overall value of your house, extra storage space, providing somewhere to leave muddy shoes, stand wet umbrellas and hang coats, enhancing the appeal of the property to buyers when you need to sell it, giving character to an otherwise plain entrance, more security, offering somewhere to leave a bicycle and cutting down heat loss through your front door.
