A porch for all seasons
A porch is much more than a place to shelter from the elements and a space to store your umbrellas. If it’s done well it can really add to your home’s kerb appeal.
As the pictures on this page show, a porch can have a glass roof, like conservatory, or a solid one, it can be brick, block or stone built. Don’t forget all the glazing options too.
But before you start thinking about style, the most important question is how do you want to use the porch?
Whether it’s a space for storing wellies and coats or a grand entrance to really make your property stand out. Like any addition to your home, it’s got to work for your lifestyle as well as suit the architecture of your home.
Without doubt, a Securahome porch helps keep out the draughts which means it has a positive impact on the warmth of your home. This in turn will help keep energy bills down.
Porches also add an extra layer of security and will help deter any intruders. Doors come with multi-locking mechanisms for security, toughened glass and double-glazed units. All of this gives you an extra level of reassurance that your home and belongings are safe.
When it comes to styles, this is where our design team come into their own. We can build a porch that seamlessly adds to your home. It will be as if it’s always been there or we can create a standout feature for a truly grand entrance.
Remember the windows and doors are the standout feature of a porch and need to be chosen carefully. For a modern home UPVC offers minimal maintenance and a huge amount of flexibility in terms of style and finishes.
From classic white to oak through to solid and grained colours, UPVC is a really popular choice.
For a strikingly modern look, aluminium glazing offers slim frames and can be any RAL colour. Timber on the other hand offers a traditional look that suits period properties.
