Why Porches are Important to Properties
Having a porch installed on your property is one type of extension which doesn’t require planning permission plus they are quite easy to design.
While a porch is certainly a smaller type of home extension, it also has plenty of benefits.

Three Benefits of a Brand New Porch
Porches are usually located directly in front of the main front entrance of houses. Here are three key reasons, besides aesthetics, to add a porch to your home.
1. Extra Space – Extra space is something we are all very keen to find in our homes, with porches giving you a useful space to hang garments or space to store shoes. Also, if your gas or electricity meter is situated near your door, the porch will enclose it and keep the area looking tidy.
2. More Defence Against Intruders – Having a good quality uPVC or composite door installed means fewer burglars will risk trying to get into your home. Porches also offer the same multi-point locks as front doors, meaning it would take a long time to break through both.
3. Improve Energy Efficiency – A porch will help you to improve energy efficiency by preventing heat loss to the outside. When you enter your porch you will be able to close the door then open the door to the house with the warm air indoors retained.
C&W Direct offer porches at competitive prices that are fully built, including all brickwork and a choice of roofs.
