Porches from Orion Windows...

Your home will already have its own distinctive personality and a porch installation should never hinder it, only add to it. That’s why Orion Windows always makes a serious effort to create a new front entrance that fits in seamlessly with the existing character, whilst still giving it a whole new dimension. Every aspect of the porch will be dealt with in minute detail, everything from the base building, to the door itself, windows, decorative panels and roof. All electrical requirements will also be dealt with efficiently and any necessary UPVC guttering, drainpipes and internal plastering. Your porch will be in very safe hands.

    Most porches won’t be subject to building regulations as long as it remains consistent with the existing entrance, otherwise there could be a delay whilst such obligations are formally dealt with. It will act as another secure barrier to your home as it includes high security hinges and handles, a multi-point locking mechanism, dog bolts and a series of anti-bump/snap cylinders. This will make it near impossible to break through the windows and doors.

    From a practical perspective a porch makes perfect sense...

    The usefulness of a porch cannot be underestimated. Time and time again upon entering and exiting your home you will become accustomed to utilising it for storing all manner of clothing such as jackets, coats and footwear. Because of the inevitable frequent usage it needs to be properly energy efficient and there’s no question that will be the case as the double glazed windows and doors will cut out heat loss, as will the roof covering fitted. Its warmth will most be appreciated any time you dash into the house to seek shelter from the cold.

  • Cost Effective

    An inexpensive addition to your home...

    A porch may not be held in quite the same esteem as a conservatory or orangery but it offers a similar level of usefulness in a very different way. It will become an invaluable addition that you’re certain to get an extensive amount of use out of every single day. Its presence will prevent other areas of the house from becoming overburdened with belongings so that they’re never left feeling cramped and short on space. Your porch can take the necessary strain instead.

  • Planning & Building

    Planning permission & building regulations...

    • Planning permission is very rarely required for porches as most are classed as being a ‘permitted development’. If that proves to be the case when buying yours then you will be pleased to know that it can fitted very quickly indeed. A porch is categorised a ‘permitted development’ if it adheres to the following: (1) the internal ground floor area does not exceed three square metres; (2) no part of the porch is more than three metres above ground level; (3) no part of the porch is within two metres of any boundary of the dwelling and the highway.

    • Porches that measure thirty square metres internally are usually exempt from building regulations so long as it also doesn’t adversely affected any ramped or levelled access and the front entrance stays in situ between the porch and house. Further obligations are that the glazing and electrical fittings comply with the building regulations too.
