How To Bring Your Porch Into The 21st Century


Porches are the perfect addition to your home, as they add that extra bit of useful space to the property, whilst keeping the weather out. However, they can become dated. If you have a dated porch which is structurally sound, here is our advice on how to bring it into the 21st Century.

Large Brick Porch

With an entrance porch from Permaframe, you can bring instant character to any property. They are all made to measure, creating a stylish and bespoke entrance to your home. You can trust us to take care of whatever your home needs, from base building and brickwork through to fitting the door, windows, decorative panels and roof. If you have an older property, with older brick work, then there’s no need to worry. We’ll even match your existing brickwork and finish things off with guttering, drainpipes, internal plastering and any electrical work required.

It’s worth mentioning that some older properties won’t have the latest security installed. However, if you choose Permaframe, our porches are fitted with dog bolts, a multi-point locking mechanism and a number of anti-bump/snap cylinders, making it close to unbreakable.

Your outdated porch possibly won’t be energy efficient, as the fittings and insulation will have worn down, or have gone completely. This will inevitably be costing you a lot more money than it would be if your porch was correctly insulated. Our porches are extremely energy efficient, something you’ll be thankful for whenever you come in from the cold, wind and rain.

If you’re worried about the cost at this time of year, the money you will save in energy bills in the long term will more than make up for it, making your investment completely worthwhile. It will become one of the regularly utilised areas in the house and can take the burden off other rooms so that they each retain their own individual personalities.
