Porches by Ecoseal

A porch by Ecoseal will create a practical and stylish entrance to your home whilst protecting you from everything the weather has to throw at you.  The extra space will come in handy for boots and brollies, hanging your coats or perhaps to include a storage cupboard.

Ecoseal utilises its window and door range to build purpose-designed porches in both PVCu and hardwood to suit your home.  Porch roofs can be constructed traditionally with timber roof rafters and tiles, from GRP (Glass Reinforced Polyester) or in a similar way to conservatory roofs, with either polycarbonate or glass.

Building work is constructed according to the specification for conservatory bases and the walls to your porch can be a combination of brickwork and either solid PVCu or glazed panels.

Planning Permission

Planning rules for porches apply to every external door of your home they are built over.  Adding a porch is considered to be ‘permitted development’, that is, not requiring an application for planning permission, provided: -
  • The ground floor area (measured externally) would not exceed three square metres.
  • No part of the porch would be more than three metres above ground level.
  • No part of the porch would be within two metres of any boundary, whether of the dwelling house or the highway.
Building Regulations

Building a porch at ground level and less than thirty square metres in internal floor area is normally exempt from the need for building regulation approval, provided that glazing and fixed electrical installations comply with the appropriate section of building regulations.
For a porch to be exempt from building regulations approval: -
  • The front entrance door between the house and the porch must remain in place.
  • The house must have a ramped or level access for disabled use and the porch must not adversely affect access to the house.
