The Styling & Strength of Aluminium Porches

Modern porches offer numerous benefits. Creating a fantastic entrance into your home, porches will help to ensure your home stays warm as well as provide a practical and versatile storage area for outdoor clothing and shoes. Of the many modern materials now available for external home improvements, aluminium remains one of the most popular. This is because aluminium offers unrivalled strength and durability, whilst also being incredibly light-weight. This means that despite aluminium being incredibly strong, aluminium frames are much sleeker than those of other materials; allowing for even greater designs.


A Porch for all Seasons

Of the many advantages aluminium offers, it is perhaps its durability that most people are attracted to. Able to withstand all weather types, our range of aluminium porches are designed to remain thermally efficient all year round. Furthermore, thanks to the use of an 11-stage painting process, our aluminium porches are guaranteed to remain looking brand new for years to come. As such, aluminium porches are a great low cost way of improving your home both on the inside and on the outside.


Your porch installation may be subject to building regulations to ensure that it remains in keeping with your existing house layout. If permission is needed and granted then there’s very little else for you to worry about as our porches are incredibly secure and will help look after your home. All the secure features you would expect of a contemporary window and door such as multi-point locking systems, security hinges and handles, dog bolts etc. are all included in the final porch design. This means that you can fill it full of any important belongings, ornaments, or whatever else it is that you want to keep inside, without worrying about their welfare.


Porches get utilised in all manner of ways by homeowners and the people who live with them. They’re particularly handy for storing any coats and jackets you have, umbrellas, shoes, and a host of other personal belongings, which is why it is important that it offers the same level of energy efficiency as the rest of the property. We ensure that they do by equipping them with double glazed windows and thermally efficient doors and roofing systems to prevent them from every going cold.

Cost Effective

There’s no doubt that a porch attached to your home can enhance its overall outlook but that’s rarely what motivates someone to invest in one. It’s more because it gives you an additional area where you can safely store any personal items that may presently be taking up essential space inside your home, helping you reduce clutter. Large families and those who regularly invite people around will find a porch to be particularly useful and you’d be surprised at just how affordable a porch installation can be.

Our tiles have a strength and toughness to them that exceeds the expectations…

We offer two types of Warm Roof covering, lightweight tile and lightweight slate. Our lightweight tiles come in five varied colours, whilst our lightweight slate looks virtually identical to natural slate such is the amount of time and effort put into its production. Both are completely weather-proof and maintenance-free.

Lightweight Tile

There’s no denying that traditional slate when first fitted looks exceptionally pleasing on the eye, but as time goes by, it often cracks and loses the visual appeal it once had. Our lightweight is designed to endure and suffers with no such problems, even years down the line. It also looks exactly like the real thing such is the amount of detail put into it, with curves and peaks present throughout the material. An impressive 20 colours are available including plum, brick red, stone black and pewter grey.

Lightweight Slate

A lightweight tile is all its takes to secure warmth in conservatories, orangeries, porches and many other forms of home extension. It takes very little time to install and so far as maintenance is concerned, there’s none required. When it comes to choosing a suitable coloured lightweight tile, you can choose between umber, green, charcoal, red and ebony.

Colours to Complement

Our lightweight tiles will work in perfect symmetry with any existing roof tiles when you select either of the five colour options we have available. Don’t be put off by the word ‘lightweight’ though as it offers a similar level of durability to that of a stone-coated steel.

Planning Permission

Generally, most porches are classed as being a ‘permitted development’ and not subject to any planning permission requirements which means that the installation process can be conducted quickly and efficiently. Porches categorised as being a permitted development meet the following guidelines; (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.

Building Regulations

Likewise to planning permission, most porches are exempt from building regulations if they are less than thirty square metres in size when measured internally. The main front entrance door between the existing house and new porch much remain in situ, and the new porch must not adversely affect any ramped or levelled access. Needless to say the fitting of glazing and any fixed electrical installations much comply with the relevant section of building regulations.
