Porches

Half_brick_and_UPVC_Gable_front_with_leaded_glassA porch is a cost effective and enjoyable way to add light and space to your home. And - because most porches are exempt from mainstream Building Regulations and Planning permissions - they can be bought and installed with the minimum of fuss.

 

 

 

Every home has its own character and style, so all our porches are individually designed and made to measure, which means you can create the perfect stylish entrance for your home. You'll benefit from the extra space inside your home whilst keeping the weather out.

 

 

 

Double_hip_with_leaded_glassWhatever your home needs Mercury Home Improvements take care of everything, from base building and brickwork through to fitting the door, windows, decorative panels and roof. We’ll even match your existing brickwork and finish things off with UPVC guttering, drainpipes, internal plastering and any electrical work required. Manufactured to the highest standards using UPVC, which is wipe-clean and never needs repainting?

 

 

 

Planning permission may be required, don’t worry, as all double glazing and conservatory companies will automatically apply for this should it be required.Half_brick_UPVC_gable_front

 

Listed below are the conditions that will attract planning permission. Porches of size (measured externally) of more than 3 square meters.

 

Porches higher than 3 meters above ground level. Porches less than 2 meters away from the boundary of a house or highway which includes all public roads, footpaths, bridle ways, byways, listed buildings and conservation areas.

 

So now you know what the regulations are, and by the way, building regulations are also a requirement, but don’t worry it just means that the porch must be built to comply with current regulations which are good for you as the job will be inspected by a building control officer to ensure it being built correctly.
