When people approach your home you want them to be impressed by what they see. If you feel that something more could be done to the front entrance to really capture the imagination then you really should consider a porch installation. A porch will give your entire residence a whole new visual appeal and add an extra dimension that only a porch can offer. Pennine are specialists when it comes to porches, dealing with every element of the build including the door, windows, roof, electricals, UPVC guttering, internal plastering, drainpipes and decorative panels.

If your new porch design is consistent with the existing entrance on your home then the chances are that it won’t be subject to building regulations. This means that the process of installation can be conducted quickly and efficiently. Our porch designs offer a host of features including high security handles/hinges, dog bolts, anti-bump/snap cylinders and a multi-point locking mechanism, not to mention additional insulation, which as a collective help protect the porch and your home.
Once your new porch is installed you’ll wonder how you ever managed without it. Expect it to be one of the most heavily utilised areas in your home, a place where you regularly store coats, jackets, shoes, and all manner of other items. Because of its positioning it is important that the building is completely energy efficient so that whenever you spend time inside it, however short that time may be, it offers constant welcoming warmth and comfort. The double glazed windows, door and the roof covering on your porch work together to offer additional insulation.
Buying a porch may not be as glamorous as owning a conservatory or orangery but when you factor how affordable it is and how likely you are to utilise it on a daily basis, and the fact that it is usually the focal point of the outside of your home, it’s definitely an investment well worth your money. It can ease the strain on other areas of the house too, so if your utility room is currently being used as a storage point, feel free to transfer the items to the porch and free up space. You’ll be surprised just how spacious everywhere else feels once the porch is up and running.
Our roof tiles share a similar durability to the real thing…
We offer two types of Warm Roof covering; lightweight tile and lightweight slate. Our lightweight tiles come in five colours, whilst our lightweight slate looks virtually identical to that of natural slate thanks to the use of modern materials and design. Both are completely weather-proof and maintenance-free.
There’s no denying that traditional slate when first fitted looks exceptionally pleasing on the eye. However, as time goes by it often cracks and loses the visual appeal it once had. Our lightweight tiles are designed to endure; thereby suffering no such problems, even years down the line. These tiles also look exactly like the real thing thanks to their incredible detail; with curves and peaks present throughout the material. An impressive 20 colours are available, including plum, brick red, stone black and pewter grey.
A lightweight tile is all its takes to secure warmth in conservatories, orangeries, porches and other types of home extension. Taking very little time to install, there is also virtually no maintenance. When it comes to colour, you can choose from umber, green, charcoal, red and ebony.
Colours to Complement
Our lightweight tiles can perfectly match existing roof tiles thanks to the choice of 5 colours we have available. Don’t be put off by the word ‘lightweight’ though as it offers a similar level of durability to that of stone-coated steel.
Most porches are classed as a ‘permitted development’ and therefore won’t require planning permission beforehand which means that installation can get underway immediately and a quick build is assured. For a porch to be considered a ‘permitted development’ it must meet the following criteria: (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.
Your porch will be exempt from building regulations if it measures no more than thirty square metres internally, remains in keeping with the original front entrance and house, and doesn’t have an adverse effect on any levelled or ramped access. The glazing and electrical fittings must also adhere to the building regulations set out.

Featuring toughened frames, strong, reinforced doors and the very latest multi-lock systems, our porches are inaccessible from the outside when locked. A Pennine porch will significantly improve your home’s security and give you lasting peace-of-mind.
