A beautiful bespoke porch will add value to your home and create instant kerb appeal. Whether you want to declutter your hall or create a warm welcome, a porch is a great investment.
Step into your porch out of the rain or the glare of the sun and you’ll enjoy all the benefits of an enlarged living space. An Otter Windows porch also adds a useful extra layer of security, featuring the same high quality multi-point locking technology that we use in our composite doors for your peace of mind.
Our bespoke manufacturing process means that we can replicate your perfect porch in our workshop and then install on-site. Any number of options are available including cost-effective polycarbonate roofs, glass roofs that maximise the natural light and tiled roofs that provide the best energy efficiency. In terms of size you can keep your porch snug and welcoming or design enough room to take a seat and put on your shoes or wipe down a muddy dog after a walk.
A brick conservatory will integrate seamlessly with your existing walls and your living space, while a conservatory style porch can provide a sunny reading nook or somewhere to grow your orchids and other house plants. Whatever design choices you make, we can create the perfect porch in a wide variety of styles and finishes from traditional wood grain to a pop of show-stopping colour.

Do porches need foundations?
Like a conservatory or another extension to your home, your porch is only as good as the foundation it’s built on. Once you’ve decided on the style of porch you’re looking for, one of our specialist surveyors will visit your home to check the location of your porch and your soil type. These factors decide the size and the depth of the foundations you need to ensure that your porch is solid and long lasting.
How big can a porch be without needing planning permission?
Under permitted development rights you can create a good sized porch as long as you remain within the following parameters:
- Your porch must be no larger than three metres squared
- The front of your porch must be at least two metres from the property boundary and the highway
- The porch cannot be taller than three metres
It’s always best to contact your local planning department before you start any home improvements to check planning permission is not required.
Does adding a porch add value to your home?
That largely depends on the function of your porch. If it adds extra living space to your home then it’s likely to add value. If it’s purely decorative then it may add kerb appeal that attracts potential buyers but is unlikely to add to the market value. An Otter Windows porch fitted with one of our solid multi-point locking doors is attractive to buyers and improves your quality of life by adding an extra layer of security to your home.
What is a good size for a porch?
To stay within permitted development rights, make sure your porch is no bigger than three meters squared. Otherwise the best size for your porch depends on what you intend to use it for. A porch that’s under 2 metres in length will give you plenty of space to dump bulky coats and muddy wellies. If you need a bench for older and younger members of the family to sit and put their shoes on, consider a porch that’s wider than it is long. If you’re finding it hard to decide, contact us today and our experts will be happy to help.

They are built specifically for the more exposed areas of corrosion, such as coastal environments to give you worry free performance beyond your guarantee. We believe spending more on components is worth every penny, and sets us apart from our competitors.
State of the art fabrication for best quality
We have invested millions of pounds into one of the most state of the art manufacturing facilities in the UK.

Superior energy efficiency
Our ‘A’ rated energy efficient and triple glazed windows are tested by the BFRC, which will save you money on your heating bills. By law your windows and doors have to meet strict thermal performance regulations but you can be rest assured that our products exceed current requirements.
Energy saving is incredibly important and so is keeping your fuel bills down. We are continuously looking for ways to make our homes energy efficient and one way is to choose new PVCu windows and doors. Not only will they help to keep your home warmer, they will reduce your energy loss.
Don’t just take our word for it!
Our suppliers conform to strictly controlled and independently monitored Quality Management Systems such as ISO 9001, to ensure that everything is done correctly and according to best practise.
Our windows are tested independently by British Standards for security, weather tightness and strength performance. This means that periodically, we have to send them to independent test houses, in order to be tested to destruction.
These are just some of the many standards the products in our vast range conform to. Needless to say we take the quality of our products very seriously indeed.
