As one of Birmingham’s most experienced window and door companies, Mainstream Windows can help homeowners who wish to add a porch or extension to their properties. The company offers a bespoke design service, covering all aspects of a porch project from design and any planning permission requirements through to final installation.
Every home has its own character and style, so all Mainstream Windows’ front porches are designed to your bespoke requirements, creating the perfect stylish entrance for your home. A canopy or porch can provide protection and shelter from the weather as well as create a decorative feature or focal point that enhances the main entrance of the house.
Porches are considered permitted development, not requiring an application for planning permission, provided conditions are met. The planning rules for porches are applicable to any external door to the dwelling and Mainstream Windows can assist with any necessary liaison with local planners, if required.
Whatever your home needs, Mainstream’s expert team can advise on the construction of your new porch. This can involve a dwarf-wall brick base, low-maintenance Upvc infill panels or using full-height glass for extra light. Porches are also available with polycarbonate, glass or even tiled roofs to suit your specifications.
