Traditionally Handcrafted Porches
All of our products are handcrafted from sustainably sourced green oak, with three new trees being planted for every one we use in our work. When this wood reaches our site, it is inspected thoroughly by our professional carpenters and timber graders, who will make sure that the pieces have no flaws or faults which could affect the structural integrity of a kit. Only the strongest materials available go into our products, while the rest will be responsibly recycled instead.
Why Choose a Wooden Porch Kit?
Many customers come to us not realising that there are a number of benefits to choosing a wooden porch, rather than one made from another material. As experts in this industry, we are happy to be able to explain the advantages our products have.
The first benefit to be found is that oak is an extremely diverse material and excellent for use in construction. You can pair it with any architectural style of existing property, while adding a newfound charm. You can also be adding value, should you ever choose to sell your home. Our products are designed to be aesthetically pleasing, as well as easy to build, so you are certain to find something you love when you browse our selection.
Oak will also adapt to most environments it is placed in, so it has a greater potential to remain strong against the elements. This is compared to other materials such as brick, concrete or uPVC. Because of this, you should also find oak easier to maintain than other materials, and the only significant difference you should notice over time is the wood growing darker.
Porches made from oak are also cheaper to build than porches made from other materials. This is because they require fewer material components, a smaller workforce to put a kit together and less time for the installation to be fully complete. With an oak porch, you will not only have what you want in a shorter amount of time, you will also have it at a fraction of the price!
We Offer Bespoke Porch Kits
If you already have a design in mind for what you would like when you come to us, we will be happy to help you put it together. By choosing to use our bespoke design service, you will have the opportunity to upload the plans for your dream porch to our site and our designers and carpenters will create it for you.
If you would like something based on one of the porches we designed, but with your own adjustments, we can do this, too. Simply take a look at our range and choose a design that you would like to work with as a base. From there, you will be prompted to choose a front elevant, roof pitch and your beam styles, before entering your property’s measurements.
If you feel as though your property may have complicated measurements, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us. We will do everything we can to get you the porch you want, at the size you need.
Oak Porches Are Primed for Easy Assembly
Our products are created using traditional jointing techniques which help make them easy to build. No matter your experience level, you will be able to install your own porch in Dorset whenever you want, when you buy from us. To help as much as we can, we provide an easy-to-follow instruction manual with every kit, and planning drawings are available upon request.
