Our Bespoke Offerings for Your Cottage Porch
Often, we’ll have customers come to us with ideas already in mind for the porches they want to see installed on their properties. When this happens, we’re more than willing to help them bring these ideas to life. So, if you have any bespoke porch ideas that you’d like to apply to your home, please let us know. We’ll do everything we can to make them a reality.
We Prime Cottage Porches for Easy Assembly
Any timber or oak porch we put together is primed for a quick, simple assembly through a series of traditional jointing techniques. These allow each piece to slot neatly together, so the frame can be built in a short amount of time. This should prove little trouble if you’ve had some experience with DIY building projects before.
Each of our porch kits come with their own instruction manual and we are happy to provide planning drawings upon request.
Cottage Porch Ideas in the UK
Apart from offering any cottage a timeless style, porches can also provide a space with a number of extra uses and possibilities. We also understand you may not have had time to think about all of these yet. So, to get you started, we’ve provided a shortlist of ideas and uses you can apply to your full porch or porch canopy once it’s been installed:
- A new front porch, if you decide on a fully enclosed product, can make a great place for hanging up coats and storing shoes
- Even if you’ve opted for a partially open front porch design, you can still use it as a safe storage space for parcels and packages
- No matter if you have a front or back porch, you can install lighting for decoration and security
- A porch can be decorated with statues and potted plants, becoming part of your garden space as well as your home
- You may decide to paint a timber or oak porch to suit your home’s aesthetics, though if you have a stone cottage the original colour of the beams should complement the aesthetic as well
- Installing a bench inside your porch provides you with a place to sit and admire the view of your garden
Our Product Builder
If you’re in need of some more inspiration before you begin work on the perfect oak porch for your cottage, you may wish to start by exploring our gallery. Here, we have a wide range of images taken across the UK and the Channel Islands, showing you the designs we can create and giving you a good idea of what you might soon be installing yourself.
You may also spot some full porch ideas or porch canopy designs that you’d like for your property, but know they won’t quite fit the aesthetics of your home until you’ve made a few modifications. For example, you may have a stone cottage out in the countryside and want a high brick plinth porch with mullions, to keep with the rustic look. Alternatively, you might have a slightly more modern build in the middle of a town and want a King Post truss to offer a stylish twist.
This is where we can step in with our product builder. This fast, clever online tool is completely free and can show you every feature available with our back and front porch designs. You can see exactly how the frame will look before it’s even been put together, giving you the chance to decide on your ideal kit before we begin the manufacture.
Why Choose Us?
We love what we do and we want to provide our customers with the highest quality porches, whether they have a redbrick townhouse or a country cottage. Customers across the country have been delighted by the results of our kits, and there are many reasons they chose us for their wooden porch in the first place.
Below, we’ve added just some of the reasons we think we’re the firm to provide your country cottage with its own porch or canopy:
We Sustainably Source Our Products: Everything we make is manufactured from the finest green oak and Douglas-fir we have available to us. This is all taken from one specially designated site in France, where three new trees will be planted in the place of everyone we use.
A Thorough Timber Grading Process: We have a team of highly trained and skilled carpenters and timber graders working on our site. They’ll check every piece of wood that comes to us, looking for flaws, warps, or faults which may result in the loss of structural integrity. If any timber pieces can’t be used, we’ll ensure they are responsibly recycled instead.
Precision Cutting and Manufacture: Our timber and oak framed products are all cut using the same efficient, highly accurate machines and technology. This ensures each piece is cut precisely and rules out human error, so your porch parts will always fit together exactly as intended.
Q-Mark Certified Work: The work we carry out is all done under the guidelines and regulations set by BM TRADA, one of the UK’s strictest and most respected certification panels. This means you are always guaranteed a product that’s been made to industry standards.
Create a Timeless Look for any Town or Country Cottage
If you’ve been searching for the perfect way to add curb appeal to a cottage in the heart of your town, or even if you have an older stone cottage in the country that needs improving while keeping to its original aesthetics, The Porch Specialist is here to help.
We can craft a kit that offers a classical style to any house front, and you’ll be able to complete it on your own schedule as soon as the work has been signed off and delivered. You’ll even save yourself time and money that would have been spent on third party labour.
Contact our team today and we’ll be ready and waiting to offer any large or small cottage a porch which completes its quaint appeal.
