Our Entrance Porch Kit Designer

Our gallery is stocked with pictures taken across the UK and the Channel Islands, showing our customers exactly what they could soon be getting for their own homes. If you take a look through the porch ideas and designs we’ve got on display here, you may just find the one which offers everything you’re looking for.

You may even come across a design that you like, but you also know won’t be completely right for your property unless a few modifications are made first. For example, you might think a high brick plinth design looks better with mullions, or you might decide that an oak framed canopy will lend a touch of classical charm to your townhouse, but a straight braced front truss offers it a modern twist. In any and all cases, our product builder will be ready and waiting on every page.

This quick, clever porch designer is completely free and is available on every product page on our website. So, whenever you’re ready to decide on the best front porch design for your property, nothing is stopping you from getting started!

How We’ll Prime Your Entrance Porch for Easy Assembly

To make sure our porch kits are ready for a fast, efficient assembly and installation, we’ll prepare them using a series of traditional jointing techniques. This involves crafting the frames so they’ll slot neatly together, offering anyone with some previous DIY experience the quick build project they’ve been looking for.

Each porch kit will come with its own easy-to-follow instruction manual, and we always make planning drawings available on request.

Will Your Entrance Porch Require Planning Permission?

You should be happy to note that, in most cases, our porches won’t need planning permission or Building Regulation Approval. However, this may change depending on several different factors, including the size of the porch you’re building.

To avoid the hassle and delays involved in applying, check if your porch needs planning permission here.

Entrance Porch Ideas in the UK

When you’re building a porch for your property, you may have some ideas in mind for what you’d like to do with it. After all, a large oak framed porch can offer more than just a grand entrance to your home, while a small canopy can be dual purpose by sheltering your doorway from the rain and offering your home that little touch of extra charm. But there are even more porch ideas available to improve their look and use:

  • You might decide to fit hooks for coats, or place a rack for shoes inside a large covered porch
  • You can install seating in your design, to offer guests a place to rest a moment and take off their shoes before entering your home
  • You may fit lighting into the roof of a design, either for decoration or security purposes
  • You might put potted plants or garden statues around the porch, offering decoration to the entryway
  • You’ll have the freedom to paint your porch as you see fit, letting you blend the installation into the rest of your house design and style
  • You can use the porch as a safe space for couriers to leave packages

Why Choose an Entrance Porch Kit from Us?

We love what we do, and we’re happy to say that customers across the UK are just as thrilled with the results of our work as we are with manufacturing. We’ve been the first choice for homeowners all over the country, whenever they’ve been looking for their perfect oak porch, and we think we might be the firm for you as well.

Below, we’ve listed just a few of the reasons we think our oak and timber frame porches are ideal for your exterior decor:

We Sustainably Source Products: Everything kit we produce has been made from the highest quality green oak and Douglas-fir timber we have available. The wood is cultivated on a specially designated site in France, and three trees will be planted in the place of every tree we use. This keeps our work sustainable and ensures we can offer our customers stunning porch kits for years to come.
Expert Timber Grading: Our team of master carpenters will check each piece of timber when it arrives on our site, ensuring it’s free of flaws or faults which could affect structural integrity. If any weak pieces are found, we’ll make sure they are responsibly recycled.
Precision Manufacturing: We use state-of-the-art technology to ensure precise and accurate cutting when we make our frames. 
A Q-Mark Certified Process: Everything we do is carried out to the standards set by BM TRADA. This certification panel is considered the strictest in the UK and is held in the highest esteem. As such, you may rest assured that your porch kit has been made to industry standards and nothing less.


We supply a wide range of porch styles all across the UK.

Our Porch Prices

How much our porches cost will all depend on what our individual customers need for their home’s exterior. For example, the size of the porch might play a part in determining the cost, as will the design and style elements. Because of this, we cannot offer set prices for most of our collection and will instead quote the cost of your porch kit to you individually.

However, we also understand that you may have been hoping to plan any porch prices offered into your budget. To make sure you can do this, we’ll calculate the cost of your porch carefully with you, so you can see exactly where your money is going in your ordered design. We are also proud to be price competitive, so if you’re offered another quote for a product of similar quality, we’ll be happy to match it.
