What is a Green Oak Porch?
A green oak porch is a type of porch that is designed and assembled using timber (oak) as its primary material. Unlike other porch materials (such as PVC, brick, granite etc), green oak allows for a timeless design and is one of the most eco-friendly materials on the market.
Additionally, our green oak porches come in easy-to-assemble kits, meaning they’re perfect for novice DIYers, experienced carpenters and tradesmen.

Why Buy a Green Oak Porch Kit?
There are a number of reasons why we choose to source, stock and build with green oak. First, green oak is durable, versatile and long-lasting, meaning you’re getting a good return on investment. Oak timber is also exceptionally durable, meaning it’s able to withstand the harsh outdoor environments. Additionally, this means that our oak porches require little to no maintenance.
What are the Best Locations for a Green Oak Porch?
In most cases, porches are predominantly positioned at the front door or back door of a property entrance. Although porches vary in sizes, their primary purpose is to create a charming and inviting entrance to your property. Choosing the size of your green oak porch is also important, as it needs to merge with your property’s structure and design.
Fortunately, we have several oak porch kits that cater for all properties. However, if you’d prefer a completely bespoke porch design, this can easily be arranged.
Each of our green oak porches follows a strict quality assessment process before they’re packaged and sent to our customers.
These steps include:
- Sustainable sourcing
- On-site timber grading
- Ensuring products are Q-Mark equivalent
- Timber frames visually checked
If we do find that any timber is defective or doesn’t adhere to our high-quality standards, it is discarded. We will never use unreliable timber as this can affect the oak porch kit’s structural integrity.
