Shelter Your Front Door with a Traditional Storm Porch

Here at The Porch Specialist, we can create a kit to help you build and install the ideal storm porch for your home. Whether you’re simply looking to keep the rain out of your hallway whenever you open your front door, or need a place to keep your family’s shoes when you’ve all been outside, we can provide you with the kit for a sheltered space that suits you best.

Get in touch with us today and we can start discussing your specifications before our master carpenters begin their work, so the product that’s delivered is exactly what you’ve been expecting.

What is a Storm Porch?

A storm porch is a small roofed structure designed to keep a property’s outside door safe and sheltered from bad and cold weather. They may also be used for storage, or even as a small outdoor seating area in some cases.


Our Storm Porch Kit Designs


Our porches most commonly come with a pitched roof, in a gable roof design, but we are more than capable of adapting to create the hip roof frame that will suit your property most. 

We have several porch designs that we would suggest for a hip roof porch:

  • Wall & Floor Mounted Porch
  • Low Brick Plinth Porch
  • High Brick Plinth Porch
  • Full Height Porch

Each of these classically crafted porch types can be made in oak or Douglas-fir timber, and in most cases the products we make should not require planning permission. However, there are some stipulations to this, which you can check by going to our advice on porches and planning permission.

Our Style Options for Your Hip Roof Porch

Once you have settled on the perfect design for your porch, you will be able to select the more intricate features to style it as you would like most. Whether you’re looking at half-brick designs with mullions to suit an older property, or would like an open full height porch for your modern redbrick in the suburbs, complete with a straight front truss, we can make it happen in your kit.

We Offer Bespoke Options

There are many occasions where customers will already have their own ideas in mind for the porch they’d like for their property. In these cases, all they’ll have to do is tell us what they would like and we will create the bespoke product which suits their needs and specifications exactly. So, if you’d like to bring us a design you’d love to see on your property, contact us and we will do everything we can to get it ready for you.

Our Hipped Roof Porch Kits are Primed for Easy Assembly

Every kit we make is primed for a quick, easy assembly through our use of traditional jointing techniques. These allow each part of your porch’s framing to slot neatly together, holding their durable design and letting you finish your installation in no time at all. If you have had some DIY experience before, this should prove little trouble.

We’ll also continue to provide assistance, even after your kit has been delivered. This will come in the form of an easily-followed instruction manual packed in with your product, and we are also happy to provide planning drawings upon request.

From this, you can see the designs and styles which will suit your property most before you place an order.

Why Choose Us?

We love what we do, and we completely understand that you’ll want to know more about us before deciding to work with us. There are many reasons customers from across the UK have been able to build their ideal porches through our service, which we are more than happy to share for your consideration:

We Sustainably Source Products: Everything we make is sourced from the finest green oak and Douglas-fir timber we have available, grown specially for this purpose on a designated site in France. For every one of these trees that we use, we will ensure that three more are planted in its place. This keeps our work sustainable and means we can provide a steady supply of products for many years to come.

We Minimise Waste: The trees we use in our work are all cultivated to grow as tall, strong and straight as possible. This ensures that we can use more of the wood, so less is wasted.

We Thoroughly Check All Timber: Once the wood arrives at our workshops, it will be meticulously inspected by our team of expert carpenters and timber graders. They’ll look for any cracks, flaws or other weaknesses that would prevent the timber from achieving full structural integrity when made into framing for a kit. If any pieces like this are found, they’ll be responsibly recycled so that only the strongest wood is used in our work.

We Utilise Modern Technology: Our work on your porch kit will be aided by state-of-the-art equipment, from machinery that can pinpoint otherwise unseen faults in the timber during the grading process, to tools that help us to cut every kit’s frame with precision accuracy. Both of these help to rule out human error, so you can be guaranteed a perfect product, no matter what you order.

We Make Q-Mark Equivalent Products: We make and manufacture every porch kit to the standards set by Exova BM TRADA. This means you can feel confident knowing that your purchased porch kit will have been made to industry standards and never anything less.

Our Prices for Your Hip Roof Porch

How much it will cost to build your hip roof porch can vary considerably, depending on a range of different factors and choices made during the ordering process. Because of this, we will price every product we make individually, working closely with our customers to ensure that the cost of their porch is suited to the features they have chosen, as well as their personal budgets. 

We are also a price-competitive firm, so if you find a hip roof porch in timber or oak framing that’s cheaper than our own offerings, we’ll be happy to match or beat the deal.

Build a Charming New Addition to Your Property

If you have been searching for the ideal porch to match the rest of your home, complimenting the roof style and offering a timeless appeal, a bespoke hip porch roof design from The Porch Specialist may be just what you’ve been looking for.

You will be in charge of your own work project from the moment your kit arrives, no matter where you are in the UK. So, as soon as your work is signed off and delivered you will be completely set for a simple, swift assembly that can be completed on your own schedule.

Get in touch with us today and one of our team members will be happy to talk with you about your porch’s requirements and specifications. Once we have everything we need to know to complete your kit, we’ll help you to complete your purchase and let our master carpenters know that they can start their work.
