Beyond the essential shelter and protection, a bespoke oak-framed porch can add elegance, value, and character to your home.
From classic canopy designs to grand glazed facades and structures, the entrance to your property can make a real statement. With our bespoke oak porch design and construction, we can also include a solid oak door and casement windows, tailor-made by professional joiners, providing the perfect finishing touch.
Regardless of the age of your building, the timeless nature of oak will blend seamlessly with the aesthetic of modern or traditional houses. Plus, you have the practicality of additional space to store coats and footwear.

Your oak porch won’t need planning consent as long as it meets the following criteria:
- No part of the porch is taller than three square metres.
- It’s not within 2m of any boundary adjacent to a road.
- Its ground area (measured externally) does not exceed three square metres.
However, a large, enclosed porch that exceeds three square metres of the ground area will fall under the category of a ‘single-story extension’ and will need to meet the specified criteria for PD.
The cost of your oak porch depends on its size and complexity. Some basic oak porches may cost less than £1000, while others can extend beyond £5000.
All porches must include foundations to comply with building regulations. Most porch foundations fall between 650-1000mm. Other factors affecting foundation depth include tree roots, drains, electrical wires, and other below-ground considerations.
If the porch is constructed well and suits the aesthetic of your home, then it will boost the value of your property.
