How to Plan your Dream Porch Installation

Thinking of having a new porch installed in North West London?

We’ve broken the process down into 6 easy steps

Step 1: Choose the Size & Style
Porches can come in a range of styles and shapes as each one is tailored to your home and personal tastes.

Planning permission?
Porches up to 3.5m2 do not require planning permission.

Choosing the right brickwork is important when making your porch look like a part of your home, not merely an extension of it. At The Window Centre we have a wide range of brick types to choose from and a range of build styles, such as single skin or cavity brickwork.

All porches require foundations to be dug - usually to a depth of around 80-100cm
Step 2: Windows, Doors & Glazing
The options you choose will allow light to enter your porch and make each porch individual and beautiful.

The Window Centre specialises in all types of glazing - choose from double and triple glazed units, or from our wide range of decorative styles. We’ll ensure that not only will your porch windows look great, but that they will insulate your home and be energy efficient.
Our wide range of doors
Will give you a vast amount of choice when choosing the perfect entrance to your home. Choose from some of our favourites, such as composite doors, to enhance the look of your home and improve security.

Step 3: Choose your Roof Style
There is a range of roof styles to choose from when designing your porch. The most popular are Pitch, Hip and Gable. When choosing your roof style we will ensure it fits in with your home and looks the best it possibly can.

Tiling options
There are a wide range of tiling options also, varying in size, colour and appearance to give you as much choice as possible when personalising your porch. Lead flashing and guttering come as standard to keep your porch perfectly weatherproof.
Step 4: The Finishing Touches
We know that it is the finishing touches that make your porch stand out and be personal to you and your home.

We offer various flooring finishes such as laminate, screed, timber and carpet.

Electrics & Lighting
We feel that your porch should look great at night and be of as much use as possible and as such we help with ideas for lighting and electrics internally and externally to complete the look of your porch.
All walls will be plastered to a high quality finish - ready for you to add that lick of paint, wallpaper or that extra personal touch.

Step 5: Leave the Rest to us
After taking you through the steps and having decided on your perfect porch we will bring the designs together, order the high quality materials and arrange for our fitters to come over and begin work.

Our fitters are highly experienced, friendly and very tidy, we are confident you will be pleased with the work done and even more so with the finished porch!
