Add Value Onto Your Home With A Front Porch

You never know when you will start to grow tired of your home. Although it may not be now, there may come a time when you fancy moving elsewhere, so it’s astute to regularly make improvements to enhance the value of the property for when you are ready to sell up.
Improving the entranceway into the house will most definitely lift its resale price and we’re not just talking about fitting a new front door.

Include a porch in your home improvement plans

Planning shouldn’t be an issue for most porch installations so long as they obey the necessary dimensions and guidelines.

A well-designed porch will massively enhance your entranceway due to its stunning aesthetics and make the whole place a lot more noticeable.

Relatively inexpensive when you compare it to the cost of a home extension, a porch will also give you more space to play with.

The space can be used for storing some of the following items:

  • Shoes
  • Coats / Jackets
  • Hats
  • Scarves

There may even be enough space for the porch to be decorated in some way, so you could easily squeeze some potted plants in there to give the inside of the porch a bit of colour.

It’ll be handy as well for when you’re expecting a delivery when there’s nobody in as the package can always be left in the porch (at your own responsibility of course!).

Added home protection

If you’re concerned about home security and need further peace of mind when leaving your property unoccupied, a porch will provide an extra layer of security.

UPVC and aluminium porches have very resilient frames, thick double glazed windows and contain multi-point locks. When these locks are fastened they’re almost impossible to open without the appropriate key.

Re-energise your home in more ways than one

Post-porch installation, not only will your home look re-energised, but it will enhance thermal efficiency as less heat will be able to escape through your new-look entrance.
