Ventilation is a key necessity for porches. In the summer especially, the sun will heat it up like a parked car.
Also, remember that security should not be ignored and your inner front door will require high security.
In particular, the main benefits for having a porch built are:
- Increased door security
- Increased insulation
- Good looks
- Extra room for bikes, wellies, brollies and other items.
What many customers underestimate is the cost asssociated with porches. They are, after all, a luxury.
Porches rarely add the same sort of value to your property as they cost, so don?t expect to generate revenue later down the line. Therefore, if you?re considering moving house in the near future, it would probably be a waste of both time and money.
However, if you intend to stay put for years to come, porches will add to the ?curb appeal? of your home with their aesthetically pleasing look.
