There is a whole assortment of home extension solutions currently available on the market with each offering their own unique set of benefits. A type of home extension that is experiencing a great deal of traction at the moment is the Porch with many homeowners opting for this affordable solution over some of the more complex alternatives. There are plenty of benefits to installing a porch and by being aware of just how beneficial it might be you may come to realise whether or not it benefits your property.
While a porch won’t single-handedly repel all potential intruders, it often makes a property far more secure. By adding another entrance to a property, it instantly becomes that much more difficult to access and frequently dissuades potential intruders before they even try to break in.
Curb appeal is a pretty big deal when it comes to properties; the value of a property can change depending on how aesthetically appealing the outside is and a modern porch can quite nicely compensate for some of the shortcomings that the front of your home may have. Available in a whole host of colours and designs, you always have a choice over what kind of porch best compliments the rest of your home.
A Cleaner Home
One of the main benefits to a porch is that they keep wet shoes and coats away from the entry way of your home. When keeping items of clothing in a hallway its pretty common for dirt or mud to collect and spread into the remainder of your home. By installing a porch, you probably won’t have to clean as often and will always have somewhere to store dirty clothing where it doesn’t clutter up the rest of your home.
A good deal of the energy lost across the home is due to old doors that don’t feature any form of insulation. A porch is a great opportunity to get a modern door in place which will offer up superior temperature retention saving you money on your energy bills and helping to keep your home more comfortable even through the more unpleasant months.
In a similar vein to energy efficiency, properties with a porch in place also tend to be far more effective when it comes to soundproofing. That extra space between the two doors frequently makes all the difference and is likely to make your property better soundproofed overall. An additional door – even when not designed to soundproof – can also help with this.
