What are UPVC porches?

A uPVC porch is a small, enclosed structure attached to the entrance of a house or building. The term “uPVC” stands for unplasticised polyvinyl chloride, which is a type of plastic that is commonly used in the construction of building materials, including doors, windows, and porch frames.

uPVC porches are popular because they are durable, low-maintenance, and cost-effective. They can also be customised to match the style of the house and can provide additional insulation to the entrance of the building. Additionally, they can improve the curb appeal of a property and provide a useful space for storing shoes, coats, and other outdoor items.

What are the benefits of a UPVC porch in Cornwall?

There are several benefits of uPVC porches for homes in Cornwall, including:

Increased Energy Efficiency

uPVC is a good insulator, so adding an uPVC porch to your home can help to keep the interior of your home warmer in winter and cooler in summer, reducing energy consumption and saving money on heating and cooling bills.

Enhanced Security

uPVC is a strong and durable material, making uPVC porches an excellent addition to your home’s security. uPVC doors and windows are difficult to break, making them a deterrent to intruders.

Low Maintenance

uPVC porches require very little maintenance. Unlike wood, they do not require painting or staining, and they are resistant to weathering, rotting, and warping.

Increased Curb Appeal

uPVC porches can enhance the look of your home’s entrance, adding value and curb appeal to your property.

Additional Space

An uPVC porch can provide additional space to your home, creating a buffer zone between the outside and inside. It can also provide a convenient storage area for outdoor items such as shoes, coats, and umbrellas.

Sound Insulation

uPVC is a good sound insulator, so an uPVC porch can help to reduce noise from the outside, creating a more peaceful and comfortable environment inside your home.

Overall, uPVC porches offer a range of benefits for the home, from improving energy efficiency and security to enhancing the look of your property and providing additional space.
