Creating The Perfect Oak Porch

At Nationwide Home & Leisure our Oak porches range from simple, open or glazed entrance ways, to luxury bespoke welcome areas that will add serious kerb appeal to your property. Our craftsmanship is what always sets our oak porches apart.

You can enquire with us today to see some of our oak porch designs and features, and treat these as a basis on which to develop your own ideas for a bespoke oak porch. We can work from photographs of porches you have seen, or hand sketches done by yourself but are also happy to work from your architect’s porch drawings.

Take these three steps to start your bespoke oak porch journey:

  • Get in touch to see some of our most popular oak porch designs or sketch your own ideas.
  • Confirm the dimensions and design of your porch by chatting to us.
  • Once you are happy with price and design for your porch, you can place an order and we will produce a 3D drawing of the oak porch, confirming the dimensions and relative positioning.

Case Study – Oak Framed Canopy

As winter closes in, porches and canopies are fast becoming a doorstep must-have for homeowners. Porches bring a real benefit at this time of year, but they can also prove to be the perfect asset for a home’s overall aesthetic appearance.

The initial enquiry for this project was simple;

“I have a concrete lintel above our entrance door acting as a shelter and I was wondering how we can remove and replace with an oak frame canopy’’

This is a common enquiry for us but removing the lintel could have structural implications as they are set back into the main brickwork. We suggested to the client building around it, not only building an oak frame canopy to wrap around the lintel we also cladded the underside to complete the oak feel.

Being the main exterior element to a building’s frontage, a porch is constantly subject to the forces of nature meaning the material’s longevity and durability is key. With an Oak Porch from Nationwide Home & Leisure, we are creating a timeless addition to your property, with many advantages. Unlike most other materials, Oak ages beautifully, over time it will morph into a stunning silver patina. As the material dries out and the Oak loses its moisture you are left with an exceptionally strong and stable structure.

Everything we create here at Nationwide Home & Leisure is bespoke to the customer from size and elevation detail through to roof pitch and finally onto beam style. With your input and our expertise together we can create your dream porch.
