DIY Porch on Existing Base

July 2017 Customer of the Month Case Study – DIY Porch, Ashord Kent

Once again, Conservatory Land is happy to reveal its Customer of the Month – for July 2017.

This month, that honour goes to Mr Ian Palmer.

Mr Palmer was looking for a porch for his home, and we were happy to provide him with exactly what he needed.

Mr Palmer was provided with the parts for a Porch.

He requested Standard Glass, gold handles and smooth insulated panels. Complete with a letterbox.

The dimensions were as follows:

  • Dimensions – 1790mm x 1302mm

In addition, the porch was built using white PVCu, and a 25mm Clear Polycarbonate material for the roof.

And, to top it all off, the extension came with a 10 year guarantee on all parts.

The Installation Process

Like most of the conservatories we sell – this was a DIY project.

Mr Palmer built the porch himself, using the parts we gave him and the clear, easy-to-follow instructions we provided.

And it looks fantastic – as you can tell by the pictures. As good as any professional could have done.
