Expansive and practical, a porch is an excellent way to add space to your home. They can offer an extra level of security, while bringing an attractive character to the exterior of your property.
Whether you’re looking to take on a home renovation or add value to your property, we offer uPVC porches and DIY porch kits that are quick and easy to install. What’s more, every DIY porch at ConservatoryLand is entirely unique – from the size and colour to the roof and glazing.
No matter what your specifications, we only use the highest-quality uPVC profiles, so you can rest assured that your porch will last a lifetime. You can even choose from a wide range of colours, so if you have your heart set on a grey uPVC porch, look no further.
Customise Your Porch Design
Our UPVC porches are made-to-measure based on your preferences and specifications. They are available in three different styles:
- Solid bottom panels
- Full-height glass
- Dwarf brick wall
At ConservatoryLand, we also have a wide range of brick and mortar finishes. You might opt for a brick finish for your dwarf wall that matches seamlessly with the exterior of your house.
You’re even free to select the type of roof you’d prefer – choosing between a polycarbonate or glass roof system. We also offer energy-efficient double glazed porches, so your extension will benefit from comfortable temperatures all year round.
DIY Porches & Self Build Porch Kits
One of the great things about our porch kits is that you can build the project without any help from installers. Using our step-by-step instructions, assembling your brand new porch should take no more than four days.
If you have the time to lend to the project, a self build porch is a great option for adding practicality and security to your home. Whether it’s a DIY front porch or rear porch, each element of the build is entirely up to you.
We take pride in providing high-quality installations. That’s why every order comes with a 10-year warranty, giving you peace of mind that your DIY porch is built to last.
You can also opt for a lean-to porch with a tiled roof, if you supply the tiles yourself. We don’t provide tiled roofs as part of the uPVC porch kit, but once you’ve assembled the main section it can be a straightforward process to fix the roof in place.

Benefits of a DIY Porch
Our DIY porches are made from high quality, long-lasting uPVC frames and are designed for easy assembly. What’s more, as a self build project, you’ll save on labour and installation costs.
There are many more benefits for choosing a DIY porch, including:
- Increasing the size and value of your home
- Maximising your space
- Creating a unique and attractive frontage on your home
- Building the project in your own time with minimal mess
In most cases, you won’t need planning permission for a porch as this type of extension is categorised as a permitted development. They follow the same rules as other extensions on your home. For example, if you have a driveway or a sufficient amount of land at the front or rear of your property that would accommodate a porch, it would qualify as a permitted development. Learn more on our planning permissions page.

Customer of the Month Case Study
Mr Ian Palmer had a lean to DIY Porch fitted in July 2017. Mr Palmer was looking for a porch for his home, and we were happy to provide him with exactly what he needed.
We built to his exact specifications. First drawing up the plans, and then manufacturing all the components.
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.
