View our range of porches, we also install in and around London

Our front and rear porches will add valuable space to your property and are perfect for entrances to the front, side or rear of your home.

We can either create a new porch opening or replace the windows and doors in your existing porch. Our porches are available in all the profiles and colours of our other products and made from UPVc, timber or aluminium materials.

The Porch Roof

Most porches, like conservatories, are designed by the roof first. This is how we decipher how it can be attached to the property. We can also decide at this stage whether the roof should be tiled or made from glass.

Some porches cannot have pitched roofs, and therefore the only option is a flat roof. Osborn Glass offers a range of porch roofs including our single-piece porch roof. The single-piece porch roof is designed to be a cost-effective way of construction. Manufactured from rigid GRP and high-density polyurethane foam, the roof has excellent thermal insulation qualities; it is available in a made to measure form using attractive dental mouldings.

Once the roof is delivered to site, it can be fitted to the fixing timbers quickly and easily. The lighting conduit is concealed beneath the decorative ceiling, which may be painted to suit your taste.

The Flexi Porch Roof Modules are available in light or dark brown and three shades of white: Standard, Ultra and Deeplas.

All other types of roof are available with pitched glass or tiled roofs being the most popular.
