A Brick porch can give a solid and reliable additional to the front of your home. A brick porch is perfect for storing bikes, shoes and other objects, allowing a ‘drying space’. In the summer the porch can also act as a perfect solution to offer shade from the sun, keeping your home cooler. Brick porches can be installed with lighting so that you also have a space to find your keys before arriving home. Porches can be built with an open space to the front and sides for quick access, however if you are planning on storing items with some value in your porch then they can be fitted with windows and doors to ensure they are secure, becoming more of an extension of your home rather than an outside shelter.
