A guide to Porches

Choosing your porch doors and windows

Because your Anglian porch is made bespoke for you, you'll have a few decisions to make before our team arrives at your home for installation.

In addition to serving a practical purpose, the doors and windows of your porch can completely transform its appearance. As with all Anglian products, the window frames, door frames and glass panels are all made in Britain, so you’re getting guaranteed quality – plus, you'll have plenty of options to choose from, too.



Choosing windows for your porch

When it comes to window frames, you'll have three options: uPVC, wood and aluminium. Each offer their own unique properties, and can be combined with plain, decorative or obscure glass.


uPVC windows

Offering maximum security, high energy efficiency and sound insulation from any outdoor disturbances, Anglian uPVC windows are built to last. There are five different styles in total, ranging from charming cottage windows that are wonderful for smaller homes wishing to channel a countryside feel, to contemporary tilt and turn windows that work with any modern build.


Wooden windows

The perfect accompaniment to a wooden porch door, wooden windows offer brilliant, traditional touches to any porch. At Anglian, we combine age-old joinery skills with modern technology to deliver beautiful wooden windows that are made to last. Available in a range of shades from natural hues to classic white, ivory and black, they're also perfect for any period home.


Aluminium windows

Looking for something more contemporary? Sleek yet wonderfully simple, aluminium porch windows suit just about any home, but are a particularly popular choice for modern properties. You can even select a different colour frame for inside your porch than the outside. In fact, our aluminium windows are available in more than 200 colours.  



Choosing a door for your porch

The centrepiece of your porch will be your brand new door. Whether you're looking for something contemporary or wish to stay traditional, Anglian’s large collection of doors has a little something for all tastes.


uPVC porch doors

Highly popular with Anglian customers, uPVC porch doors are available in a huge range of shades, with a dual colour option also available. It's easy to add your own personal touch with a uPVC door, and their flexible nature enables you to achieve unique looks with various glass panel designs. And like all Anglian products, our uPVC porch doors are long-lasting, produced in the UK and easy to maintain.


Composite porch doors

Made through innovative engineering and with energy-efficient materials, our composite porch doors can be split into four distinct style categories: traditional, contemporary, cottage and designer. They’re particularly versatile, as from there, you’ve got your choice of colour, finish and door furniture to ensure your door is customised exactly to your taste.


Aluminium porch doors

If you’d love to purchase a door in an unusual colour, or wish to add something simple yet effortlessly stylish to your porch, aluminium doors are a top choice. Our aluminium doors come in more than 200 colours, and alongside their sleek, modern design they also offer complete peace of mind when it comes to security, thanks to their Yale 3-star cylinder locks.  


Wooden porch doors

We recommend our wooden porch doors for anyone wishing to preserve the traditional charm of their home. They’re ideal for period homes and properties in conservation areas, and will blend in seamlessly with surrounding houses. 

Durable and secure, Anglian wooden porch doors also come in many different shades and up to 22 designs. A simple white or black wooden door keeps things classic, while pillar box red and primrose yellow help your home stand out. Meanwhile, our woodgrain effect doors, such as golden oak and dark woodgrain, can add a rustic touch.
