Put simply, a Portico is a roof supported by columns, but at The Window Exchange we believe that this structure can be used creatively to be an extremely versatile outside space.

By creating a lovely additional ‘room’ in your garden, this shelter can be used to spend quality time with family and friends regardless of the great British weather!

The beauty of a Portico is the flexibility of the structure, this can be used as an outside study or office area, a covered BBQ area or additional entertaining space all year round – or how about a hot tub area?

A portico structure can be attached to your property in a similar fashion to a conservatory, or it can be a standalone structure in a placement of your choice in your garden.

Portico designs can be as classic or contemporary as desired, external lighting and heating can provide additional style and functionality to allow true versatility of use.

By creating an extra living space in your garden, many customers feel that they are adding additional value to their property, as well as increasing the amount of time they can spend in their garden.

Simply, a Portico offers exceptional versatility and can enable you to use your garden more in the winter and the summer, it could alter the way you and your family use your outside space.
