A portico is an ideal, cost-effective way to transform a plain or uninspiring elevation on both new and old properties – often requiring minimal disruption for maximum effect.
The Acanthus PT1 Portico has simple, classical styling that tends to suit most property styles and periods. This portico can be made to your exact specifications, both in terms of dimensions and decorative features – matching steps and risers cab be specified if needed.
We also offer more complex portico designs, including curved or semi-circular options. And Acanthus balustrade may also be added to your portico as a decorative feature, or to Building Regulations standards enabling the portico roof to be used as a balcony.
All porticos are available with a choice of columns, plain tapered, fluted or half-columns and pilasters (to sit against a wall). Capitols may also be added to the columns, including classically designed and scaled Tuscan, Corinthian, Ionic and Doric features.
Every Acanthus portico is made to order in a colour of your choice from our full range of natural stone shades. Each component will exceed the technical demands of BS1217, UKCSA Specification and NBS clause F22 for your complete peace of mind.
