Acanthus Cast Stone are well known for the superb range of portico designs on offer. Our porticos are extremely popular and can transform the look of a building (as well as significantly increasing its value) for a relatively modest outlay. Porticos can easily be attached to existing buildings as well as being incorporated into the design of new projects.We have a number of designs to choose from, ranging from our classically detailed and highly popular PT1, through to our recently added PT6. We regularly manufacture custom-made porticos including semi-circular and elliptically shaped designs.
A range of plain and fluted columns are available. All columns have correctly detailed entasis with the option of matching half-columns or pilasters. Columns are usually supplied solid but can be made hollow to accommodate steelwork or drainage. Balustrade can be added above if the roof is to be used as a balcony.Most porticos are supplied with a matching floor to finish off the project perfectly. The key to an elegant portico is to use carefully designed components with the correct proportions. If you would like help with a portico project then please contact our experienced design team. Portico installation is relatively straightforward, but accurate construction and neat pointing of the joints is crucial.
We provide fully dimensioned CAD and component drawings and include free matching pointing material for the joints to ensure a close colour match. If you don't feel confident about your own builder installing a portico then we know of experienced contractors who build them regularly and who would be happy to quote for installation. This listing is for our PT1 Portico, available in three different sizes, as per the drawings attached. Please speak to our sales team if any of the measurements require amending to suit your property. All our deliveries are prebooked so please include your telephone number with your order so that we can contact you to arrange this.

Items cannot be offloaded onto gravel driveways. Alternatively, goods can be collected from our factory. If no one is in to check and sign for the goods, or if the goods cannot be safely moved once unloaded and have to be redelivered an additional carriage cost will be payable prior to redelivery.We manufacture probably the UK's widest range of coping stones and have options to suit all tastes and budgets. Designs include apex, once weathered and flat top copings to suit different wall thicknesses and for rendered walls or railings.

Plinth and string courses are used to add contrasting features to a larger area of wall usually sits a couple of courses below the copings or as a plinth at the bottom.
