Veranda Original is our signature low-maintenance patio cover. An elegant and durable structure, you can now enjoy your garden all year round protected from poor weather and harmful UV rays. Its the perfect solution for outdoor dining areas, door entrances, and furniture & product shelter.
Enjoy the outdoor season for longer with our strong prefabricated patio cover veranda. This premium veranda is manufactured in Germany to the highest standards, so you are assured of quality and its why we offer all our customers a 10-year warranty.
The upright posts are made of durable aluminium and are built to last all seasons. You can screw the uprights directly to the floor, thanks to the ready-to-use floor mounting. All veranda size variations have three uprights: 2 corner posts and 1 intermediate post. The exception to this is veranda widths of 3.04m which only have two uprights.
The Veranda Original is fitted with a transparent sheet of clear thick 10mm polycarbonate which are very resistant to damage. This type of clear roof panel is especially suitable for shady places, as it allows in more sunlight than an opal (white) polycarbonate roof.
Our polycarbonate sheets are also co-extruded with an UV inhibiting layer for longer life. The high performance UV layer offers protection from some of the sun’s rays. It also protects the sheet against loss of strength and yellowing. 10mm polycarbonate sheets are much lighter weight than glass. This makes them easier to handle and install.
The Veranda Original has an integrated rainwater drainage system, whereby rainwater is drained off through the front of the uprights with the addition of rounded gutters.

Planning permission is not required as a Veranda is not a room and can be classed as a removable structure.
The roof has a wall-plate profile that is screwed to the house wall.
For dry/pebble-dashed walls, you would simply scrape off any loose pebble where the wall plate is to be fitted. After fitting the plate, a silicone seal can then be applied to the wall to cover any gaps between the pebble and wall profile.
Note: Wall fixings are NOT included, they must be purchased separately because each situation requires different fixings and depends on the substrate or construction to which it needs to be affixed. Always seek advice from a specialist building supplier about what is required in your particular situation and only use stainless steel fixings.
The Veranda Original comes with a fixed mount system to allow you to fasten the veranda directly to your foundation. It is up to the customer to decide what bolts to use to fix the veranda down. The options to fix the veranda down:
1. Fix to an existing foundation. If you already have a foundation ready, you can simply install the veranda to it and complete your patio paving around your veranda posts if necessary. The integrated drainage system for this veranda means that rainwater exits through an opening at the bottom of the posts above ground, so there is no need to provide for underground drainage.
2. Fix to a deck or patio. We recommend the veranda ideally be securely fixed to a concrete foundation, but they can also be fixed to a deck or a patio. Care should be taken to make sure the veranda is fixed to a base capable of securing the structure during high winds, gusts, and snow. The Veranda Original comes with fixing brackets allowing it to be fixed to any suitable base, but the customer must ensure that the base is capable of supporting the structure.
Yes, it is no problem to fix the veranda but it must be fixed directly to the masonry of the house so there is no weight bearing on the insulation.
It is recommended to purchase some countersunk concrete screws from your local hardware store, these will go straight through the insulation to fix the veranda wall plate into the original blockwork.
See here for an example of what you need (7.5 x 180mm screws). These are 180mm so assuming that your insulation is 100mm this will give you 80mm into the masonry, if your insulation is thicker then just simply order longer screws.
Ideally, the patio would always be laid after the Veranda, so that the paving can be cut around the veranda posts to leave a nice finish.
Wind should not be an issue for your veranda if it is fixed square and plumb to the house wall so that the roof sheets fit correctly. Installation of the veranda with concrete foundation pads ensures additional security against tough weather.
The uprights are substantial 110mm by 95mm aluminium posts which offer great rigidity to the structure.
The roof is 100% waterproof, however with no side panels there will always be the possibility of rain coming in the sides depending upon the wind direction.
Temperature changes and moisture in the air can cause dew or condensation to appear outside and inside the veranda. This is normal and does not mean the veranda is leaking.
