Traditional Metal Verandas

The introduction of traditional metal verandas to our range followed many enquiries from customers who loved the look of our zinc and copper canopies, but wanted to create larger covered areas. As all our canopies and brackets are made with metal frames, it was an easy transition for our staff to start fabricating the metal framework for the columns, pilasters and balustrades. As with our canopies, our team worked together to design a range of options to help customers choose the finished look of their verandas. It is noteworthy that the majority of our verandas are bespoke and made-to-order, so we are always happy to work with customers on unique designs.

The strong metal structure of our verandas means we can work over larger areas to create the wonderful outdoor living spaces desired by our customers. As with our other products, our verandas are manufactured with real zinc and copper roofs.

 

We believe we are the only company in the UK to do this.

The Georgian style houses pictured below show how our traditional metal verandas add splendour to houses as well as providing an outside seating area. It is noteworthy that both of the verandas pictured are located in conservation areas in London.

Along with our Belgravia style canopy clad in natural zinc, the image below shows how the metal framework can look once installed:

To help you decide on the design of your veranda, our design team can create and send mock-up designs that will help you picture how your veranda will look. Our team of award-winning metal fabricators will then manufacture each component in our factory.

The metal frames are manufactured by hand using mild steel. Our artisan workforce uses traditional skills to meticulously cut, bend and curve the metal to form the different parts of the framework before it is welded, sanded and powder-coated. In some cases, due to the size of our verandas, the final construction of the framework is done on-site. Typically, because of the bespoke nature of our verandas, we carry out many of the installations ourselves.

The versatility of our veranda designs means they can be used to enhance buildings of all architectural styles.  The wrap-around veranda on the left-hand picture above gives this modern-looking building an Art Deco feel, especially with the fleur-de-lis end caps.  The simple look of the veranda pictured to its right provides a subtle addition to this charming period farmhouse.  The Glamorgan roofed veranda on the quaint Georgian-style cottage below shows how the use of powder coating to a specific RAL colour can add a different dimension to the metal framework.  This has been further enhanced by the scalloped design of the valance, giving it a real period feel.

On occasion we have been asked to include glass panels into the roof of our verandas to allow light into windows or doors, an example is shown in the left-hand picture above. We have partnered with a glass expert to manufacture curved glass panels to fit perfectly into our veranda roofs. Our verandas can be installed with or without guttering; this can optionally be done with matching zinc or copper gutters and downpipes. An example of one of our zinc gutters is shown in the picture above on the right.

We have also been commissioned to create zinc and copper roofs for existing metalwork, examples of which are pictured below. As well as replacing parts of existing framework, we are also happy to supply replacement powder-coated pilasters and ornate metalwork for existing verandas.
