The right patio roof to meet your needs
This relatively new concept to the UK of ‘outdoor living’ – a modern ‘inside-outside’ space connecting house and garden enabling the enjoyment of your garden or patio all year round come rain or shine is not new in Europe by any means. The awareness and understanding of the great benefits of being outdoors has been enhanced by the recent pandemic wth most people now seeing and felling the benefits of being outside far more often. The enjoyment of the outdoors is a great thing – healthy, more interesting and conducive to far more interactivity with friends, family or customers in the commercial environment.
The glass veranda (or glass roof or canopy) is a very solid investment for your home or business, extending the space and potential use of the room it is coming out of and providing a great outdoor space for all manner of purposes
Cooking, drinking, socialising, working and generally relaxing is nearly always better outside and to be assured of the ability to use your outside space most of the year round with one of our exclusive glass verandas will be a great comfort and additional benefit to your home.

A Glass Veranda adds a new dimension to your home, a unique Alfresco space always available.
Various roof models – Equipped exactly the way you need them
The aluminium frame work of our verandas are available in over 200 colours, including 47 standard RAL colours and 9 scratchproof resistant trend colours, with a textured super tough finish.
The optional lighting bars available are high output LED units, providing far more power than basic effects lighting. The LED lights are very low power consumption and easily illuminate an area, with full control available via a remote control hand set or even via smartphone applications. Heating elements can also be controlled in this way to provide infra-red heat for the cooler nights.
A glass veranda is a roof structure built from glass and with either aluminium or polycarbonate frame work, for use on any terrace or patio, domestic or commercial, allowing you to enjoy your garden throughout the year and with the added option of heating and lighting let you continue use well into the night as well.
Create the Right Glass Veranda for You
Our glass verandas stand out for their elegant design and seamless looks. Seamlessly reaching out from the building it will truly extend and improve the outdoor area with ease. With so many versions to choose from, they also adapt effortlessly to complex building structures.
We have a basic glass roof system which is only offered as a canopy protection, the Samson G6. It can have a fabric blind added for sun protection but is not modular like our other systems with the additional items for the sides and front. It does have integrated rainwater guttering however unlike some cheaper systems on the market with external UPVC guttering and external downpipes. All our systems have integral guttering for the very neatest visual appearance. The support legs can also be cantilevered for a different visual appearance. Victorian style aluminium castings can also be added for a more traditional look.
We also offer the Samson G8, a glass veranda system with a bigger maximum projection than the G6, as well as the ability to be a self standing system unnatached to a wall or structure. This opens it up to numerous other uses, in particular commercial applications. Joining the systems together can allow you to cover almost any area, with various roof profiles such as the Apex, Mono-pitch and Arched.
Our next version has a contemporary feel with mainly square aluminium profile sections and can have lighting, sliding or folding glass doors and other fixed or louvred aluminium infills as well as a surface or under glass mounted fabric blind for sun shading to help create a perfect outdoor weather protected space.
Our flagship range comes from the Weinor system, offering the entire range of desirable options with a very traditional feel to the structure as well as the strongest build specification all round. Being modular you can start with the roof only and then add components when you wish – LED lighting, internal or external blinds, sliding glass doors, solid glass walls and so on to create the perfect atmosphere and outdoor room. Weinor are market leaders in outdoor living products with a wide range of retractable awnings, vertical blinds and commercial systems all designed with high specifications for a Norther European climate rather than the sunnier southern parts of Europe where rain and dampness is not an issue.
The modular construction of our verandas always allows you to start with a standard roof structure and add elements later on such as glass panels and/or glazing quickly turning your roof structure into an beautiful outdoor room capable of dealing with sun, wind and rain to control your outdoor living space.
Benefits and Features
The glass verandas come in many different shapes and sizes for domestic or commercial applications and the additional space created in a short space of time with minimal building work means they can be one of the most economical ways to create truly stunning outdoor/indoor areas with defined boundaries. An extension of an existing room or rooms in a building to create a more enclosed and protected space and yet filled with light and a feeling of openness with the glass and frameless door used.
We would suggest the glass veranda or glass outdoor room for anyone wanting to spend a lot more time outside but with the added benefit of weather control and comfort in knowing the rain will not spoil their outdoor experience at any time. For commercial premises they will generally offer a very easy way of creating additional covered space to provide customers with more space and ultimately more revenue in additional seating. The stylish and inviting atmosphere created inside a glass room, whether in the daytime or night time is always inviting and can easily become the ‘preferred area’ for customers to spend time.

The Perfect British Weather Solution
With a built in awning attached, a glass veranda is the ultimate solution to any garden or patio that faces south or west, and will provide the best possible combination of rain and sun protection. All of the veranda or glass room systems we offer are made to measure, and they are all available in a massive variety of finished colours for both the framework and the awnings.
The awnings are always electrically operated, because there is so much tension in the fabric cover in order to minimise any sagging on larger sizes. The controls for these are simple and easy to use, and sun sensors can also be used to automatically extend the awning once the sun is at a certain level.
