Is a Veranda Better than an Awning?

Posted on July 14, 2017 at 11:39 pm

Verandas and awnings serve much the same purpose but are very different structurally. It is difficult to say whether one is better than the other as it will depend on people’s personal preferences. There are many reasons to install both, so here are some pointers to help you decide which is right for you:


Install these as a permanent structure in your garden. You will be able to benefit from verandas all year round and a well installed, well designed one can even add to the value of your house. Verandas are often glass to give a sense of space but they can be made from many different materials.


Awnings are retractable and can be folded in when you are not using them. The mechanism will be either motorised or manual. They are available in many different colours and styles, giving plenty of options to pick the appearance you want.
