Here is a recent installation of a Veranda in Dorset. This is a Polycarbonate Veranda and has an anthracite frame.
As well as just the Veranda roof, there is a also a fully retractable electric sun screen mounted to the side. Sun screens provide protection from the sun as well as wind and at the same time offers excellent privacy.
The Sun Screen is operated via a remote control though also comes with a sensor that can automatically lower or raise the screen depending on your requirements. There is also a patio heater that will maintain a comfortable temperature no matter how chilly it get.
Sun Screens are a great addition to any Veranda as they still allow light to pass yet stop wind and excess heat. They can also commonly installed on windows to keep rooms cool and furnishings protected. Being external, the screens are far more effective at heat reduction than internal blinds.
The triangular shape that the lean-to roof creates is filled in with and aluminium frame holding matching polycarbonate. It is always totally optional as to whether you want the triangular gable installed though it makes sense when blocking off one end.
