Why Choose Nationwide for an Awning or Veranda?

Traditional Verandas Bournemouth

Traditional & Contemporary Verandas

We provide a comprehensive range of Verandas to suit any property style or personal preference. Often people will choose a more traditional design for the older style property and a contemporary design for the more modern building but you can pick and choose as you please!

Our Dorset showroom has several of our Verandas on display so why not make a visit?

Contemporary Verandas Bournemouth

Why Choose A Veranda?

A Veranda will allow you to enjoy the outdoors in all seasons and no matter what the weather is doing. At Nationwide, we can provide a range of options to enhance your Veranda making it even more versatile. Our Sliding & Fixed Glass Walls are ideal for those looking to partially or fully enclose the structure.

Most of our addons can be installed at the time of the initial installation or at any point in the future.

Sun Screens in Bournemouth

Climate Control Screens

As well as Fixed & Sliding Glass Walls, many people like to incorporate our Climate Control Sun Screens into their Veranda. Clime Control Screens provide many benefits. Designed to block heat and UV rays without cutting the light, they can also provide privacy and thanks to the way the fabric zips into the guide rails, you get the added benefit of keeping unwanted insects away.

Aluminium Louvered Pergolas Dorset

Louvered Pergolas

One of our newest products is the Aluminium Louvered Pergola. Aluminium Pergolas can either be freestanding or mounted to your property. At the press of a button you can control the light and shade by rotating the louvres to your preference.

If the weather turns against you then simply close the louvres and you are then protected from the weather.

Just like our Verandas, Aluminium Louvered Roofs are fully compatible with our Sliding Glass Walls and Climate Control Screens allowing you to fully or partially enclose your structure.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I install an Awning or Veranda to a bungalow?

Thanks to our specialist design team we often install our Awnings & Verandas where others cannot. Using bespoke brackets and framework we engineer a solution to overcome most obstacles. It is extremely common for us to install to bungalows!

I don't have a suitable wall - can I have an Awning or Veranda installed?

In most cases - yes! - we provide a range of freestanding options, again, using bespoke framework to make the product completely independent from the building. We regularly install our products to, for example, static and park homes.

Do I need planning permission for an Awning?

In almost all domestic/residential settings, planning permission is not required for an Awning. Of course, there are always exceptions (for example listed buildings or conservation areas) so if you are unsure then it is best to check

Do I need planning permission for a Veranda?

It is very uncommon to require planning permission for a Veranda. However, there are exceptions. The main times that planning permission is required is when you are installing to a listed building, the Veranda is larger than 50% of the land the original property covers or the Veranda is more than 3m in height.

If in doubt then it can pay to check with your local authority. The term "Veranda" is very ambiguous and can relate to a lot of other types of products unrelated to ours. It is always best to refer to it as a "Glass Canopy" or "Lean-to Roof" when making any enquiries.

I have a pipe/obstruction in the way - can you help?

As each installation is unique to you, we can tailor solutions to overcome obstacles. Whether it is utilising bespoke framework or implementing glass cut outs in Veranda Roofs, we can usually come with up with a suitable solution.
