Glass Canopy Creates a Year Round Patio Seating Area on Exeter Property


Having recently moved into their newly built 5 bedroom house on the edge of Exeter; the family wanted to make the most of their outside space.

The Project

The homeowners decided to add a glass canopy (also known as a veranda or Atrium) onto the back of their property, in order to create an outdoor space which can be used year round.


The 4.5 metre wide glass canopy sits below the upstairs windows, and above the 2 sets of bi-folding doors leading out from the living/kitchen areas of the house.

The pitch of verandas can be anywhere between 5° to 45° in order to suit the requirements of the property.

Made of glass and aluminium the sleek and modern looking canopy, allows the bi-folding doors to be opened onto a covered patio area. Creating the perfect entertaining space, allowing for alfresco dining whatever the weather.

The non-heat-insulated aluminium roof system, allows the sunlight to shine through the glass roof. And when it does rain; feeds the water into the concealed roof drainage and down via the corner post.

The aluminium of the glass canopy is finished in RAL 7016, anthracite grey; which matches the aluminium windows and doors in the property. Creating an overal elegant appearance, and the perfect covered area.
