A veranda is a perfect option for upgrading your garden, seamlessly combining your indoor and outdoor living spaces. If you’re considering adding a veranda to your home, one of the crucial aspects to factor in is the cost. In this blog post, we’ll look into the various elements that influence the cost of building a veranda, helping you make informed decisions for your home improvement project.
What factors affect the price of a veranda?
There are several factors that affect the price of new veranda that you should be aware of when embarking on the journey of investing in one. Factors including size, material choice, roofing options and design, design complexities and any additional features and accessories all contribute to the overall cost.
The size of your veranda plays a pivotal role in determining the overall cost. Naturally, a larger veranda will require more materials, labour, and take longer to install. Larger or bespoke verandas require additional design and manufacturing too, both impacting the overall price. It’s important to consider the reason for investing in a veranda—whether it’s a cosy nook for morning coffee or a spacious entertainment area. Determining the size based on your needs will give you a clearer idea of the budget required. For the most popular sizes requested, we offer standard size options for your veranda ranging from 3×2.5m up to 6x3m. All standard size verandas are delivered and installed in just four weeks with prices starting at £4,730. All our verandas require professional installation to ensure quality of work and provide a guarantee. The length of time required to install your veranda will be largely impacted by the size.
The materials you choose for your veranda significantly impact the cost. Common materials for veranda construction include steel, aluminium, and wood. Each material differs in relation to price. All materials come with their own set of pros and cons, affecting both the initial investment and long-term maintenance costs. Steel is the most expensive material and use for bespoke verandas due to it strength compared to other materials. Aluminium and wood are cheaper options where suitable. Wood exudes a timeless charm but may require more upkeep than aluminium, which is known for its durability and low maintenance. We recommend talking to our expert about your material options and the benefits of each based on your needs to allow you to decide which is your best option.
The type of roofing you opt for can also influence the overall cost of your veranda. There are several options including a lean-to veranda, hip roof, and apex roof. Each roof type comes with its own requirements when installing a veranda. Your choice of roofing will depend on your property, design preference and budget constraints. Some applications will require a specific roof option so it’s important to understand your options when considering a veranda.
The complexity of your veranda’s design is another crucial factor affecting costs. Basic, rectangular verandas are generally more affordable than intricate designs with curves, angles, or multi-level structures.
Additional Features and Accessories
It’s important to remember it’s not just the cost of the design and build of the veranda itself you need to consider. There are other requirements such as accessories, furniture and styling that really complete your new feature. Also, if you decide you’d prefer your new veranda to be a full enclosed structure and create a full glass veranda, there is the additional cost of glass side panels and sliding doors. Our experts can advise on the cost of creating a glass room and the benefits of doing so.
Adding a veranda to your home is a rewarding investment that enhances your living space and increases the overall value of your property. By carefully considering the factors mentioned above, you can develop a realistic budget for your veranda project. Remember that quality materials, professional installation by trained specialists and attention to detail contribute to the longevity and enjoyment of your veranda, making it a worthwhile investment for your home.
