The different types of conservatory

Verandas are an excellent way to enjoy the outdoors while being protected from the elements. There are two main types: classic and retractable.

Classic verandas

These are real extra rooms, in the sense that they require foundations and fixed walls. They can often be built at the same time as your home, or added later. Classic verandas are generally made of wood, aluminum or PVC, and feature fixed glass panes.

Retractable patio covers

Conversely, retractable verandas can be opened and closed as required. They are ideal for climates with both hot summers and rainy winters. They can be opened to let in the sun and fresh air when it’s hot, and closed to keep out the rain when it’s cold. As a result, these modern retractable shelters offer the best of both worlds, making them the ideal choice.

What’s more, they open directly onto your garden, ideal for summer evenings with family and friends.
