25 Aug Installing A Veranda Patio Cover On A Bungalow
Installing a Veranda on a bungalow may involve some alterations to the Veranda design. Bungalows have limited height due to the overhanging fascia and soffit. A veranda must have a slope on the roof to allow the rain to run off successfully. A glass roof Veranda will require a minimum of a 5 degree slope on the roof which is 88mm for every metre depth. So the further you extend from the house into the garden the greater the fall on the roof. We are generally able to fit up to 3500mm deep Verandas on most bungalows while maintaining a minimum 2100mm minimum height at the lowest point.
The easiest way to facilitate additional height is to fit the roof onto the fascia board under the gutters on the house roof. This will allow about an additional 100mm headroom.
If you are concerned about the available height on your home why not get in touch with our team at the Brightspace office, 045 844002 or info @brightspace.ie, just send us a photo of your home and we will get to work for you.
Here are some examples of recent installations where we fitted the Veranda on the fascia boards to give additional height.
