    What is an Overhang glass veranda

    An overhang glass veranda is a roofed, open-air structure attached to the front, side, or back of your house or apartment building. The roof of the veranda is made of glass and supported by aluminium columns.

    Overhangs have been around since the early 1900s with Queen Victoria popularising them for country homes including Balmoral Castle in Scotland. As simple as that sounds, an overhang glass veranda is one of the most popular ways to expand the living space in your home or cottage.

    The Outdoor Living Group overhang glass verandas come in different types, with different railing styles to choose from. All can be customised upon request. Whatever your style or choice is, The Outdoor Living Group is there to help. Book a free site survey with us today.

    What makes our Overhang glass veranda different?

    When it comes to investing in an overhang glass veranda that is distinct and durable, you can count on The Outdoor Living Group to deliver. Our overhang glass verandas combine sunny, designer quality glass on the inside and durable aluminium on the outside. Top features of our overhang glass veranda include:

    Elegant design and seamless looks

    Our Overhang glass verandas not only maintain the seamless look of your home but also provide you with extraordinary views and a convenient way to use the additional space around your home. The non-obtrusive design blends with the existing facade of your property and gives a natural feel to your home. Every single component is carefully chosen to create a look that is as clean and seamless as possible. We can custom design your veranda to suit your home, adding a beautiful architectural feature in any location you desire.

    Tempered Low-E glass

    The Outdoor Living Group takes pride in its uncompromising quality. Our overhang verandas are roofed with Tempered Low-E glass. This is one of the strongest types of glass on the market today. They withstand the elements and offer a clear view of the outside, brightening up your interior while adding a touch of sophistication.

    Integrated rain gutter system

    Our overhang glass verandas feature a custom-designed rain gutter system that captures and channels water under the patio floor. The system is integrated into our aluminium framing allowing every component to be easily cleaned.

    As our rain gutter system is hidden from view, these glass verandas allow you to fully enjoy your outdoor area without any intrusions. The gutter system far exceeds any rain screen requirements, requiring only an occasional power spray wash to keep it operating at peak performance. No dams or water diversion are required.

    Modular construction

    Our verandas are designed specifically with expansion in mind. Their modular, expendable construction makes it simple to add extensions and extra panels. You can even remove sections of the roof for added light and ventilation.

    Not only are they constructed to expand but we also offer the option to purchase additional components from us for any future expansions you may choose to make.

    LED lighting for aesthetic view

    LED lighting illuminates the glass veranda from its underside, giving either a diffused glow or a more defined light as you prefer. This option is also suitable for conservatory lighting.

    Whether it was for entertaining friends or just relaxing, the blue hue of the lighting provided a pleasing atmosphere and added an extra touch of class to our units. Lights can be turned off if so desired.

    Built-in awning attached

    Our overhang verandas have a built-in awning attached for more living space. The overhanging roof maximizes the use of the canopy without obstructing views of the garden, sky or nearby hills.

    Powder-coated anodized aluminium frames

    We design and build our verandas using structural grade aluminium that has been engineered to resist cold-flow cracking. Our powder-coated anodized frames are corrosion-resistant and UV resistant for a long product life without requiring costly maintenance.

    Proprietary flange profile

    Our proprietary flange profile eliminates leak points and minimizes wind uplift. The rounded sill design adds a graceful scale to the overhang and allows for maximum glass area without causing water pooling.

    Our different types of overhang glass veranda

    The Outdoor Living Group has multiple overhang glass veranda categories. This allows you to choose the right products for your needs. There are three types – projecting, recessed and cantilevered.

    Projecting overhang

    A projecting overhang is as its name suggests; a veranda that protrudes out from the building. Projecting overhangs sometimes have a symmetrical and spare design with proper architectural solutions, so you can hide the supporting construction under the floor of your balcony and receive only clean lines, after which the glass will be attached by special brackets.

    Recessed overhang

    The recessed type of overhang is created by building a deck or balcony directly off the structural glass wall. The section that overhangs is the one that remains exposed to the outside.

    This type of overhang can be used for homes with elevations on uneven terrain, in areas where greater exposure is desired for the flood of natural light or when there are no restrictions in the building code regarding floor area ratio (FAR) when working with curved facades.

    Cantilevered overhang

    A cantilevered overhang is a projection from the roof or upper floor of a building, supported primarily by the structure below. It can be used as an architectural feature especially when it extends towards the outside and creates an arc, rather than being fully enclosed.

    What are the benefits of an overhang glass veranda?

    How can a veranda help you? A glass overhang is more than just a patio enclosure; it’s a multifunctional addition that not only enhances your exterior but also gives you additional space for relaxing and entertaining. Why not transform your outdoor living space with an overhang veranda? Below are a few benefits you stand to gain when you install an overhang glass veranda.

    Improves the aesthetics of your property

    The appearance of your home is the first thing that catches people’s attention. An overhang glass veranda has the ability to change the look and feel of any property. Being able to enjoy an outdoor area without bugs and pests is priceless! Overhang Glass Verandas are a new way of enjoying your home in a unique, modern way.

    Extends your living space

    It gives you a bigger outdoor living area. Some people also use it as their dining room so they can enjoy their food and meals in the outdoor garden or balcony.

    With an overhang glass veranda, you get the benefit of more natural light and views, protected from the elements but still allowing the breeze to flow through.

    Serves as a roof over your patio

    Everyone loves to enjoy a nice sunny afternoon on the patio, but that’s not always possible. The summer sun can be brutal but with an overhang glass veranda, you will be able to shade off every inch of your outdoor space.

    Overhang verandas provide more shade than a regular patio umbrella.

    They also allow for airflow and extend the outdoor living season by providing a cooler area for you to relax.

    Allows you to enjoy your garden and the view of nature above

    Allowing you to enjoy your garden and the natural view over the top of your property is a key benefit of installing an overhang glass veranda. A glass overhang gives people a connection to the sky, whether that’s a bird-watching area or an area for them to relax and enjoy their garden while they look up.

    Provides protection from weather

    An overhang glass veranda is a good way to create a covered area on your outdoor patio that offers shelter from the elements, with its aluminium frame and tempered glass panels.

    Adds value to your property

    Overhangs are a great way to add value to your property. You can create an outdoor area that is safe from the sun and rain, but still lets in plenty of natural light. This adds not only safety but also comfort for your family and guests.

    Low maintenance

    Low maintenance is one of the obvious benefits of an overhang veranda. The cover and integrated gutters help divert water away from the roof, ensuring that the roof system can last for many years without any repairs.

    Safe and secure

    Overhang glass veranda is designed to be safe and secure even in the event of high winds. The system’s unique design accommodates wind velocities of up to 200 km/hr (124 mph), more than four times the UK building code requirement for balconies, without allowing water penetration.
