What is the difference between a Pergola and a Veranda?

The main difference that sets these two outdoor structures apart is their location requirements.


A pergola can be placed as a freestanding structure, whereas verandas need to be attached to your home to be structurally sound.


This is why they are commonly used as carports, or to create a luxury patio area that will seamlessly blend outdoor living to the comfort of your own home.


To see for yourself the differences between Pergolas, Verandas, and Awnings then why not take a visit to our showroom where our friendly team will be happy to discuss your needs and help you find what you are looking for?


Do Verandas Need Planning Permission?


As our verandas are installed onto your home, it’s no surprise many of us wonder if verandas require planning permission to build.


These sleek and stylish structures are an appealing addition to any home, and luckily you won’t usually need to get planning permission for these installations.


The Welsh Government website states that “Outbuildings are considered to be permitted development, not needing planning permission, subject to limits and conditions….. Verandas, balconies and raised platforms are not permitted where any part of the development would project more than 300mm above the surface of the ground below.”


Our professional team of specialists are here to help answer any questions you may have about installing a new garden veranda, so contact us today to find out more or visit our Llanelli showroom to view our range of outdoor living structures.
