What is a Verandah?

A veranda is an outdoor structure or extension that is often roofed, open air with some railings on the front and the sides that serve as the area’s enclosure. It is also sometimes referred to as portico, cloister, open gallery, or porch. Verandahs can be customised based on your needs and budget. You can have it basic or super stylish – the options for designs are limitless!
