    Frequently asked questions

    Many canopies are offered via websites, DIY shops, etc. Of course, there are differences in materials, finish and design. Basically they are all canopies, but the detail and the use of materials often makes the difference.

    The construction: A Valk Veranda roof is based on the principle that the upright optimally supports the centre of gravity of the gutter. This means that the post or upright is at the same level as the back of the gutter. This transfers the force of the gutter load to the posts, preventing the gutter from tilting.

    The type of foundation required depends on the type of soil and the design of the roof. Our people can advise you on this through their experience.

    In most cases, we recommend that you have your canopy installed by a recognised specialist. They have the right technical knowledge and tools to properly finish the roof. Moreover, our people are well trained.

    In most cases, you do not need a permit to install a terrace canopy. On the environmental counter you can see within a few steps whether a permit is required in your municipality.

    No, this is not possible because the width of glass compartments is often smaller than that of polycarbonate sheets. Another important argument is that the canopy was initially designed for Polycarbonate sheets, which are lighter than glass.

    You can choose between a polycarbonate or glass roof. The advantage of glass is that it lets in a lot of light. In the Valk Veranda canopies, laminated safety glass is always used to prevent falling glass. Glass also has an infinite lifespan. Another option is polycarbonate. The advantage of this is that it is a light material, which makes a large span possible. Polycarbonate lets the light through between 22% and 82%. This depends on the thickness and design. The polycarbonate roof plates of Valk Veranda have a UV protective coating. This coating prevents yellowing and ageing.

    Valk Veranda terrace canopies have a CE quality mark, which is mandatory in Europe. In addition, we guarantee a 10-year insured warranty on the paintwork of our canopies and garden rooms. Moreover, we are Qualicoat certified. An Alu Care Set is available from the dealer to keep your canopy in good condition. All canopies are also provided with a static report. This can be requested after purchasing your terrace canopy. This static overview shows, among other things, the extent to which a gutter or roof beam deflects under a full snow load. This is an important document as you will be installing a structure on your house.

    Canopies can range from a simple roof to an exclusive garden room. It is important to determine what you want. Do you want to sit dry and sheltered in the summer? Or would you like to be able to enjoy a garden room well into the autumn? It is also important to consider the style of your home. Do you want a modern, classic or, for example, Victorian finish? Moreover, there is an unlimited choice of colours. The Valk Veranda terrace canopies and garden rooms are available in five standard colours, but all other RAL colours are applicable.

    We recommend that you view the possibilities in a showroom. This will give you a good idea of what is available on the market.

    Terrace canopies are available in numerous materials such as wood, plastic and aluminium. Aluminum offers many advantages; it is durable, easy to maintain, slim and stylish. An aluminum construction is also sturdy and stable and therefore offers strong resistance to wind and rain. However, there are many differences in the composition of aluminum (alloy) and its finish (coating). You can consult your supplier which composition is used and whether the materials are coated according to Qualicoat. The materials manufactured in Europe generally meet the requirements set.
