We wanted some shade on a south-facing patio and after much searching noticed the Tuin verandas. We went for 4m width (so only 2 posts) but non-standard 3.5m depth. Anthracite with the milky polycarbonate roof.
This is quite a complicated structure to erect (instructions in Dutch don't help). I employed an experienced builder and it took him-with me helping at various points- 15 hours. To be fair, that included removing wall tiles and installing lead flashing plus the inevitable groundwork but I still wouldn't call this an easy DIY job.
You must have the right tools, including sturdy props as shown in the video.
The finished product is well worth the trouble. It looks really classy and is clearly a quality product. My builder was very impressed with the design and the absence of corner-cutting. It's a proper structure, not a cheap lean-to. Given the quality, I reckon the price is very reasonable.
Ordering and delivery went without a hitch.
Overall, highly recommended.

My veranda is 2.5M x 6M and it arrived well packaged on a single pallet. Unpacking takes time as the list is in Dutch.
I had to assemble on my own which had its challenges due to the weather but it was done in three days.
It helped tremendously having a plan that was sent time at the time of the initial order. Only a couple of minor points. The drawing shows that the hole for the leaf trap is 82mm ? Included with the kit was a 83mm hole saw ?
The only other confusion was the tape for the poly carbonate sheets? They arrived all cut to length great but the drawing does not state the colours blue or white what goes where, a quick email sorted the problem.
There is a good video to refer to but it is in need of updating as the product has been improved.
Overall I am very pleased with the product, it is good quality. My location can be subject to gusting winds so I opted for the thicker 3mm posts and corner braces. Probably overkill but the the structure is solid and looks good.
I would recommend this veranda to anybody with some D.I.Y skills and confidence otherwise get help.

By far one of the best purchases we have made for our garden. The Veranda was delivered on time and took just a weekend to construct. Although the instructions printed in English would have helped to speed up the process. All in all we are extremely happy with the product and the service from Tuin.

My experience with Tuin from making an initial enquiry through to delivery of my veranda and after sales was brilliant.
First and foremost the quality and price of the product compared to similar products was significantly better. Most competitors only do standard sizes or charge a big price premium for bespoke sizes but Tuin don't. First impressions of the product quality was the delivery vehicle and packaging were such that knew the product parts inside would be well protected for the journey from Holland to the UK. After unpacking and checking all the parts were there the installation was a doddle.
For my bespoke size veranda I needed some help and advice from the customer service who always responded promptly. We are so please with the outcome. The veranda looks stunning and adds great value to our garden and patio area.
Thank you for everything to all the team at TUIN !

Haven't put it up yet, but it was delivered on Monday by a friendly driver (he even helped us get it out of the pallet and under our car port in exchange for a cup of tea!) and looks great. Very good quality and we're looking forward to assembling it at the weekend, weather permitting.
