The centre-to-centre distance between the roof beams of a Capella veranda is 1000 mm (1 metre). A roof with five one-metre sections has a total width of 5045 mm. The extra 45 mm is the distance from the centre of the beam to the outside of the beam, which is 22.5 mm; this extra width is at both ends, for a total of 45 mm. 

The Capella is perhpaps the very easiest of all our verandas to install simply because of the lighter profile sections and general handling when installing.
Like any of the veranda systems it is simply a wall plate, roof support bars and front support posts for the cross support beam which is also the rainwater gutter at the front.
The fornt support posts can be cut to lower the gutter profile and clear opening height at the front. You must lower the back wall plate to suit of course and maintain a pitch for the roof for the best rainwater dispersal.  Ideal pitch is 157mm for every metre of projection. See measure tab to the right for further information on this.

If your wall is straight and solid and you have a decent ground surface to either concrete in the front posts or create a concrete pad for each post and use the footplates then installation should be relatively simple to carry out.
You can buy pre cast concrete pads in our shop for the post supports which are set into the ground as required. Either a solid pad or one with holes for rainwater dsipersal into soakways or existing drainage systems.

We have a video to show the installation process (see video tab to the right here) and also installation instructions to review in our Downloads section above.

When measuring for your veranda system please be aware of the ideal pitch of the roof being a drop of 157mm for every 1 metre projection. The slope required on the roof is for efficient rainwater dispersal and has been calculated for this. The standard passage height of 2500mm for the underside of the gutter profile can be shortened by cutting the support posts as required on site.
Standard calculations are below for a 2500mm height to underside of guttering profile:

Projection Beam Length Distance from back wall profile
to inside of support posts
Height from ground to bottom
of gutter profile
Height from ground to bottom
of wall profile
2500mm 2470mm 2440mm 2500mm 2880mm
3000mm 2970mm 2930mm 2500mm 2960mm
3500mm 3470mm 3430mm 2500mm 3040mm
