Enlivening your outdoor space with a classy Verandah is the perfect way to boost your home’s value and aesthetical appeal. While it’s something to have\n for sure, it also be a challenge if certain factors are ignored. It is key to invest time in designing something that fits all your entertainment or\n relaxation needs. Narrowing in on the exact shape, size, and even style of your pergola involves smart planning. Consider the following factors to\n ensure that you get to enjoy what you build!\n

Get a Strong Roof\n

\n

A durable roof is important for a variety of reasons, including the weather. Our gable roof designs have become popular owing to stability and beauty.\n Our trafficable insulated gable roofs can stand up to wind and other elements of the oft-changing Melbourne weather, without requiring extensive\n maintenance.

\n

Going with the Right Materials\n

\n

As you begin to plan and then build your new outdoor space, you’ll soon be overwhelmed by the variety of materials that you can choose from. Essentially,\n you should look for durability, longevity, warranty and how will they turn out in terms of appearance. Our experts can help you identify options\n that resonate with the existing theme of your house.

\n

What to Consider when Building\n

\n

There are a few things to ensure before starting the actual process of building. Permits, building codes and designs are just some of the things you\n need to tick off. Most structural building projects do require a Building Permit, and depending upon your local council, a further Planning Permit\n and other approvals may also be required. At Totally Outdoors, our experience allows us to be by your side to make sure everything is set up for\n a successful installation process.

\n

The Importance Of Hiring Professionals\n

\n

Some people mistakenly think that building an outdoor space can be somewhat of a DIY exercise. The reality is that it’s more than just a weekend project\n and entails precise measurements and use of specialized and proper materials to get the best outcome. Not having your verandah permitted and professionally\n installed could create untold amounts of expensive damage down the line.

\n

If you are looking to make alterations around your Melbourne home to maximize outdoor living, there are multiple ways to do so. Depending on the\n available space and how you want to use it in terms of recreation or enjoyment, you can either opt for a verandah or a patio, or even both.\n To see which one might be your best choice, it’s important to note the differences and make a more educated decision, as some of these include\n making fairly permanent additions to the property.

\n

A verandah is an attached outdoor structure with a roof that runs along one or more sides of the home. Conversely, the patio is a paved recreation\n area that may be attached to the house or be freestanding on its own. It may or may not have a roof. These are typically popular for outdoor\n entertaining or simply relaxation. For a patio, there are plenty of factors to consider, including size, choice of pavers, permanent roof covering\n or retractable to suit the weather etc.

\n

A third option is adding a pergola, which too is an outdoor structure either attached to the house or standing on its own. However, unlike the\n patio, the pergola besides serving a purpose is often designed to enhance the aesthetics of a backyard or a garden. It could be large or small\n but will not have a roof. Often rafters with slats, shade fabric or simply open.

\n

While one or more of these features can be added to the house to optimally use open spaces, it may help to take professional help. This will ensure\n that you end up with something that meets your needs. Before choosing between the two you really need to look at your budget and get a quote\n for both. Sometimes space is an issue as well and a small, wooden patio might be more suitable for your home. You will also have to look at\n what features you want with your outdoor area and if you are looking at adding a sunroof option you will have to go with a pergola.

What People Are Saying


Hi Totally Outdoors,
Thank you so much for my beautiful verandah louvre closing roof. It looks amazing. Great job from start to finish. Everyone has been great. I will recommend Totally Outdoors to anyone considering a great outdoor space.

Angela Gangemi

Avondale Heights


Our project has been completed and we are both very very happy, it's just fantastic.
The 2 guys that did the construction, Paul & Shannon were the best!!!! I would love them to get heaps of praise from your company, we initially had some concerns re eve sheets etc, and the method to fix the brackets etc with our unusual roof; in removing not one breakage & replacing not one breakage!!!!! Just fantastic because Paul really was so careful. The garden didn't suffer at all, because care was taken. They were great, I hope they get a huge Xmas bonus, totally deserved. Please pass on our thanks to Cameron too.
If Jay is in the area, or Ross, they would be most welcome to visit to see the finished job, just give me a call. they will be as pleased as we are and very proud.

On behalf of my wife Judy & myself, I write to express our delight with the deck that you built for us. Although the whole process took longer than expected, this was the result of delays with our council and not in any way your fault.
We found you to be efficient & pleasant to deal with at all times & the finished product exceeds our expectations. The team of Mik & Mike who actually built the deck are worthy of the highest commendation, absolute craftsmen, delightful to have around & careful to keep us posted with their schedule. This deck will last years, but should we need another one you would be the first people we would call on.

Thanks to the friendly and professional team at Totally Outdoors for a wonderful new carport. You were consultative, communicative and methodical in your service which made it a pleasure to do business with you.

Lee, Mark, Rick, Gary and Brendan were all fantastic to deal with and we absolutely love our Louvre Roof Verandah. Right from the initial drawing stage (fantastic quality images) to the end completion, Totally Outdoors were totally professional and kept us posted on a day to day basis regarding construction and when it would be completed. Competitive pricing matched with high quality workmanship made the whole process extremely easy. Highly recommend!!

Taylor Family

 


Leigh was our first contact at Totally Outdoors and he was a delight to deal with - the moment he stepped through the door. Following our meeting, he very promptly provided us with professional drawings and a quotation which perfectly matched our requirements. The job is now done and we are really happy! The workmanship by Brendan and Gary is top class. We have had many a projects done previously to compare with, with this being the most successful. The outdoor area is simply wonderful, and the action of the Eclipse Louvre Roof is very nice. The Merbau timber is what we wanted, and the combination of the cream capping just finishes it off in harmony to the rest of the home. Brendon and Gary worked with little interruption to us, and they cleaned up totally at completion. Really impressed! Looking closely at the work, all joins [timber, guttering, capping, etc], just makes us so happy! Bravo to the Totally Outdoor Team; including Mark who managed our project from the start to the finish! Awesome job guys!

Steve & Simone

 


To the Totally Outdoors Team: Thank you for the hassle-free, professional service and great experience from a reputable builder! The building surveyor have reiterated that we got one of the best builder and we were elated and proud to know. The building permit only took 2 weeks. The actual building stage just took weeks. The tradesmen did not leave a single rubbish/mess. Every call made was accommodated, every inquiry answered professionally yet the service was friendly. It was a smooth transaction from start to end. If given the chance to build another home, we will never think twice who to go for. THANK you for the exceptional transformation you have made to our simple home. Can't wait to show it to friends and relatives. Can't wait to recommend you!
