Size: Supplying an appropriate size to cater for the furniture and use in the presence of you, your family and/or guests is a must. If you've got a big family or friends, or occasions where you use the place for large functions, and the Verandah is the place you will use, then your needs will not be the same as the casual user. Your intended use will determine the size required for your verandah building project.
Shade & Light: Making sure that good light is available in the area is very crucial. Most times your interior light can be constrained by “completely roofed outside Verandahs”. Taking into consideration louver roofs (if there is available budget) or ensuring some skylights to supply filtered light will provide a balance. Where the Verandah will be situated is essential to ensuring an excellent result.
Open Space: Making sure there's an adjacent open space to the roofed Verandah will help make the entire place feels useful and balanced for all tasks. Adding shade to open places for daylight (especially in summer) will provide significant advantages to your Verandah.
Quality: Our experts at Timber Decking Now are of the knowledge that using quality products ensures a long lasting Verandah which also creates better visual aesthetics. Spending more on Quality initially will save you money in maintenance costs over the lifetime of your Verandah.
Permits: There’s nothing worse compared to council entering your property, giving you a “show cause” notice that can cost you $ thousands in retrospective permits or to fix or even remove the Verandah entirely. Getting appropriate plans and permits ensures your peace of mind is guaranteed. When selling your house, not having a valid Building Permit for your new Verandah 'will' be an issue.
Design: Getting the appropriate design can not only give usage advantages such as light, style and quality but also to add other benefits from ensuring your new Verandah blends in with your house from an architectural perspective to adding value to the total property of your house. Having a professional designer and building contractor will ensure you get the job done right and to your specific requirements.
Maintenance: Make sure you clean your gutters, both of your home and Verandah, to ensure water flows freely (rain) and check other places on your roof which may likely suffer from animal damage, wind, or plant refuse at least once a year. Cleaning down pipes, gutters, roofing, and any painted or metal construction will prolong the life of your project.
