Colorbond Steel Verandahs Are Built To Last.
If you are looking to create an outdoor living area in your garden, to relax and enjoy all year round, consider having a Colorbond verandah built by licensed builders and landscapers Visual Landscape Gardening. This article looks at the features and benefits a Colorbond verandah has over a wooden verandah for Adelaide homes and gardens.
Colorbond Steel Verandah Benefits.
- Resists peeling under Adelaide’s hot Sun,
- it’s non-combustible,
- resistant to corrosion and termites,
- is low maintenance over a long life,
- design requires fewer posts & rafters,
- choice of Colorbond colours.
Steel is a stronger material than wood, so building a verandah made from Colorbond steel means you can span greater distances; using less upright supporting posts and rafters in the roof. Adding fans and lighting is easy to have installed, with electrical wiring concealed for a cleaner look. Your Colorbond steel verandah can also be designed to cover any area or shape; rectangular or curved creating an outdoor living area unique to your needs and lifestyle.
Colorbond Verandah Tips:
When looking at verandah roof options, it is important to consider how much light and how much heat the roofing material allows through, especially during the Summer months.
It is also worth deciding what floor you will have under your verandah before it is built. Water run-off from your roof gutters will most probably need storm water connection and is best done before the flooring is laid; particularly if concrete or pavers are to be laid.
Paving under a verandah is a popular choice with many paving design options available. Verandah pavers can be made from concrete or clay, depending on the look your are wanting to achieve and the weight of traffic the pavers will have to support.
Verandah prices will depend on the total area you are wanting to cover, the roof design and roofing material chosen. Colorbond verandah prices will be more expensive than verandas made from wood, but when you consider the life of the verandah, a steel verandah will be more cost effective in the long run with much lower and fewer maintenance costs associated with them.
Verandah builders should be licensed to carry out all aspects of construction of your Colorbond verandah.
