Colorbond® Verandas or Timber Verandas Enhance Outdoor Living.
A verandah attached to homes in Adelaide can provide the perfect protection from the Sun and rain, allowing you to relax outside and admire your garden, enjoy a BBQ with the family or entertain with friends.
The material your verandah is made from can be treated timber or Colorbond®, depending on your budget restraints, aesthetic appeal and how much maintenance you are wanting to do in the future.
Timber verandas are made using treated timber so that the wood is protected from water and termites. A roof truss with beams is required for strength and to support the roofing material if you choose a gabled roof.
A cheaper option is to have a flat roof either parallel with the ground or sloping back to the house wall; eliminating the need to have a gutter at the front.
Visual Landscape Gardening are licensed to build timber verandas, install the guttering and connect all down pipes to your storm water, even lay pavers or concrete to the floor of your verandah for you.
For those who wish for maintenance free verandas, a Colorbond® verandah is the answer. Built using steel, they are available to accommodate many different roofing designs; flat, gabled or even curved, something a timber verandah cannot. There is a wide range of colours, allowing you to match the colour to your existing walls; removing the need to paint.
Verandah Roofing Options.
Verandas; either made from timber or Colorbond® steel can be roofed with a variety of materials. There are many manufacturers of poly carbonate sheeting that block out the Sun’s harsh UV rays as well as some heat; varying from manufacturer to manufacturer as well as the colour chosen. Poly carbonate sheeting is the most popular for verandas in Adelaide because it allows an amount of light to come through, avoiding the need for artificial lights during the day, however solid Colorbond® roofing panel sheets can be installed.
