Verandahs - Expert Deck Builders Wollongong

What are verandahs, and what is their function?

White and pink coloured verandah

Verandahs are a type of porch that is attached to the front or side of a house. They are ideal for people to relax, catch up with friends and family, have a drink on the weekend, or enjoy the beautiful weather. Verandahs come in different shapes and sizes, but they often have a roof and pillars. Verandahs offer the perfect place to spend time with friends and family outside on a sunny weekend afternoon or evening. People can relax and enjoy spending time together in an outdoor environment. They are generally attached to the front of the house but can also be found offside entrances of houses or even large verandahs which run along an entire side of a home.

    The advantages of having a verandah

    The advantage of having a verandah built is having a cosy outdoor area to entertain family and friends. Having a verandah increases the value of your home due to an appealing design that is not commonly seen in most houses. A verandah allows you to have an outdoor flow from the inside of your house, which is convenient for keeping doors open on lovely days, giving you somewhere to sit outside without having to sit on your lawn or a nearby park bench. The main thing that makes verandahs are beneficial is open-plan living which allows you to have a party outside without having to relocate everyone inside because it starts getting dark, cold or the mosquitoes come out. Verandahs are also beneficial because they generally divert attention away from negative aspects of a house, such as old paintwork, curtains, etc.

    Do I need council approval to build a verandah?

    Yes. For any verandah, you will need council approval because it is considered a building structure. So please don’t leave it to the last minute. We can get this for you by organising a drawing and taking it to the council. Please enquire when we organise your quote about drawings, and if necessary we will arrange these arrangements for you.

    Do you offer custom designs?

    At Decking Wollongong, we offer various verandah types; L-shaped, U-shaped, wraparounds etc., so if you have an idea of what you would like, please let us know, and we will make it come to life.

    When should I build a verandah?

    The best time to build your verandah is in the early stages of building your home. However, this will depend on individual circumstances and budgets. It can be built later if required though this will pose an extra cost.
