Decking & Pergolas Quotes in Melbourne
Simple things can sometimes be more complex than they first appear. To make sure your deck blends seamlessly with the rest of your home, complementing it in both style and function, you’ll find Well Known Homes a great help in thinking things through as you start to plan your project.
The choice of materials is often the most crucial decision for a deck. We prefer to work with wood, and we’ll walk you through the range of options, pointing out the relative merits of imported merbau and various Australian hardwoods.
You’ll also need to consider access and convenience: Would French doors, sliders or some other solution, for instance, provide the perfect transition from inside to out? Do you need a wet area next to the barbecue to aid in washing up after dinner or a bigger bash? And don’t forget your pets: They may need the extra shelter from the elements that a covered deck can provide.
Pergolas need to work with your home and can do wonders to perk up a less-than-inspiring backside of a house. A cleverly designed pergola that reduces the amount of direct sun entering your home can help reduce air conditioning bills as well as provide shade when you use your deck.
You may even find that the solid roof of a verandah is the solution to the year-round functionality you seek. Clear and tinted polycarbonate and colorbonded corrugated iron bring very different qualities to an outdoor living space, and we’ll help you find the solution (or combination) that works best for you.
Don’t forget, though, that the best-laid plans require a firm foundation. With Well Known Homes, you can be sure we’ll get the drainage sorted, the stumping done right, and the structure well framed using treated exterior-grade pine—with everything built to code. Before you know it, and with minimal disruption, you’ll be living that good life in your very own outdoor room.
