Pergolas & Verandahs

A pergola is a garden feature forming a shaded walkway,  or entertaining area for the great Australian Barbeque. The pergola may also be an extension of a building, or serve as protection for an open terrace . Pergolas may link  or extend from a building’s door to an open garden feature such as an isolated terrace or pool. Freestanding pergolas, those not attached to a home or other structure, provide a sitting area that allows for breeze and light sun, but offers protection from the harsh glare of direct sunlight. Pergolas also give climbing plants a structure on which to grow

Modern pergola designs of wood rather than brick or stone pillars are more affordable and are increasing in popularity. Generally, pergolas are either made from a weather-resistant wood, such as Treated Pine or Hardwood and are painted or stained. These structures can also have a roof covering from a Laserlite material that comes in many colours.

A Verandah is a roofed opened gallery or porch. It is also described as an open pillared gallery, generally roofed. The Verandah frequently extends across the front ,back and sides of the main house. Generally covering a beautiful deck. Many different roofing types and colours can be used to enhance the finished look. The design can be what ever fits with look of the house.

The verandah has featured quite prominently in Australian vernacular architecture and first became widespread in colonial buildings during the 1850s. The Victorian Filigree architecture style is used by residential (particularly terraced houses in Australia and New Zealand) and commercial buildings (particularly hotels) across Australia and features decorative screens of wrought iron, cast iron “lace” or wood fretwork. The Queenslander is a style of residential construction in Queensland,  which is adapted to subtropical climates and characterized by its large verandas, often in the Filigree style.
