Even Aussie singer John Williamson included the humble verandah as part of the perfect home in his classic ‘Home Among the Gum Trees’. And we’re fans of them too.

Addon Pergolas specialises in these great Australian icons and can provide a service that delivers the ultimate lifestyle improvement to your property.

As a family-run and owned business, we can deliver all the features your family needs for the ideal space designed for relaxation and entertainment. Best of all, our decking solutions are custom designed specifically for you, so we can work within your budget to ensure you get the right product at the right price.

Across all of our projects, we use only the finest quality materials and have decades of experience in the industry. This allows you peace of mind in knowing that the final will meet each of your lifestyle requirements.

Do you need a permit for verandah installations in Melbourne?

Under Victorian legislation, you need a building permit to construct one of these designs on your property. This goes for any model implemented across Melbourne’s eastern suburbs. Luckily, we can assist you with this process and provide an end-to-end solution, from initial consultation to the final construction and after-service care.

Let us help you with the red tape so you can enjoy your space sooner, all with the proper permits and permissions from the local council taken care of.

What’s the cost of building a verandah near me?

There is no set cost to building one of these designs, as it depends on the size, the scope and the materials used. Whether you are looking for a full wrap-around solution or just a small space to enjoy your morning coffee, we can assist with an option that meets your budget. Our products are designed for you, so we work with each of your specific specifications to ensure you’re delivered a result that’s on-brief and at a price point that suits you.

These innovations are also an investment, allowing you to increase the value of your Melbourne property across the board. No matter where you’re located in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs, these designs are the ultimate way to ramp up your appeal on the market.

Expansions and extensions

Is your existing structure starting to look tired and dated? Perhaps your family has grown, and you need more space to move around in.

We can help with all of your expansion and extension needs, breathing new life into your property and adding features to enhance your lifestyle. Additionally, no job is too big or small, so we can make your design to suit your individual brief and budget.

What materials do verandah builders use?

Across each project, we use quality materials to ensure your design stands the test of time and resists the impacts of the elements.  To do this, we actively use quality wood within each construction – including Merbau, Spotted Gum and Treated Pine. We are also able to use other woods and materials at your request.

Note: If your structure gets too much sun, we can assist with shade cloths and battens to help you control the level of light at different times of day. We also use Laserlite (polycarbonate corrugated sheets) on designs that require it, with Advanced Weatherguard technology that helps resist whatever Mother Nature chooses to throw at it.

How long does it take to build a verandah?

The size and complexity of design impacts how long it takes to complete a verandah installation. As Melbourne weather can be unpredictable, this can also play a role.

Generally, it takes about two to three months for the entire process – from initial consultation to final build and including getting the relevant permits. We are also aware of the impact on your life and will do everything we can to minimise disruption.

Contact our team on 0410 541 253 or email info@addonpergolas.com.au to discuss your options when it comes to these innovations. Moreover, we’re always available to assist you with any advice if you’re not sure where to start.
