  • A choice of posts, columns or brick piers designed to match the style of your house
  • A range of skylights that will help minimise the loss of light.
  • Ceiling fans and downlights with dimmer switch to really create the desired mood.
  • Feature render wall
  • Stylish screens to help close the verandah and create a more intimate and private space.
  • Solid walls with options on cladding to provide protection from the weather
  • Exposed or hidden gutters for a sleek look

We can provide you with all options and a fixed price quotation to ensure that your new alfresco structure is everything you imagined and more.
