Spring has definitely sprung in Australia, and along the Eastern seaboard and South Australia in particular, we’ve experienced some weather extremes, with storms, high winds and bucket-loads of rain a regular visitor. The wild weather is a good reminder that if you’re considering building a new outdoor structure – whether it’s a carport, patio, pergola or verandah – to make sure it’s built to withstand the elements, now and well into the future.
A new outdoor structure – build it strong
The last thing you want is to have the roof of your patio blow off in the first decent storm, or your carport leak during rain. So, if you’re thinking of building a new outdoor structure, make sure you employ someone who you can trust to plan, design and build a structure that will give you hassle-free use now and well into the future:
- It starts with the planning. Make sure you have someone with the local knowledge of weather conditions and council regulations. For example, if you’re in a bushfire prone area, there will be special rules you’ll need to follow. Outside Concepts has 14 branches nationwide, run by locals who understand local conditions and are familiar with building regulations and local planning.
- Make sure your new outdoor structure is built using quality materials. At Outside Concepts, we never compromise on materials, but that doesn’t mean you’ll pay more. Our buying power means we can source these quality materials at competitive prices.
- It’s not just the materials that are important. Make sure your new outdoor structure is built by quality, licensed and insured people. We only use experienced tradespeople and professionals. In addition, all our branches operate under state-based licences and we carry $20 million in public liability insurance.
- Make sure the work is guaranteed. Outside Concepts provides a 10-year structural guarantee, so when we build your new outdoor structure, you can be assured that it will be structurally sound for at least 10 years. If something goes wrong we will fix it, free of charge.
It’s all about peace of mind. After all, when you’re finished building a new outdoor structure you should be ready to relax and enjoy it, not worry that it might blow down!
