There was once a time that a new veranda would be adorned with one of three options – metal, tiles or polycarbonate. Today, the number of options has exploded. In fact, there are so many Sydney verandah roofing ideas to consider that it can become confusing, which is why we’ve created a summary of the choices available.
Sydney verandah roof options
- Verandah roof ideas can be extremely simple. How simple? As simple as it can be – we’re talking no roof at all. This isn’t the best option for most homeowners, especially considering we can get quite a lot of rain in Sydney as well as blistering sunshine. However, the sans roof option does work for some.
- Another alternative is to have part of your Sydney verandah covered and part uncovered. The best of both worlds, if you like, with protection from the elements when you need it and no roof when you want to soak up the sun.
- A metal roof is and always will be a great option to cover a verandah. It’s relatively inexpensive, strong, durable and resistant to rust. Plus, it perfectly complements most houses.
- Similarly, a tiled roof is also a good choice. It will cost a bit more than some options, as the structure needs to be stronger to take the extra load. However, tiles are long-lasting, durable and a great look, particularly if your home is tiled.
- Polycarbonate is terrific choice, particularly if your Sydney verandah is in a dark area. The clear roofing sheets will let what natural light there is to flood the inside of your structure.
- For optimal climate control and extended verandah enjoyment, consider insulated roof panels. Typically featuring a polystyrene core sandwiched between a steel roofing sheet and an appealing underside, these panels enhance comfort in all seasons while offering an attractive interior ceiling finish for your Sydney verandah.
- If flexibility is your priority, explore louvred roofs for your structure. Available in various options, these roofs typically include louvre blades that can be effortlessly opened or closed with a touch of a button, providing absolute control over the elements.
- Another option for those valuing flexibility are retractable roofs. These roofs stack or retract when open, resembling the functionality of bi-fold doors. This option provides an adaptable and versatile choice for your Sydney verandah.
- For a cost-effective method to roof your verandah, which also introduces flexibility, consider an extendable awning. Offering the advantages of a retractable roof without the premium price tag, extendable awnings are a quick and easy way to enhance your verandah. For the ultimate in flexibility, choose an awning with a sensor that automatically opens in windy conditions to prevent damage and closes during sunny or rainy weather for optimal protection.
