Brisbane, Redlands, Logan and down to the Gold Coast.
Living in Queensland, it is all about relaxed living and making the most of our beautiful weather.
Like all Queenslanders, staying cool in summer is our main goal and in winter we crave the sunlight and warmth.
By creating different shade or living options in your backyard or front yard, you can start enjoying your alfresco space all year round.
Make sure you use a local expert when designing your patio or pergola for the Queensland weather.
Traditional materials used in other Australian states may not be suitable.
Your new garden structure needs to cope with thunderstorms, torrential rain, year round sun, high humidity, termites and our coastal areas have high salt content.
You may also be in a bushfire zone and need certain materials used.
Patio vs Pergola
When you start researching what you will build – You may wonder at what is the actual difference between the two.
A patio is an outdoor space with the intention of being used for dining and relaxation.
It is attached to your home and be on a paved or decked surface. In Australia we expect a patio to have a roof that offers protection from the sun and rain and this is where we want to place a BBQ or to install an outdoor kitchen area.
A pergola is typically a free standing garden feature that is not connected to the house. It is made of vertical posts that support cross-beams or sturdy lattice. This creates semi protected walkways, or seating areas.
In Australia pergolas can also have lightweight roofing materials such as aluminium sheeting or poly carbonate to offer some sun and rain protection.
Airflow and Patio Roof Styles
In summer the roof design must allow for the best airflow or you will be hotter sitting under your newly built out side living area than if you were sitting directly in the sun.
Roof height is important to stop hot air getting trapped and this is where getting the right patio design is vital.
A flat roof often will not give you the height needed.
A flyover roof does offer a higher ceiling option
Gabled or pitched roofs offer the highest ceiling height. Or you may decide to have a combination of roofing styles to create what will work best for you.
There is more roofing information on our patio and pergola page.
Other ways to increase airflow is to use louvers or ceiling fans
We have trusted electricians who can install the extra additions such as ceiling fans, lighting and you may want to consider extra options for your outdoor entertainment area.
We can design where a TV and sound system can be set up during the build or the outdoor drinks fridge.
This will save you money in the long run and you will not have to call back trades to get these installed at a later date.
BBQ placement is also a vital thing to consider and we can arrange for a plumber to install gas points.
But don't stop there - Maybe an outdoor kitchen is your dream and yes we can and are qualified to build an outdoor kitchen or cooking area.
Does Size Matter?
For once size is not important!!
We can handle all sized projects.
We install outdoor shade options for large commercial projects, houses on acreage and then right down to the smallest courtyard in suburbia.
With the modern backyard shrinking, we can make the most of a small area. By choosing the layout and right furniture we can make your small patio feel spacious.
We can design all deck areas including recommending which wood will be best for your needs, your location and your budget.
Some of the different decking timbers we work with are:
If your deck is raised, we can ensure that you have privacy from your neighbours.
This is easy is easy to do with different screening options and they all offer airflow and great aesthetics.
We are a one stop shop to creating the out door living that you are dreaming of.
Now that you have an idea of what you can create in your yard and before you race off to start pricing a Bunnings diy pergola kit be aware of what is required before you start.
Will I need Council Approval?
Most patios, pergolas and decks will require council approval. Local council building regulations are strict and with the use of aerial photography a new structure in your backyard is easily identified.
The last thing you want is to have to pull down a structure that does not meet council approval.
We can easily manage the whole approval process for you.
Do not use a builder who cannot help you with this process.
