Veranda Do’s and Dont’s
Not all veranda designs suit all homes. It’s important that you talk with the Decker’s Deck Toronto design team before you start building a veranda so that your design complements your home’s current style.
Important factors to think about when designing your veranda are:
- How much light you want coming into your home
- How much heat will comes through
Verandas will protect your home from the elements, providing outdoor areas to relax and enjoy. Veranda’s facing west can attract a lot of heat, so you should consider some sort of heat blocking protection like blinds. The height of your veranda design can also play an important role. The higher your verandah design, the more the wind gets sucked into it. Some things that can adversely affect your Veranda’s design:
- Designed not to compliment your home
- Your backyards landscape hasn’t been taken into consideration
- Built without the correct building permits
- Using substandard material
