Why Choose a Bullnose Verandah?

  • Reduce your electricity bills for good - With electricity costs on the rise, it's a smart move to give your air conditioner a rest and rely on more sustainable ways to cool your home. Once installed, your bullnose verandah won't cost you an arm and a leg every month like your air conditioner might!

  • Bullnose verandahs provide very effective insulation - The curve of a bullnose verandah cuts off direct sunlight and weather into your rooms. As a result, rooms behind a bullnose verandah remain surprisingly cool - even on notoriously hot Australian summer days.

  • Add real dollar value to your home - Adding a classic Australian bullnose verandah will add real value to your home, providing a pleasing outdoor living area that can be used by all the family. 

  • Bullnose verandahs are beautiful - Architecturally, the bullnose verandah is a lovely feature that enhances the asthetics of your home.

  • Environmentalists say that every home in Australia should have solar panels, a water tank and a bullnose verandah.
