Well obviously that is an important question. What does a veranda cost? A lot of people you know, when they get us out have no idea about the cost of these things. I can say that maybe the most cost effective design is a flat roof. And it will cost more if you are doing gables or curved roofs because there is more steel involved. And a curved roof will often go up in one day, other roofs can take longer, 2-3 day s. And that can be reflected in the cost.
It is a bit like asking what is a car cost. Do you want a Toyota or a Ferrari?
Exactly right. You get what you pay for you know.
But I think it could be stated right at the start. We are not talking hundreds of dollars. We are talking in the thousands of dollars.
Everyone seems to know what a swimming pool is going to cost them, what a top barbeque is going to cost them. You do get what you pay for with a veranda.
But it is not the hundreds of thousands of dollars
And it should be worth mentioning that the bigger those things become, the more cost effective it is.
And that does not mean it is getting cheaper as it gets bigger. It is just costing less per square metre
There is also quite a few different factors as well; like height and all these other things .
That is why we actually need to come out and look at the area. And then we can basically make an assessment and price it up accordingly
In some instances your house alone can really dictate the cost. You know the type of the house, the height of the fascias. Are you on a slope? Do we need to we need to use structural columns?
What the house is made of
What I will say in the open marketplace, our customers get the fairest price.
Look, you know what, at the end of the day, we are in a very competitive industry. And most of the time, the costs right through the industry they are pretty much more of a muchness. We are very competitive with our costs
Many customers say to me after their jobs have been done and I’ve been there to have a look at them the have said the quality way outlasts the price. That is the same old saying
You pay for what you get
Quality is more important than price
