Verandahs - Holland Park

VERANDAH addition exceded expectations

"Wanting it was one thing. Knowing how to do it and go about it was another". That was the problem facing Anne Youles when she was talking about a new verandah at the front of her Holland Park home.

"I had always thought that the front of the house was an ideal location for a new verandah to open up the house and take advantage of the views. However I knew that I needed help to create the right solution," said Anne.

"I went to the Home Show to see what I could find. I had an open mind and no preconceived ideas.

"I looked at most companies which did this sort of work and was extremely impressed with The Pergola Centre. Their display was most professional and their range of "before" and "after" photos showed amazing transformations. I arranged for an on-site appointment.

"When their man came, it was almost as though we hadn't left the display as the same professionalism shone through.

"Once he saw the house and listened to my ideas and aspirations, he seemed to know exactly what to do. He told me what he thought would work. He also gave me some other options, but explained that they were far inferior to his first suggestion.

"I accepted his recommendation and am so glad that I did.

"Even though I was entering a new area of expertise, I always felt comfortable with the situation. The entire team was very helpful and I was kept fully informed of progress both before and during construction. Everything went exactly as they said it would.

"The finished project has significantly exceeded my expectations. I knew that it was going to be good, but I didn't realize that it was going to be that good.

"If you hadn't seen the house before, you wouldn't know what had been done. To me, that's fantastic," said Anne.

Naturally, we also are pleased that Anne is happy as that is our objective. Our company policy is to treat people as we would like to be treated and treat each house as if it were our own.

The Pergola Centre has been designing and building verandahs, decks, patios and carports in and around Brisbane since 1979.
