Before and After Renovation Photos

Do you need to renovate or transform your home or outdoor living area?

Would you like a low maintenance steel structure to add valuable outdoor living area to your home, so you can entertain or enjoy more family time?

Many customers have renovated their outdoor living area with a SOL® Home Improvements structure such as a patio, verandah, awning, pergola or carport.

Below are a series of before and after renovation photos. These home renovation projects that may give you some inspiration if you are considering adding a stylish steel roof extension or living area to your home.

This red brick home had a gable roof verandah and elevated deck added.

The transclucent gable infill sheeting provides weather protection whilst still allowing filtered light under the structure.

What an amazing result!

Removing this tired, old verandah and replacing it with a light coloured, gable roof verandah immediately transformed this space into a more welcoming outdoor entertainment area.

Adding a shade structure to this  home has provided the owners with an area to entertain.

This combination roof awning includes a gable section to provide the feeling of height and open air, whilst protecting the owners and their BBQ area from harsh sunlight, so they can entertain year round.

Adding a carport extension to the front of this garage has provided this owner with the ability to cover their cars and use the garage for other purposes.

This flat roof carport is a cost effective solution that can be designed to suit your home and needs.

The owners of this new home recognised their need to enjoy more of their backyard.

Adding this flat awning with skylights was one of the first things they did to their garden, so they could enjoy protection from the elements.

A large combination roof pergola provides this customer with a significant space for outdoor living.

The smooth, glossy underside of the Stramit Sunset® roof sheet and skylights improve the performance and appearance of this structure.
