The word “verandah“ comes from India and was modified from a Persian word “Bar-Amada”, which means a place which leads to out-side.
Two words from Sanskrit were combined and changed in Bengali and then borrowed by English. “Vahir” means “outside” and “Andar” means inside a room. It translates as something that is outdoors but inside a room or covered area.
Verandahs has become a common feature of both coastal and country architecture by the 1830’s and appeared in many colonial buildings dated around the 1850’s.
It may have been fashion trends and not necessity that was behind some designs. For example, some of the tiny, single-fronted, single-storey terraces in Sydney and Melbourne had very small south-facing verandahs that made the homes colder and darker.
Constructing a verandah in Adelaide is an integral part of many South Australian homes. From Federation and Victorian homes to the modern designs of today, verandahs have never gone out of fashion or lost their widespread appeal. Aside from being an attractive addition or feature to any home, verandahs also do a great job, providing shade during our long, hot summers, a dry area during the wet winters and a great place to just sit and relax.
In previous eras, most verandahs were made from timber and galvanized iron and reinforced with brick supports. They were usually round or curved and designed primarily to protect homes from extreme weather.
These days, verandahs are far more versatile. While still protecting our homes, they have also become a place for entertaining, an extension of our existing home and a great area to invite family and friends around.
The style and size of verandahs in Adelaide has also evolved to include domed or pitched roofs, square or rectangular shapes and all types of structural supports. Basically, you can customize your design to fit the space that you have.

While some outdoor feature that you may add to your property are not true additions to your property, a verandah will be permanently attached to your home’s exterior. More than that, most verandahs will have an extension of the roof line, and the same materials used on the main structure’s roof may need to be used for the roof of the verandah. This will impact the overall curb appeal of the property as well as it value and condition, and you do not want to trust just any company to work on your home’s roof.
