    What is an eave, and what are the benefits of installing an eave?

    An eave is a shelter above the entrance to a building, supported by columns or walls underneath it. They are ideal for creating an area beneath which you can sit and relax with friends and family.
    Eaves help to protect the main structure of your home from rain damage. You can choose to have eaves installed on your existing roof or constructed as part of the initial building process. Eaves also allow the breeze to flow through your outdoor area as it comes in from beneath the building. You can utilize your eaves as a space for plants, an entertainment area or just as another place from where you can appreciate the view.

    Which eave suits my house?

    There are generally two types of eaves, boxed and cantilevered. 

    Cantilevered eaves: This is when the same amount of width recesses your eaves as the roof overhang on either side. Cantilever eaves are set out over the wall, like a canopy, allowing for plus-sized eaves above any doors or windows, giving you protection from the elements even when they are open. This type of construction is commonly used in houses with gabled roofs where the rafters run close to the wall.

    Boxed eaves:  Boxed eaves are usually found to be more practical. Their construction also gives you the opportunity to conceal downpipes and make your house look well proportioned. Boxed eaves are typically built over the timber rafters of a house, which also means they are more stable than ones that sit on top of brick walls.

    However, we only make what you recommend to us, not the other way around. We give you advice on what you want, whether it will work in your situation, and if so, how it can be done. Before installing an eave, you should know your roof pitch. This is because if you get it wrong, your eave will end up looking out of place or badly proportioned. The best way to check this is with a carpenters level. Through the use of spirit levels, these are very simple to use and can be done by anyone; however, if you are unsure what they exactly do, reach out to us at Pergolas Wloongong to help you. You should also ensure you have all the necessary permits and compliances before you begin the project. This is to make sure that your install will be on the right foot and it won’t come back to bite you later in the process. If you are unsure of where to start on this, speak with an expert at Pergolas Wollongong who can help you get compliant and ready.

    What is a good budget range for me to aim for when looking at installing an eave?

    The price of installation will vary depending on a few factors. These can include the size of the area you want to add an eave, what material you plan to use, and whether construction is required or not. Also, the price will depend on the location where you live. Areas with high crime rates may need special security lighting installed to ensure safety, which will naturally increase the price of the project. There are typically two different types of install that can be done on your eave. A free-standing eave is one that is not attached to the building and is generally sturdier. This again may increase the cost. Our prices are affordable, and we deliver products that are worth the price. Reach out to us so we can give you a free quote today!
