How To Maintain Your Veranda During Winter

Winter is truly upon us, and if you have a veranda, you may be wondering how to take care of it during the colder months. Winter can take a toll on your outdoor spaces and without proper maintenance, the cold weather can cause damaged to your veranda, making it an unpleasant space to use.

It’s important to take care of your veranda, especially before and during winter to help preserve its longevity and functionality. Fortunately, there are a few simple steps you can take to ensure your veranda is well-maintained during the winter months.

Regularly Clean Your Veranda

The first step to maintaining your veranda is to clean any debris or dirt. Cleaning should be done at least once a year. When cleaning your veranda, use lukewarm water with a non abrasive cleaning product and wash the profiles and roofing sheets using a soft brush or sponge.

During the Autumn season, your veranda can accumulate more debris than normal. When this happens, remove any leaves, twigs, or other debris that has accumulated on and around your veranda. This will help ensure the area remains free of pests, look cleaner, and prevent moisture build-up and potential damage.

When it snows, try to remove accumulated snow from the roof of your veranda where possible. This will help to avoid potential damage from the extra weight and ice formation.

Important: never use abrasives, aggressive cleaners or a pressure washer on your veranda.

Steps To Winter-Proofing Your Veranda

If you’re hoping to use your veranda during winter, there are few changes you can make to ensure you’re comfortable.

  • Firstly, consider installing clear glass panels or curtains to create a wind barrier, while still allowing in natural light. By doing this, you can keep your veranda comfortable and cosy, even during the coldest months.
  • Make sure there is appropriate lighting on your veranda. By installing outdoor lights, your outdoor space will be well lit and safe when using it during the evening or night.
  • Finally, it’s important to protect your furniture and other items from the elements to avoid weather damage. Cover any furniture or items with a protective cover when not in use, to ensure that they remain in good condition throughout the winter.
