The transformation from wasted space to entertainers paradise is complete at one of our final projects before Christmas.
A complete backyard makeover was in order for this home, going from an unusable sloped grassy hill with a small entertaining area, to a new fully functional entertainers backyard.
We utilised Stratco Coodlek Insulated roofing, rendered bulkheads with brick piers and a timber deck with 140mm Merbau decking boards.
We finished the project off with LED downlights, a ceiling fan, and side wall for privacy and so an inbuilt kitchen can be installed.
We also installed timber stairs to link the upper entertaining area with the lower gardens which have been redesigned to complete the whole backyard upgrade.
Do you have a new house but the builder hasn't incorporated a suitable outdoor space?
This newly developed area in Palm Beach only had a retractable fabric awning installed on each home. Certainly not suitable for the QLD storms or outdoor life we like to live!
In Style Patios helped this client design and build a permanent outdoor living zone that matches the home and development seamlessly - Bulkhead design patio. It also looks like it was there from the start!
We utilised parapet walls to hide any of the roof sheets and gutter, secretly installed the downpipe in the column so it cannot be seen from the outside and added a Stratco Cooldek Insulated roof. Everything was finished off with a rendered finish and painted to match the home.
The added LED downlights and fan also ensure that every moment outside is as comfortable as it can be.
WOW is the exactly word that describes the transformation of this outdoor zone.
This area previously had 2 shade sails providing some shaded space to their entertaining area, but if the weather turned, everything had to come inside.....including the party!
We transformed this area into a all year round, no matter the weather conditions entertaining oasis which ties in perfectly with the existing house. We utilised 350x350 Brick piers and 350x200 bulkheads all rendered and painted to match the property. Matched with Stratco Cooldek Insulated roofing, Stratco Edge Gutter and LED downlights and up/downlights to set off the mood nicely.
This site also had some tricky design restraints - an underground sewer line running along the back fence. This required us to taper the bulkhead patio to maximise the space, but also comply with local council rules.
Many new homes are built with small outdoor living areas which is not ideal for many Queensland Families where outdoor living is a priority.
This project in Upper Coomera backed onto a nature reserve so we had to design for this flat patio to blend with the natural surroundings in mind, but also staying modern to match the house.
We utilised Cooldek insulated roofing for its clean smooth ceiling, with steel beams to maximise the spans and reduce the number of posts.
We matched this with the natural Merbau/Kwilla 140mm x 140mm posts to tie in with the deck and natural surrounds.
One of our latest projects in Miami on the Gold Coast has showcased our clients design flair in the choices they made with this flyover Cooldek patio. This use of the Stratco Cooldek V-Groove profiled ceiling ties in with the surrounding materials in and outside of the home, while the black fan and posts add a modern touch alongside the earthy Merbau Beam.
While it's not a big zone, they have certainly maximised their outdoor space and ability to entertain outside.
The unmatched versatility of the Stratco Sunroof opening roof patio was the only choice for this waterfront property in Surfers Paradise.
The ultimate in flexibility to let allow the warm winters sun in OR to block out the harsh summer rays at the press of a button is the deciding factor for many.
Brightening your home when you want, and to the level you want cannot be achieved with any other system.
With an automatic rain sensor and Aluminium blades as standard on all Stratco Sunroof systems, it is a step above the rest!
Do you need another living room? A bigger kitchen or dinning room?
This HUGE Stratco Cooldek Flyover patio has nearly doubled the living space of this home and will be the busiest part of the home year round!
The 90x90 Merbau timber posts help the patio blend in with the natural surroundings and the added fans will ensure that hot summer days are a thing of the past.
We also added some Stratco Ambient blinds in the 5% fabric to help with added privacy from neighbouring properties.
Functionality is the key with our latest Cooldek Patio in Benowa.
The ever popular Stratco Cooldek Insulated roof was the best choice for this project which spans the entire width of the house.
Our client also wanted to increase their privacy as they wished and the addition of Stratco Ambient Blinds has done this in the best possible way.
With an ever growing family and the need for more carspaces our client wanted a design that was going to tie in with the existing house roof line and blend in with the surroundings.
The versatility of the Stratco Outback Multispan range allowed us to create a double Hip End to create a seamless design and there is no doubt that the strength and design of the Stratco Gable systems are leaps and bounds in front of the competition.
We also had a custom screen manufactured for the rear of the carport to help separate the car spaces from the pool area behind.
This modern Cooldek patio suits the area of this home flawlessly. Additionally, the all-white finish ties in ideally with the clean appearance of this Brisbane house.
The smaller under roof alfresco simply wasn't big enough for the Eight Mile Plains home owners requirements, so this extension has provided enough outdoor entertaining area for family gatherings.
The Stratco Traditional Gable is a versatile carport which provides a cost effective solution to protecting your vehicles, boats or caravan in Tallebudgera on the Gold Coast.
The Traditional Gable is a unique design to Stratco, which allows the front to be completely open. This allowing higher vehicle access, making it a carport suitable for many uses and types of vehicles.

The afternoon sun was beating through the main windows and into the clubhouse, making it uncomfortable every afternoon and limiting the use of their new facility.
Products of choice - Stratco Ambient Blinds with 1% fabric, automated with Somfy motors, and an automatic wind sensor to lift the blinds in high winds.

Absolutely love our automatic blinds also and will definitely be hanging outside more once our pool is completed.
I will not hesitate to recommend this company as they represent professionalism , efficiency and quality to its highest regard."

The patio looks fantastic and was very reasonably priced.

A great representation at a home in Reedy Creek of one of the best 'value for money' patio additions.
The forever popular Cooldek Insulated roof was paired with earthy 140 x 140 Merbau posts to complement the existing deck, and finished off with the modern Stratco Edge Gutter.
The flyover patio design provides additional head height to make the space feel open and breezy at this Gold Coast property.

This project has paired the Cooldek Insulated roof, with the Outback steel beam, and warm Merbau timber posts. This helps transform the outdoor patio into an additional family entertaining room at this Burleigh home.
"I can't speak highly enough of this companies professionalism.
We initially got 3 quotes for our patio and carport. In-Style Patio's and Decks weren't the cheapest, nor the most expensive, however we decided to go with them as they made us feel the most confident that we would be getting a great finished product.
Tye and Mike were fantastic to communicate with through the whole process. I never had to follow up, and they always turned up when they said they would.
Their team of installers were also really professional. Looking forward to using them again when we re-do the patio at the back of the house.
Keep up the great work guys."
~ Brooke, Coombabah
“Want to say thanks for everything you did for us, we are completely amazed by the end result and it's everything we wanted. The last minute variation to the beam colour was the right choice we feel and couldn't be happier.
The installers(Both Matt's and Craig) we on point and made sure we were happy during the whole process, finishing the job perfectly.
Once again, thanks for a fantastic job all round.”
~ Neil and Fumi, Southport
"Hi Mike & Tye,
I would just like to say we are extremely happy with our new patio. We would like to say a big thank you to yourself and Tye for your patience in getting the job started and also to the two men that did a fantastic job in erecting our patio.
Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas.

Sacred Heart School in Sandgate were the proud recipients of a new outdoor class room, featuring a Merbau timber deck and Insulated Roof. We also constructed a wall at the rear to mount a whiteboard to make the area more functional.
