How to Protect Your Outdoor Oasis From Melbourne’s Unpredictable Weather Conditions

One of the best things about having your own humble abode is being able to bring guests over and entertain. However, with Melbourne’s severely unpredictable weather and harsh elements, this can make entertaining a tiresome chore without the right weather protection. What happens when you’ve planned a BBQ with your nearest and dearest and it starts raining? Read on to discover how you can protect your outdoor space from Melbourne’s fickle climate.

1. Roofing

Generally, most outdoor areas will have a roof, or at least will be partially shaded by a roof, to protect you from the beating sun or the penetrating rain should you need it. As well as this, a roof will protect any furniture or valuables you have in your outdoor entertaining area, such as tables, chairs or a barbeque.

2. Alternative protection

There is a wide range of alternative protection methods that can be used in conjunction with roofing or on their own. For example, here at All Weather Blinds, we can work with you to create a functional and visually appealing outdoor living space in line with your existing design and décor. We can help you design customised outdoor blinds to suit any outdoor oasis.

3. Keep an eye out for rust

If you have any metal items in your outdoor entertaining area, be sure to keep a close eye on them. If you do see rust forming, make sure you remove it as soon as possible. This will reduce the risk of rust spreading and causing further damage.

4. Cover it up or put it away

If you haven’t yet invested in roofing or outdoor blinds, it’s always a safe bet to cover up your furniture or store it inside when you’re not using it. If storing the furniture inside is not an option, invest in a properly fitting cover that won’t blow off or let water in. This will safeguard, to the best of your ability, your outdoor belongings against any damage.

5. Ensure wood is coated

A relatively temperamental material if not kept well, wood will deteriorate rapidly if uncoated. For the wood surface of your deck and any wooden furniture you might have, it is important to apply oil at least once a year. Just be sure to give your deck or furniture a good clean before applying any oil treatment.

Depending on the climate that you reside in, these tips may apply or you may need even further protection for your outdoor area. If you are interested in adding outdoor blinds to your outdoor oasis, give All Weather Blinds a call today.

What our customers say

Highly recommend All Weather Blinds! Very competitive prices, so easy to communicate with from the office staff who follows through with enquiries to installers. My install was over a year ago and had a power outage. The blind would only stop 3/4 of the way down. They talked me through how to fix it over the phone, were so patient and in a few minutes it was fixed. Thanks for looking after your customers.
