We look after the details with a complete, best quality package service, delivered with care

Why Choose Outside Structures?

If you are looking for a Melbourne deck, verandah, pergola, balcony or carport builder, you have come to the right place. We suit clients seeking a reliable, design oriented, quality builder,  skilled in the delivery of al-fresco & patio lifestyle projects.


We are different than most deck, verandah, pergola or  carport builders - we are skilled at, and focus on the design, from initial consultation through to completion.


We apply the same care, attention to detail, & the same highest standards to the simplest rectangular deck, as we do to the most complex al-fresco or patio project.

The architectural & building details that arise during the course of construction, are as important to the project outcome as the overall design. We make sure we get these right.


The designer of the project (Rob) also builds the project. This guarantees quality of workmanship, & you only ever have to deal with the one person, ensuring clear, open communication.


The detail in our quotations, including design plans & specification (for decking), ensures a complete understanding of what will be provided in your project delivery.

If you have a deck, pergola, verandah, balcony or carport in need of refurbishment, extension or replacement, we are happy to do that too.


We only build in timber. Timber produces more robust looking structures that match the scale & qualities of the normal home, and has a warmth & character that metal does not.


It is also a forgiving & enjoyable material to work with.


Projects built with the main structural elements in steel or aluminium tend to look 'scrawny' and lightweight.
