2 March 2022

Do you own a terrace, veranda or pergola? While these products are of excellent quality, they may be subject to natural wear and tear. Having your system inspected by a specialized technician means you can anticipate any repairs you may need to make, and minimize their impact. In this article, you’ll learn how the annual technical inspection of your veranda works, and how it can help you.

Technical inspection of verandas and pergolas: why?

Do you have a veranda or aluminium veranda ? So you’ve certainly alreadyexperienced their strength and solidity. Nevertheless, a certain amount of wear and tear can always occur, depending on various parameters.

Limiting the impact of natural wear and tear

Like all similar products, verandas and pergolas are subject to external conditions. Of course, they are designed to withstand them. But some of their components may be more or less affected by time, depending on their manufacturing material, exposure to sunlight or other external circumstances beyond your control.

It’s a natural process that particularly affects certain materials , such as the silicone used in gaskets. But it’s always a good idea to know in advance what adjustments, replacements or repairs you may need to make, so you can budget for them. That’s the whole point of the annual inspection.

Who is the annual maintenance service for?

At VERANDAIR, we offer this service to all our customers, whether they have a veranda, pergola or pool enclosure.

How are verandas and pergolas inspected?

It’s very simple: once a year, your VERANDAIR expert comes to your home to carry out the usual checks. This professional is a trained technician who knows your installation inside out. He’ll take the opportunity to give you all the advice and recommendations you need for proper conservatory maintenance.

What your specialist will look at

Your technician begins by observing the general condition of your veranda, before moving on to a detailed inspection.

It will effectively examine some twenty points, depending on the options and functionalities of your system. These checks concern :

  • Productopening, if retractable (roof, windows, etc.)
  • Guiding systems and stops
  • Seals
  • Closing elements (handles, locks, etc.)
  • Motorization
  • Lighting
  • Floor fixings

A full report

Following the examination, the technician draws up a technical inspection report containing his observations.

He will then give you his advice and any suggestions for improvement, such as changing a lock or cleaning the roof. If you need to make any minor adjustments, such as adding oil, he can take care of it on site.

Based on the findings, our technician will provide you with a detailed quotation directly. This way, when he leaves your home, you have a clear indication of the state of your installation and any adjustments or repairs that need to be made.

Extend the life of your veranda with regular cleaning

Did you know? Many VERANDAIR customers keep their patio enclosures in excellent condition, even 20 or 30 years after installation. And that’s largely thanks to regular cleaning.

Rest assured, there’s no need to call in the services of a company. A little spot cleaning is all it takes to keep your veranda or pergola in top condition.

That’s all there is to it!
