Carports are a fantastic addition to any home.
Whether you are looking to extend your existing covered garage or maybe even replace it altogether, carports are a fantastic addition to any home. Carports are a very popular choice for Australian homeowners, especially when you don’t need a covered garage.
Carports can be custom designed to suit any style you desire and can be a great feature to the façade of your home. Not only do they offer protection for your vehicles, they also provide added shelter for some external areas, such as your front porch.
Some homeowners prefer carports as they are convenient to use, as opposed to a covered garage with a remote control door.

Designed For You & Your Home
We work alongside you to create a structure that complements the existing features of your home. We understand that every customer has unique preferences, needs and specifications – that’s why each carport project we construct is entirely designed, customised and built to suit both you and your home. Does your home have a distinctive character? We can replicate these features to ensure the design of your new carport matches the original architecture of your home.
What Size Should It Be?
A standard double carport has a width of 5.4 to 6.0m, while a single carport is usually around 3.0m. As with the width, the depth in most cases, is also between 5.4 and 6.0m. However, if you have a four wheel drive or larger vehicle, it may be necessary to slightly increase these sizes. Want to cover your boat or caravan? No problem, we can increase the height to suit!
