Carports Edinburgh

You might have observed an increase in carports popping up in your neighbourhood. Carports provide a flexible option to traditional garages. They offer protection from the elements like wind, rain, snow, and sun’s heat, keeping your vehicles safe. Whether it’s a car, motorcycle, motorhome, caravan, or any other vehicle, carports keep them nearby and off the street. Plus, you can choose carports designed for 1, 2, or even 3 cars.

What are Carports?

Carports are structures with roofs supported by posts or columns, designed to shelter your car, motorbike, or other vehicles. While often attached to a home, they can also be built adjacent to it, offering convenient access to your vehicle while shielding it from weather conditions.

These durable and permanent structures are not only for residential use but are also suitable for businesses, schools, hospitals, and various other settings. Particularly popular among homeowners with limited space for a traditional garage, carports offer peace of mind by keeping vehicles off the street and protected from weather damage. They can accommodate vehicles of any size and can be customised to fit specific vehicle types.

Moreover, carports have versatile uses beyond vehicle protection, providing shade and weather shelter for outdoor spaces at both homes and businesses.

Types Of Carport Edinburgh

Adding a carport to your home not only enhances its value but also offers a range of options to match your specific needs. With various roofing materials to choose from, selecting the right carport roofing can be a bit overwhelming. We aim to guide you through the available options to help you make an informed decision.

You can select from materials like timber, metal, stainless steel, glass, polycarbonate panels, and more. Continue reading to gather ideas, and feel free to reach out to us later for personalised assistance in designing a carport that perfectly suits your needs.

Timber Carports

Choosing the right wood is crucial when constructing a carport. Opt for high quality, durable timber to ensure the longevity of your structure. It’s essential to use treated timber that can withstand rot and resist termite or insect infestations.

Reach out to us for expert advice on selecting sustainable timber options. While some woods may appear cost effective initially, they may lack durability and strength in the long run, making them less advisable choices for your carport.

Stainless steel carports with polycarbonate panels (for roof)

Stainless steel carports often integrate seamlessly with existing buildings. The choice of structure is entirely yours, so take your time to explore and learn more. Polycarbonate sheets are also an excellent option for carports due to their strength and durability.

These lightweight and cost-effective sheets are a more affordable roofing option for carports compared to glass. They are weather resistant, impact-proof, and easier to install than some other alternatives.

Metal Cladding Roof

The cladding for your carport is crafted from galvanised steel, known for its durability and longevity. Available in corrugated industrial and tile effect roofing sheets, these steel claddings offer robust protection. When discussing your options with us, you can explore different styles, colors, and finishes to suit your preferences.

Not only are they easy to install, but they also require minimal maintenance and can last for decades, making them a reliable choice for your carport.

PVC Roofing Sheets

High quality PVC are a great budget option for carport roofs. They are light weight, easy to install, and last around 10 years.

GRP Roofing Sheets

GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic) roofing sheets offer a durable and cost effective option for your carport. Available in a corrugated profile, these sheets allow up to 92% light transmission while lasting for approximately 10 years. If you’re on a tight budget, this is a practical choice for your carport.

Plastic Roof Tiles

Lightweight roof tiles made from synthetic plastic are ideal for lightweight timber structures such as carports. They are light, quick to install and can last for 30 years with limited maintenance.
