How Would You Like To Get Started
A open carport is a covered structure with a roof that is open on all sides and in most cases it is not attached to another structure and stands alone. A carport is designed to protect all types of vehicles from the weather elements.
Installing a carport to protect your vehicle from extreme heat, sun damage, tropical storms and hail is a good investment. Not only to protect the asset but a carport may also add value to your home.
Carports come in various sizes and configurations whether you need to protect a single vehicle or multiple vehicles. The height of the detached carport can also be adjusted to accommodate larger vehicles like buses, tractors, and heavy machinery.
As an open carport does not have sides or walls, it is usually less expensive than other structures.
Being open on all sides, it can easily be used for other purposes, such as entertaining or sports.
The vehicles are protected from weather above and have a safe place to reside.
Carports not only protect cars (as the name might imply) – you can also protect other important assets such as: motor homes, caravans, camper trailers, boats, trailers, horse floats, 4WDs, motorcycles, bicycles, buses, tractors and farm equipment, and heavy machinery.
The open carport itself can also be used for other purposes as well (when vehicles are elsewhere) – outdoor entertaining, barbecues, children’s parties, gardening, drying washing on wet days etc.
Keep in mind that at Diamond Patios we use a wooden frame and the roof is colorbond, corrugated, clear multiwall, clear corrugated, or a combination of roofing types.
These images below are just to show you how they could be positioned.
Grand Entrance to the home
These open carports mirror the home décor and design, but they are not attached to the home itself and are open on all four sides. They are all completely different in style but they all make a lovely entrance to the home and give the vehicles a safe place too.
Carports with the character of beautiful exposed wooden beams
The following photographs display the natural beauty of timber being used in carport designs.
Space down the side of the home
This carport makes use of the unused space at the side of the house. Carports can be built anywhere on the property (check local government regulations), so positioning one at the side or back of the property may be the best design for your home. The added benefit of these positions is that the vehicles are not right on the road frontage, so may offer more protection from theft, etc.
Space and storage at the back of the home
This open carport includes the addition of a small lockup area at the front. It is open on three sides with storage and/or workshop area at the front. It also has electricity connected for power and lighting.
Practical and yet so simple
