How Would You Like To Get Started
With a detached carport the structure is covered with a roof, but it is detached from other other buildings, in other words it stands alone. The carport will protect your vehicles from outside elements.
Constructing a carport to protect your assets from damage from the sun, extreme heat, hail and tropical storms is a wise investment. It will not only protect the vehicle but adding the structure may increase your home valuation.
Carports can be constructed in many sizes and shapes to suit the individual homeowners requirements – so you can opt to protect an individual vehicle or many vehicles. The detached carport height can be ammended to allow for bigger vehicles such as tractors, heavy machinery, buses, motor homes and caravans.
Residential blocks are decreasing in size, most carports have to be connected to the house due to space restrictions. Commonly it is attached to the home frontage or side access of the home. If you have the extra space on your land then considering a detached option is a great idea.
It will give you space between the carport and the house, and houses the vehicles safely.
If you have a busy road frontage, building the carport at a back corner of the property may keep your vehicles safer.
A stylish option is to match the home decor and design by mirroring that style in the detached carport at the home front.
Carports not only protect cars – you can use your carport to protect other assets like: caravans, motorhomes, camper trailers, trailers, boats, 4WDs, animal floats, bicycles, motorbikes, buses and farm equipment.
The versatility of having a detached carport is awesome. Some other uses for the carport include – children’s parties, wet day play area, entertaining, storage, barbecues, gardening, fold out washing lines etc.
At Diamond Patios we construct with a timber frame and use corrugated, colorbond, clear corrugated or multiwall, or any combination for the roof.
These photographs below are to give some inspiration for design and position.
