Are you looking for stylish and affordable protection for your car? If so, our premium-quality carports are a perfect weatherproofed car storage solution. Choose from single or double metal or wooden car ports, with freestanding and lean to carport options also being available.
The word “carport” is French in origin and comes from "porte-cochère". This is a passageway built on the side of buildings to enable vehicles to travel. Both of the spellings “carports” and “car ports” are in common use. However, to add another name into the mix, these car storage solutions also go by the name “car canopies”, all of which refer to the same thing.
As well as buying as an alternative solution to a garage, additional benefits of buying our car ports for sale are:
Our wooden car ports are all manufactured from FSC®-certified Nordic spruce timber. They are perfect for traditional settings and are guaranteed for five years. All of our wooden car ports are supplied untreated, so will need treating with a top-quality wood preservative upon installation and ideally annually thereafter.
Various models of metal carports (usually aluminium) are available for sale at Shedstore. Choose from various styles, which especially suit modern gardens. Choose metal carports as a maintenance-free option, with some models having UV protection.
The majority of our carports are freestanding garden buildings, that need to be installed and erected separately from any other building. A number of our models are lean to carports, which means they are designed to “lean next to” a building and in doing so become a stylish form of patio cover or awning.
Lean to carports have the advantage of consuming less space as they attach directly to a building. Freestanding carports have the advantage of being installable anywhere you have the available space, giving you more flexibility.
Car ports protect cars from harsh winter weather such as frost, rain, wind, and snow. This can sometimes eliminate defrosting windscreens in the morning. In summer months cars are protected from much direct sunlight. Some of our models come with built-in UV protection, ensuring your car's paint job stays looking fresh and vibrant for years to come.
Understanding the dimensions of your carport is crucial for optimal use. Our carports come in a variety of sizes, ensuring we have the perfect fit for your needs. Whether you're looking for a compact single carport or a spacious double carport, we've got you covered. Remember, the width is the distance along the side of the wall, the projection is the distance the carport spans from the supporting wall, and the height is the overall height of the carport structure.
When it comes to our carports, quality is our top priority. We understand that a carport is a significant investment, and we want to ensure that you get the most out of it. That's why our carports undergo rigorous wind load testing and comply with all building regulations. Whether you choose our metal carports or wooden carports, you can rest assured that you're getting a product that's built to last.
Our carports are designed with your convenience in mind. With easy-to-follow instructions, even those with basic DIY skills can have their carport up in just a few hours. Plus, the convenience of driving directly in without having to unlock a garage door is a game-changer. Say goodbye to the days of fumbling with keys in the rain or snow.
Unlike traditional garages, our carports offer excellent ventilation. The open design allows for natural fresh air to circulate, keeping your car cool in the summer months. Plus, our carports still offer protection against sun, wind, and rain, ensuring your vehicle stays in top condition.
To prevent flooding and water damage, some of our carports come with built-in rainwater guttering. This feature allows water to be directed wherever required, ensuring your carport and surrounding areas stay dry.
We understand that everyone has different tastes when it comes to design. That's why we offer our carports in a variety of colour schemes. Whether you prefer a classic white, a timber look or dark colours, we have options that will complement your home's exterior.
For added durability and protection, consider our carports with polycarbonate roofing. This material is tough, weather-resistant, and able to withstand harsh conditions.
Car ports are open buildings designed primarily for aesthetic appeal and to offer some protection from the elements for cars. If you might prefer lockable, secure, and private options for cars and motorbikes, consider these options:
These are all perfect for storing motorbikes, larger versions of these garages can also store cars
If you prefer the look of wood, these wooden garages will all store motorbikes, with larger garages being also able to store cars and
