Carports, Porches & Canopies

Weather Protection for Home or Business

Traditional Carports –

With one edge the attached to a wall and supported by posts the traditional carport is able to cover a wide distance with a versatile incline.

Ideal for weather protection for the vehicle and occupants whilst loading/unloading, helping to protect the vehicle from frost, snow and bird droppings.

Cantilever Carports –

the carport is attached on one side to a suitable structure. Cantilever constructions are fitted against a support wall with mechanical anchors. This enables easier access as there are no pillars and can also be used above a patio area for weather protection without spoiling the view.

Free-standing Carports, Canopies

– also referred to as standalone canopies – supported by its own posts, independent of any other structure. Freestanding carports/canopies offer robust weather protection, defending against strong wind and rain.

Of course these days Carports are not always used just to park a car underneath but can also be used as a covered seating area, covered play area, porches, patio canopy, caravan cover, cycle/smoke shelters.


Porches come in a range of styles and shapes as each one is tailored to your home and personal tastes. Gable-end, Pitched or Flat roof, simple Lean-to style or a Double Hipped entrance that makes a statement in style – the choice is yours to make.
For disabled access or where extra door width is needed, we would suggest extra wide or French style doors are fitted with a low aluminium threshold for easier wheeled access.
