Benefits of a Carport

Offers Protection Against the Harsh Australian Climate
One of the primary advantages of a carport is its ability to shield your vehicle from various weather conditions.

Whether it’s the scorching sun, pouring rain, or hail, a carport can significantly reduce your vehicle’s wear and tear, helping maintain its appearance and functionality over time.

Energy Efficient
With rising electricity costs, a carport could be an optimal choice. Less power usage than traditional garages allows for an environmentally friendly option with improved natural lighting and reduced operational costs.

Increases Home Value
Adding a carport to your property can also have financial benefits, particularly in increasing your home’s market value.

Types of Carports

The options are vast and varied when choosing the right carport for your home. From sleek flat designs to more intricate curved and combination styles, there’s a carport to suit every need and aesthetic.

Here are some of the most popular types of carports we offer:

Flat Roof Carports

Flat carports are the peak of modern simplicity. With their clean lines and minimalist design, they effortlessly complement contemporary homes.

Despite their simple structure, flat carports are incredibly effective at protecting vehicles. They’re especially suitable for areas with mild weather conditions, where the primary concern is sheltering from the sun and rain.

The straightforward design makes for easier installation and can be more cost-effective than complex structures.

Skillion Roof Carports

Skillion roof carports feature a single, sloping roof panel. This design adds a modern architectural element to your property and enhances functionality by directing rainwater and debris away from the covered area.

The angled roof is particularly advantageous in regions with heavy rainfall, as it prevents water accumulation, ensuring the durability and longevity of the

Skillion-roof carports can be attached to an existing building or constructed as a standalone structure, offering carport design and placement flexibility.

Custom Gable Carports

Custom gable carports are an excellent choice for those seeking a more traditional or classic look.

Gable carports feature a peaked roof with two sloping sides that create a triangle. They are designed to mimic the style of many residential roofs, making them an aesthetically pleasing addition to your property.

The gable design offers an attractive appearance and excellent drainage capabilities. Customisable options allow homeowners to match the carport’s roofing materials and colours to their homes, ensuring a cohesive look.

Curved and Combination Carports

Curved and combination carports represent the pinnacle of design versatility and innovation. With their arched roofs, curved carports offer a unique, modern aesthetic that can turn a functional structure into a striking architectural feature. These carports are particularly well-suited for contemporary homes where bold, artistic statements are desired.

Combination carports, on the other hand, offer the ultimate in customisation. By combining different elements, such as flat and curved sections or incorporating skillion and gable roofs into one structure, homeowners can create a carport that truly reflects their personal style and meets their needs.

Whether you’re looking for a carport that blends seamlessly with your home’s design or one that stands out as a focal point, combination carports provide the flexibility to bring your vision to life.

Size and Design Considerations

Size and design are the most crucial aspects to consider when selecting a carport. These elements impact not only the functionality and effectiveness of the carport but also how well it integrates with your existing features.

Understanding Space Requirements

The primary consideration for a carport’s size is the type and number of vehicles you plan to shelter. A standard single carport typically can comfortably accommodate a single car or SUV.

A double carport provides ample space for two cars for households with multiple vehicles. It’s also wise to consider future needs.

Beyond vehicle accommodation, think about additional uses for your carport space. Planning for a little extra space can provide the versatility to use your carport for more than just parking cars.

Considering Local Weather Conditions

The design of your carport should also consider the local climate. Areas with high winds might require additional structural support or specific anchoring techniques.

Personal Preferences and Custom Features

Finally, consider any personal preferences or specific requirements you might have. This could include additional storage space within the carport, integrated lighting for nighttime use, or even side panels to provide fantastic shade and extra protection against the elements.

I initially engaged Abel to install a new back patio, but after being so impressed with their service, I had them install a carport & front veranda. From the lovely ladies in the office to the installers & everyone I dealt with in between, these guys go out of their way to ensure the customer is satisfied, & the build is finished to a quality standard. I highly recommend Abel, & if I had any more roof space to attach something else I would definitely get Abel in to do the job. Cheers Abel team.

Vicki Botterell

Abel Patios are a delight to deal with. They are highly professional and reasonably priced, consulting you on your project every step of the way and always responding promptly when contacted. They were recommended to me by a trusted friend, and I highly recommend them to anyone seeking quality workmanship from a professional company with integrity.

Cameron Maller

Abel Patios have just built a new carport at my place and, given their prompt, friendly efficient service, I’d thoroughly recommend them. From the first contact with their clear-speaking informative receptionist to the salesman and the two beauties who erected the frame + the two roofers as well as the chaps who checked progress, they were wonderful! Please note, Abel got the job after I’d spoken with 3 other companies who gave me the impression that they were overworked and worn out, which sapped my confidence in their ability to build a carport to my satisfaction. All communication with Abel was the very opposite, certainly made me feel like a valued customer right the way down the line. Excellent mob and excellent job!

Suzanne Covich

Just wanted to thank Abel Patios for the tremendous work your team did on the louvre patio. It looks like new and beyond my expectation. Also, the consideration your team extended to myself in work ethic and in cleaning up. Much appreciation and would not hesitate to recommend to anyone looking to install a patio.

Deborah Blake

I was extremely impressed with Able Patios from the first time I contacted them for a quote. The salesman was on time, was well presented and knowledgeable about the job and what was required. The guys who came to remove the roof and replace it were very professional and experienced. Nothing was too much trouble and the quality of the work was exceptional. Lyndon O’Keefe the owner was on site regularly, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Able Patio’s. I’m very pleased with the outcome and experience.

Dorinda McKay

I couldn’t be happier with my new patio! Everyone at Abel Patios & Abel Roofing has been amazing from start to finish. They made the whole process easy. It was done in a timely manner, the workmanship and materials used are high quality. I would Highly recommend.

Ciara Fitzpatrick

We have been renovating for years and Abel is easily the most pleasant, customer first company we have dealt with. They made the process so easy, from Kim who did the initial quote, to the guys who did the fitting and even the company owner Lyndon checking into ensure we were happy. Excellent service. Cant recommend them highly enough. It was all so straightforward.

Leona Kyle

A very professionally run company, the whole experience was hassle free from point of referral to project completion. Excellent communication from Lyndon and his staff. Project delivered on time as planned, installers and delivery personnel extremely polite and easy to have on my premises. I would not hesitate to recommend Abel Patios.

Frequently Asked Questions about Carports

How much does it cost to install a carport?

Chevron Down

The cost of a carport can vary widely depending on factors such as size, materials, and whether it’s a DIY project or professionally installed.

How do I choose the right carport for my home?

Chevron Down

Consider your climate, the size and number of vehicles you need to accommodate, your property’s space constraints, and your home’s aesthetic style. Durability, maintenance, and any local regulations that might influence your choice are also important.

Can carports protect against all weather conditions?

Chevron Down

While carports offer substantial protection against sun, rain, and debris, they may not completely protect against all weather conditions due to their open design. For instance, vehicles might still be exposed to sideways rain or storms.

How long does a carport last?

Chevron Down

The lifespan of a carport depends on the materials used, the quality of construction, and exposure to environmental conditions. Metal carports can last several decades with minimal maintenance.
