What is a Carport?

A carport, which originates from the word “porte-cochère” and a term coined by Frank Lloyd Wright, a renowned American architect.

A covered portal or structure that is an incredibly effective and affordable way to protect your car from the weather and particularly sun damage. It offers a versatile solution for the protection of your car.

Here at Custom Outdoor Living, we specialise in building wooden carports that are modern and suited to your needs.

A Garage or Carport For Your Melbourne Property?

The difference between a garage or carport is that one provides a completely enclosed space, while the other has a roof supported by vertical structures.

A carport is simply a covered structure that doesn’t have four walls. They do offer less protection when compared to a garage but have the advantage that they offer more ventilation and are a less expensive option.

The main reason you might choose a garage is because you would like to lock your car away in a secured structure that also offers the maximum protection possible from the weather conditions.

Garages can also be used as storage space. Having said that, carports can also be constructed to offer enclosed storage space or extra storage units.

Timber Carports vs Metal Carports

Carports can either be built from metal, including steel, tin or aluminium. Here at Custom Outdoor Living, we specialise in building timber carports and therefore do not provide ones made from metal.

We feel that in many cases one that is constructed using timber provides a more elegant feel to the property and provide more flexibility as well as helping to blend in seamlessly with the design of a typical Melbourne property.
