How much does it cost to build a carport?
A very common question, but the answer depends on several factors:

  • type of carport
  • size
  • earthworks
  • installation (installed or DIY)
  • location of your home

A carport is great and can be a cost-effective alternative to a garage to protect your car, boat or caravan.

Type of carport

What type of carport do you want?

Will it be attached to the house or completely freestanding?

The type of roof can also affect the final price. A flat roof will be cheaper than a gable roof but might not look as good and is limited by the height of you house.

Flat roofs are perfect for freestanding carports that are used as protection to cover cars or machinery on a work site, farm or outside your business.

Gables and multi gables will give you a lot more options to match in with your existing roof and add a stylish valuable feature to your home.


The size of your carport is always a consideration; a larger carport will be more expensive than a smaller one. The advantages of the larger size will usually out way the extra cost.


Where you want to have your carport built will also determine the price. Are you having a concrete pad put down first, using a gravel or placing it over the existing surface?
