Choosing the Right Location

Gable Freestanding Wide Shot, no pavingFind a suitable spot to build your carport. It can be either attached to your home or freestanding, but the most important thing is the place should be spacious enough to park your car as well as open doors and boots, remove children/shopping and be able to load larger items into the car. Be sure to take note of power lines and septic tanks so you don’t face any issues when digging the foundations or allowing machinery through.

Consider the weather elements as well. Will the hot setting sun be too harsh on your car? Or will you get soaked running from the free-standing carport to your house when it’s raining? High winds can blow damaging debris onto your vehicle if the side of your carport is open and car seats can get very hot for children and adults if they are exposed to the sun’s full heat in the middle of the day.

Council Permits and Regulations

CPR Outdoor Centre are experienced in understanding Council permits and Shire regulations and can obtain all necessary approvals for you when they manufacture, supply and install your carport. This will not only save you time and stress in chasing up paperwork, but also ensure your structure is compliant with local building regulations.
