DIY Carports And Patio Canopies
Our DIY carports are available in two different styles supported and cantilever. Depending on the look and the space you have available will determine which style carport will best suit your needs.
Carports as a rule do not require building regulations, but it is wise to get this checked out before you make your purchase. It is worth mentioning that any electrical work i.e. lighting which will receive the electricity from inside the dwelling will have to apply for building regulations for this electrical work.
Cantilever Car Port
Our cantilever car ports are perfect where space is an issue due to the self-supporting canopy design. There’s no need to worry about the vertical posts when parking your vehicle under the carport. The carport is manufactured from GRP glass reinforced plastic and has translucent roof panels which allow the natural light to filter through. So if the car port is situated over any windows or doors of the property it still allows the natural light to enter the house.
Available in two projection sizes; standard and large. Standard sizes start at 1.5m by 2.4m up to 3.0 by 7.2m and the larger projection range from 3.5 by 1.8m up to 4.0 by 9.0m. The translucent roofing is available in a choice of 3 colours clear, opal and bronze. The standard carports roof is 10mmm thick and the larger is 16mm.
Installing either the cantilever or supported carport is a 2 person job and can be installed in an afternoon. No special tools are needed to fit the carports; all you will need is a ladder, screw driver, drill and wrenches.
Both of these carports are supplied with full fitting instructions and are delivered anywhere in the UK for free delivery.
