Features and Benefits of our Carports
Why buy a carport?
Our carports are manufactured from the material GRP (Glass Reinforced Polyester) this means the carports are strong and yet light weight. GRP is also used in the production of roofing laminate, door surrounds, over-door canopies, window canopies and dormers, chimneys, coping systems, heads with keystones and sills. So GRP is the most modern solution for materials used in the housing market.
Due to the polycarbonate sheeting used for the roof, it is shatterproof and has a life expectancy of in excess of 10 years. Installing a carport is a cost effective option to building a garage and is quicker, cheaper and less space consuming.
As discussed in a previous carport article there are many uses for our carports / patio canopies. Installing a carport is an affordable alternative to a garage. Many home owners never use their garage due to the hassle of getting the car in and out and the fact the garage is often used as additional storage space. So by fitting a carport to the side of your house you immediately create an additional protected area for your car or other possessions. If your entrance door is at the side of your property you instantly create cover for when you arrive home and enter your home.
