Advantages of a skillion roof carport

February 04, 2012 | Carports, Polycarbonate roofing | 0 comments | Author:

Many carports today feature gable, Dutch gable and hip roof styles. But if you are wanting an economical and functional carport why go past the skillion or ‘lean-to’ roof?

The advantage of the lean-to, single pitch carport roof is that they are commonly attached to the house. This means access to the house is protected in all weather – important if you are carrying in groceries in the rain, or sleeping children on a hot day. Most often construction involves erecting supporting posts on one side and attaching a beam to the house on the other to support the rafters. It’s usually a relatively simple job and one that can be done on a smaller budget than other free standing carport designs.

These simple carports can be designed to fit snugly into a corner of the house, saving valuable garden or yard space for other purposes. In this example our customers in Leura in the Blue Mountains wanted to combine the entry awning and carport into a covered space where their children could play ball and other informal games. They opted for a brick paved driveway rather than a concrete one enhancing their heritage style cottage.

Outside Concepts Sydney West have built dozens of carports and can advise you on the most economical designs using either timber frame and BlueScope steel roofing, steel framed and roofed or combinations of the above with polycarbonate roofing or skylight panels. All are custom designed for your house and budget.
