Carport with a garage door?

Yep, it’s true! A carport is still a carport even when it has a garage door.

If you are in the market for a carport but are feeling exposed by an open street frontage, why not think about this as a solution?

Outside Concepts builds great carports—in timber, steel or aluminium or any combination of materials.

Here at Outside Concepts Sydney West we are creative thinkers – driven to finding a solution for you. We’re conversant with all the council planning regulations, building trends and have a great network of suppliers—that makes us ready to work with you to find a solution which best fulfils your needs!

In choosing a garage door you have to evaluate available head clearance to allow for door storage while open. There are two main types of garage doors on the market—the Panelift and the Roller door with a range of manufacturers producing good quality doors of both types.

A panel lift door is generally more expensive than a roller door and requires less overhead clearance which may be beneficial in situations of limited head height. They also provide more options in terms of appearance. The famous Australian roller door, is a more economical solution, however it requires more clearance (approx. 450mm) above the opening so the ‘roll’ can be stored.

If you need to know more about how your carport can be built and fitted with a garage door, give Outside Concepts a call today.
