Do you want a new carport, patio or other outdoor structure with a little more style than the average? Something a little different? Something with extra class and wow factor? Well, it may be time to go Dutch!
We don’t mean you should try to find someone to share the cost of your new carport or patio, or find a Dutch person to build it! What we mean is you should look at incorporating a Dutch gable roof into your project.
What is a Dutch gable roof carport?
You’ve probably seen a Dutch gable roof around before, although they aren’t as common as hip roofs or flat roofs for example. A Dutch gable roof is a standard hip roof with a pediment or gable at the top. You can see examples in the images on this page.
People use the Dutch gable roof – not just in carports and patios, but also of course in home construction – because they can add a lot of style and class to the project. The only down side is that this style comes at an extra expense. The reason for this is the extra framing required to build a Dutch gable roof, which means more time and therefore labour costs, and more timber.
If you’re willing to go to the extra expense, however, it can be well worth it. As well as adding style and wow factor to any project, if your house features one or more Dutch gable roofs, adding a Dutch gable roof to your new project makes even more sense, as it will help to create a new carport or patio that matches your home perfectly.
How much will a new carport, patio or other outdoor structure with a Dutch gable roof cost? Obviously, this depends on factors such as the size of your project, the site, materials and other factors.

Other carport and patio roof types
What if the Dutch gable roof for your new carport or patio is not the style you’re after, won’t match or complement your home, or you don’t want to go to the extra expense? There are, of course, several other styles of roofs you can choose, including:
Flat roof carport or patio
This roof style probably doesn’t need an explanation, but suffice to say that they are very popular and look excellent alongside many modern and contemporary homes.
Hip roof carport or patio
A very common roof style for carports, patios and homes, which features all sections of the roof sloping up from the sides and ends to meet a ridge or point at the top.
Gable roof carport or patio
Simple, classical and great looking. A gable roof carport or patio will have the two roof sections on the sides sloping up to meet at the top, forming a triangle at both the front and back.
Curved roof carport or patio
Also, perhaps, needs no explanation. A curved roof carport or patio isn’t one you’ll see on every city block, so will suit the family who is after something quite different. One of the curved roof’s major benefits is that it adds extra height under the carport or patio.Outside Concepts builds great things. Call now for a free Quote 1800 601 674.
