If you’re considering building a new carport for your Sydney home, you’ve perhaps considered things like how large the carport should be and where you want it located on your block. But have you decided what materials you should use, in particular what you’ll place on the roof?
While there are several excellent choices – such as Colorbond and polycarbonate sheeting – if there is one material that is the most popular in the Sydney market it would be tiles. This is predominantly because tiles are also a popular choice for house roofs and, as we’ve said many times in our blogs, one of the keys to good outdoor structure design is to match or complement the home.
There are other good reasons to consider tiles for your new Sydney carport, however. These include:
- Tiles won’t rust, warp or corrode. This makes them ideal in any area, but particularly areas that can receive sea spray.
- While generally strong, if you do break a tile or a tile cracks you can easily replace it without much cost.
- Tiles are impervious to frost and ice.
- They provide good noise and thermal insulation
- If you need to modify your Sydney carport roof at a later day, for example to fit a skylight or even to extend, it’s an easy job.
- Tiles are rainwater and tank safe
Most of all, however, tiles just look great. They will give your new Sydney carport a visual presence and street appeal. This mightn’t help protect your cars – although tiles will do a great job of that too – but it will help you have the best looking carport in the street!
Tiles not the only key to a wow factor Sydney carport
Choosing tiles can help provide a Sydney carport with wow factor but it’s not the only key.
Take a look at the images on this page of two carports built by our Sydney North branch manager Brett Nitschke and his team. They show aspects that have been chosen carefully to complement or match the home, including:
- The choice of roof style (e.g. gable, hip, flat).
- The choice of colour, not just for the tiles but also other parts of the Sydney carports.
- The choice of the roof tile itself.
- The use of other features used in the house.
