Types of Timber

Most carports are made from varieties of treated pine with different finishes, however, at times different cladding or posts can be used from our broad range of timber species.

Softwoods — DIY Carport Kits Adelaide

A Softwoods carport will provide you with a safe place to keep your car, saving it from any damage from trees, birds or the sun’s rays. Our carports will also add value to your home. We take care when designing carports to mirror the architectural design of your home so that the carport seamlessly integrates into its style and gives the impression that it’s been there forever. The purpose of a carport is to protect your car and provide safe passage from the car to your home. In designing your carport, we’ll consider the prevailing architectural style of your home and look to match it. We’ll also consider how the weather operates in your area and how we might best adjust our design to allow maximum protection while still maintaining visual appeal.

In terms of the size of carport you require, a typical double carport has a width of 5.4 to 6.0m, and a single carport is usually 3.0m wide. The depth will normally be from 5.4 to 6.0m. If you have a 4WD or other large vehicle, then we may need to increase these sizes slightly. Integration of timber screening into carport kits can provide your car with more protection as well as give a side of your home some privacy from the neighbours. Timber screening is also a great way of providing the feel of an enclosed space to a carport without actually having to add walls. If you’re looking for DIY carport kits Adelaide has to offer that are quick to assemble, sturdy, affordable and comes with the support of an experienced team, speak to us at Softwoods today.
