When many of us think of a simple, low-maintenance carport, we probably wouldn’t expect the result would be stylish. But that’s exactly what was achieved with this Sydney carport, built by Mr Carports.

The homeowners wanted a double carport to be designed and built for their house and they had a list of relatively simple needs and wants:

  • Firstly, the Sydney carport needed to match their house.
  • It needed to be economical to build, without looking cheap.
  • And it needed to be virtually maintenance free.

Sydney carport a firm decision

After discussing the homeowners needs and agreeing on a design, Mr Carports chose steel posts and a product called Colorbond Firmlok for the structure of the carport. Firmlok’s main advantages are that it’s light, strong and won’t warp or split. Plus, like other Colorbond products, it doesn’t require painting. For the roof, Colorbond roofing sheets were chosen for the same reason. And, to add a touch of style and extra protection from the elements, plastic lattice infills were used on the two sides of the carport.

The homeowners now have a Sydney carport that will last for decades and will require virtually no maintenance.
