A skillion roof carport, a shed-style or lean-to carport, features a distinctive single, sloping roof panel. This modern and minimalist design sets it apart from traditional carport styles.
Typically angled to ensure quick and efficient water runoff, the roof is higher on one side and slopes downwards to the opposite side. This design provides excellent drainage and gives the carport a sleek, contemporary look.
Simple and versatile
The simplicity of the skillion roof design allows for ease of construction and versatility in various architectural settings. The structure is supported by sturdy columns or posts, made from various materials such as wood, steel, or aluminium. These supports are strategically placed to maximize space and vehicle accessibility.
For the roofing material, options like metal sheets, polycarbonate panels, or even fabric coverings are commonly used due to their durability and ability to withstand various weather conditions. The choice of material often depends on the desired aesthetic, budget, and climatic needs.

The skillion roof carport can be designed in various sizes to accommodate single or multiple vehicles. Its compact and efficient design makes it particularly suitable for spaces where a traditional gabled or flat roof carport might not fit. Additionally, its design can be easily adapted to match the existing style and colour scheme of the main building, ensuring architectural harmony.
Some skillion roof carports may include additional features like integrated gutters for rainwater management, side panels for extra weather protection, or even solar panels on the roof to increase energy efficiency.
