When it comes to having a brand new carport built, don’t you want to make sure that you pick the right type and style for your needs? When most people think of garages, they’ll typically envision a large room where a car can be stored in between uses – and for the most part, this is correct. But what many don’t realise is that there are actually several different styles of garage that you could go for. Some of these include:

  1. Walled and roofed garages – often referred to as the more ‘traditional style’
  2. Side-less garages – sometimes known as pergolas
  3. Hybrid garages – where you’ll be able to pick and choose the features that you like the most

Generally speaking, you’ll likely want your port to be sufficiently sized to fit the number of cars that you plan on storing. There will need to be space on either side of the vehicle/ vehicles to get in and out without issue. If you opt for a door, you’ll be pleased to hear that there are plenty of variations to choose from – all of which we just so happen to specialise in installing.

Door types include electric, remote controlled, timed, sliding, folding and many more in between.

The key to ensuring that your garage is ideal for you is to take the time to properly plan what you intend to use it for. For instance, if you want to get in and out quickly, while protecting your car from the sun’s potentially damaging rays – you could benefit from a side-less garage. Alternatively, we offer options to install garages in a way that allows access to a home; typically by installing a door internally (perfect for escaping the rain).

Which option should you go for?

 There really is no right or wrong; in fact, as long as your chosen port suits your specific needs, you can relax in the knowledge that you’ve made a great choice. Our team are always on hand to work closely with our clients, helping them to conceptualise the ideal garage for their needs and then turn that concept into a reality.

Not only will a functional port for your car help to protect it from the elements and potentially keep it safe from unsavoury activities such as burglary, you’ll also be adding value to your property if you ever decide to sell it.
