Australian Steel Carports
Steel carports are a terrific way to protect your car from the elements and the most popular sizes for double carport kits and single carport kits can be purchased for less as off-the-shelf items. They are much stronger than wooden structures, and you can have a carport roof style, customized to fit in with any style of home. Steel carports come in all sizes and shapes, so you're sure to find one that fits your needs perfectly!
These structures are made from galvanized steel, which means it has been treated with zinc to prevent rusting. Everyone knows of the durability of Australian Colorbond which will last a lifetime. The legs, beams and purlins are also strong so you can have a single or double carport to withstand any Australian wind area. Buying an Australian made carport will ensure that your new carport will last for most of your life!

There are four main types of roofs from which you can choose. The first is a flat roof carport, (Skillion roof carport) which is popular because it's easy to install and less expensive.
The second is a gable-style carport with two sloping sides that meet at the top to form an 'A' shape. This type of structure provides excellent protection from rain, hail and wind but does tend to be more expensive than a flat roof carport.
