Are you looking for the perfect way to add additional covered parking space for your car, boat, SUV or Ute, a gable roof carport may be just what you need. Gabled carports are easier to build than Dutch Gable or hip roofs and they can offer a longer open end than a Skillion. If the space you have to cover is more than 9m, then a gable carport kit is worth thinking about. A gabled carport is a wonderful choice for those who want to maximize outdoor living space. It is the most popular and best-selling carport style for its aesthetic appeal, easy installation and maintenance. The perfect blend of beauty, strength, stability and comfort make gabled carports one of the most frequently used structures in the country today.

The Benefits Gabled Roof Carports or Pitched Roof Carports

Compared to gable roof carports and hip roofs, flat roofs are easier to build and less expensive but the aesthetic quality of a gable. Other feature benefits of a Gabled roof Carport are:-

  • better great air-flow in hot conditions, (more open and higher roof)
  • ease of maintenance, (steeper roof pitch allows dirt and leaves to wash off easily) 
  • Wider opening possible without using another set of legs (max 9m opening with Skillion)

The Gable roof carport is simpler to build than a hip or Dutch gable structure and is almost as easy as installing a Skillion Roof. The Gable structure only needs to be strong enough to support itself. Unfortunately it has been proved that many Gable Carport designs available in Australia do not comply with the Australian Standards. The Professional Choice Gable Carports not only comply with Australian Standards but can easily be upgraded to take an additional 20kg per square metre to allow the retrofitting of solar panels on the roof.

Things to Consider before buying a Gable Carport Kit

A gable carport is a great addition to your yard. This type of carport provides good protection against strong wind, rain, hail, snow and sun damage. A Gable carport is supplied without end in-fills. This means the “Gable”, the triangular shape formed at the roof ends, is left open. This allows more airflow through the structure. This is a great assist in keeping a Gable Carport cooler in hot days so making it more comfortable.

Most customers will decide to have an infill Frame on one or both sides. The ends can be filled with various materials of your choice when an in-fill Frame is fitted. Aluminium, steel or wooden slats, cement board, lattice or all common choice for an in-fill gable.. A good paint job on the infill can really ‘lift’ the look of a gable carport.

You can also order your Gable Carport Kit with infills. Your Gable Carport kit will be supplied in the Colorbond colour of your choice. Professional Choice Gable Carport kits are relatively easy to install by any competent DIY person.

Easier Installation with Base Plates

Carport should be installed with the legs dug into concrete or "in-ground installation". It is an easier task to install a carport on top of an existing slab and it is quite legal in most of Australia except Cyclonic areas. Base Plates can be supplied on request with the Professional Choice Gable Carport kit.

Other Choices with a Gable Carport Kit - Pitched Roof Carport

Gable carports are the epitome of class and elegance. Gable carports have beautiful peak roofs which enhance their overall appearance and make them a more prominent feature. The pitch of the roof is normally 15 degrees but the customer can choose a smaller pitch of 10 degrees or a 20 degree pitch. Most older style homes have a roof pitch of around 20-22 degrees so the 20 degree pitch tends to blend in well with many homes.
