Garages and Carports – Beyond a Box with a Door

Do you need somewhere to park your RV, car, caravan or even a place to store your boat or want to add some outdoor entertainment space, but you’re not sure what options are available? You might want something that looks a bit different, or perhaps you want it to serve multiple purposes.  

We’ve looked at the world of garages and carports and produced an essential guide on what they’re all about:

  • Types of Garages and Carports

Garages and carports can come in a wide range of designs with the best manufacturers offering bespoke sizing options. From basic single garages to triple garages with a variety of roof designs and options to add additional features, there will be one to suit your needs perfectly. Carports can be used to extend your garage or simply add some covered outdoor space to an existing building, with flat or gable roofs.

  • Where to Purchase your Garage or Carport

There are some things to consider when you’re looking for the best garage sheds, or carports. These are long-term investments, so for peace of mind, choose a manufacturer who engineers their products above and beyond Australian standards, using superior steel thickness, and stands by their quality and durability by giving a long warranty of 20 years. For the best value, look for a manufacturer who supplies direct and offers a best-price guarantee. Customisation options are another factor to consider when choosing a manufacturer.

  • Carport, Garage or Both?

You want to make the right choice, and the best manufacturers will have knowledgeable representatives to discuss your ideas and requirements in detail before you go ahead. The primary purpose is key as to which option you choose, for example, a garage can be more easily converted into a space with more privacy and offers greater security and overall protection, whereas a carport lets you easily extend an existing garage or other structure where full walls are not required. The openness of a carport lends itself perfectly to creating great outdoor entertaining areas such as BBQ’s or even dance meets.
