What is the recommended height for a carport?

Who has never complained on winter mornings when the car has to be de-iced or on summer afternoons with the steering wheel burning from the sun?

At Biossun, we have the solution for you: the carport. Less expensive than building a garage, the carport is a practical and aesthetic solution that will blend in with the outside environment. The added bonus is that Biossun aluminium carports are 100% custom-made, so that they are completely in line with your needs. When designing the carport, it is important to determine the dimensions of the carport in advance to optimise your parking.

Manufacture of made-to-measure aluminium carport

From the moment you have the idea of designing a carport, there are many questions to ask yourself in order not to make a mistake and to have a shelter that will be able to withstand the future elements. Today you have only one car, but in the future a second one may arrive. This is why it is necessary to think carefully about the ideal carport. As with our bioclimatic pergolas, carports can be attached to your house or self-supporting.

The size of the carport varies according to the number of cars you wish to park and, above all, it is proportional to their volume. For a single car, you can start with a base of 5185 x 3300 mm, whereas for two cars, you would need at least 5485 x 6000 mm.

For a carport capable of housing two or more vehicles, you will also have to think about how to park: one next to the other or one behind the other. In order to have an optimised carport size for two cars.

At Biossun, we offer you the manufacture of custom-made aluminium carports since this material has many advantages:

● The first advantage is that the aluminium carport is ultra resistant and has a very long life span. Solid, this material is very light, stable and above all resistant to bad weather.

● In addition to this longevity, the use of aluminium allows ultra simple maintenance since it is a material that does not attract dirt. What we recommend when installing a carport is to clean the structure twice a year with specific products.

● It is always nice to have spaces that blend into the environment of the residence. This is what we offer with our aluminium carports, elegant and aesthetic elements that maintain the architectural harmony to park and protect your vehicles.

● The dimensions of a carport will be proportional to the volumes of the vehicles. It should be noted that it can shelter cars, but also motor homes, caravans, motorbikes ... That is why at Biossun, we manufacture carports to measure with the aim that they adapt perfectly to your needs and your space.

Other uses of the carport

As mentioned before, the carport can shelter your cars, but also any other vehicle such as motorbikes, motor homes, caravans, etc. Everything will depend on the height and width of the carport.

Whether or not it is attached to your house, the aluminium carport could be used in a different way, as it has the advantage of providing protection from the weather. It can be used as a terrace shelter to act as a veranda and provide an additional outdoor room to make the most of the outdoors.

The carport can also be used to protect garden equipment such as furniture, lawnmowers or gardening tools.

As you can see, designing a bespoke aluminium carport requires some thought in order to get the most out of the space. The most important thing to consider is that when you park your vehicles, you can open the doors and turn around.

You can customise your carport by adding options to maximise its use.
