Carports

Bringing shade and protection from sun, rain and snow - a timber carport provides shelter without obstructing views and the complication of opening a door to park in a garage.

Stunning  timber carports designed and installed by experts

An understated garaging option, our carports are built with some unique stylish points including  Chart curved bracing and the choice between pressure treated softwood or European oak framing.

At home in contemporary or traditional settings this is a perfect parking option for any driveway.

Build a wooden carport to your own style

Aside from the choice of pressure treated FSC certified European softwood framing or oak, a car port is based on the same barn style as our carriage houses.
This means you can choose from three different roof styles, often helping match the timber carport to your own house or local vernacular.


A traditional gable roof (full height at either end), barn hip (half hip), or full hip are all choices to consider. Equally, the roof finish itself can twist the aesthetics of your carport, as standard we offer hard-wearing Onduvilla roof tiles but with an optional pitch increase - clay or slate tiles are possible (these finishes to be added by your own tiler). Worth considering also are Tapco slates or the timeless style of cedar shingles.


The Chart Garages team can help and guide you through timber choices as well as roofing options and even assist with planning drawings.
