Vehicles are an essential part of the modern Australian lifestyle. In fact, The Australian says that more than 90% of Australian households own at least one car. If you’re one of the car-owning population, you’ll need a safe and durable place to keep your investments against harsh storms and soaring temperatures.
Just Patios offers just the solution. We provide carports to Sunshine Coast households, including raised flyover and gable types. We also build the most popular type — the skillion carport. Here are some reasons skillion carports grace many homes in the country.
A skillion carport’s main advantage lies in its structural soundness. Just Patio’s skillion carports, for example, are made from durable materials, ensuring that they will withstand tough conditions and last for years.
Its roof makes it useful during rainy days, too. The steep slope enables water to drain off effectively without the help of additional materials. Moreover, this carport fits snugly into a backyard corner, maximising the space there.
A Focus on Ventilation and Natural Light
Households that receive a lot of sun and rain benefit greatly from skillion roofs. The roof protects the vehicles from heat, rain, snow and, by consequence, wear and tear effectively.
It does not, however, confine the space. Because the roof is only held up by beams, a skillion carport allows air to flow in and provide ample ventilation to the vehicle.
The Contemporary Feel
A skillion carport has a very simple design. It consists of a durable, sloped roof supported by vertical beams.
Builders install a skillion carport in two ways. One, they install it as an extension of the house. They attach a beam to the wall of the house and erect supporting posts opposite of it. The beam and the posts then support the slanted roof. Two, they build the skillion carport as a freestanding unit, detached from the home. This consists of two sets of supporting posts that carry the sloped roof.
Since only a handful of material types are used, and there are no complicated designs, the home maintains its clean and uncluttered vibe. This is a feature of many minimalist designs.
It’s Not Expensive
Skillion carports cost less than other carport types without compromising the safety of your vehicles. On top of that, Just Patios uses equally reliable materials that reduce costs further, like Zincalume® sheets and galvanised frames.
Bear in mind, however, that certain considerations can change the price of a skillion carport, like its size and the materials used.
A skillion roof’s simple design calls for easy and fast installation. The project will run even smoother if you hire the services of experienced carport builders like Just Patios.
