Carport with flat roof is the classic


The most classic form of carport cover is a flat roof with a slight slope. The materials used are trapezoidal or corrugated sheet metal roofs, sheets of plastic or acrylic glass and welding tracks on a fiberboard. The construction is well visible and protects the vehicle from precipitation and falling leaves and branches.

Unobtrusive and elegant

A key factor in choosing a carport with a flat roof is the light-looking look that blends well into the environment. In addition, the vehicle remains in the field of view and any vandals or thieves feel like on the "presentation plate".

With a partially transparent or completely transparent flat roof, the inconspicuousness of the carport is further enhanced. Nevertheless, with appropriate acrylic glass plates with UV resistance and light filtering, the heating of the vehicle is prevented by sunlight.

The construction of a carport with a flat roof is almost self-explanatory. Four corner posts hold a square or rectangular frame on which the flat roof is laid and fastened. For very large versions, an additional cross-shaped support is mounted under the flat roof.

All architectural styles

Since carports are usually built near a main building or as an annex to it, the wide range of options makes it possible to adapt the appearance of the carport to the building and architectural style of the surroundings.

Almost all types and models of carport with flat roof are available as kits. The spectrum ranges from modern plastic elements with acrylic glass combinations to rustic wooden constructions with jewelry applications such as veneers and side skirts.
