Not everyone may be familiar with timber carports. Those unfamiliar with carports and the many materials with which they can be made may be entirely unaware that there is a difference between carports. Others may be unaware that they can come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and can be made out of different materials. One of the most popular materials with which to construct car ports is timber. Timber is a lightweight and inexpensive material which can be used to make unique and structurally sound carports that can fit virtually any needs. While steel car ports have their advantages. Those made of timber do as well, and will certainly work better for some projects.

Timber Carports offers more options

The main benefit of timber carports is their flexibility in design. With steel carports, there are limited options as far as colors and aesthetics go. Timber provides for a structure that is highly flexible regarding design. These types of carports can be used to fit any project needs. Projects which require the carport to look a specific way or fit a specific style are typically done best with timber carports. They can make for stunning and unique structures. They can even blend in entirely when connected to an adjacent structure, such as a house or other building. Timber carports are also a sustainable alternative, as they can be recycled later. 

Timber CarportsWhile timber carports do have their benefits regarding design options, they are considerably less durable than steel carports. They will also be significantly more vulnerable to weather and natural disasters. With this in mind, anyone looking to install a timber carport should be aware that it will likely need future maintenance to preserve its structural integrity. A severe storm, which hits Melbourne from time to time, could cause it real harm. Much like any wood framed house. In addition, timber car ports tend to be more expensive than their steel counterparts. This is often due to changes in design rather than the material itself. Timber carports require more construction skills to assemble than those made of metal, and we recommend that our customers have their carports professionally installed to ensure their structural integrity.
