Whatever your lifestyle, you’ll love the Dutch gable roof carport. Let's look at some of its benefits...

Benefits of Dutch gable carports

Weather protection

For maximum protection for your car, the Dutch gable carport makes an excellent choice. This carport’s design incorporates eaves on all sides, protecting your vehicle from rain and snow. This also provides extra shade, helping keep your car's interior cool even in hot weather.

Heavy duty

Ever wondered what the gable on top of a Dutch gable roof is for? If you're thinking it's nothing more than a decorative touch, think again. The standalone gable on these roofs helps disperse rain. This feature directs water down the drip edge, keeping the roof dry and less likely to be damaged. That little gable also creates extra ventilation for your carport – so it’s much more than just a decoration!

Customise it

Our Dutch gable roofs often feature a 22-degree pitch, matching most homes perfectly. But not only that – you can customise this carport to your taste and needs. Choose the height, length, colour, span (and more!) of your carport to suit you. Just tell us what you want your carport to look like and we’ll bring it to life with our state-of-the-art software.

Add property value

You don't want to invest in a carport that doesn't add any value to your property. One reason a Dutch gable carport is a great choice is that it makes your property stand out.
