The right craftsmen for your carport

The right craftsmen for your carport

A carport has to bear heavy snow loads in winter. That is why you should have your carport built or assembled by experts. For a wooden carport, it is best to hire a carpenter or joiner, and for a metal carport, a metal worker or tinsmith. The craftsmen measure the area, plan the project, concrete the foundation, insert the post supports and assemble the carport.

Metal carport

A metal carport is cheaper, easier to maintain and more durable than one made of wood. Galvanised steel and anodised aluminium are rust-proof, withstand wind and weather and can be powder-coated. The lightfast coating does not fade in UV light and still looks like new even after decades. Because a metal carport can carry loads of up to 200+ kilograms, you can, for example, green it or mount a photovoltaic system on the roof.

Wooden carport

Wooden carport

A wooden carport costs less than one made of metal, but it is more susceptible to humidity, insects or weathering and requires more maintenance. Native wood such as spruce or larch contains a lot of tree resin and is more resistant than other woods. The wood should be pre-treated and must be treated with wood preservative every two years. Pay attention to the load-bearing capacity (at least 85 kilograms per square metre).

Costs for a carport

The costs for a carport are made up of material costs and labour costs. A wooden carport costs about 7,500 to 15,000 Swiss francs, a metal one several times that. Very simple wooden carports are available in DIY stores for a few hundred francs. For this, you have to plan the construction, submit the building application, pour the foundation, consider the statics and assemble the carport.
