Heritage Carports

A carport is a covered area under which cars can be parked. Unlike a garage, it is not fully enclosed: carports normally have at least 2 open sides and with freestanding structures, often all sides will be open. Often roller doors or panel lift doors can be added depending on local laws.
At Trueline carports are roofed structures that can be customised to suit your needs. Whether you want it closed on one or more sides, we can create a custom carport based on your needs.

Yes, we have an extensive range of colour options available for all of our Carports. You can easily match your carport to your existing home or to the aesthetic and style you desire to create.

At Trueline, we design and build custom carports. This means that we design, supply and install the carport on your property for an inclusive, fixed price contract.

Duration of build for all of our projects is, of course, dependent on the complexity, size and materials chosen for the design. For a standard 6x6m carport, it typically takes 1-2 days, however at Trueline this duration can be extended based on style and sizing customisation. It is best to speak with your design consultant if you have concerns about your carport build time.

At Trueline, we always make sure to design a carport that fits within your budget, which is why discussing your specific needs with our design consultant is so important.
Of course, cheap carports are a great option if you require something more affordable. However, the benefits of a long-lasting, high-quality carport are unmatched, and investing in a Trueline carport can save you time, money and effort in the long run.

A DIY carport kit costs around $1000 at the low-quality end and $5000 for the higher quality materials. Custom carports usually cost more. It roughly costs an average of $10,000 for a single spot carport and $20,000 for a double carport using quality materials.

In most cases, council approval is required as part of the building process before having a carport installed. Certain factors impact the council approval process, such as the design you choose, the proximity of the structure to the boundary line of your property and most importantly depends on compliance with Local Council requirements.
Trueline works with specialised Certifiers and Surveyors to manage the whole process of Council Approvals on behalf of their customers including Siting Relaxations, Development applications, Fire Engineer Reports to name but a few.

Trueline only operates with the highest standards of quality and performance across different stages of the building process.

Trueline offers lengthy guarantee periods on Single Skin and insulated roofing carports: 

  • 10 Year Product Guarantee
  • 15 Year Workmanship Guarantee
  • 20 Year Base Metal Guarantee
  • 30 Year Corrosion Resistance

This does not cover damages caused by outside influences, such as electrical storms, power surges, storm and tempest or maintenance by unauthorised distributors.

We offer single, double or triple sized carport spaces in both our Kudos and Iconic designs. The most common carport sizes available are:

  • Single Carport: Approximately 6m x 3m. Can comfortably fit a single vehicle.
  • Double Carport: Approximately 6m x 6m. It’s usually the same length as a single, but is wide enough to fit two cars.
  • Triple Carport: Approximately 9m x 6m. Allows you to fit three cars. Make sure you have the space for it!

However, as long as boundaries and available space are not an issue, we will be happy to design and build a carport to your requirements.

Benefits of a carport for your home

There are many benefits to having a carport apart from a space to keep your car, of course! Some of these benefits include:

Protection from the elements

Limited street parking, intense weather conditions and of course, wanting to keep your vehicle safe are all great reasons to invest in a carport. Wanting protection from all of the elements that can damage your car, such as high winds, rain, hail storms or temperature extremities is extremely important.

Frees up space

Adding a carport to your house can free up space in your garage, allowing you to turn it into a home office or gym, use it for extra storage, or to use it as a creative space for your hobbies.

Increase your home's value

A carport will offer an improvement to your home’s overall value. While a simple driveway is always seen as valuable, having a protected space for vehicle storage can increase your home’s value immensely.

And with Trueline’s custom designs, your carport can match to your existing home style and structure.

Additional coverage

Apart from the luxury of having extra storage space, a carport actually offers additional opportunities for outdoor living.  This could be in the form of an outdoor home gym set up, additional entertaining or temporary protected workspace – the possibilities are endless!

Providing an additional structure to your house means that you’ll have extra space for all the outdoor activities you wish to undertake, no matter the weather or time of day.

Custom built carports we offer

At Trueline, we work with clients to design and install custom carports tailored to your needs. We’ll work with you to determine the size and shape best for your property. Then, we’ll bring the plans to life on-site and ensure everything is properly installed so you can enjoy your new carport for years to come! 

We have Three  different carport structures available for you to base your customised carport design off. Our Kudos, Heritage and Pallas designs can be aluminium, insulated or steel carports.

Kudos Carports

The Kudos carport is a standard design carport, with the option for customisation on roof style, material and colours. For sizing, Kudos carports can be made to be single or double spaces, however we are able to commit to any sizing desired as long as it fits within council requirements and your budget. 

Our Kudos carports can be made with a contoured or flat roof, and offer stylish protection from all weather conditions and temperatures. With the option for either aluminium, steel or insulated roofing, you can choose the type of shelter you desire.

You can also customise your design with Trueline’s variety of colours and roofing options to best match your home’s existing style.

Heritage Carports

Our Heritage  carports provide a heavier structural element than that of our Kudos style. With a closed gable roof style, our Heritage  carports can be designed in the Queenslander style or in the modern Hamptons style. 

The Queenslander style offers a traditional take on the Iconic carport, with characteristic features of a gabled roof with options for weatherboard or chamfer board wooden panels and fixtures. The chic Hamptons style puts a modern twist on your design, with a more freestanding beachy style. 

Each style option has additional fixtures and a variety of colour ways available to customise to your individual style. For extra protection from the elements, side and back cladding can be put on your Iconic carport.

Pallas Rendered Carports

With inspiration taken from the latest architectural themes, Pallas brings a cool sophistication to Carports with sculpted bulkheads and columns in a uniquely engineered design framework that makes the crafting of geometric style outdoor environments more economical than traditional forms of rendering. 

Pallas dynamic combination of design and materials creates a glamorous outdoor environment of distinctive proportions in an architectural quality that sets a new standard of luxurious style and liveability with each design personally crafted to match your home, lifestyle and outdoor environment

Custom design opportunities

For those who have a specific style or carport design in mind, we’re here to help. Whether you’re looking for a carport to fit in large vehicles such as boats or caravans,, Trueline can make it happen.

Boatports and vanports

For the summer holidayers and fishing enthusiasts that have boats or a caravan, a carport is a great way to keep your vehicles safe when not in use. At Trueline, we take pride in being able to create custom designs and builds to cater for any outdoor living needs. 

If you want extra width or height to fit your boat or caravan into a carport, all you need to do is speak with your Trueline design consultant.

Freestanding carports

Although Trueline specialises in custom carports that fit, both in style and structure, to your existing house, freestanding carports are always an option. For a carport that isn’t attached to your home, a freestanding carport can be made with all the same materials, roofing choices and customisation options.

Carport sizes available

All of our  carports come in various sizing. Of course, since we specialise in customisation, if standard sizing does not fit into your design desires, we’re happy to accommodate larger, smaller or unique sized builds. 

Single carport

A single carport is the typical or most-standard size for a carport. It occupies an area of approximately 3m X 6m  and can comfortably fit a singular vehicle. If your car or vehicle is oversized it may be difficult to fit in this space. Make sure to discuss height, width and length with your Trueline design consultant if you have any concerns.

Double carport

A double carport is simply an extension of a single carport, except that it has space for two standard size vehicles. This may be a side-by-side spacing – 6m x 6m, where two cars can fit next to each other, or lengthways, where two cars fit one behind another – 3m x 12m.

Triple carports

A triple carport has space for three separate vehicles and can accommodate larger objects such as boats or caravans along with a standard size or smaller car. A triple carport carport comes in a 9m x 6m and is great for extra storage space.

Our carport building process

The first step is to get in contact with our team for you to begin working out what your custom carport will look like.
