Habrita Single Slope Carport

Editor’s note: 4.5 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon

awning habrita single-sided awningA wooden awning… and for 2 cars! The Habrita Mono-Slope Carport is assembled with excellent quality materials for perfect durability. Its entire structure (posts, frame, pediments, rafters, etc.), in fir or fir depending on availability (PEFC certification), has been effectively dried, brushed and treated with insecticides and fungicides. Thanks to the metal plates provided, the shelter can be more easily fixed on a hard ground while, for its protection, the roof consists of a rolled bituminous tile. Generously sized, it occupies a constructed area of ​​22.85m² (28.44m² with overhang), 5.86m long and 3.90m deep. The passage height is 2.20 m but the total height reaches 3.40 m.

My opinion : Probably the best option if you have 2 cars to park! This Habrita Mono-Pente canopy is of excellent quality and really well designed. It has enough space to park large vehicles perfectly protected. For assembly, I’m not going to lie to you, it will surely be better if one or two more people accompany you, weighing the various beams for their low weight. But it is also with this type of detail that you will realize how robust the structure that you will put in your home is and that it will be able to resist for many years. Two places are essential, the price is not within the reach of all budgets, but if you have the means and the needs, do not hesitate, it is a very good choice!

Palaram Arcadia

Editor’s note: 4.5 / 5 | Reward : See the price on Amazon

garage garage palram arcadiaA beautiful extension for the house! Any car can be parked under the Palram Arcadia because this carport is available in a large number of different sizes. From 4.30 m long for the smallest vehicles to 12.85 m (for parking two or more cars), the possibilities are numerous. Regardless of the version chosen, this shelter only offers advantages since, in addition to being very elegant, it has excellent durability. Robust thanks to its aluminum frame and polycarbonate panels, it is also resistant to oxidation and requires no maintenance. Delivered in a ready-to-assemble kit (pre-cut and perforated panels), it is the essential element to avoid any damage caused by the sun and bad weather, especially since it is resistant to strong winds and a lot of snow!

My opinion : Superior quality! Palram’s Arcadia range is very practical because it is available according to your needs: even if you have a pick-up to which you attach a trailer, you can find your shelter without any problem! What I also liked about these carports is that they have excellent build quality, right down to the finishes, which are almost perfect. The assembly is also very well explained and is carried out without real difficulty, even if a little helping hand is not denied, especially when the chosen model gains in volume. It’s super strong, holds up well, protects well, and looks super pretty (especially if you like modern aluminum designs). If you want to afford it, you will still have to spend a small amount on it, but you should not regret your investment at all!

marquee marquee timbelaClosed for maximum protection! This Timbela is not just a carport but a real carport. With an interior surface of up to 18 m² (3 m wide, 6 m deep and 2.22 m high under the ceiling), it can even store bicycles, tools and garden furniture such as lawnmowers, barbecues, etc Built 100% in wood, and more precisely in Nordic fir, the 17 mm thick panels guarantee perfect resistance and great durability over time. Lockable for added security, it also has a double-sided waterproof felt roof to keep all your stuff dry. Thanks to the presence of plexiglass windows, it is also not necessary to leave the doors open to see clearly, enough to also be able to use it as a small DIY workshop.

My opinion : This Timbela is clearly not a classic garage! By opting for a completely closed design, it knows how to make itself much more versatile than the other carports in this selection, and for a very similar price. Having doors, walls and even natural light inside changes everything. Then you can think of it as an extra room, not only designed to house your vehicle, but also to store anything that might be lying around in your yard. It then becomes very practical, in particular because with its wooden construction, it is resistant, its roof makes it perfectly waterproof and thanks to its spacious interior and its wide doors, you can put in and take out bulky objects. . If you want a safer solution for your car, this is also a good alternative.

cerland garageThe wooden carport in all its simplicity! The Cerland opts for a class 3 autoclaved pine structure, and therefore resistant to episodes of humidity and drought. In detail, it is made up of 6 posts with a diameter of 9 cm for great solidity and thanks to the large internal dimensions (2.62 m wide, 4.70 m long, 2.07 m high for a surface of 12.32 m²), it is suitable for most car models. These are also perfectly protected since the shelter is completed by a transparent PVC cover. Delivered as a kit, its assembly is simple and quick since the various elements are pre-assembled and the fixing holes are pre-drilled. Note that with the width of the posts and the overhang of the roof, a surface of at least 16 m² on the ground is necessary to be installed.

My opinion : If your budget is pretty tight but you still don’t want to buy a carport that won’t last, you should consider this Cerland: in my opinion, it’s one of the best value for money you can find. Everything is not perfect, and I am thinking in particular of your PVC ceiling, which is not the most solid solution. However, it makes up for it with its nice wooden frame, which is very sturdy, and the fact that I found it fairly easy to assemble. If the screws are provided, you will have to find a solution yourself if you want to fix it to the ground. It is therefore not the most complete, but thanks to its low price, it is still quite attractive!
