Frequently asked questions

Find out more about how Shift to Solar works

How big can a carport be without planning permission?

Without a permit, the carport may not exceed 3 metres in height. The exact rules and conditions may vary from one municipality to another. Therefore, it is always advisable to check with your local municipality about the specific rules and conditions for building a carport without a permit.

How much space do I need for a carport?

An average car needs a parking space about 2.5 metres wide and 5 metres long. A single carport should therefore have at least these dimensions, but often this is a lot wider. You need to allow for extra space to get in and out easily and to accommodate the carport. The minimum recommended dimensions for a carport are 3 by 6 metres (18 m²). Are you unsure about the possibilities? We will be happy to advise you.

How long does a carport last?

The lifespan of a carport, whether it is made of wood or steel, depends on several factors. A well-maintained carport can last 20 to 40 years or more. Regular painting or staining and treating the wood against insects and fungus can extend its lifespan. On average, a steel carport lasts longer than a wooden one.

What are the advantages of a home carport?

  • A carport protects vehicles from harmful weather conditions.
  • A carport offers convenience when getting in and out, especially during bad weather.
  • Adding a carport can increase the value of a property.
  • Carports can be easily adapted or extended, for example with solar panels.

What materials are carports made of?

Carports can be made of different materials, including wood, metal, aluminium and plastic. At Shift to Solar, you can choose between wood and steel. Depending on the material you choose, there are differences in the cost, lifespan and look of the carports. Take contact with us for more information and advice.
