A carport is a valuable investment for your vehicle and home in Melbourne, VIC. It shelters your car from the elements and any debris that may lead to costly damage.
This means protecting your car, caravan, or boat from the harsh summer sun and winter storms, or even the random sports ball coming in from the neighbours. It also makes everyday tasks more convenient. No one loves sitting in a scorching hot car that’s been under the sun all day or having to load or unload a car in the pouring rain.
It can also function as an additional alfresco space for your home. With a variety of colours and styles available, you can easily choose a Stratco carport that blends seamlessly with your home’s existing design.
It’s always recommended to hire professionals to install your chosen carport to ensure it is installed properly. Here at Outdoor Impressions, we are dedicated to finding you the highest quality carport that will last a lifetime.
CHOOSING HIGH QUALITY CARPORTS MELBOURNE
Some people have said that Melbourne goes through the four seasons in one day. This fickle weather might sometimes be tricky to gauge, what with windy weather, fluctuating temperatures and rainfall throughout the year.
So it’s important that if you’re wanting to keep your vehicle safe from the elements, you take the right precautionary measures to provide ample shelter and space when you park your car. Investing in carports Melbourne not only ensures protection no matter what the weather throws at you, but peace of mind, too.
MELBOURNE’S BEST CARPORTS
One of the single best ways to protect your car from potential hail, wind, sun or rain damage is a custom carport. From design to approval, all the way through to final unveiling, Outdoor Impressions can take you the whole way. Whether your house is blue, red, grey or pink there’s a range of stratco products we’ll use to build you a carport that perfectly complements your home.
While a single or double car garage might be a more secure and comprehensive protection option, a carport is less visually impactful, cheaper and quicker to build. For a solution perfectly tailored to your Melbourne home, get in touch today.

WHAT IS A CARPORT?
A carport is a cost-effective way to protect your vehicle from outdoor elements. A semi-covered structure, it’s designed to store your car safely, away from the damaging UV rays of the sun, which can cause paint to peel, as well as harsh winds, rain, and hail. Typically, a carport is open from at least two sides, though there are designs that can either be attached to the home, or be free-standing, making it easier to plan out your outdoor space.

Here at Outdoor Impressions, we are dedicated to finding you the highest quality carport that will last a lifetime. We will work with you to understand your needs and requirements of your home, and will install your new carport.
When installing any outdoor structure, including a carport, it is important to check with your local council about the requirements of adding a new structure. They may have specific guidelines in place for carport installation, so it’s important to check to avoid delays and setbacks.
Here at Outdoor Impressions, organising and managing permits for your specific installation is our job, so you can have peace of mind. We will discuss any potential permits required during the quoting stage, so you’ll know exactly what’s going on from the get-go.
DOES A CARPORT ADD VALUE TO THE HOME?
If you don’t already have a garage, a carport is easier to build, and is more affordable in terms of materials and labour needed to construct. This means that it’s definitely the more affordable option when trying to protect your vehicle from the elements.
Carports offer a wide range of benefits for the homeowner:
- Strong and durable, carports create security for your car, lowering your insurance premiums
- They lessen the risk of UV ray damage, as well as harsh weather and debris
- Carports look great and make a positive first impression of the home, tucking your vehicles away so that your home’s exterior looks tidy and put together
- They are fantastic for families, who may take a little longer to get into the vehicle and want to avoid rainy weather or harsh sun
- The heavy duty roof will keep your car nice and cool in the summer – no more burning your hands on that hot steering wheel!
- What’s more, carports can be used to enhance your outdoor living areas. Not only are they perfect for protecting your car, but they are also a great space to host your next get-together. Place your outdoor seating underneath your perfect carport, and you’ve got a multipurpose outdoor living space to boot!
Traditionally, timber carports were a popular choice for homeowners. However, recently, more and more clients have been going for the highest quality materials available and installing steel carports for durability and style.
When selecting carports in Melbourne, you can’t go wrong with Stratco. These well-designed carports are built to last, and designed specifically for Australian weather conditions, making them effective and durable.

WHICH CARPORT IS RIGHT FOR ME?
It’s important to keep your home’s aesthetic and your requirements in mind when choosing a carport. This can help you to decide which carport is the best fit for your home, both visually and structurally.
You also have to take into consideration how much sheltered space you need for when you’re utilising the carport for entertaining and outdoor living purposes, if that’s something you’re interested in.
Whatever you’re after, there’s a carport design out there that is perfect for your home.

CARPORTS vs. VERANDAHS
It’s important to note that not all properties might be suited for the installation of a patio.
If you’re renting, for example, you’ll want a space that’s multipurpose, but also easy to install and dismantle when you need it. Carports can be a great outdoor solution that not only provide shelter for your vehicle, but also give you a sheltered outdoor space that can be used for entertaining or relaxation. Your imagination is the limit, and carports have been used in a huge range of creative ways. And whether you’re renting another home and moving, or beginning your life in your very own home, you’ll be able to take your carport with you, ensuring that your investment will keep being useful for the years to come.
Perhaps your property size isn’t suitable for the installation of a patio due to lack of outdoor space. Verandahs are also a great way of extending your living area by installing a smaller wraparound space with roofing, perfect for entertaining guests, gardening, and even just sitting to watch the world go by in the privacy of your own property. The end result is an outdoor space that not only adds style to your home’s facade, but also works with your space constraints. Our experts at Outdoor Impressions will be able to work with you to find out what fits your needs: whether it’s a patio, a carport, a verandah, or a pergola.
