Carport Kits – Why a well designed and pre-engineered carport kit will save you time and money

Pre-Engineered Carport Kits

Carports are a very popular addition to any house these days.

The engineering design requirements for them are integral to you achieving what you want at your home

In years gone past a lot of carports were done without any design or approval process. If a builder had built it, chances are it was good, but the cost might have been high, due to more materials being used than what was needed. There were also a lot of other carports that simply shouldn’t have been built, due to poor construction or inferior materials being used.
However today, with better materials and better research, a lot more is known about designing a carport that is strong enough for your area, and is economical to build. Regulations also now in place dictate that a carport be correctly designed and certified by a suitably skilled and qualified person.

Choosing carport kits that are pre-engineered can save you a substantial amount of money and time. Here are some reasons why:

• The design has been done – Your carport has gone through the design process by a structural engineer to bring you a carport design that is not only pleasing to the eye, but will also pass the building standards, and wind and weather conditions for your particular site.
• The design drawings have been done – Most engineers employ a separate draftsperson to transform their design onto paper. Design drawings are now required to be done by a licenced person to obtain approval, and their time and skill comes at a price.
• Pre-engineered carport kits are good value for money – achieving a carport design that is strong enough (but economical on materials), looks great and is simple to install does take a high level of skill. Structural engineers who specialise in carports and similar structures know the best way to design them. They’ve done the research of choosing the best materials, and can provide you with the best carport kit for your money.
• Pre-engineered carports can be ready to submit for council approval within days, not weeks or months – all the hard work has already been done, it’s a simple case of adding your details to the engineering forms and drawings, and you are ready to go.
