When adding a small detached building, provided that there are no sleeping accommodations and that the floor area is less than 15 square metres, then building regulations normally aren’t a factor, however local regulations may apply depending on your area. Between 15 and 30 square metres of floor area and building regulations still don’t apply as long as there are no sleeping accommodations and it is constructed of substantially non-combustible materials or is at least one metre from any boundary. If required, we can provide free of charge scaled drawings to assist in the application process.

An average Carport we supply is 5M x 2.5M = 12.5 square metres so would not require planning permission and that goes for most domestic requirements. When providing a Quote we will always consider the location and possibility of planning permission using the defined regulations and consideration of the canopies purpose/use.

Maintenance

Payment

The carport is strong enough to walk on but we recommend you use a crawler board to evenly spread out the load.  Please ensure your own safety when on top of the shelter or using ladders and if possible have another person with you.

To keep the Carport in pristine condition we recommend from time to time the following cleaning tips

Keep Gutters free from debris, i.e. fallen leaves to ensure water flows directly into the outlet
Any dirt or marks on the supporting beams can be removed using warm water with washing up liquid and a soft cloth
Build up of bird droppings or dirt on the roofing sheets can also be removed using warm soapy water
You may find it easier to use a long handled brush and a step ladder. The carport is strong enough to walk on but we recommend you use a crawler board to evenly spread out the load.
