We specialize in the manufacturing & erection of Carport structures. Our Carports consists solely of steel products namely: powder coated steel roof sheets, steel beams, steel uprights and specially extruded steel concealed box guttering. Being based in Durban where the temperatures and humidity are of serious concern, we insist that all mild steel beams and uprights are hot-dip galvanized.

The metal roof sheets that are commonly used are the Galvanised, Zincalume, Chromadek, Colorplus and Aluminium IBR profile roof sheets. With the exception of the Galvanized and Zincalume roof sheets, all other roof sheets and concealed facier box gutters are factory powder coated (mainly white) to extend the lifespan, enhance the look and to avoid expensive painting and maintenance.

Despite other varieties of Carports like: wood, fiberglass and shadecloth; we opted to offer a more permanent solution with the longest and most durable lifespan. Unlike wood which rots; fiberglass which hardens, cracks and blows away; shadecloth which frays and collect dust. Our carports are waterproof, and withstands any and all-weather conditions!

To cater for the homeowner who is concerned about the sunlight that is obscured, we offer the alternative of using translucent Polycarbonate roof sheets, which consists of a high-quality resin with a glass-like clarity. It is strong, very durable, flexible and hail resistant.
