How do I create an enclosed carport?

Creating an enclosed carport

Your carport is an outdoor facility that evolves according to your needs and the seasons. If you want to provide more security, more protection from the weather and to enjoy your carport as a pergola during the summer months, you might want to think about closing it off, either completely or partially.

Permanent enclosure

For this, there are several solutions:

  • A breeze block or brick wall. This is a drastic yet effective solution, but it may not fit in with the rest of the carport. We advise you to have it built by a professional.

  • A wooden partition or panelling. Regular maintenance is required for this type of material, which, although resistant, has a number of weaknesses.

  • Sheet metal panelling, inexpensive, but not particularly strong.

Temporary enclosure

There are several ways to enjoy your carport in all seasons:

  • Tarpaulin is practical for rainy days or when you want to add shade to your carport. Although inexpensive, it is also weak and flimsy, and may need to be assembled and disassembled several times.

  • A mosquito net can be a good alternative if you want to be protected from pests but still let light in when using your carport as a pergola. However, it has the same disadvantages as tarpaulins in terms of strength and installation.
