The good, the bad and the ugly of Melbourne carports

If you’re in the market for a new carport for your Melbourne home, chances are the homes with carports that you wouldn’t have even glanced at a few months ago are now as captivating as your favourite TV series. However, if you are taking a good look around at carports, you’ll have noticed that not all carports are created equal. Some are good, some are bad and some are just downright ugly.

The bad Melbourne carport

A carport can fit into the bad category for a number of reasons. They might be just that bit too small to occupy the one or two cars they were meant to fit, they might be jammed up against the neighbouring fence or they might simply be so old that they were built when Methuselah was a child!

The ugly Melbourne carport

A carport can be ugly for a number of reasons. Perhaps it hasn’t been maintained and the paint is peeling, the rust showing and the roof flapping in anything approximating a wind. Or then there are those that are subtly displeasing to the eye and you may not even be able to work why? Often, it’s because it looks like the carport was built next to the wrong home. A modern carport has been built next to an older style home or vice-a-versa. Or a carport has been built in a style, or with materials and colours, that simply don’t match or complement the home.

The good Melbourne carport

By now you should have a good understanding of what the good Melbourne carport looks like. It will be large enough to fit one or more cars (or a caravan or boat if required), it will provide adequate space for passengers to easily get into and out of their cars, it will be in good condition, and it will be built in a style, and with materials and colours, that match or complement the home.

Easy! Or is it?

For most people it’s more difficult than you might think, although for experienced professionals, like the ones at Mr Carports in Melbourne, it is pretty easy. Although, each project and each site can throw up its challenges. Smaller sites, trees, rocks found on excavating, council planning requirements, heritage overlay are amongst the issues that can make achieving the good Melbourne carport a challenge.
