Our customer Brian contacted us with the requirement of a long carport, attached to the right side of his property and finishing at his garage. Brian wanted protection from the high winds, bird faeces, and falling debris from the surrounding trees when getting in and out of his vehicle. Brian fell in love with our canopy designs and knew we could deliver the perfect bespoke solution.
For us, the design was fairly straightforward. Following the site survey we determined that the carport needed to be tapered with different lengths and widths. The tapered carport also needed to feature cranked posts to avoid the soffits on the house. We also attached slotted tops to our posts on the right side of the carport. This gives us some contingency when installing the carport.
Due to the position of the garage at the rear, we had to mount the eaves beam to garage wall using a wall plate. This allows Brian to fully utilise his garage space which no posts in the way. We set the posts in concrete with rebar for the ultimate strength.
Brian signed the final drawings off and chose for his structure to be powder coated in RAL 9005 (Jet Black), which would compliment and blend with the surroundings. Brian chose clear polycarbonate for the roof glazing because it allows the most amount of light to pass through into the canopy.
Once a manufactured date had been confirmed, the installation team arranged a suitable date for the canopy to be delivered and erected.
Installation of the canopy was easygoing due to the accessibility of the installation location, our installation teams planning and also because of our high-spec laser scanner used during the site survey. The Kappion fitting team were efficient and the tapered carport was installed in two days.
Once installation was finished, our fitters had a final wipe down and hand over with Brian, who was ecstatic with what had been delivered.
