Carport Canopy installed in Inverness

Wendy approached us with the need of a free-standing Double Carport Canopy. Wendy had already been granted planning permission for a large canopy to be installed at the side of her house, so this sped things up a little bit! Our customer told us that she had been looking for a Carport Canopy for years until she came across Kappion. Wendy knew that Kappion could provide her with the perfect canopy solution that would best suit her needs.


Soon after our estimate, we arranged a site survey at Wendy’s home in Inverness. During our survey, Wendy and Mike expressed to us that they wanted the gutter to be in line with the top of their kitchen door. The reason being, they have a glass panel above the door and they still wanted light to be able to flow in. Wendy went with the curved style canopy, which complements the brick work of her home nicely.

With the canopy being over 8 metres in length, we would need 3 posts on each side to maximise the strength and safety of the canopy. Due to the size of the canopy, it can be used as a multi-purpose canopy. In the summer months you can enjoy meals under shelter, away from bugs and flies. Children can play underneath, utilising the space in the winter time when its wet and/or snowy. 

Wendy signed the final drawings off and chose to have the structure powder coated in Anthracite Grey fine textured (RAL 7016) because it matched with the doors and windows of her property. Not to mention Anthracite Grey gives the canopy a classy and contemporary look. Clear polycarbonate was chosen for the roof glazing in order to allow as much light as possible into the carport and into their home.

Once a manufactured date had been confirmed, the installation team arranged a suitable date for Wendy’s carport canopy to be delivered and erected. Installation of the canopy was straightforward as the canopy fitted the space perfectly and our professional team completed the job without any complications. 

Once installation was complete, we had a final wipe down and hand over with Wendy and Mike, who were overjoyed with the finished product. Our only challenge throughout the whole process was travel. With Wendy and Mike living in Iverness, it was quite the journey from our factory in the West Midlands!
