What sort of carports do you supply?

We have an excellent range of lean-to carports to suit any size or style of vehicle.

What materials do Stormclad canopies and carports come in?

Stormclad carports are built using powder coat aluminium framing and a choice of polycarbonate or glass roofing, designed to your unique specification. Our over-door canopies are manufactured from GRP fibreglass, available in a full range of colours and styles.

Do we need planning permission?

This depends on where the carport or canopy will be fitted. Our technical Surveyor reviews every individual case and, should you need planning permission for your carport or canopy, we will fully manage the application from start to finish.

What is a carport?

A carport is a covered glazed system which will allow you to park your car, ensuring it is covered from the harsh weathers. We install a vast range of designs, sizes and styles to suit any property.

What is a glass veranda?

A veranda is a glazed system which extends from your property. Unlike a conservatory which performs like a room, a veranda is a covered area which provides shelter from the weathers yet allows you to enjoy the outdoor fresh air. It's perfect for the summer months for a covered area in your garden.

How big can a glass veranda be?

If you're looking to add a large covered area in your home, our glass verandas can be installed as large as 3.5 metres wide. The perfect size for outdoor furniture, a BBQ and plenty of space to entertain friends and family.

Do carports and verandas come with a guarantee?

Like all of our home improvements, our carports and glass verandas come with a 10 year guarantee as standard, giving you peace of mind.

What material are your carports and verandas made from?

We install aluminium carports and verandas because it's the strongest construction material available on the market. This means they offer exceptional lifespans and will stay intact, no matter the tough weathers outside. They won't rust, corrode or split over time either.

What glazing do you use?

You can choose between either self-cleaning glass, standard glass or polycarbonate glass.

What decorative options are available?

We offer decorative pillar options as well as optional LED lights to add a bespoke touch to your glazed system.

What are the colour options for a carport or veranda?

Aluminium is a highly versatile material, so you'll be able to choose from over 150+ RAL colours, ensuring a solution that suits any type of home.

How big can a carport be?

Our carport systems can be installed as large as a 4m projection with a 16mm polycarbonate roof.

How long will a carport or veranda last?

Made from the highest-quality materials and leading manufacturing techniques, our glazed systems boast a lifespan of at least 25 years, without requiring any maintenance or upkeep to ensure that they continue to look and perform like new.
