Carport-with-cars

Arguably some carport designs are more exotic than others

Purchasing a car is a really big deal but maintaining that car is an even bigger headache. The slightest mistake can cause you to lose a 10 million car in an instant! This is why taking precautions can never be overemphasized. Apart from normal maintenance, you also need to guard your car against natural elements, and this you can do with a carport. Below, we give you a carport in Nigeria guide with all the available designs and prices in Nigeria!

1. Benefits of installing a carport in Nigeria

A carport helps to protect your car from the weather. If you belong to the school of thought that believes harsh weather can't affect your car, then Naijauto has chosen to turn your beliefs around today. If you don't have a garage, a carport is the easiest option to fall back on. These are reasons to own one:

1.1. Effects of weather on your car

We don't experience snow or much hail in Nigeria but we definitely see a lot of sunshine, high winds, and heavy rains. We all know these conditions are tougher in some states than others, so, you have to pay attention to which one can affect you more. It's important you know that extreme weather conditions like these can affect your car internally and externally; your battery, tire, car fluids, and paint-job can be affected by harsh sun-rays and heavy rain. It's up to you to prevent slow destruction like these with a carport.

1.2. Storing a car during periods of unuse

When a car has been out in the open too long, it will start to depreciate. The internal components, glass, and paint will experience some form of corrosion or negative transformation. This can happen without very harsh weather, it just a slower process. If you intend to sell your vehicle later in the future, leaving it in the open without any form of protection is a terrible idea.

1.3. Aesthetics for your home 

Apart from protecting your car, a carport is a form of beautification. The most popular carport designs in Nigeria come in different colors, so you can buy one that blends with the color of your building. It can also be used like a gazebo (protection from sun and rain), where you can sit and sip a cup of juice while scrolling through Naijauto Celebrity News Page.

1.4. Carports protect other things too

It doesn't even have to always be your car that enjoys the protection of a carport, it could be your generator, pet house, motorcycle, or even a boat.

1.5. Save on power

As you know, a carport offers open protection, so it doesn't need electric doors or any sort of power-lifting. All you need do is drive in, step out of your car with your hands filled with groceries, and step right into your house.

1.6. Easy to install and manage

Lastly, it's very easy to install as well as manage thereafter. No need for electrical connection, just a little handwork here and there, and you are set.

Now that we've convinced you to get one, let's educate you on the types of carports we have in Nigeria.

2. Types of carport designs in Nigeria 

There are several types of Carports that are used across the world, some larger and more durable than others. In Nigeria, there are just a few that happen to be mostly used, some more than others. Mostly they are categorized according to the materials used to make them, such as:

  • Skylight Polycarbonate Sheet Roof 

skylight-polycarbonate-sheet-roof

You can see how fashionable it looks.

  • Danpalon Polycarbonate Sheet Roof

danpalon-polycarbonate-sheet-roof

You can have it fixed in any part of your compound.

  • Readymade – PVDF (Polyvinylidene Fluoride) Roof/Customized Setup

readymade-roof

This can be a little more expensive but the installation will be really quick.

  • Net Fabric Roof

This is the most popular carport in Nigeria.

  • Solar Panel Roof

This carport is highly beneficial in two ways, it retains the sunlight for power and then protects your vehicle at the same time.

What materials are needed to build a carport?

In all honesty, building a carport isn't a DIY (Do It Yourself) project, it requires professional handling. Besides, a little assembling mistake can cause an already erected carport to collapse on your car, generator, pet, or even while there's a gathering going on under it. We're pretty sure you don't want this to happen. So, except you're a professional carport installer, we advise you to hire an expert to do the work. 

Roofing sheets materials

However, since there are several designs for carports, there are also different types of roofing sheets that can be used. It's very different for the Solar Panel carport design though, there's little special effect added to that because of the additional purpose it serves.

You have the luxury of choosing a preferred color, and the frameworks can include:

  • Stainless Steel
  • Galvanized
  • Wrought Iron
  • Mild Steel
  • Wood

For the roof, you can always choose from these:

  • Danpalon or Skylight
  • Net Fabric
  • Aluminum Roofing Sheets
  • Polyethylene 
  • Steel Roofing Sheet
  • Polycarbonate Sheets

Finally, the root of the carport has to be grounded with metal Y rods, rooted in a thick mix of cement, gravel, and sand.

If you don't own a carport by now, we're sorry to break it to you that your car may not be able to stand the test of the weather. It's important to look beyond simply washing and servicing your vehicles, the weather might be causing subtle damages that will gradually escalate. Now we shall be informing you about the prices of various types of carports, depending on the number of cars you intend to protect.

3. Carport prices in Nigeria

Just like the sizes, quality, and roofing materials, carport prices vary according to the dealer. The price of each carport type is not automatic because it is dependent on factors like location (distance from the carport company to your preferred destination),  the size and condition of your location, materials involved, carport design, or any other installation needs. All these factors will go a long way in deciding your bill.

The list below is a general cost estimate depending on the type of carport you want. However, we want you to know that your budget should range between ₦120,000 - ₦1.7million. 

Carport type Prices
Net Fabric Roof for 1 car ₦120,000 - ₦150,000
Net Fabric Roof for 2 cars ₦140,000 - ₦170,000
Net Fabric Roof for 4 cars ₦250,000 - ₦300,000
