Are you car proud with a favourite, at home parking spot? Protecting your car from the wrath of the elements can sometimes be a challenging task (particularly with the ever-present British drizzle!). Carports are an excellent choice for those looking to shelter their car, while maintaining an ease of arrival and exit – the kind that doesn’t come with parking in a garage.

SunSpaces offer a wide range of bespoke carport structures – they come in a variety shapes and styles so that they can fit your personal style, location and vehicle. Not only do carports from SunSpaces offer the utility of protecting your car from exposure to nature and the weather, they also make a serious aesthetic statement! Our carports are made using the highest quality materials, with an aluminium frame and polycarbonate roof to keep your car sheltered from rain and sunlight.

What Carport is suitable for you and what Carport types are there around?

 

SunSpaces guarantee that they have a carport to fit your needs. There are two main types of carport: Pitched Roof Carports and Free-Standing Arched Carports – but what is the difference and which one is right for you? Read on to find out: 

Pitched Roof Carports

 

Pitched Roof Carport Type

Pitched Roof Carport

 

Pitched Roof Carports are perfect if you’d like to add shelter to your current drive-way or property. Pitched Roof Carports can fit a range of requirements, they are a great way of utilising the space where you currently park your vehicle. This carport type is fantastic for protecting your vehicle from the elements whilst looking modern – these are not an eye-sore but an eye-catcher. Not only will you have a clean shiny car, you'll have a stylish addition to your home.

We also do Free-Standing Carports which are great for those of you who are looking to have one built away from your property. These are also suitable for business use in a carpark or workspace – they are not just for home use! As you can see from the images above, they are also fantastic for large vehicles like caravans; if you don’t use your caravan all year round, purchasing a free-standing carport is an excellent way of keeping your caravan protected while not in use. Smart huh? 


SunSpaces Free-Standing structures come in single or double frames – so whether it’s a single vehicle you’re looking to protect, or two – we have sizes suitable for you. This carport type is low maintenance and looks extremely stylish, coming in a range of four different colours. Like our Pitched Roof Carport, these are made from high-quality materials; polycarbonate and aluminium, giving you all-round protection whatever the weather. These carports can be customised to your preferences, you get to choose the colour of your carport and the bespoke features you'd like. You can choose from clear (no sunlight blocking), Opal (blocks some sunlight) or Heat-Repelling Clear (protects you from the sun’s rays without blocking light) dependent on your individual preference.

Dorothy wasn’t lying when she said “there’s no place like home” – that’s why we provide awning house attachments to help you extend home that little bit further. Our vast range of Awnings come in a variety of styles to meet your wants and needs. Attaching an awning to your house will give you all the benefits of an outdoor experience, but with the added comforts of home! Read on to find 3 huge benefits of fitting an awning house attachment to your home: 

The House and Beyond

One obvious benefit of house-suited awnings is the extra space they provide. Whether you like to host parties or simply want a comfortable, communal spot to spend quality time with the family, adding an awning attachment to your house will increase the livable space available to you. For those of you who like to enjoy the garden after dark, check out our Lite Awnings – they are fitted with LED lights meaning the party doesn’t stop till you do.

 

 

Whatever the Weather

In Britain we’re used to unpredictable weather; one minute the sun is out, the next rain is pouring. Luckily, retractable awnings give you the power to stay comfortable regardless of the weather. Adding a Retractable Awning to the back of your house means you can remain outside if the heat gets too much, or if the rain starts to fall. Either way, adding an awning to your home definitely means more fresh air for you!

 

 

Stylish and Practical

Fashionistas might tell you there’s no such thing as stylish and sensible – luckily, this isn’t the case when it comes to awnings. Adding an awning to your house not only transforms the space between your home and garden, it also offers a lot of protection. From decking & garden furniture to windows & conservatories awnings add an extra layer of protection that will maintain the quality of your home for longer – all with no extra work.

 

 

Whatever your need, finding an awning to attach to your house is easy when SunSpace offers so many styles to enhance your house and garden! For a free information pack just visit this page!

Outdoor living structures extend the use of your garden and extend the period in which you can use it. If you have a garden that needs that extra wow-factor, an outdoor living structure would be perfect for you. Not only will an outdoor space entice you to go outside more, it will also give you that extra space to relax, unwind and appreciate the outdoor surroundings, whether rain or sun.


There are a range of outdoor living structures on the market and each type of structure has different values, so depending on your style, requirements and property type, there are specific structures we would recommend. Each of the structures we recommend can be externally styled to your choice, however, when it comes to internal décor, we think a table and chairs and maybe a relaxation area works best!

Awnings 

If you currently have a patio or garden area that you would like sheltering, Awnings are the perfect outdoor structure for you, suitable for rain or sun. These are great if you don’t have much space in the garden as they can be retracted when you don’t need them. Awnings are better suited to properties that get a lot of sun as they are good for protecting you from the summer heat-rays without adding that extra space that you may not desire or have. 

 

Compact Awnings 

Compact Awnings are suitable for canopying sun in the summer months! This structure would be best suited to someone who has a smaller-scaled patio/garden area they would like covered, and would be great for domestic customers.

Lite Awnings 

Lite Awnings, however, are a larger outdoor living structure, suited to large verandas or patios. This outdoor structure comes integrated with LED lights so you really do get that wow-factor about your property. We recommend Lite Awnings to those who love being outdoors, especially in the evenings when you can really admire the aesthetic of this outdoor living structure. With their LED lights, this style is great for get-togethers, small parties, evening meals or even, reading and relaxing after a busy day.

Elite Awnings

Who knew there could be so many Awning types?  Elite Awnings are the perfect outdoor living structure if covering a very large parameter, perhaps a hotel/B&B or even someone with a very large home (jealous!!). What’s great about these Awning’s is that they use innovative technology that allows them to be opened and closed with a simple remote!

Verandas

Verandas are a fantastic outdoor living structure if you are after that Awning style but a little more protection against the elements. Verandas can be fit to almost any space and allow you to admire your garden even when it’s raining; is there any better feeling that listening to the rain? Well, you can listen to the rain from the outdoors and stay dry… perfect!  

 

Glass Verandas 

SunSpaces have an array of Veranda types to suit your preference, home, and design. Aspire Verandas add sophistication to your property, without taking up lots of space. The Glass roof of Aspire Verandas mean you can be protected from even the nastiest of weather’s. Glass Verandas can also be detached, meaning you don’t have to have it directly next to your property. If you’d like a detached outdoor living space in another part of your garden, somewhere to relax other than in your home, then Glass Verandas are for you.

These outdoor living structures are made with a canvas roof, you can protect yourself from the shade or sun and retract it when you’d like to catch some rays!
