What Are Carports Made From?

The last thing you want to do after buying a brand new car is to leave it exposed to the harsh Australian weather conditions. If your home doesn’t currently have a carport or you’re current one is occupied, you may need to consider installing a durable shelter for your vehicles in order to protect it from rain, body damaging hail and paint-peeling sun rays.

But what is the best steel to build your carport from? You want something that is going to be long-lasting a provide your vehicle with the adequate protection from weather conditions. Steel carports have proven to be the best material by far due to its sturdiness and reliability. Here at SA Quality Home Improvements, we specialise in Adelaide carports and only work with Colorbond steel because we believe it is the best material for the job. Here’s why:


Colorbond Steel

Manufactured in Australia by BlueScope Steel, Colorbond steel, is produced in Australia to meet Australian standards. Colorbond steel is made from a steel metal sheet base combined with a zinc/aluminium coating to prevent corrosion. The steel is then covered with a conversion layer and baked with a polyester primer on its surface, and finally covered with an exterior paint top coat to maximise durability.


The Benefits of Colorbond Steel Include:


Thermal Efficiency

Each sheet of Colorbond steel is made with thermal efficiency technology that reflects the sun’s rays. Making it great for keeping your carport and vehicle(s) cool during the hot Australian summer.



With Australia’s weather conditions, it is essential that you have a carport that is sturdy and durable in any situation. Steel is the perfect material to provide you with a structure that is sturdy and hard-wearing. We choose Colorbond Steel because it’s durable, long-lasting and lightweight. An investment for your home that will be around as long as you are!


Colour Choice

We offer our Colorbond roofing solutions in a wide array of colours, enabling you to create a carport design that perfectly complements your home. We promise to work with you to match your carport to your existing roof colour or help you go with something completely different.

Another added benefit to consider is the little to no maintenance of a steel structure compared to that of another material.
