Car Port

test.jpg

A friend wants to build a carport, any suggestions?

Wood? (I assume the under roof supports should be timber)

Paint or natural finish for minimal maintenance?

Or metal?

And the best paint type again for minimal maintenance?

We used an excellent paint (even over rust spots) for our balcony railings in Turkey and it was still good after 10 years but I canít now remember the name.

Any suggestions most welcome.

The Turkish name was Polymetal that we used similar to Hammerite in fact could well be the same, where is it to be built and what are the weather conditions ?

Re: Car Port

There is a Turkish firm that makes a version of hammerite, but I do not remember the name. We designed our own and had it built. Steel frame, wooden roof and tiles on top. It is as good as new after 12 years, we repainted the steel frame once.

To tell the truth I'm for metal. It is always more reliable and durable
