Timber Carports
Beautiful & functional

Simple & practical car port

An Olson carport provides cover for your car and can be constructed from either oak or treated softwood. The beauty of this style of timber building is it leaves a view open and light able to reach beyond where a traditional garage may be too overpowering.

Car ports require less space and free-standing options have fewer planning implications and are available in various styles and sizes to suit your driveway.

completely bespoke

Stylish, traditional or contemporary timber carports

With solid support posts and our signature handmade curved bracing cut from either treated FSC certified treated softwood or timeless oak, an Olson carport is built to look great for many years to come.

Roof covering options vary from lightweight, low maintenance Onduline to stunning natural cedar shingles or traditional tiles to match surrounding properties. Support posts are raised off the ground by traditionally shaped saddle stones and timber supports can be left to naturally weather or stained in situ as desired.

Visually appealing, a carport offers a cost-effective solution to keeping your vehicles protected from the elements all year round. Built to last, we guarantee the workmanship on all our timber buildings for 5 years.

Roofing Options

Our timber buildings are available with a range of roofing options. Below are the different types of roofing material that you can choose between. Most of our standard building specifications include Onduline or are finished ready for tiling by a roofing specialist.

Onduline
Onduline

A durable and easy to install roofing option, onduline is ideal for stables and garages.

Onduline

Available in several colours, these corrugated sheets are made from recycled fibres that are then saturated with bitumen under controlled pressure and heat conditions. The result is a uniform, hardwearing roof backed by a 15-year manufacturers guarantee. The colours are impregnated into the material so do not require maintenance. The only thing you need to do is keep the leaves off and clear the gutters. This is our standard roof for stables as it has the ability to deaden the sound of rain.

Onduvilla
Onduvilla

Made from recycled fibres, Onduvilla is a lightweight, quick to install but durable roofing material offering a natural tile look.

Onduvilla

The sister product to Onduline, Onduvilla is similar in being made from recycled fibres but is in an overlapping tile format (installed as sheets). The roof is coloured with variations to replicate the look of a clay tiled roof. With a 15-year manufacturer guarantee, this lightweight roofing material is laid over a boarded roof and can installed on any of our building ranges.

Cedar Shingles
Cedar Shingles

Cedar Roof Shingles are a natural, stunning and easy maintenance roofing option.

Cedar Shingles

Cedar shingles add to the natural look of a timber building. They will weather naturally over time and blend into the background whilst requiring very little maintenance. As a natural material, other than the process of timber felling and delivery, this is the lowest carbon roofing option. We can install cedar shingles on any of our OTB2 and OTB3 buildings.

Tiled Roof
Tiled Roof

Natural slate or clay roof tiles

Tiled Roof

Offering a traditional look, clay or slate tiles are ideal for complimenting surrounding buildings. All our OTB3 buildings (subject to pitch) are ready to receive a heavier roofing tile. As we install timber buildings all over the UK we prefer to do what we do best, timber buildings, and then you will need to instruct your own local roofer for this option.

Tapco Tiles
Tapco Tiles

A composite alternative to traditional tiles, Tapco offers low maintenance, easy installation and natural looks.

Tapco Tiles

Tapco offers a slate look without the cost. These composite tiles can be installed by our own team and are durable and long-lasting. Tapco tiles can be installed on relatively shallow pitched roofs are available in various colours and shades as well as styles of tile.

Barn Hip
Barn Hip

A half hip roof

Barn Hip

A barn hip offers the benefits of a cutaway at the end of the roof with a barn-style gable end. A few reasons to consider a barn hip include allowing more light to pass over the building reducing the impact on your garden or neighbours or if planners are concerned about size and mass, this can be a compromise. We also like the aesthetic that a barn hip gives to a timber building.

Full Hip
Full Hip

A fully hipped roof is great option, particularly on larger buildings as the roof 'looks' smaller.

Full Hip

Visually, a fully hipped roof reduces the profile of a roof so that it looks smaller and more visually appealing.

Cladding & Lining

Many of our timber buildings are available with a choice of cladding as well as a number of internal lining options for walls and ceilings. Depending upon the specification you choose, some will be standard and some will be available for an additional cost.

Ply Roof Lining
Ply Roof Lining

Using ply for roof lining gives a clean and flexible internal finish

Ply Roof Lining

An upgrade from our standard OSB boarding, ply brings a smart and stylish interior finish that is well suited to studios and offices as well as workshops or stables. Providing structural rigidity as well as aesthetics you can leave the ply bare, paint or plasterboard over it.

Rear/Side Wall
Rear/Side Wall

An optional wall to enclose the rear or side of your car port

Rear/Side Wall

Although a carport is usually open on all sides, we are able to enclose the rear and/or side of the carport should you, for example, need some additional shelter from the prevailing wind and weather. We frame and clad the wall in a choice of pressure-treated weatherboard or shiplap. If you need more sides enclosed, take a look at our carriage houses.

Shiplap
Shiplap

Shiplap timber cladding is a treated softwood cladding with a clean profile

Shiplap

Shiplap cladding has an overlap and rebate that gives a naturally tight fit and a low profile. Sourced from a FSC certified supplier and pressure treated, shiplap is low maintenance. Treated shiplap can be painted or stained but this is not required.

Weatherboard
Weatherboard

Weatherboard cladding is well suited for a more traditional look, treated and ready for years of service

Weatherboard

Our most popular finish for carriage houses and oak framed garages, weatherboard has a tapered profile with each board overlapping the next in a traditional style seen on timber buildings for several centuries. Well suited to a country setting or period building, the boards are treated prior to installation and are sourced only from FSC certified timber suppliers. Weatherboard can be painted or stained but this is not required thanks to the preservation process.

OSB Roof Boarding
OSB Roof Boarding

OSB boards add extra support and rigidity

OSB Roof Boarding

The use of OSB roof boarding both gives a nicer finish to the inside of your building and adds strength to the design.

Pressure Treated Supports & Headers
Pressure Treated Supports & Headers

Square profile, pressure treated timber supports, headers & curved bracing.

Pressure Treated Supports & Headers

A standard option on many of our timber buildings, these solid, pressure treated timbers are used for the support posts and headers.
