A flat-roof carport can be up to 50% more expensive than a more traditional pitched carport. The cost of a flat-roof carport typically runs from R300 / sqm to R1000 / sqm, averaging at R650 / sqm.Get quotes!

Shade ports are a cost-effective alternative to traditional solid carports, made of metal or wood. Instead of sheeting, they use a shade netting made from high-density polyethylene, which is a light-weight yet robust material. The framework is usually made of steel and can rest on four columns, two columns (cantilever) or be be mounted into a wall. Shadeports also come in different sizes and configurations. They are usually sized to the number of carports they can hold: single (2,5x5m), double (5x5m) and triple (7,5x5m). The average cost of a shade-net carport is R400 / sqm, or typically between R200 / sqm and R600 / sqm.Get quotes!
