DIY Carport Kits
Made To Measure
Glass or Poly’ Roof
Full Technical Support
We’re pleased to offer our superior, NuBuild Carport Kits to the trade & DIY market.
These carport & canopy systems were originally intended exclusively for installation by our own fitting teams, but you can now buy direct & save £££’s by installing yourself…
Delivery is included in the cost – anywhere in the UK, and you’ll receive our legendary customer service if you need any technical help!
We supply our systems to the trade and DIY market in kit form, so if you’re handy with a few basic tools, you can literally save £100’s by installing the structure yourself. Our carports are completely bespoke, and far superior to budget kits which generally do not stand the test of time.
The savings are substantial as we do not need to send our fitting teams around the country with accommodation costs and expenses, however for peace of mind we have created a comprehensive installation guide & video, backed up by technical support via telephone or email should you need it.
Our systems are easy to install and rarely require technical support from ourselves, but rest assured you have our help if you need it.. They are generally erected within a day by a couple of competent DIYer’s (or local tradesmen if you don’t want to get your own hands dirty)
Our Nubuild Carports & Canopies are supplied in Regal-White powder-coat aluminium finish, specified to BS EN 12206-1:2004, or you can choose any other RAL colour for an additional cost if you want to match your doors and windows etc.
All stainless steel fixings and sealants are supplied to complete the installation, and to give a lifetime maintenance-free finish.
Additionally, the roof material can be specified from clear, bronze or blue 16mm polycarbonate triple-wall sheets with UV protection build in at no additional cost. Alternatively, toughened glass can be supplied dependant on your taste, budget and requirements.
The framework is formed with our own patented die’s, creating beautiful profiled extrusions (rather than plain box-section found with other carport kits), to create an elegant look that will enhance your patio, workplace or driveway – whilst guttering and fall pipes are supplied with every system to carry rainwater to the ground, or into a water-butt.
Although these kits are supplied to the trade/DIY market, nothing about them is mass-market in terms of style or specification. Every system is individually made to your exact requirements in terms of length, width, height, and roof pitch, so they’re guaranteed to fit your space perfectly.
We supply CAD drawings with every structure, specifically tailored to your project. So if the land slopes for example, we’ll supply the uprights to the correct length to accommodate this. Similarly, if you want to surface mount the uprights, rather than concrete them into the ground, we’ll supply the necessary fixings for you to do so.
Wind and snow-load calculations are provided, ensuring every structure is suitable for its location, and we’ll advise you up front if we encounter a problem before you complete your order.
The order process is simple.
Decide on the size of structure that you want to order and call us. We’ll go through all the technical stuff leaving nothing to chance. If you have any on-site issues, like slopes or pipes on the wall, send us a couple of photo’s and we’ll advise you…We can work around most issues with minimum fuss.
This is a bespoke product so a deposit of 15% is payable on order. Balance to follow 2 weeks prior to delivery. If you require immediate delivery (usually within 2 weeks), balance of payment is due on order.
Delivery & Lead Time
We have our own delivery vehicles on the road around the country every week, so delivery is free to most parts of the UK. There may be a surcharge in some remote locations, but we’ll give you a no-obligation written quotation of excess delivery charges, if applicable, when you enquire.
Lead time is generally 2 weeks from order (slightly longer if you specify a colour other than white), and we’ll arrange a specific delivery date ahead of time that is suitable for you.
Our delivery drivers will unload and stack the components in a safe place of your choosing, within a reasonable distance of where our vehicle can safely park. If you have any access issues, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate your requirements.
