Installation is a two-stage process, summarised as:
STAGE 1 – INSTALLATION OF APPROPRIATE FOUNDATIONS
Ensuring that your carport is securely installed is of paramount importance. Our structural engineer will calculate the required specification for foundations.
Our partners offer two foundation options.
A – CONCRETE PADS
Concrete pad footings are a cost effective way of ensuring that your carport has a solid foundation on which to sit. Our installation partners will manage all aspects of the foundation process for you, and ensure that the area is appropriately covered whilst the concrete cures.
Pads can be laid underneath block paving or a pea shingle / gravel if preferred.
B – GROUND SCREWS (NEW FOR WINTER 18/19)
We have been asked a number of times about options for foundations in areas that are subject to Root Protection or Tree Preservation Orders (RPO’s and TPO’s) and we are pleased to advise that we now have a solution for this. Working with a specialist in the field of Ground Screws we have an alternative approach to concrete pads.
Close to the point of installation your carport / fence system will arrive via our specialist logistic partners who are expert in the delivery of large items.
Securely packaged, it will be carefully offloaded ready for unpacking by our installation partners.
STAGE 2 – CARPORT (OR FENCE) ASSEMBLY
Once the foundations are down our installation partner will assemble your carport and / or fencing system. Assembly can take as little as one day, though larger projects will take longer (up to 3 or 4 depending on complexity).
