Why Choose an Olson Timber Carport?

All of our timber carports are constructed from the same sustainably sourced, pressure treated timber that we use in our range of timber buildings.

Visually appealing a carport offers a cost-effective solution to keeping your vehicles protected from the elements all year after year.

Built to last, we guarantee all our timber buildings for 5 years.

Simply Designed For You

One size does not fit all; we work with you to design your ideal carport that incorporates all the features you require.

Whether you need a single or multi-bay structure, we build to order so that we can create your bespoke design, whilst our large stock of pre-cut timbers and materials mean that our construction lead time is quick.

We have lots of useful planning advice for building a carport and can help to guide you through a planning application.
