What Is A Carport?

A carport is something that has become less of a feature on a driveway every year. It is still fairly common on older terrace houses in the UK but you do not really see it much in Dublin anymore.

The purpose of a carport is to provide you a place to park your car whilst still being on the driveway. It will protect the car from the elements and give you a place to step out onto without getting wet. Kind of a like a garage but with no walls or garage door on it!

Now you may wonder, why not just have a garage instead? Well, building a garage is a lot more complicated and will cost you significantly more as well.

Here are some of the key differences between a garage and a carport

Building a new garage, especially if you did not have one previously, will require planning permission. It will require a bricklayer for the walls and a roofer to do the roof. Now you can just get a builder, who can handle that all for you but you will be paying extra for this.

A new garages requires a new base foundation, a concrete or similar styled floor, concrete footings for walling, windows, generally a side door and a main front garage door.

As you can see, this will start to pile up in costs after a while and there is maintenance required that goes along with it. Oiling the garage door, spring cleaning, guttering systems, regular roof maintenance and more.

So lets now look at a carport and see the difference.

No planning permission required, no walling, no new surface, no doors, no windows and very little maintenance. The only maintenance you will require is going to be on the roof.

A car port can be built with no walls by simply using support beams (metal preferably) which are bedded into the ground and will support the roof the new car port.

If it is backing into a wall, you do not need any extra support, otherwise, we recommend tying it into the side of the house to give it some extra support.

Make sure to pick the right roof for the carport, a nice perplex styled roof will let a lot of light in vs a traditional felt roof. Round off the appearance of your carport with a nice gutter, soffit and fascia style to complete the look

A carport will cost around 1/5th of what a new garage will cost on average. If you already have a carport, the only type of maintenance you will require is making the sure the guttering system works, drains away correctly and that the roof is watertight.

If you do need maintenance, we recommend a company such as TC Roofers - Roofing Contractors in Dublin to handle the free maintenance check for you.

Here at Select Paving, we can put in a wide range of carport styles on any driveway without affect the existing driveway. We can build a new driveway in Dublin around and for your carport as well.

Options exist for metal frameworks, brick built carports, stand alone or lean to carports and more.

New Gravel Driveway Avenue in Sutton, Dublin

Here are a few pictures of a new gravel driveway in Sutton, Dublin, completed by our team at Select Paving.

First we leveled off the area and prepared it for the gravel to come. Then we laid and compacted down our crushed limestone foundation. The existing kerbs were in a great shape so there was no need to replace those.

At the entrance of the property we laid multiple rows of snugly fitted granite cobble setts for a classy and timeless look. We topped the driveway with grey pebble gravel chippings and raked it down to create one even layer.

New Granite Gravel Driveway in Rathfarnham

Take a look at some during and after pictures of this granite cobble and granite gravel driveway in Rathfarnham, Co. Dublin. All materials and labour were supplied by our professionals at Select Paving.

As always we started by clearing out the existing driveway, which was laid with concrete. We also removed part of the lawn and greenery to significantly widen the usable area.

Our team laid a foundation of an 804 sub-base, as well as a hardcore membrane to stop any unwanted weed growth in its tracks. We created a pathway, edging border and a doorstep using varieties of Granite Cobbles and anchored them down with concrete. The multiple rows of cobbles at the entryway, along with a functioning drainage system, catch an eye of anyone walking by.

The rest of the area was then filled with Granite Gravel and compressed down.

Tarmac Driveway with Grey Cobblestone Border in Dublin

Here is quick recap of a tarmac driveway, completed by Select Paving in Dublin.

First, we dug out the existing surface and removed it from the site. Then we laid down a foundation for the future driveway - a Type 1 MOT sub-base. We created a raised block kerbed flower bed in one of the corners as well as a new doorstep to match.

To break the blackness of the tarmac, we used a contrasting Grey Cobblestone border around and tripled it at the entrance to create a nice entryway feature. The border, along with the two new ACO drains on each side, were set in concrete to anchor them down.

Then we completed the project by pouring down a layer of tarmac and power-rolling it down for a perfectly smooth finish.

Asphalt Driveway in Drogheda

We have recently laid a new Asphalt Driveway on a lovely property in Drogheda.

As usually, we started by prepping the area. That included digging and removing the original surface, leveling of any imperfections and laying a new solid base.

To define a clear border for the future driveway, we needed to lay new rounded kerbstones all around.

We finished the driveway with a layer of SMA Asphalt. This is one of the most popular materials used for residential driveways for its low maintenance and high durability. It gives any entryway a contemporary and modern look.

Our professional team is on hand to discuss your own dream asphalt project in Drogheda. You can call us directly or visit https://www.selectpaving.ie/services/tarmac/tarmac-driveways-dublin/ should you require more information.

Redesigned Patio in Glasnevin

We are especially proud of the following patio transformation, completed by experts from Select Paving in Glasnevin.

Firstly, we removed all old hedging and lawn to make space for the planned layout. Secondly, to increase the privacy of the owners, we built a new block wall. New pillars were installed at intervals to provide better stability for the wall.

We've laid a curved patio, using Grange Granite flagstones and Silver Granite border line with new foundations, membrane sheeting and sub-base underneath.

We filled the rest of the garden area with a Grade 1 Topsoil for the new lawn.

Block Paving Installation in Dun Laoghaire

New block paving installation in Dun Laoghaire completed by Select Paving. We transformed the front of a garden area turning it from a lawn area into an elevated paved area using block paving from Kilsaran. We elevated it using a medium cobble block and put a dropped down area to blend in with the existing driveway.

The drop down was built using 3 sizes from the tumbled range at Kilsaran and a granite cobble border. Aco drains were installed along the border to ensure no water pooling would occur.
