Pergolas, Carports & Patios

Outdoor structures like carports and pergolas look the most attractive when they complement the design of your home. Timber that is rated for outdoors is ideal for these projects as it offers great flexibility in colour and style. You’ll want to make the most of our range of structural timber to ensure your pergola, patio or carport stands up to the often harsh Australian conditions such as long days in the sun, strong winds, rain, and storms. 

And for the DIYer, timber pergolas, pergola carports and timber patios are ideal projects especially if you’re a novice – and the Narangba Timbers team is on hand to help you to choose the best materials for your project. 

Timber pergolas were originally built to give structure to climbing plants or vines. But the present-day pergola is often a covered shelter for a verandah, patio or entertaining area. Alternatively, pergola carports are growing in popularity to reduce the damaging rays of the Australian sun on cars. Your pergola and timber patio can create a cosy and sheltered area for you to entertain, relax and enjoy your garden. 

Various styles and shapes are possible – either as extensions to your house or as free-standing structures in the middle of your garden. Rectangular timber pergolas attached to the main building is the most common, but free-standing hexagonal or even circular gazebos are also popular. 

Pergola carports are often added to homes instead of, or in addition to, a garage. They are particularly useful when a household has a one-car garage, but two cars needing shelter. Carports are increasingly being built for boats and motorhomes when they are not being used. 

  

The added benefit of building a carport in your home is that it can also serve as a sheltered entertainment area. 

  

To help you select the right timber for your pergola, gazebo or carport, we’ve compiled a handy how-to guide to a DIY timber pergola.
