Advantages of Building Carports


There are several benefits to building carports on your property:


  • Vehicle protection: Carports provide shelter and protection for your vehicles, shielding them from harsh weather conditions such as rain, snow, hail, and excessive sunlight. This helps prevent damage to your vehicle's exterior and interior, including paint fading, rust, and upholstery deterioration.


  • Extended vehicle lifespan: By sheltering your vehicles under a carport, you can significantly extend their lifespan. Protection from the elements helps preserve your vehicle’s condition, reducing the risk of costly repairs and increasing its resale value.


  • Versatile use: Carports offer versatility in their use beyond vehicle storage. They can be utilized as covered outdoor living spaces, providing shade and protection for outdoor gatherings, barbecues, and relaxation. Carports can also serve as covered storage areas for recreational equipment, gardening tools, and other items.


  • Cost-effective alternative: Building a carport is often more cost-effective than constructing a traditional garage. Carports require less material and labour, resulting in lower construction costs. Additionally, carports typically have fewer maintenance and upkeep expenses compared to garages.


  • Quick installation: Carports can be erected relatively quickly compared to other structures, such as garages or extensions. With efficient planning and professional installation, you can enjoy the benefits of a carport in a shorter timeframe.


  • Increased property value: Adding a carport to your property can enhance its value and appeal to potential buyers or tenants. Carports provide practicality and convenience, making your property more attractive in the real estate market.


  • Flexibility and portability: Carports are often designed with a modular and flexible structure, allowing for easy customization and adjustments to meet your changing needs. Additionally, certain carport designs offer portability, enabling you to relocate the structure if required.


Overall, building a carport offers a cost-effective and versatile solution to protect your vehicles, increase property value, and provide additional functional space on your property.

Get Answers to Your Questions about Custom Garages Building in Winnipeg


Here are some answers to the most common questions about the overall requirements of building general and custom garages in Winnipeg.

How do I start?

After contact, our team will attend and assess the site limitations and requirements, design your structure, draw up plans and provide a no-cost estimate to suit the needs of your custom garage in Winnipeg.

How much does a garage cost?

Everything related to cost depends on what is going on in your yard, such as elevations, site restrictions, drainage issues, access issues, utilities, etc. In addition, design features for custom garages vary depending on site limitations. Connect with your contractor for estimates.

What size of a garage can I build?


In Winnipeg, the size of the garage cannot exceed 12.5% of the total lot area to a maximum of 880 sq. ft. You also need to stay 2’ away from all property lines and 3’ eave to eave from the house. You should build whatever size fits your needs or site, whether it's 21'2" x 23'6" or some odd shape. We will help you with this decision.

More information on city regulations regarding detached garages.

What size should I build?


Here are 3 common sizes of garages:

How long does it take to build a basic garage finished in stucco?

Approximately 6 weeks from start to finish, including the time required for the concrete and various coats of stucco to dry. The actual building of the garage (without the finish or concrete) is generally completed in 1 day.


Can I customize my garage?



Who takes out the permit?


The contractor should always take out the permit under their corporate name. Under Workplace Safety and Health Act Legislation, there are huge liabilities and fines for improper workmanship, garage location, and more. These liabilities are attached to the person or entity that takes out the permit.


What if I require a variance?


We'll handle the variance process for you, including appeals if needed, at no additional cost other than direct city charges. Our successful track record with the city means denials are rare.


How early/late in the year can I build a garage?


Generally, the frost is out of the ground by mid-May, and concrete should not be poured before this. The season is over by October, depending on prevailing weather conditions. We have built garages throughout the winter. However, we would not recommend doing so due to the high costs of heating and hoarding.


What type of foundation is required?


The city recommends concrete requirements depending on the structure size and type. (Refer to pg. 8 & 9).


Can I complete my own electrical?


Of course.
