Verandahs and Carports

Heritage-Dutch-Gable-02.jpg

Modern’s range of verandahs and carports allow you to open your home to the outside and create a covered area that can be enjoyed year-round. The canopy of a Modern verandah or carport protects you and your family from the elements, expanding the possibilities for entertaining, storage or simply enjoying time in the garden.

Modern products have long been renowned for their superior quality and design, and our new range of verandahs and carports is no exception. Available in a wide range of high gloss colours to complement the appearance of your home, Modern verandahs and carports feature a steel roofing sheet with a clean, smooth underside that has a 'ceiling-like' finish. This sheet can span several metres, allowing the support beams to be placed well apart for a clean, uncluttered finish.

The structure is formed with strong and elegant, chamfered and fluted beams and columns. Matching gutters tie the system together, while hidden fixing points and concealed brackets complete the smooth and refined appearance.

A Modern verandah or carport will be a lasting investment. The entire range is protected by a 15 year structural guarantee*, and has been engineered and tested to comply with all relevant Australian Standards. The major components are made from strong high tensile steel, while the fixings and brackets are galvanised for a long usable life.

Product Range

Design freedom is central to Modern's verandah and carport range. Our products are extremely flexible and can be added to just about any property, from traditional to contemporary. Each product is designed as a complete system, and can be tailored to suit your home, lifestyle and budget.

Flat Roof

Create a functional outdoor living area to enhance your home and lifestyle with the smooth, uncluttered lines of the classic flat roof. The flat roof system can be configured to cover any space around the home as a single unit or incorporated with a gable roof, curved roof or pergola system.

Available as either a freestanding structure or an attachment to the home, the flat roof can be used as a verandah, patio or carport. The beams can span up to 8.4 metres depending on the configuration, and are available in 120mm and 150mm sizes.




Gable

With strong presence and style, the pitched roof of a Modern gable verandah, patio or carport offers an open feel that will enrich your home and outdoor entertainment area.

The gable is available as a freestanding unit or as an attachment to the home, in multispan or clearspan design. A multispan gable features purlins that are placed over the rafters in the roof and can span up to 6.6 metres wide. The clearspan gable does not need the extra purlins to support it and can span an impressive 7.5 metres wide.




Sunroof

Control the weather with the innovative sunroof verandah, patio or carport. By adjusting the rotating louvres with the hand held remote, you can let in the breeze and sunlight when the weather is fine and provide protection when the clouds set in.

The sunroof system has an inbuilt rain sensor that will automatically close the blades when it starts to rain. When the louvres are completely shut they form an interlocking profile that protects from the weather and help block out surrounding noise.

The sunroof can cover openings of up to 3.9 metres thanks to its strong, well-engineered blades.


Curved Roof

Offering a contemporary look, the curved roof verandah, patio or carport will add value and bring style and sophistication to your home. The smooth, clean lines of the curved roof form a graceful canopy over any outdoor area.

The curved roof can span up to 6.6 metres wide in both multispan and clearspan designs. It is available as a unit attached to the home. A multispan curved roof features purlins that are placed over the rafters in the roof, while the clearspan curved roof does not need the extra purlins to support it.

When combined with flat roof or pergola sections it becomes part of a system, with the elegant curved roof forming the central feature of the design.
