Paving the Carport - Checklist

Paving the Carport - Checklist


Not all materials are suitable for paving a carport. The substructure must be stable, as the ground is exposed to strong forces.

Construction of the Carport Floor

A rolling car exerts strong forces on the ground. This deviates to the sides, which leads to ruts.

  • The substructure consists of a layer of gravel or gravel at least 30 centimeters thick for frost protection.
  • The base layer is 15 to 25 centimeters high consists of chippings.
  • The thickness of the base layer must be three times as thick as the largest grain.
  • Compound stones with a thickness of eight centimeters are suitable for pas- senger parking spaces or twelve centimeters for truck parking spaces.
  • For curbs and H-beams that carry the carport, concrete is required.

Material requirements for paving

The amount of required materials can be determined using this method:

  • Measure the length of the side.
  • Determine the number of required corner pieces.
  • Detecting concrete requirements
  • Measuring surface
  • Calculating the amount of gravel or gravel for the antifreeze layer
  • Determining the amount of splits
  • Determining the laying pattern
  • Determining the quantity of paving stones that depend on the size of the paving stones
  • to procure 0.1 cubic meter per square meter of sand or fine gravel for grouting.

To build the pitch

To pave the pitch requires a shaker, and for large areas also an excavator. The carriers that carry the carport posts belong to the substructure. A subsequent Einbetonieren is tedious. How to plan the work:

  • Concrete curbs and H-beams.
  • Compact floor.
  • Tension the cord to mark the height of the frost layer.
  • Apply and condense the frost layer.
  • Cord Clamp at the level of the top of the base course, taking into account gradients. It must have a gradient of at least 2.5 centimeters per meter to the road.
  • Apply base course and compact several times.
  • Strip grit smooth with a batten.
  • Lay stones according to laying pattern.
  • By shaking into the grit layer
  • Scattering sand or fine chippings and turning them in.

Building a carport: what does it cost?

Costs and time required

The amount of time depends on the size of the paving area and the existing tool. A construction company needs one day for 100 square meters with two man and heavy equipment if no excavation is needed. Companies require paving with a substructure between 16 and 25 euros per square meter. The cost of the wage is low in relation to the material costs. If you want to build yourself, you only need the material, but you do not save much.

  • Angle stones cost about 45 Euro per meter.
  • If soil has to be removed, an excavator is necessary. It costs at least 100 euros per day.
  • For gravel and grit, around four euros per square meter can be expected.
  • Composite paving stones cost between ten and fifteen euros per square meter.
  • A jogger costs at least € 50 per day.

The professional works cost-effectively

The paving of a carport or driveway is tedious and saves only a small amount. It makes sense to hire a specialist.
