Can your carport have a garage door? There is a distinctive difference between a carport and a garage, however, the terms are often used interchangeably. A carport is best described as a stand-alone structure and is often seen without a door. A garage forms part of the house and is usually under the main structure. So why is it that some carports have garage doors, and some do not?

The main reason that many carports don’t have doors is because they are required to be an open, somewhat see-through structure. The idea being that the carport doesn’t visually impair the view of the house. This is a particular requirement in many Brisbane inner-city suburbs where there are character precincts. As for a door on the front, well these are often installed after the approval process is completed, however there are other tasteful options around garage doors that act more as a screen, than a complete block out. With the right process for application, then this could be a suitable compromise for your building approval.
