Automobiles and RV's are serious investments that need to be
protected. An alternative to the protection of a traditional garage
is a unique and economical carport. Carports protect your car from
sun damage, hail damage, and heat deterioration. They keep your
automobile cool in the summer and clean during seasons when leaves,
dirt, snow and rain can alter the finish.
Carports can be built within 1 to 2 days, making it an easy means
for protection against costly damages made to your vehicles, boats
and other RV's. They are much less expensive to build then a garage
and do not require consent from the building department. Also,
carports are available in any configuration to fit the needs of any
Carports can be attached to your house, your garage, or be free
standing. They are typically made from metal or wood. However, you
also have the option of constructing a carport that uses vinyl to
protect against sun, snow, hail, and rain.
Metal carports are extremely durable and economical. They are
available in many colors and sizes. They can be constructed of
steel, standard aluminum, and alumawood aluminum (wood texture). The
material used will depend on the level of protection you are looking
for. Wood is generally more expensive than metal, but it also brings
the warm inviting appeal that many homeowners enjoy.
