You may have noticed more carports being built in your area. Carports offer a versatile alternative to garages. Carports will allow you to have an area next to your home that will protect your car from the elements (wind, rain, snow, and even intense heat from the sun). They may suit your purpose in your driveway to keep your car, motor bike, motorhome, caravan, or any other vehicles close by and not on the street. You can get carports to fit 1, 2 or 3 cars.
What are Carports?
Carports are shelters with a roof supported by posts or columns that can be used for your car, motorbike, or vehicle. Carports are typically attached to your home but can be built beside your home making it easy for you to enter your car close by and be protected from the weather.
Carports are permanent structures and are sturdily made. Carports can be set up in your home and they can also be used by business settings, schools, hospitals, and other uses. Carports have become more popular among smaller homeowners where there is less room for a garage, and you can feel more at peace knowing that your vehicle is safe off the road, and you don’t have to worry about possible weather damage. Remember a carport can house any size vehicle and you can have it customised to fit your vehicle type.
There are many alternative uses, with carports providing shade and weather protection whether that’s at home or in your business.
