Carports. Friday , October 13th , 2017 - 20:59:38 PM
Where will your carport be situated on your property? Try to think of the pros and cons of different potential locations before making a final decision. If the car port is beside your house you can share a mutual wall and thereby save some money. Will the carport add to the beauty of your home or detract from the appearance of your home? Perhaps it would be best for your carport to be a stand alone structure near your house or behind the house.
Carport construction material. Do you want the carport to compliment your house (which might cost extra money in lumber and brick)? Many people prefer wooden carports but most pre-fab kits are only available in steel. Do you need the strength of a steel carport or will aluminum suffice?
Contemporary carports also include other features such as solar panels, automatic alarm systems and locks for maximum security. Some also includes surveillance cameras. A carport could serve the functions of a regular garage fixture at a lower cost.
