Carports - Structure Details Edit
Carports; unlike a garage are non-enclosed or semi-enclosed strictures. They have as many uses as that of a garage and that is especially true when the carport is partly enclosed or coupled with a storage shed. People purchase a carport to protect their cars, RV’s, golf carts, and other vehicles in order to keep them top form and shape by protecting them from scorching sun, hailstorms, and snow. Custom-built carports can do more than just protecting the vehicles. For example, a carport can be used for doing yoga in the semi-open area, for barbecues and grill events, picnics, and even used as an outdoor studio to muster up your creativity.
Small sheds attached to a carport structure help a long way in storing regular use mowers, scissors, strollers, and other equipment in a convenient and safe place. Carports don’t have to be one-use only, and they can often substitute for more expensive structures that may not fit all of your needs.
Most of the carport manufacturers in America offer 12-gauge and 14-gauge steel made carports, that can be cut to any length desired. Most of them build a custom carport to any exact size specification; wind certification, and also snow load certification as the building permits for Carports and other metal structures differ in different states of the USA. Most manufacturers are also offering custom options for the color of the roof, trim, gables, and side panels.
Carport Roof Styles Edit
A carport usually has one of the three roof styles - Regular which is known as Good. Boxed-eave which is considered better and sturdier than a regular roof style car port, and finally the Vertical roof style which is considered as the best.
