If you’re concerned that sunlight, rain, and snow might damage your vehicle, but you don’t have space to store it inside a garage, you have a number of options. Building a full garage is one possibility, but setting up a carport can be a better alternative for several reasons.
A Carport Is a Simple but Effective Structure
A carport can either be attached to an existing wall or built as a free-standing structure. Wood or steel posts support the roof, and the carport is open on the sides, other than where it is attached to a wall. This structure is much simpler than a full garage, but it can provide essential protection for a vehicle.
A Carport Can Be Constructed Virtually Anywhere
If you decide to get a carport, you will have plenty of options in terms of where to put it. You can attach it to the side of your house if there is space, or you can put it up in another part of your yard.
If your needs change or you realize that the location you chose isn’t working out for some reason, you can put the carport in an area that’s more suitable. If you move in the future, you can disassemble the carport and take it with you to your next home.
Buying a Carport Is Much More Affordable Than Building a Garage
Constructing a garage, even a small one, can be a costly project. You will have to get help from a professional builder and make sure that the garage meets local codes. You will have to pay to obtain the necessary permits and will most likely have to pay higher property taxes since a new garage will increase your home’s value.
A carport costs much less than a new garage. Also, since it’s not a permanent structure, you shouldn’t need a permit to put one on your property, and it most likely won’t affect your tax bills.
