A carport is a phenomenal alternative to a garage. Unlike garages, carports don’t have four walls. But this isn’t a disadvantage because it allows them to be more versatile and functional. While most people utilize their carports to park their primary automobiles and other vehicles, they can also be used as a functional recreation space. For example, if you love to entertain people outside, a carport is the perfect place to arrange tables and chairs to create a separate dining area, so people can enjoy a meal out of direct sunlight.
In addition to serving as a functional space, you can also use a carport to store extra belongings. Whether you want to store tools, outdoor equipment, or something else, you could attach a metal shed to your carport. Carports with attached metal sheds are known as utility carports. These are great because they store your belongings in a safe and secure way, along with serving as an outdoor studio.
At Carport Factory Direct, we are committed to providing you with state-of-the-art techniques, equipment, and service. Our employees are trained with diligent craftsmanship in mind, so we can create a completely personalized and customized carport for you. As for our frame materials, you have the option of choosing from a 12 gauge steel or a 14 gauge steel. From there, we cut and place the material in a way that is relevant to your specific design desires. The frame material isn’t the only thing you get to choose, you will also have the option of choosing a general roof style, trim, and color. We offer regular, boxed eave, or vertical roof styles, which each provide a different stylistic element to your carport. Whether you choose a naturalistic green, sultry red, ocean blue, or monochromatic color, our representatives are trained to help you select the perfect stylistic elements to make your carport aesthetically pleasing.
With a customized carport, you won’t have to worry about leaving your vehicles and belongings exposed on your driveway. Instead, our steel carports are a great way to protect your vehicles from external elements and provide you with an additional functional space. So say goodbye to your days of worrying about leaving your vehicle parked on the curb or having the hassle of keeping track of garage keys, and contact a representative about our customized steel carports today!
