Why a carport beats a garage

January 29, 2016

In the past the garage was the go-to answer for car parking needs in residential properties. Nowadays people are looking at more modern and unique solutions.

Garages have their obvious advantages. They provide an undercover parking area for the car and direct access to your home. Garages are also great for storage.

So why look at anything else? A carport is a great solution for those needing shade and protection for their vehicle with minimal hassle.

A carport is less cumbersome and can be designed to complement the architecture of your home at a fraction of the cost of a garage. In most cases they join to your home so they provide shelter from the elements with a covered walkway to your front door.

Whilst you would need to consider a garden shed for storing your tools and mower, a carport provides all the necessary attributes that a garage does without the significant investment and bulky addition to the house front.

The modern home is complemented by the airiness of a carport and with house prices on the rise it is a frugal and often stylish addition to any home.
