'A Metal Carport Perfect for Two Cars'

Hello everyone! This week's blog is all about carports. Getting a carport is an excellent idea for anyone who wants to protect their vehicles and equipment from the rain, snow, hail, strong winds and even the sunlight. If you're thinking about ordering a carport, you may be wondering what kind to get. At Alan's, we have lots of carport designs to choose from. Let's take a look at some of the things you should consider while perusing my selection of carports for sale.

What Sort of Vehicles Do You Have?

There are different carport designs made to shelter different types of vehicles. Perhaps your family needs shelter for just one compact car or small truck. A regular style carport that measures 12x21 would be an appropriate choice. Alternatively, a family who owns a large truck as well as a minivan would need a larger carport that can accommodate bigger vehicles. If you own several heavy duty trucks or maybe some large pieces of farm equipment, you may want to look at the triple wide carport designs. On my website, I provide a list of the dimensions and prices of all of my carports for sale.

What about the Future?

I recommend that you keep the future in mind as you're considering all of the options. Do you plan to purchase another vehicle or two? Do you want to use your carport for other items in addition to a car or truck? The answers to these questions can help you to choose a carport that will fulfill your vehicle storage needs now as well as your storage needs in the future.

If you do end up sheltering several vehicles, you may find that the concrete pad beneath the carport is becoming stained with oil that's leaking from a vehicle. This is a common occurrence. Fortunately, there are methods for removing oil from concrete. By removing these stains, you are helping to keep your carport area looking its best.

What's the Weather Like Out There?

As you are considering the various carports, think about the weather you deal with each year. Perhaps you have a lot of snowfall. If you do, a carport with a vertical style roof would be a good choice. The vertical design of the roof's sheeting allows snow to slide off instead of piling up. Maybe you live in an area that experiences several hailstorms a year. A carport with any type of roof including the vertical, boxed eave or regular style can protect vehicles in the midst of a powerful hail storm. If the place where you live has a lot of rainfall, a carport can prove to be an invaluable purchase. You can load and unload items from your car's trunk under the protection of dependable shelter.

I hope I've shown you the valuable benefits that a carport can offer. Thanks for reading! -Alan
