4 other uses of a metal carport at home

It’s more than a shelter for your vehicle.

A metal carport, especially those made from galvanised steel, is a cost-efficient shelter for your vehicle. To give you a rough estimate, a skillion roof single-car carport cost under $1200; a two-car skillion roof carport costs about $2000; and an extra-wide two-car gable roof carport costs around $3000 to $4000. If you are going to invest this much, your carport should offer so much more than parking. Here are its other uses:

Patio entertainment all year ‘round

Set up a metal carport over your outdoor living or dining area when you want to enjoy your outdoor space all year round. A metal carport provides shade and protection from the elements, so you can spend time here without sacrificing the outdoorsy feeling.

Preserve your furniture

Place your outdoor entertainment area under a metal carport to protect your precious from the elements all year round. Shield your furniture against the sun, rain, snow, and dead leaves to prolong your furnitures’ lives.

Extra garden storage

Build extra storage under the carport for stowing your garden tools and landscaping equipment. Consider this if you want a well-ventilated storage area, not a dark and incommodious one.

Pet shelter

Give your pet a well-shaded area where they can cool down after playing in the garden. You can build their mini house here, and your kids can play here with them safely.

Increase your property’s value with a metal carport

If you plan to sell your home in the future, building a carport today is one of the things you should consider.

Building a metal carport extends the existing building. When added to your property right, this will boost your home’s monetary value.
