Why You Should Install A Carport

Having a garage built is a costly and time-consuming endeavor and if your home does not have a garage there is no need to worry. There is a cheaper alternative and it comes with many positive aspects.

And even if you already have a garage, a carport can still come in handy.

1. It’s Versatile

A carport can be attached to your home or freestanding. Where a garage can only be built as an extension to your home. The thing with a carport is, it can be used for quite a few things, not just to store your car away from the elements. It can be converted into an entertainment area by putting in a pool table or table tennis. You can even host movie nights with a projector in the warmer months if you have the wall space available.

2. Guests Have a Place to Park

If you enjoy having company over then you probably know what it is like when they park on your grass. It can leave ugly marks that are unsightly. Now with a carport, your guests will now have a place to park their car that is out of the way as well as safe.

3. It Can Save a Party

You have been planning the party for a few weeks, the day arrives and everything is ready, only for it to begin raining. One option is to move the party indoors but usually, it only ends up with people sitting in different areas and feeling somewhat cooped up. If you have a carport you can just move everything beneath it until the rain hopefully clears or you give your guests a great story to tell their friends.

4. Protection

The most obvious reason to have the carport installed is to protect your car from the elements. This comes in handy when you do not have the money to have a garage built. It is easy to have installed and does not take long. And with the money, you will be saving you can easily spend it on something else that your home has needed for quite some time.

5. It Is a Bonus

If you have a carport installed make sure it fits with your home’s design so it looks like it is an extension of it. Potential buyers will see this as a bonus when they are looking for a home. It is an extra space that they can use and might just tick the box for some.

6. Safety

If you live alone a carport will come handy because you will not have to park on the street. You will have a space to pull your car into which is closer to your home.

7. Shade

If you are looking for something that can provide your kids with shade when they play outside then a carport might just be the answer.

8. Getting In and Out

Getting in and out of your car is a lot easier when you have parked in a carport. This especially comes in handy when you have a lot of grocery bags to haul out.

9. Boats

A carport does not only have to be used for a car. You can park anything beneath it to keep it safe from the elements. This includes boats, jet skis, and trailers.

10. A Workbench

If you need space for a workbench or work area then you can always have it in your carport instead of building a brand new extension to your home.

  • I just want to advise you of the terrific service one of your shed builders provided to us when last week he built the shed we ordered through your Penrith office. Dave and his young helper provided first class workmanship, he was very polite, and the clean up was a pleasure compared to most other tradesmen. We are soon going to order a further shed via Penrith and I have no hesitation in recommending your products. Thank you Dave, and thank you to Col Western Sheds.

  • Thank you to all at Col Western Sheds for your excellent service. From the time I made a weekend telephone enquiry, place a telephone order for a shed early the following week, received by email a diagram and quote, received advice of expected delivery time and took delivery at exactly the promised time from friendly helpful delivery men, I received outstanding service

  • Just letting you know that I received my shed even earlier than advised. It is so good to deal with a company that values it’s customers and delivers on ALL of it’s promises. I loved the ease of use of the web site along with the easy to find prices. I received great service at the Penrith Store when i went in to make my purchase. Fabulous communications re my purchase, and delivery well above my expectations. The product ain’t half bad either
