As Americans, we love carports simply because they add value to our house. Having stated that, the main reason to build these carports is to ensure the protection of our cars. A vehicle left in the streets is susceptible to various threats. There is the constant fear of it getting stolen. Bad weather in various parts our country may also have a say in proposing a potential risk against our car’s safety. Carports protect our priced possession from all these anomalies.
The best option to ensure the safety of any car is a garage. But these garages are far too expensive and take too much space as compared to carports. Carports consist of a roof and few cleverly place beams which make our car much more accessible. Take the scenario for instance when it’s raining cats and dogs – You will first have to go to your garage and open it up. The time taken to do this will be enough to make you wet from head to toe. On the other hand, if you have a carport, you will just have to run to your car and drive away.
It is always a good idea to enclose your carport from three sides. This will give much desired privacy to your family. A front open carport is much safer for your car. It also allows you to keep other car utilities within the vicinity.
We need carports in our house to be care free from the dangers of the streets. More than that, our car needs them to survive through the worst kind of weather. Most of the time we choose to overlook the importance of this blessing in disguise and take it for granted. The next time you drive into a street only to find that all parking spaces have been occupied, count your blessings that you have a carport at your house. If you don’t have a carport, well, then you have deprived yourself of one of the most basic necessities of life.
