Single carports are one of the most economical type of car shelters available today. If you have enough space on your property, you can have a free-standing structure. On the other hand, a lean-to single carport would be ideal if you have space limitations.
A single carport is more affordable than a fixed garage. You can find a solution to suit your budget. You can build the structure to fit different types of driveways and have it as small or as large as you want.
Single steel carports are a durable choice compared to wooden ones. They do rust or get damaged easily, and can withstand rain, snow and other inclement weather conditions. You can have extra bracing put on your carport and have it certified to withstand your areas snow loads and wind loads. The sides of your carport can be partially enclosed for extra protection.
Though many types of roofing options are available, an A-frame style with a vertical roof is a practical choice as it can displace snow, water and debris more efficiently.
Single carports can also serve a variety of uses – as a children’s play area or as a place where you can relax with friends. Metal car ports are safe, but avoid using a grill under it. Check local building rules and codes when setting up your carport to ensure an environmentally friendly solution to your car cover needs.
