As well as protecting your vehicles from the elements, having a carport added to your home may also increase the market value of the home. A carport is a potential selling point as house hunters like to park their vehicles under shelter.
Carports are not only designed for cars. Homeowners can also use a carport to accommodate boats, trailers, jet skis, caravans, motorcycles, push bikes and other equipment or machinery, depending on the space.
If you need extra space, you may also be able to use a carport as an outdoor entertaining area.
