Your garage is full of stuff: a workbench, bicycles, an artificial Christmas tree, the list goes on and on. There's really no room for your cars, trucks or motorcycles. Or perhaps you've just bought a new car, and one of your cars has to sit outside. But you paid good money for those vehicle- you don't want to let the elements destroy the paint job.
A car port offers a possible solution. With either tiled or felted roofs, car ports protect vehicles from storms and sunlight. At the same time, because they're just a frame and a covering, they have an open feel. It's also more economical to build a carport than it is to build an addition on a garage. So whether you have a car, van, trailer or boat to protect, a carport may offer the perfect solution.
