For larger structures than the single family car. you will want to do a little measuring to make sure your carport will fit in the specific area you want. Additionally. for larger structures. you may be required to purchase permits. Therefore. the building department will want to see a planned and stamped engineered drawing to make sure the wind loads are acceptable. Wind loads may change if you live along a coast line or where the threats of hurricanes are persistent.
Protecting Cars With Carports - The Types of Carports. Carports are a common structure seen with or on various homes. By definition. a carport is a structure that protects a car from the elements. For a home. this can be a carport attached to the house or a portable carport that is part of the property but not attached to the home. For the latter. this often means structures built like portable garages. only the sides are open. instead of covered with additional canopies. More specifically. the types of carports available for a home include metal and polyethylene carports. These structures. which can be placed anywhere on a property that a car can access. can be designed for one or more vehicles to park under.
One can also go for garaports which are extensions of garage and are generally put on the front of the garage to provide some extra space for storage. Carports can also be used for entertainment purpose. They can be built in between the gardens. They will prove to be very useful during the rains when you want to enjoy the beauty of the weather but without getting wet. This is a very good way to do that.
One of the more popular portable carports is the polyethylene canopy design. These carports are designed with a galvanized steel frame and a polyethylene canopy on top. While the galvanized steel frame itself is designed to not corrode when exposed to the elements. the canopy is made from heavy duty polyethylene and given multiple treatments to withstand the elements. This includes being waterproof. UV resistant. mildew. and rot resistant. With air allowed to circulate under the shelter. your car isn`t prone to forming dry rot or mildew on the surface.
