Many years ago. garages were made out of timber. This material had a major problem of getting damaged from termites and excess water accumulation. These days the use of metals is more popular in the construction of carports and garages. The basic requirements of a carport are that it should be able to protect the vehicle from water damage. mould and mildew. harmful sun rays. storms and strong winds.
Most standard carports take all of these concerns into consideration. Composed of a steel frame and a UV-resistant and waterproof polyethylene cover. a standard carport keeps the elements away from your vehicle and holds up to the weather. While the polyethylene guards against UV rays and water. the galvanized or powder-coated heavy-duty structural steel frame stays strong against heavy snow loads and winds up to 97 miles per hour. If the carport will be kept outdoors for more than several months. go with a galvanized steel or square tube frame.
