4. Carport construction material. Do you want the carport to compliment your house (which might cost extra money in lumber and brick)? Many people prefer wooden carports but most pre-fab kits are only available in steel. Do you need the strength of a steel carport or will aluminum suffice? 5. Where will your carport be situated on your property? Try to think of the pros and cons of different potential locations before making a final decision. If the car port is beside your house you can share a mutual wall and thereby save some money. Will the carport add to the beauty of your home or detract from the appearance of your home? Perhaps it would be best for your carport to be a stand alone structure near your house or behind the house.
The two commonly used carport types are wooden carports and metal carports. There may be others, but the two rank high as the carport types that are very familiar. If your main concern for getting one is how this will visually appeal together with your home, then you need to confirm this from where you intend to buy or the manufacturers web-site.. A home built mostly with wood may do better aesthetically with a wooden carport rather than metal carports. Although alumawood; a metal that looks like wood can be used in place of wood to make wood looking metal carports, the major disadvantage with this type of metal is that it is heavy which can increase your cost of transportation.
Commercial carports are structures designed to allow for customer or employee cars to be parked under cover. Commercial carports can stand alone or can be used in conjunction with a covered walkway to allow for the friendliest user experience since an individual can then park his or her car under cover and walk the entire way to the building without exposure to adverse weather. Carports for your commercial building can be made of many different materials and can use many different designs and styles, ensuring that everyone can find the perfect look and most functional product within their budget.
2. What is the purpose or the car port? What needs will be served by the carport? Carports generally provide shelter for a car. However, other people use carports as a porch cover or a shaded playing area for their children. Is the carport intended to protect the car from the sun or is it to protect from the snow? Are walls necessary to achieve your intended purposes ie. prevent wind and/or snow drifts? Are you expecting to store things safely in the carport. Will you need an area for cupboards? Make a list of goals you want to meet with your carport. 3. What building permit requirements and possible building restrictions exist in your community. Do you have a copy of the local building codes? Are you even allowed to build a carport on your property? For aesthetic and preservation purposes many heritage communities severely restrict additions to existing structures. There are costs and waiting periods associated with obtaining building permits so make sure you know what these are before you start to build.
