Let’s be honest, if there’s one thing other than our homes that we tend to be more proud of, it’s our method of transportation. If you’re looking for a way to further take care of your vehicle, look no further than a carport from Cliffside. A simple solution that acts an effective alternative to a garage, carports are a simple yet welcome addition when your home isn’t blessed with much surrounding space.
Here are 10 ways homeowners can benefit from having a carport installed, you may not know you needed one in the first place!
1. Safe from the harshest of elements
Installing a simple uPVC carport will keep your car under efficient and effective protective cover, protecting it from any possible weather damage such as paint fading, weathering or hailstone damage.
2. Additional Space
Great for use in the warm weather, a carport can be a great place to relax when you require an extra outside space for BBQs and family gatherings. Why not double up your carport as an outdoor porch?
3. Protection against theft and vandalism
Housing your car underneath a carport helps to protect it from possible vandalism or other random attacks. The beauty of using a carport for vehicle protection as opposed to a typical garage is that your car is visible, meaning that you can always keep a close eye on any potential wrongdoing.
4. Suitable for any type of vehicle
Despite the namesake, carports can be used to house any vehicle you own and not just simply cars. Many homeowners have carports installed on their properties to house boats, RVs, motorcycles and trailers. All forms of transportation can be adequately shielded with a carport.
5. Ease of use
The majority of carports act as a canopy-like structure. This means that they do not require doors and as such, are convenient when you come home from shopping and need to carry your groceries. No longer will you need to struggle opening doors whilst being encumbered with items or find yourself in a rush in the morning.
6. Energy efficient storage option
A carport eliminates the need for electric door openers, bright lighting and any other energy draining features. This means that your home’s energy output will be reduced, even having a positive impact on your financial bills.
7. A shaded environment
If ever you’d like to enjoy the natural beauty of the outside but don’t want to deal with excessive summer heat, your carport will provide more than enough shade.
8. No more storage units
Providing mass amounts of outside space, a carport can act as an alternative to a storage unit you may otherwise feel the need to rent. Each carport is designed specifically to your required shape or size, your home will never suffer from lack of storage space for any tools, boxes or other items.
9. Stylish and simple design
Carports by their very design, are sleek, simple and minimalist. Made from high quality uPVC and polycarbonate roofing, they can be tailored to more easily tie-in with your house’s exterior aesthetic, available in a range of RAL colours.
10. Perfect for the single homeowner
Believe it or not, a carport can be helpful for people who live alone. As their structure usually sits close to your home’s side, you don’t ever have to worry about pulling up too close if you have it installed to the right of your home. There is never a need to open your passenger door!
