You can only stuff so many things in your garage. With all the toys, tools, gardening hoses, machines, and accessories stuffed in every corner, you probably barely have enough space for what’s supposed to go in there — your cars.
Luckily, there is a solution to your space issues. You can always invest in a carport to store at least one of your cars outside of your designated garage.
Carports are typically metal structures that are big enough to house a few cars, depending on how big it is. There are two car garage kits and carports that can be perfect for you if your regular garage is simply too small.
Here are some of the other benefits of carports.
- Protection From the Elements. You can buy carports that have either open or closed sidings. It may be best to invest in closed sidings so that your car can be completely protected from adverse weather conditions. The material is also impervious to UV rays from the sun that can damage paint and the interior of the car. You won’t have to worry about your car being covered in snow or ice in the winter either.
- All Your Accessories. Even if you decide to kick everything out of your attached garage and put your cars in, a carport can be perfect for all your accessories. You can fit a lawnmower inside, as well as a snowblower, tools, gadgets, toys, bikes, and even ATV’s or motorcycles.
- Energy Savings. Many garages have to be fitted with lighting, and electric door openers that consume a lot of energy. Carport kits can be erected without any of these intricate details, and a small lamp or light is sufficient for lighting up the entire space.
