The additional of a wooden carport to your existing home or other structure can make a lot of sense. Not only does it provide extra protection from the elements if done correctly it can give your house an upgraded look. A properly proportioned carport with the additional of some fancy wooden finials or trim work can really add value to your house.
There are many good reasons to consider building a carport. The most obvious reason is for vehicle shelter but there are other hidden benefits as well.
The value added to the property exists because covered spaces are always an attractive add-on that potential buyers of commercial property may be looking for. The value added in terms of employee or customer good will is also invaluable. An employee who has a carport to park his car under and to walk under to avoid the rain for example may have a boost in morale if he/she feels that his employer is looking out for his best interests by providing the carport.
Building a carport is an excellent car shelter compromise. The carport will protect your car or vehicle from the elements. Depending on the location of the structure the carport may also protect you from the elements while getting to and from your car. A carport can also provide additional shelter for other items such as a wood pile. However a carport is much easier to build and much cheaper to build than a full garage.
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.
