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.
Exposing vehicles to the elements can be a damaging experience for the vehicles. Whether you are protecting your own car and the cars of employees or whether you are providing parking for customers the steel carport will help to make parking safer. This in turn will add value to the property and can help you to earn a reputation as someone who cares about customers or employees.
One value of a carport is it can save cost especially for someone who is on a tight budget. And an obvious advantage which it has over a garage is that it does not make you suffer the restrictions of a garage since it comes in semi enclosed types that gives you the opportunity to drive your vehicle in and out as you please.
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.
The name flat roof carport is slightly misleading. Even a aluminum carports with a flat roofs need to have some sort of gradual slope or grade to the roof. The grade of a flat roof carport is almost imperceptible. However the grade allows rain and snow to find an easy path to drain off. It is also wise to attach rain gutters to the lowest side of the roof to further direct run off. The addition of a down spout and a rain barrel will complete the water runoff re-direction.
