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 kits are only available in steel. Do you need the strength of a steel carport or will aluminum suffice?
Aluminum flat roof carports can make an excellent addition to your home. The simplistic nature of the structure lends itself to being easy to build and inexpensive to build. This type of carport can fit into relatively small places and can take the least amount of vertical space of any type of carport.
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.
Another great advantage of flat roof carports over other types of carports is the potential to build a second story. This is a distinct advantage especially when building a carport attached to your home. The roof of the carport can provide the base of a second story deck or even to a full second story room. Its easy to build a second story room on top of a carport. It is made that much easier when you have an existing window that overlooks the carport. The existing window can be made into a door with very little effort. Admittedly most aluminum carports might not be strong enough to hold a second story.
A good metal carport can be made from materials like steel or aluminum. Another good material which can be used is alumawood but its major disadvantage is that it is very heavy and this can make you incur extra transportation cost in the event that you are getting one. Metal carports made with steel are often stronger than others made from other metals like aluminum because of the ruggedness and strength of steel.
