3) Steel carports are an easily-constructed option
A quick internet search for carports will mostly result in metal carport kits that can be ordered online and shipped within days. It is more difficult to find a wooden carport kit online. However it is possible to find plans for a wooden carport online. Many companies can email plans within hours of receiving payment. These plans are all certified by engineers. As long as you follow the plan carefully you will have a structurally sound carport.
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.
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.
Carports are making a big splash at home improvement shows all over the country. There are a lot of contractors discovering a big demand for the product. Wooden carports are the most popular as this type of carport has a classic feel and can add real value to your home.
