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.
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.
Another consideration you have to make before getting carport kits is ensuring you check with the local authorities if you require a permit before installing carport. This is because you might need one or there may be certain restrictions as to how one is installed.
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.
Another benefit of building an aluminum carport over a garage is the effect it will have on your property tax bill. Generally speaking property taxes are based on a percentage of the assessed value of your home. Making additions to your home will increase the assessed value of the home. When you increase the assessed value you will notice an increase in your tax bill. Building a carport will increased the assessed value of the home but to a lesser extent than building a garage.
