Protecting your vehicles from the elements is what metal carports do best. They offer shelter from the sun’s UV rays, which can damage paint, tires, and upholstery. A metal carport will also keep snow from piling up on your car. While the sheer weight of piled snow doesn’t necessarily pose a threat, melting snow and snow that collects under a vehicle are what can cause damage, according to Boston.com. Moisture from melting snow can seep into a car’s inner workings and cause rust, and can even set off a slow decline in performance of systems such as the brakes.
Many carports are open on all four sides, or at least along three sides, so you may wonder if the protection they provide is enough. The fact is that a basic carport does offer valuable protection against the elements, but you can always opt to have a carport built onto your home and include a side wall in addition to a shed. That will not only increase the protection a metal carport provides your vehicle, but the shed offers a convenient place to store yard equipment when not in use, sheltering it from the elements, too.
