Nine Benefits to Carports and Owning One

Frank Lloyd Wright really invented carports, but Elephant Structures perfected them. We have the top of the line structures in the business, with more customization options for our building than anything else. Carports are quickly becoming the number one solution for extra storage on property in the United States. There are many reasons why, but below we have 10 benefits of carports that might explain why they’re becoming so popular.

The carport industry has gone over a lot of changes in the past half a century. We’ve been involved for quite some time, and have made a ton of improvements to our product with top of the line engineers. The reasons below explain the benefits of carports, but a large majority of the benefits are only present when you go with a top of the line company like Elephant Structures.

Weather

When you’re parking your car under a tree or just plain out in the open, rain, snow, ice, and the normal heat and light of the sun can cause extensive damage to your car over time. The best thing to do is to park it under a carport or garage. This will largely reduce the amount of weather your car experiences, at least while it’s parked at home.

Personal Safety

If you’re parking your car late at night, we’ve all felt the fear of the dark in those brief moments stepping out of your car. With a carport, especially if you close the sides and ends, you’ve got some added protection you will greatly appreciate.

Criminal Activity

Believe it or not, the exposed nature of carports can be more of a deterrent than an enclosed garage. The garage needs to be infiltrated, so with extensive security it can be secure. With a carport, if you keep the area lit it is a deterrent to criminal activity against your car because of the visibility.

Storage!

If it’s not apparent, the best things carports can be used for is storage! You can even install a concrete pad before installation and park your car outside to temporarily repurpose your carport for a makeshift pavilion on hot summer days for cookouts and the like.

Versatility

Like we mentioned in number four, the carports are not only for storing cars. Many of our customers use their carports to store things like RV’s, trucks, motorcycles, product, and much more. The Carport is meant to make your life easier in more ways than just protecting your car!

Convenience 

When you park your car in the heat of the summer sun, it can be a pain to sit on the leather seats, and may require you to air it out so you don’t get too hot in your morning commute. This isn’t nearly as a prevalent if you park your car under a carport, as well as many other conveniency issues.

Capability

If you decide to get a slightly larger carport you can store your lawn equipment underneath as well, and other tools in general. You can probably even create a small workshop area with a little creativity, or simply by adding a utility shed to your carport.

Easy to Purchase

We strive to make the purchasing and installation process of our carports as easy and stress free as possible. Call in to speak with a building advisor for free and purchase your building today. Or, you can customize your carport and purchase it online. Both methods include free delivery and installation!

Eco-Friendly

With the effort to keep our world green, more companies have been going green. In the building business, you won’t find a greener alternative than steel. Wood comes from deforestation, and steel is the only building material to retain so much of it’s strength and usability after recycling. Elephant Structures only sells eco-friendly buildings!
