A carport is a wonderful addition to any home. They provide a place to keep your vehicles protected from the elements without the expense of adding a physical garage. You can find carport kits in a wide range of prices and styles. Here are a few ways to save some money with your carport.
Metal carports are designed to provide slightly more coverage and protection than a canvas carport. In most cases a metal carport with just the frame and roof is going to be an inexpensive option, starting around $500. You can find kits made of aluminum that can be put together yourself saving you money on installation. If you want a heavier grade material, you may want to consider a steel carport structure.
If you don’t like the look of a traditional carport frame and have some extra money, you can look at a carport building instead. These aren’t as difficult to install as a garage, and can be freestanding anywhere you choose to place them. These structures will run anywhere from $1000 to $10,000 depending on the style you choose. The more expensive ones tend to be placed on a full slab and look like barns.
If you haven’t decided what kind of carport you want, a quick Internet search can show you a huge variety of options. This can help you narrow down what is available in your price range. You can often find great deals online for your carport structure.
