How Would You Like To Get Started
What are the advantages of a Carport? Firstly a carport is a good alternative to a garage. It can add value to your property. It’s a cost-effective investment for your car and your property, protecting your car, caravan, boat or anything else you use it to store. It extends your house by offering a new shaded, protected space.
Still not sure if a carport is right for you? Read on for our three reasons to install a carport in your home.
Of course, the main reason to get a carport is to protect vehicles – such as cars, utes, caravans, or boats – from environmental damage. We know how unpredictable and dangerous Brisbane weather can be, from harsh sunshine to heavy hail (all Queenslanders know the struggle of hopping into their sun-soaked car just to be burned by the seatbelt or steering wheel!).
Weather can be extremely damaging to vehicles, and a carport will extend the vehicle’s life and stop you needing to take it in for extra services and repairs. In some cases, your car insurance may not protect you from weather damage, so it is vital to make sure you have protection. A carport keeps your vehicle looking clean and bright, without fading, cracking paint, also increasing its resale value when you next upgrade.
There are so many exciting ways to use a carport to enhance your home. If your house and garage are overflowing with things that could be kept outside instead, you can use your carport to free up your home and bring back some organisation and fresh air. A carport creates an extra space on your property, which can be used for storage of not just a car but other objects, freeing up space elsewhere.
You could use a carport rather than a garage already on the property, and then renovate the garage into a new bedroom, work-from-home office, or lounge. You can also use your carport as a shaded area for outdoor time or entertaining, meaning it can be an alternative to a patio. By concreting or tiling the floor, you can have it as a multipurpose space, where you can simply move your vehicle out for a day and add an outdoor dining set to use it as an entertaining area!
A carport is a low-cost, low-maintenance value add to your house. There are so many ways a carport can be used to bring value to your property and your lifestyle. The versatile home extension can be a huge boost to your home’s value if you consider selling or renting it in the future.
You can also use your carport to save money on insurance for your vehicles. Insurance companies often take into account where your car is stored when giving you a quote. Having a carport is much more favourable to an insurance company than having it out on the street or in a patch of grass, completely unprotected. You can even use the extra roof space for solar panels, so the carport is helping save you even more money.
