Carolina Carports Are an Affordable Way to Protect Your Vehicle

Carolina CarportsDo you love your vehicle? Of course, you do! You’ve spent countless hours researching and visiting dealership after dealership to find the perfect one. Now, you’ll do everything you can to keep it in pristine condition and prolong its life. Each month, you take it for a professional car wash and wax. You’re also good about scheduling inspections, oil changes and tune-ups. In addition, you’re a careful driver and handle your baby with great care. However, one night you leave your vehicle outside and it rains overnight. While it may seem great that the rain can wash off all the dirt and grime from the previous day’s adventures, rain is actually harmful to your vehicle’s paint. Acid in the rain contains damaging particles and over time, it will show on the surface of your car or truck. It’s times like those that you need a garage or carport to protect your car from the potentially harmful elements.

The solution to all of these issues is simple…Carolina carports will protect your vehicles at a lower cost than building a garage. Who can help you achieve this goal? Carport Express is here to help!

 Not Today, Mother Nature!

As we already mentioned, rain is harmful to your car. But why? After all, rain is just water, right? Well, actually rain contains acid and is harmful to your car along with snow, hail, and pollen. When acid rain evaporates, it leaves behind watermarks and a thin layer of pollutants which can tarnish your car’s shiny paint job and cause it to rust. In addition, the longer the layer of pollutants stay on your car, the more damage it will cause.

Birds are cute except when they’re not. Don’t you hate discovering bird droppings on your car? You park it in your driveway the night before only to discover a pattern of white all over your roof and windshield! Another problem is pollen. Spring is a beautiful time of the year and it would be perfect if not for the pollen. In fact, pollen has such a high acidity that just a single grain can erode paint. Just imagine what an entire season of pollen could do to your car. Lastly, is hail. Small chunks most likely won’t cause damage; however, large chunks can. Just think what an entire sky full of big, heavy chunks could do to your car!

Don’t Let the Snow Fall!

Snow also can cause major erosion. While some people think that the weight of the snow load causes damage, that’s simply not true. Instead, snow picks up salt and other chemicals from the road which can then seep into your car. Plus, if your vehicle already has unpainted patches, scrapes or dents due to half-repaired damage, these chemicals will really go to town on your vehicle’s bare metal. Hence, rusting will occur even quicker. Moreover, like rain, snow also has acid in it. So, even if it snows directly onto your car without picking up salt or grime, it’s still very harmful.

Picture this: it snows in the evening and that snow load is sitting on your car all night long. That’s hours of exposure your car had to the harmful pollutants. Now, imagine your car is safely stored under the protective roof of an enclosed garage or steel carport. Problem solved!

Carolina Carports

Many people prefer carports over garages as they get the job done but at a fraction of the cost of a garage. A carport is a metal roof on sturdy support poles, but unlike a garage, it does not have sides. Thus, it provides a protective roof but is cheaper than a garage since it’s only a partial building. Furthermore, these metal structures are ideal for storing campers, RVs, tractors, loaders, pop-ups, and boats.

Additionally, metal carports are convenient. Are you tired of dealing with door openers? They can be a real hassle, especially when you’re late and running out the door to work. After all, you already have keys to worry about. Instead of dealing with door openers, you could just hop in your vehicle and drive away! Also, because they don’t have doors, they require very little maintenance and you’ll never have to worry about a broken garage door again! Besides convenience, did you know that carports come in multiple sizes? Yes, that’s right! It’s not one size fits all. Metal carports come in single, double, or triple. So, if you need extra space, these steel protectors can deliver! Lastly, these metal semi-buildings are easily transportable. So, if you ever decide to relocate, bring your favorite carport along for the ride.

Garages

If you’re looking to get the maximum amount of protection for your vehicle, then a garage is for you! Unlike a carport, they have sides and doors. Thus, offering full protection from the elements. Metal garages are durable and sturdy, making them a popular choice for many homeowners. Built to last, metal garages are able to withstand strong winds, snow, ice, and even hail. Unlike a carport, you can safely store small items in your garage and they’ll be safe and secure.

Barns

Do you live in the country and need a place to store your landscaping tools and other large equipment? We can help you design and create the perfect workspace!
