Carports. Friday , October 13th , 2017 - 13:56:57 PM
Stand alone metal carports can be used as a gazebo or picnic area shelter in your backyard or at your cottage. If a double carport is used then as many as 4 picnic tables can fit underneath the roof. In the alternative, a few picnic tables plus a BBQ area would comfortably fit underneath a double carport. The addition of some plain netting or screen can keep the mosquitos out. With the right protection from the elements, outdoor gatherings can proceed in any type of weather or conditions.
There are generally 2 basic types of metal carports. There are stand alone carports and car ports that attach to your house or another structure. Within these 2 general categories of carports there are some sub-categories that pertain to the type of roof. Those carports that are stand alone carports tend to have shed or gable roves. Those carports that attach to the house tend to be flat roof carports or single slope or lean to carports. All types of carports serve specific purposes and none are better than the others.
Another consideration you have to make, before getting carport kits is ensuring you check with the local authorities if you require a permit before installing carport. This is because you might need one or there may be certain restrictions as to how one is installed.
