Why Choose a Single Aluminium Carport?

Last Updated Aug 16, 2011 · Written by Jaclyn Fitzgerald

If you are tired of parking your car on the street or out in the open, there is a solution.  A single aluminium carport can be easily attached to the appropriate side of your house or it can even be freestanding and it will give your car the protection it needs.  Here are some other reasons why single aluminium carports can be a great choice for your home.

Single Aluminium Carports are Attractive

One huge benefit of installing a single aluminium carport in your home is that they are a very attractive option.  They come in a range of styles from classic and elegant through to beautiful modern, curved designs.  In this way, they perfectly suit any style of home.  The aluminium used in the carport is also powder coated, so you can choose from any colour that is available in the powder coating range, allowing you to perfectly match the carport with your home’s colour scheme.

Single Aluminium Carports are Versatile

The beauty of having a single aluminium carport for your home is that they are versatile.  Of course, their primary use for most people is to shelter their car, but this isn’t the only thing that you can use your single carport for.  You can put a retractable clothesline underneath or a few lengths of cable to create an undercover area to dry your laundry.  You can also use the carport as an extra sheltered area when entertaining friends or even just having a barbecue with your family.  You can even use it as cover when doing some gardening work!

Single Aluminium Carports are Durable

Another benefit of having a single aluminium carport is that they are very durable. They will not rot, rust or corrode and they are completely impervious to termites.  You’ll also find that an aluminium carport can handle just about any type of weather with ease – storms, rain, high wind, coastal salt air, and so forth.  Aluminium carports are also very easy to clean; just wash them down with some water and a bit of detergent and you are done!

Single Aluminium Carports are Cost Effective

If you need somewhere to park your car while you are at home, the single aluminium carport is a very cost effective option.  It is much cheaper than building a fixed garage and the carport also comes in a range of price points to suit all budgets.  Single aluminium carports range from simple kit forms that you can put together over a weekend with the help of a mate through to sophisticated cantilevered designs that are fully installed for you.
