Carports and Garage Sheds to Protect Your Vehicles from Harsh Weather

By Abner Kent Subscribe to RSS | August 14th 2012 | Views:

Cars and other four-wheeled vehicles are things of absolute necessities these days. So much so that many households have more than one vehicle for each adult member, not counting trailer vehicles such as camper.

Even though seemingly sturdy looking, cars are delicate things. In addition to intrinsic mechanical failures, cars are prone to damage due to the vagaries of weather conditions – sunlight, rain, snowfall, winds and storms. Possible problems could be corrosion, dents, chipped paint, faded paint, punctures, body cracks, chipped or cracked tyres, and many others.

Even if the area you live in has moderate climate all year round, keeping your vehicles in open may not be the good choice. Many homeowners use makeshift solutions such as covering vehicles with tarpaulins or constructing temporary sheds but that are also not enough to provide complete protection from weather elements.

If you are short of space or budget then carports could serve the purpose. These are shelters for cars usually built beside a house and consisting of a roof supported by posts. All the sides of carports are normally open but you can cover them with tarpaulins during rains or in windy or snowy conditions. A better alternative to carports are garage sheds; these structures have three sides covered with front open.

If you are a DIY person then carports and garage sheds are relatively easy to construct and erect. Ready to assemble garage kits are available with full instructions on how to construct them. You only need to search online for suppliers of kits. For durable and stylish sheds, however, it is better to have them constructed from professional shed manufacturing firms. The main advantage of carports and garage sheds is that they are much cheaper in cost compared to permanent garages.

Even carports and garage sheds don’t provide full support against weather elements. These might be suitable of temperate climates or regions but not suitable for areas having excessive rains and snowing. Permanent, strong, all weatherproof garage is what you require to protect your vehicles. A fixed garage not only saves your car from the effects of weather but also from thieves. Moreover, being closed from all sides you can also store in it car accessories, spare parts, spare tyres and car repair tools and equipment.
