If there’s one thing other than our homes that we tend to be more proud of, it’s our method of transportation. If you’re looking for a way to further take care of your vehicle, look no further than a carport from Cliffside. A simple solution that acts as an effective alternative to a garage, carports are a simple yet welcome addition when your home isn’t blessed with much surrounding space. And what’s even better is that generally speaking, carports don’t require planning permission.
Here are 10 ways homeowners can benefit from having a carport installed – you may not even know you needed one in the first place!
1. Carports will keep your car safe from the harshest of elements
Installing a simple uPVC carport will keep your car under efficient and effective protective cover, protecting it from any possible weather damage such as paint fading, weathering, or hailstone damage. What’s even better is that by installing a carport on your Lincolnshire home, you will no longer have to worry about defrosting your windscreen on winter mornings – something we know our customers love to hear.
2. Additional space of carports gives versatile uses
One of the best benefits of a carport is that they boast a variety of versatile uses. Great for use in the warm weather, a carport can be a great place to relax when you require extra outside space for BBQs and family gatherings. Or, a carport also offers a handy shelter for storage of anything that may be at risk of wear and tear such as patio heaters, tools, and garden furniture to name a few. You could also double up your carport as an outdoor porch – their versatility is endless.
3. Protection against theft and vandalism
Housing your car underneath a carport helps to protect it from possible vandalism or other random attacks from unwanted intruders. As opposed to a garage, the beauty of using a carport to protect your vehicle is that your car is visible, meaning that you can always keep a close eye on any potential wrongdoing.
4. Suitable for any type of vehicle
Despite the namesake, carports can be used to house any vehicle you own and not just simply cars. Many homeowners have carports installed on their properties to houseboats, RVs, motorcycles, and trailers. All forms of transportation can be adequately shielded with a carport.
5. Carports are easy to use
The majority of carports act as canopy-like structures. This means that they do not require doors and as such, are convenient when you come home from shopping and need to carry your groceries. No longer will you need to struggle opening doors whilst being encumbered with items or find yourself in a rush in the morning.
6. Carports are an energy-efficient storage option
A carport eliminates the need for electric door openers, bright lighting, and any other energy-draining features. This means that your home’s energy output will be reduced, even having a positive impact on your financial bills.
7. A shaded environment is afforded
If ever you’d like to enjoy the natural beauty of the outside but don’t want to deal with excessive summer heat, your carport will provide more than enough shade. Also, if you have a car that has leather seats then a carport is an absolute must! This is because it will protect your car and your car’s interior from getting too hot, ultimately protecting it from any potential damage and saving you time in having to air it out on your morning commute.
8. Carports eliminate the need for other storage units
Providing mass amounts of outside space, a carport can act as an alternative to a storage unit you may otherwise feel the need to rent. Each carport is designed specifically to your required shape or size so your home will never suffer from a lack of storage space for any tools, boxes, or other items.
9. A stylish and simple design
Carports by their very design, are sleek, simple, and minimalist. Made from high-quality uPVC and polycarbonate roofing, carport designs can be tailored to easily tie in with your house’s exterior aesthetic. What’s even better is that they are available in a range of RAL colours from Chartwell Green to Anthracite Grey, so no matter your colour preference, we’re confident that we’ve got one for you.
10. Carports are perfect for the single homeowner
Believe it or not, a carport can be helpful for elderly or single homeowners in Lincolnshire. As their structure usually sits close to your home’s side, you don’t ever have to worry about pulling up too close if you have it installed to the right of your home. There is never a need to open your passenger door!
