What to Look for in an Aluminum Carport

What to Look for in an Aluminum Carport

Not everyone has access to a closed-off garage. Luckily, there are options for those of us who live in apartments, condos, or other situations where parking in a garage isn’t possible. One of those options is an aluminum carport.

Carports are affordable and easy to install. They provide shade from the hot Florida sun (protecting your vehicle’s paint) as well as shelter from the elements — including summer storms and inclement weather.

Consider these factors when choosing a carport:

Lifestyle and Use

Any household can benefit from an aluminum carport. While most structures are designed to comfortably house one vehicle, options are available to customize your aluminum carport to fit your unique wants and needs.

For instance, if you require space to both store your vehicle and other household and landscaping items, our friendly and knowledgeable experts can make style and capacity recommendations to accommodate your goals.

In addition, our skilled and experienced team members are in the know about building codes and community requirements, so you’ll never be placed in an uncomfortable or uncertain situation. You’ll know right up front the size and dimension parameters permitted for your specific region.

Extreme Weather

One big benefit of an aluminum carport is protection from the elements. Especially in the Florida summer months, you can expect a daily thunderstorm. Carports keep you and your belongings safe and dry.

In addition to the previously-mentioned sun protection, an aluminum carport also keeps your car free from dirt, dust, and bird droppings and helps minimize damage.

Finally, pets and small children will be shielded from the sometimes-harsh Florida elements when you install a quality aluminum carport.

Durability and Maintenance

Aluminum carports are highly-durable and can stand up to minor accidental dings and scratches caused by new/teen drivers, lawn and garden tools, large animals/pets, child’s play, and other scenarios. All our carports are coated with rust and chip-resistant material — giving you peace of mind that, with proper maintenance. your investment will last for years to come.

When appropriately secured to the ground, aluminum carports can withstand high winds and many severe weather scenarios. That means your structure will still be standing after the storms.

Along with simple installation, an aluminum carport is also easy to maintain. Aluminum is naturally rust-resistant and has a high oxidation tolerance. That means — unlike other metals such as steel — you can rest assured that the structure can stand up to heavy rains and severe weather with ease.
