What Is a Carport?

A carport is a covered structure used to protect cars. These structures do not have walls, so they are open and accessible spaces that make it easy to park your car underneath.

Carports are usually attached to the side of houses, but they can be a freestanding structure – it all depends on your taste. Carports are great options if you cannot afford to or do not have permission to build a full garage.

How Carports Add Value to Your Home

Carports can increase the value of your home, but perhaps not in the way you would expect. Adding a carport to your home does not mean your home value automatically rises. However, correctly installed carports can be the ideal home improvement to make your home more desirable to potential buyers.

If your home does not have a garage, carports are a less expensive option, and they come in a range of styles, sizes, and shapes. You can customize your carport to fit your home and vehicle’s specific needs. These unique spaces can complement any home and accommodate an extensive range of vehicles (even boats).

Carports also provide ample storage space, freeing up your home’s yard from clutter from cars or other machinery. Vehicles parked on your lawn can make your yard look messy, and detract from the overall aesthetic of your home. A carport provides a sense of cleanliness, organization and protects your lawn from damage.

Another reason carports are great additions to houses is that they can be constructed without changing or altering your home. Relatively cheap and quick to construct, carports are a great way to add value to your home, without having to complete lengthy, expensive or disrupting renovations to your home.
