Carports are extremely functional, if simple, structures. A standard carport includes little other than four supporting legs and a roof, which is enough to give you covered parking on your property without building a full garage. However, did you know that carports are not limited to that simple design? With some creativity, and through the use of the Build & Price tool on our site, you can blend features today to create an incredibly useful, durable building.
Solve a Problem
For some people, the appeal of a carport is strong, but it doesn’t quite meet all their needs. This is the case when someone wants covered parking and storage space but needs some of that storage space to be behind a locked door. You might not want to leave some of your valuable supplies or equipment out in the open under a carport, so you need an enclosed shed for those items. By adding a storage shed section to your carport, this problem is solved, and the new structure meets two of your needs simultaneously.
Avoid Two Projects
Of course, you could just build a carport and shed separately, rather than bringing them together into one structure. That might be the best solution for some people, depending on the specifics of their property and the access they need to both structures. However, if possible, it’s nice to avoid two construction projects, and you’ll appreciate the simplicity that comes from bringing them together. The finished product will take up less space than two different buildings, while still meeting your parking and storage needs nicely.
The Beauty of Customization
When you buy a carport and shed combo from American Carports, Inc., you won’t have to settle for a prefab design. We are all about customization, and that’s particularly important with this kind of building. You can think about what you’ll be using this building for and how it will be positioned on your property before you settle on all the various details that bring it together.
For example, you might want the door of the shed on one side so you can easily access it from another part of your property, while you leave the other end open for driving under the roof of the carport. Or you might want to partially enclose the carport by adding a wall or two to create something that is almost like a garage. Take your time to experiment with our Build & Price tool until you come up with a design that checks every one of the boxes on your list.
Quality is Non-Negotiable
If there is one thing you absolutely must have when picking out a carport, it’s quality materials and construction. No matter how your design comes together, make sure the company you are working with will meet your quality standards at every turn. It would be a shame to go through the time and effort to design the perfect structure only to have that building fail after just a few short years. A metal carport should be built to last, and it will be if you work with us on this project.
Be wary of any carport company that is offering to sell you a combination carport and shed for a suspiciously low price. We are proud to offer great value, but our prices line up with what you can expect to pay for solid materials and proper installation. Remember, if a deal for anything – even a carport – sounds too good to be true, it probably is. You’ll thank yourself later for working with a company that has a proven track record in this industry.
Don’t Settle for One or the Other
Aren’t sure if a carport or shed is best for your needs? You don’t have to make that tough decision. Instead, you can have both by bringing them together into a single design and ordering from American Carports, Inc. With lofty quality standards and a reputation for customer service, you’ll love the experience you have with us.
As a leader in this industry, American Carports, Inc. is a great place to shop for this kind of versatile structure. If you have any questions before placing an order, please contact us and we will be happy to help.
