Reasons Why a Carport Can Be Your Car’s New Best Friend

by Eva Taylor Consultant

Many residential and commercial property owners in Dallas, TX turn to carports as an effective, economical, and efficient alternative to building a garage -- And if you are living in the Fort Worth area, this trend is worth following. One of the best investments you can do in your home or business is having metal carports and aluminum patio covers installed, and below are only some of the reasons why.

Protection from Weather and Outside Elements

The weather in the Dallas, Fort Worth TX area, as well as other external factors, can be harsh on your car. If your vehicle is parked on the street, throughout the year it is bound to brave through sudden hail storms, harsh winters, continuous harmful sunlight, and strong rains and winds. In certain residential areas, there is also the risk of bird droppings, falling leaves and branches, and animal scratches, to name a few.

As the months and years go by your car is bound to age and become vulnerable to damage faster. Among the problems to prepare for include fading or chipping of paint, the damaged battery from high temperature stressed tires, and broken glass and windshield. A well-built metal carport protects and helps increase the life span of your car.

Low Cost and Maintenance

Carports fort worth provides all the necessary protection your car will need at the fraction of a traditional garage’s price. This is why even commercial properties, i.e. warehouses, offices, stores, storage facilities, and farms are starting to invest in heavy-duty carports. In terms of construction, a garage will require a contractor and a team to build it from the ground up, which can take weeks up to a month. A carport, on another hand, is fairly simpler to assemble and can be finished in less than a week.

Despite the price and speedy installation, maintenance is also incredibly low. A metal carport is free from the risk of termites and rot. It also does not require all the costly parts of a standard garage door which need to be regularly checked and replaced.


Contrary to popular belief, carports come in a wide variety of styles, colors, and finishes and can be enclosed or open. They can be designed to match your house’s theme as well as be customized to meet other purposes other than protecting your car. You can put plants, lights, outdoor decoration and turn your carport into an extension of your garden -- highly recommended for gatherings and outdoor parties. Other people turn it into an extension of their house and serve as an extra storage room. In most cases, carports are also portable and can be moved to a different area.

There are countless possibilities, and you can ask your local carport provider in Fort Worth for recommended styles depending on your needs.
