So you’re thinking about installing a metal carport to keep your vehicle safe from the elements? Great! But have you considered taking that idea to the next level?
Not sure what that would look like?
How about a carport and shed combo to provide all the benefits of a metal carport plus the utility of extra storage space that a shed provides?
Whether you already have a metal shed or carport with storage and want to add to it, or you are starting from scratch and weighing up your options, you can get a whole lot for your money by combining your metal buildings!
A metal carport shed combo, or even a metal garage carport combo, gives you a ton of options, so let’s take a look at some of the benefits you get for what is, in the grand scheme of things, a small additional investment.
When it comes to keeping the rain and snow off your car during the fall and winter months or stopping the sun from turning your car into a microwave during the summer, carports provide just the right balance of protection and ventilation.
Because of this, you know you can hop into your car whenever you need to, and it’s ready to drive. No need to run the A/C for 10 minutes or claw chunks of snow off the windshield before you hit the road!
Carports also protect your vehicle, reducing wear and tear and letting your car last longer.
Carports might be great for a lot of things, but storage is not one of them. Because carports have at least one open side, they tend to get used for storing vehicles and outdoor equipment, like your grill, for example. Basically, anything that doesn’t break or become unusable from getting a little damp.
But, if you were to stick a shed or garage at the end of your carport, you instantly have a solution to your storage problems. Now you can store everything in your shed and keep your carport area clear and accessible.
Again, because carports have at least one open side, they don’t offer the best security. However, having a metal garage or shed with a lockable door alongside your carport adds a tremendous amount of security as well as storage.
This means you can keep your more portable possessions secure while enjoying the benefits of a carport for your vehicle.
What sort of a cost could you be looking at for a carport shed combo and all the benefits that come with it?
Likely not as much as you think, especially if you have your carport and shed/garage installed at the same time by the same contractor.
Having both installed at the same time means you only have to prepare the site once, dig one lot of foundations, seek one set of planning permissions, have one group of contractors visit your property, etc., but you get to enjoy double the benefits!
What’s more, compare the cost of a metal carport and shed combo to building with brick, wood, or almost any other material, and you’ll find that you save more money by choosing metal.
You’ll also be able to install your building faster and spend less on maintenance costs over time.
A garage and carport combo is a great way to add storage, security, utility, and protection from the elements to many of your belongings, including your car. And, as is the case for pretty much any additional structure you might want to build, it makes sense to build with metal.
