Carolina Inc. carries three basic styles of carports including regular. boxed eve. and vertical roof carports. Regular basically constitutes a structure that is framed and covered but open on all sides. Boxed eve and vertical roof models are structures that can also be open on all sides or completely closed with doors for access. The main difference in these two styles basically has to do with the roofing and framing. Both are equally effective at protecting your personal belongings.
The other option for choosing a carport is a fully-metal design. All portable carports are designed with a galvanized steel frame to prevent corrosion when exposed to water for longer periods of time. and in the case of a fully metal carport. the roof is metal. as well. With a slightly peaked design. the roof made from galvanized steel is coated with silicon to last for several years. In fact. metal carports. on average. are designed to last twenty years before being replaced. As far as protecting a car or any vehicle underneath. the steel roof is naturally waterproof and UV resistant.
Many years ago. garages were made out of timber. This material had a major problem of getting damaged from termites and excess water accumulation. These days the use of metals is more popular in the construction of carports and garages. The basic requirements of a carport are that it should be able to protect the vehicle from water damage. mould and mildew. harmful sun rays. storms and strong winds.
With these two basic options. carports have valance and enclosed styles. If the vehicle or investment is being stored for several months at a time. an enclosed carport has the necessary features. with polyethylene on all sides to provide full coverage. An enclosed style. in some cases. becomes a hindrance when moving a vehicle in and out of a shelter. and in such cases. a valance carport. one with a top and open sides. is ideal.
