Carport Upgrades to Consider With Your Home Renovation

Construction & Contractors Blog

The carport is one area of the home that often is overlooked during renovations. You may feel like there is not much you can do to upgrade it. The truth is, there are several upgrades you can make to your carport. Before you call your local carport builders, consider these upgrades. Each upgrade has year round benefits and can make the area more than just a place to house your vehicles.

Frame Roof Upgrade

One of the ways you can make your carport more attractive and make it look like an extension of your home, is to add a frame roof upgrade. The frame roof gives a finished look to the carport and can be done with the same material as your home. You can also add lighting and outdoor ceiling fans to keep the area comfortable throughout the year. The frame roof can also be extended to give you a two car or larger covering.

Steel Beams

If you have a carport with traditional timber beams, you may want to consider a steel beam upgrade. This upgrade will give you several benefits. One of the leading benefits is the durability in all weather conditions. The steel beams hold up to high winds as well as severe rain and thunderstorms. They can also hold up to humidity and pests. This gives you a low-maintenance option for your carport construction that can last for several years with little to no repairs. You can match the steel beams with steel trusses and steel fabricated roofing as well.

Retractable Walls and Door

Many carport builders will offer options to cover the sides of your carport and give you a full enclosure option during various weather conditions. One of the options is to add retractable walls and a retractable entry door. These walls can be made of a steel or canvas material. When they are not in use, they can retract into a compartment located along the roofline of the carport. When they are needed, they can be lowered and secured in place. This keeps your vehicles safe during storms and protects other items you may have in your carport area.

When you are ready to begin renovating your carport, contact your local carport builders. They can take your ideas and help you make them a reality. They can also suggest other upgrades that may work for your carport and the curb appeal you are looking for.
