WOODEN CARPORTS: CLASSIC CHOICE

Carport Knowledge, by admin.


If you are a person who goes by earthy, conventional looks, the wooden carports are the best thing for your car. And in case you wish to make your carport right next to a garden or lawn, then it’s a double advantage as they end up complimenting each other.

A simple wooden carport looks as much part of the home, even if built much later. This is where wooden carports score over metal carports. It’s usually difficult to match metal carport structures to the look of the lawn/garden and the house. To increase the aesthetic sense of the wooden carport you may choose either asphalt or gravel flooring depending on the surrounds. I choose gravel as I had cobbled stone pathway leading to the main entrance of the house.

I would always suggest a wooden carport to all those people who have Trailer Vans, RVs or boats. They are easily detachable and convenient to pack and carry around or stock in the attic. Metal carports that way can be heavy and rather unmanageable.

In case you are aware of basic skills of being a carpenter, then it shouldn’t be hard for you to be build a wooden carport with an extra hand. Purchase a wooden carport kit in case you aren’t sure about the quality, strength, thickness or dimensions that would be needed depending on your vehicle or area available. Wooden carports with flat roofs are the easiest to build.

However be aware that frequent maintenance is required for wooden carports than metal/aluminum carports. Regular scraping of the surface, painting and staining is very important depending on the climate of your area else the wooden carport can suffer quick damage and make it look very old.

I don’t mind the hassle of frequent maintenance, considering that every time I redo my wooden carport, I get to change the color which matches the look of my home and lawn without making it look very industrial as in the case of metal carports.

So in case you’re fine with spending the extra bit of money, choose wooden carports instead of metal or aluminum carports.
