Build a carport with Carroll Architectural Shade to provide some style and protection for your belongings.

While you may know that you can design awnings for your front door and back patio with Carroll Architectural Shade, do you also know that you can build a sturdy carport? Our aluminum awnings are especially suitable for these driveway covers. When you install a carport, you can provide a range of benefits to both your home and your vehicle. The following benefits are some of the best reasons to build a carport with Carroll Architectural Shade. 


Constant exposure to the elements can harm any vehicle. Paint can fade, metal can rust, or your car can quickly become covered in debris and pollen. When the weather is rough, hail or freezing rain may even damage your car. When you park under a carport, you protect your vehicle from direct exposure to all seasonal weather. 


When you enter your car after letting it sit in the sun, it is not comfortable. Your car may take a while to cool off, and your steering wheel and seats may be extremely hot. When you build a carport to cover your driveway, you provide ample shade for your car and prevent heat from building up inside. Additionally, you have a little extra protection from the rain, so you don’t have to worry about rain coming inside when you open your door. 


You may build a carport over your driveway to protect your cars, but you don’t have to use it for that one purpose. This type of shade product can provide a shaded workplace, an area to collect children’s toys and protect your yard equipment. You can even use this space as an impromptu patio if you need protection from rain during an outdoor gathering. 


An aluminum carport is highly user-friendly and easy to add to your home. There are no motors to worry about, and the solid structure requires minimal maintenance while it can withstand a range of weather conditions. 

Added Value

Building a garage is an expensive undertaking, which is why many people opt to build a carport to provide the shade and protection they need. Fortunately, many other homeowners appreciate a carport, and its addition to your home boosts its value and curb appeal.
