Can Carports Increase the Value of Your Home?

Homeowners looking to protect their car can consider installing a carport on their property. It can protect the vehicle from natural elements like rain and sun and expand the lifespan of your vehicle, it can even save you from unnecessary parking space expenses. When you don’t have the cash or the layout to accommodate a garage in your home, consider having a carport built instead.

While carports certainly protect cars and are cost-efficient, there’s another benefit to having one constructed. A Carport, believe it or not, can improve the value of your house. How does it do that?

Carports Can Blend with the Home’s Architecture

Professionals that specialise in building carports in homes make sure that the structure blends with the architecture of your home. You can also have it customised so that it serves as a complementary feature, and it will look as if the property was designed with the carport in mind — not, as might be the case, a later addition. Moreover, since a newly build carport looks visually attractive, it can raise the appeal of your entire property.

Carports also Enhance Kerb Appeal

Speaking of a property’s appeal, did you know that outdoor aesthetic plays a role in raising your home’s value? Properties with great kerb appeal command higher prices and sell faster on the market. Thus, how your property looks from the outside could make or break a potential buyer’s first impression of your home — and carports make a good first impression! Not only do carports make your front yard look neat, but parking your car (or any other vehicle, such as a boat) neatly under a carport lets visitors appreciate the style and size of your front yard as well.

Parking in Style: Why You Should Have a Carport Built in Your Home

When the weather changes, our bodies adapt to it. When the sun is out, we bring out our bathing suits and sunglasses. To combat the cold, we wear whatever we can to keep warm.

What we often forget is that in cooler or wetter seasons, even cars get the chills. On hotter days, the cars suffer from intense heat, too. They may not breathe and speak like human beings, but they sure get hit by bad weather the same way we do.

An Umbrella for Your Car

That is why carports exist. They act as a barrier between your vehicle and the extremities of climate, preventing high and low temperature changes from damaging your car. Carports ‘protect your vehicle from harmful summer rays, winter snow, sleet or rain’, remarks SpeedLux Media.

Carports are especially economical for those with smaller homes and or where there is no money for a renovation for a garage. They are easy to install and having fewer walls than a garage, give good ventilation for storing vehicles.

Aesthetic Appeal

Outdoor spaces are the best places for garden parties. When you have a carport, just park your car in front of your house for a day to have a patio where you can invite guests for barbecue or wine nights. It is a trend these days to create a comfortable space with chairs and tables for a festive feel. Using your carport as a gathering area gives you more value for your money.

The demand for carport construction has surged in recent years particularly as a result of the unpredictable weather that can be experienced in Brisbane and surrounding areas. After all who wants their vehicle pummelled by large hail stones or torrential rain!

Experienced designers at Just Patios design and customise carports for clients in the Sunshine Coast and Brisbane. You name your ideal carport and we can bring it to life for you..
