Which Garage Best Fits Your Lifestyle


Building a garage on your property is a great way to add value to your property and to protect your vehicles. However, it is important to understand the types of garages and what will work best for your needs.

If you live in an area of the country that has pretty mild weather, a carport maybe the best option for you. A carport with a cover will allow the car to be protected from hail damage and since you aren’t experiencing snow, you don’t need to keep your car housed and protected from salt damage. There are carports that have overhead and side coverage as well, if you are concerned about protecting your vehicles from inclement weather or hail damage. If you have bigger vehicles such as RVs, carports are a great way to keep them safe and covered when not in use. The variety and choices for carports are up to you and your needs for your family.

If you happen to live in an area of the country that experiences all four seasons, you’ll need a standard garage. An attached garage to your house is convenient when dealing with inclement weather, bringing in groceries or carting your family around town. The attached style allows you to skip going outside and go right into your house. If the weather in your area stays pretty mild or you aren’t concerned about stepping outside to get into your house from your garage, you may want to choose a detached garage.

American Steel Carports can help you achieve your garage dreams with various models and materials to choose from. If you have a larger family and/or own several vehicles, it may be better to choose a detached garage so you can fit more vehicles inside and not be limited to a space next to your house. Detached garages can also house other equipment and vehicles if you have a hobby that requires equipment like woodworking, fishing, off-roading, etc.

Your garage is more than just a place to park your cars, it can be an extension of your house as well as add more storage to your property. Your garage can be customizable and add some architectural flavor to your property as well as value. Having a garage that not only is functional for your family’s needs but also is built exactly the way you want it to be is important when you are making the investment.
