A carport is a covered structure used to offer protection to vehicles, primarily cars by using different types of materiel as roofing other than shade netting. The structure can either be free standing or attached to a wall. Unlike most structures a carport does not have four walls. Carports offer less protection than garages, however they are great looking, durable and allow more ventilation. A carport is therefore a cheap and effective device for the protection of your assets.
