A carport is a covered structure used to offer protection to vehicles, primarily cars by using different types of material 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.
