If you are in the market for a carport, pre-fabricated carport kits can be a great option.
Now you may be thinking “couldn’t I just design and build a carport myself?”
Well…. Here are just 3 of the benefits of buying carports in kit form:
1. Carport Kits come pre-cut and pre-punched
Have you ever made something completely from scratch where you had to cut or drill every part of what you were making? How long did it take you? How much material did you have to buy?
Carports that are pre-cut and pre-punched give you the best value for money out there.
• Minimal amount of wastage involved. You only pay for the steel that you need, and not the excess steel if you were to buy the set lengths and cut them down.
• Saves you time when installing, as most of the work of drilling and cutting the steel has been done. You will also save money if you use contractors or installers because they can erect the carport in much quicker time than if they are making it up from scratch.
• Carport kits come with all the brackets that you need to connect the carport together correctly, saving you money and time if you had to get the brackets fabricated yourself.
2. The engineering for carports in kit form is already done
A much bigger benefit than some people realise.
It saves you the time of having it designed, drawn up, and certified by an engineer.
It also saves you a substantial amount of money.
Custom engineered carport designs and sizes are also sometimes available today. There may be engineering factors to consider, and sometimes extra cost, though this is usually minimal.
3. Carport kits can be delivered complete to your door
Carports in kit form can usually be delivered to most areas, and for a very reasonable charge. You don’t have to drive around sourcing various materials from multiple suppliers, trying to get the best deal, using your valuable time and wearing your car out.
There are many more reasons for buying a carport kit over making one from scratch. Why not use what is readily available to you today, to get the best deal and the best carport for you.
