Buying a diy carport is a great way to protect your car, boat or caravan, and if done right, it can also add value to your home as well.
Here are a few things to consider in getting when buying a carport kit:
- Size – The carport must be practical in size and look right – think about the vehicles you are putting in and allow for some tolerance, particularly with height. If the carport is going near the house it’s good if it looks in scale with the house. A strongly built and designed carport always looks better than a cheaper lightweight carport.
- Roof Type – getting the roof type to either match or complement the roof of your house is a big factor in getting the most value for money. eg. If you have a house with Dutch Gables. look at buying a Dutch Gable Carport.
- Colours – Matching the colours of your carport kit to your house creates a seamless theme between the two structures. Excalibur Carports can offer you the entire range of Colorbond Colours to choose from, giving you a much better chance to improve your property.
The whole idea overall here is to make the carport look like it’s part of the whole environment, like it was meant to be there from the start. With a bit of thought and planning you can achieve the maximum value from your diy carport for your home.
