The San Antonio Movers Present the Comeback of Carports

What's the real point of having a carport? Well, the main purpose of the carport is meant to keep your car clean from the rain and snow. It's a simple structure with four posts and a roof that was actually quite popular back in the 1950s and 1960s according to MSN.com. It was mostly a place to park your car, but back in the day it was also a hang out, where you can turn up the music in the summer and enjoy a cold one with a couple of friends.

Over time the carport has been disappearing and gave way to two, three and four car garages. Some cities have even banned the carport to upgrade the housing stock. There are some advantages to having a carport and not only for the obvious reasons. A carport has “green” attributes and some might say can even look stylish. According to a 2005 University of Alaska Fairbanks study, found that attached garages had higher levels of toluene and benzene, gasoline-related pollutants. Thus, making carports more eco-friendly.

Carports can also give a nice “je ne sais quoi” to your house. You can't really decorate a garage except maybe for hanging something on the door. A garage door simply looks pretty blank and unwelcoming. A carport on the other hand can be well decorated and is way more interesting and inviting. An open-slatted cedar carport for example allows a lot of light inside and looks great. The San Antonio movers, your local San Antonio moving company, wants to remind homeowners that there are plenty of carport makers that focus on nice design such as Sankyo Tateyama Aluminum Inc. which sells several residential carports with and without solar modules.

Another advantage to having a carport is that they're versatile. At the Banbury house in Raleigh, N.C., architect John Reese designed an outdoor pavilion with a pool on one side and a carport on the other. When they want to throw a little party, they remove the cars from the carport and the area becomes a nice space with built-in speakers in the walls and simply a great area for a nice party.
