What is an Open-Sided Carport?
Easy Access Carports
An open concept carport is one that is devoid of walls, making entering and exiting your vehicle easier. Carports with just supports and roofs are more affordable and are an excellent way to protect your car from the outdoor elements. Many homeowners opt for this type of carport if they have less room to work with in their driveways. Others decide to use them to keep their car from environmental factors like wind-blown debris, weather, sapping trees, and animal droppings. These structures are an excellent way to add value to your property and will withstand the test of time.
Open-sided carports are great in Austin's residential, commercial, and industrial areas. They help apartment complex residents feel safer and can act as a starting structure for things like solar panels and lighting. We welcome any and all questions regarding open-sided carports or read more below.
